Artist still waiting for her big break. Married Dave shortly after they graduated university. In charge of most of the aspects of Dave's life that don't involve writing, for his own good.

Stan Thompson

Stan Thompson

Dave's biggest fan. Sat next to him in primary school. Lucy was sleeping on his couch before his block of flats burned down. Spiked purple hair and exclusively black clothes. Unknown taste in music, terrible taste in anime.
