(I’d never heard of this webcomic before, so I’m getting all my info from the Wiki. So these are mostly vibes that I get from the character.

Frey - Definitely a mustelid of some kind, I’m thinking a sable? Something that reflects independence, resourcefulness/high observance, and opportunities for manipulative tendencies.

Jen - I couldn’t find much information on her other than she’s a graffiti artist who values freedom and transparency. So perhaps a Eurasian Hoopoe? Something adventurous, assertive, and aware, but still impulsive and intuitive.

Vance - Biggest vibe I get from him is Southern African Hedgehog. Anxious, passive, sensitive, but can get stuff done when he puts his mind to it.

Robin - Definitely a feline - I’m getting snow leopard vibes? Independent, guarded, stoic, self-assured.

Thanks for your submission! Feel free to discuss - like I said, I’m only basing this on the info I could get from the wiki, so someone who reads the comic would have more insight into these characters than me!

Fisheye Placebo

Original webcomic by Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)
Genre: Cyberpunk, Cypherpunk, Fiction, Psychological
Estimated Release Date: hopefully before March 2013

Living under an authoritarian regime is not fun. Extensive censorship meant no Facebook, no Youtube, and no porn.

Fortunately for Vance, being a hacker makes scaling the Great Firewall a walk in the park. With the free web at his fingertips, Vance should be happy but he’s not. Maybe there’s something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.

Maybe it’s a girlfriend.

So it’s not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? That’s just taking fate into your own hands, or something along those lines, right?

Too bad fate had other plans in mind and Vance is dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate.

College is meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and maybe not quite failed hacks, Vance will slowly come to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.

Is this what democracy looks like?
