Our young Solarian hero came to Earth to cure his rare case of cardiofrigidario (ice cream cone heart). Gustafer likes drawing, reading comic books, eating pine cones, and playing “Pancake Smackdown” with his pet and sidekick, Slim the Eel.
Oh, my. The proud parents. Frank and Florice Yellowgold own and operate family raisin butchery, Yellowgold’s Sweetchops. Florice’s cafe’ is popular for both its delicious raisin loaf and its special raisin-free offerings.
At age 16, Gustafer’s brother Ben is the youngest-ever senior at the Solarian Tinker College. Ben (along with the Solarian Aeronautics Institute) serves as mission control for Gustafer’s ongoing Earth adventures. Ben’s patented inventions include the Sunpod, the Hovering Gidget Whizzer, and most famously the Solaroid Camera Communication Device.
Gustafer and Ellen met as deskmates in a solar poetry class at the SolarianKnowledge Academy. Ellen is a budding artist and graphic designer, known for her painted sculptures, as well as consulting producer for all of the Yellowgolds’ product imaging.
Gustafer’s childhood hero-turned-mentor is the most famous retired stunt-cyclist/movie star comic book hero in all of Solaria. His advice often comes in the form of quotes from his own action movies.
