Casey Young is the cartoonist who creates Altermeta (Sex, Dragons, and Rock and Roll). Altermeta (Sex, Dragons, and Rock and Roll) is a serial strip that follows the lives of some typical Kuvrahk teenagers from the planet Cavris. Tabitha (or T-square if you value your life and limbs) is a female blue Kuvrahk who enjoys drawing, and usually is found carrying around her signature T-square. Of course her T-square isn’t just used for drawing, as Tabitha has a lightning trigger when someone says something that annoys her, and her skill of using her trusty T-Square in battle is quite formidable. She usually hangs around with her partner-in-crime, a male, green Kuvrahk named Sasha. Sasha, like most teenagers is struggling to find his identity, and usually has problems with some people’s perceptions of who he should be and what he should do (like his gym teacher). This causes him to be a little self-conscious, but when he is among his friends, whom he feels accepted, and then he opens up as a rambunctious, creative ball of energy. He sometimes has a little bit of a problem with his over-active imagination, when various objects around his house start talking to him, but he tries to keep it from getting to him. His best friend, a female pink Kuvrahk named Josephine, is an aspiring actress, the portrait of physical beauty. She can be a little scatterbrained at times, forgetting little things that aren’t too important to her world, but always remembers the important stuff, and is loyal to her friends. Rutherford (he prefers to be called Ruth) is the self-proclaimed intellectual of the group, and has some minor neurotic tendencies towards having to have everything done just the way he likes it. Of course he always is talking about something, and usually his main topic of discussion is how the others aren’t living up to his high standards.

Mat’s nickname is the Angry Zen Master, since he spends so much of his time in an angry state if mind and wields his anger like a knife against those who invoke his ire. Patti, Mat’s significant other, is only person Jamie has met that could not only withstand his brother’s anger, but also hold her own against him. Jamie loves going to the movies or interacting with past and current pop culture. He spends a lot of time talking about either topic with his brother or his girlfriend, Audrey. Usually Jamie is disappointed with the quality of movies that are being produced, as feels the mainstream Hollywood movie studios just rehash old ideas for unsuspecting consumers. Despite Jamie’s negative stance towards most movies, Audrey enjoys going with him, and can even manage to keep him silent for the duration of the film. Since Jamie tends to be very vocal and animate about his feelings, he can go off on tangents, explaining why a particular movie didn’t meet his expectations (much to the annoyance of his brother). Jamie and Mat are like most brothers, they play pranks on one another, disagree on things, or harp on one another, but they can find common ground to unite against, such as their War on Shitty Movies.

Joe has been assigned to building 12, a dorm room that is a mile away from the main campus, where the administration tends to stick the troublemakers, the crazy people, and the slackers. This is probably partially because the administration wants to make sure that the parents see only the cream of the crop walking around the campus, and partially due to their ineptitude. However it came about, now Joe lives with at least ten other students in the co-ed dorm. When Joe meet his roommate Jack, he is surprised to find that the dorm actually is under-crowded, and then unceremoniously tossed into another room to himself.

From his birth, Andy was destined for doing such great evil acts and supernaturally blessed, that Satan herself (as Satan can take on many forms and was once sexless as an arch-angel) took notice. Due to Andy's constant dabbling into blasphemous secrets of the occult, he has become very insane, and prone to erratic behavior.
