Characters

Dave Starling

Dave lives in the no-mans-land of IT. Stuck between technical and senior management, he struggles to find meaning to his life. Well, let’s be honest, who doesn’t?

Flux Larson

Flux is a good man, working in a bad company. He wants to help Dave, but doesn’t really see the point. In anything.

Chris Tackle


Chris now works for Dave. He is a developer with the catchphrase “Sorry folks!” that doesn’t usually bode well.

Brenda de la Rue


Brenda studied management consultancy at school. She knows nothing about IT, people, or pretty much anything else. Brenda was born to work in corporate IT.

Penelope Crank


Penelope works in Dave’s team and runs the mainframe systems. Nobody knows what that is, so they give her a wide berth. Plus she is a bit snarly and unlike everyone else, seems to get things done.

Lars Effendic


Lars works in IT Security. That is all you need to know.

Justina Goose


Somebody has to be nice, and it’s Justina. She runs the ROFL team and is a peer of Dave’s.

Peter Ness


Peter Ness is the Head of Risk for Brenda’s team.
Managing risk in an organisation is a tough business, but someone has to not do it, and that is Peter.

Timothy Useful



Timothy is Head of Ops for Brenda’s team. He doesn’t seem to get on with Peter Ness for some reason.

Maddy Shovel


Maddy is Brenda’s assistant. Which means that she pretty much runs the department.
