Characterisation of Nursey
- Nursey is a character of color, with different headcanons around about his exact ethnic heritage (he is often written as biracial).
- He went to Andover, so is probably economically privileged, and may be portrayed as somewhat pretentious or hipster-ish.
- abominableobriens has written about Nursey's possible BPD, and how this relates to his canonical focus on "chill"
- His focus on "chill" also likely relates to his experiences as a Black man in the USA
- He is also known for being clumsy off the ice, e.g. #NurseyPatrol
Characterisation of Dex
- Dex is white, red-haired, and from a less economically privileged background - other characters mention in the comic about his efforts to save money, and there are other class markers seen in the comic.
- He talks about fishing in the summer
- He knows how to fix a washing machine and other plumbing/DIY skills
