I’m not really a fan of ‘nature’. You can’t optimise it.

"I'm beyond miffed, Oort! I'm... I'm PEEVED!"Real Name: ‘Great of Face’

Age: 8 Fedolphus Years, 22 Earth Years

Species: Bufoboyant

Home Planet: Fedolphus, Earth Colony

Likes: Holoccordion, Enclosed spaces

Dislikes: Cats, Sharp Objects

Norman is unfailingly polite and gentle-hearted. He is incredibly skilled at spaceship maintenance and joins the crew as Ship Tinkerer.

As a Tinkerer, Norman is naturally curious. Despite his near-constant state of fear, he finds life on the spaceship exhilarating.

I’m beyond miffed! I’m… I’m PEEVED!!

Norman has a crippling hatred of cats as his home-planet, Fedolphus, is a kitten-breeding colony. He learned to play Holoccordion because the cats hated it, and takes off-planet work wherever possible.

Norman tends to get frustrated when away from the comforts of modern life. He also gets dizzy when too excited.


  • A running joke is that Norman is not sure what trees are. The only vegetation on Fedolphus are fake hedges, trimmed into pleasant garden displays.
  • Yug has calculated that Norman is most likely to die due to ‘Poisoned Milk’, which is all the more confusing as Norman does not even know what milk is.
