Judalene Cheetham loves dressing up freaky geek style at nerdy conventions and when not creating costumes is gaming it up on all manner of consoles 'til the early hours of the morning. This is one addiction she aint going to rehab for, that, coffee and Pokémon.

Finn Hogan has enjoyed virtual worlds more than the real one since the moment he discovered none of his favorite animals were actually real. He now spends most of his spare time in agonizing over moral choices in RPGs and occasionally checking to see if he has spontaneously developed any superpowers. (He still hasn't)

Norm enjoys cuddles, a good thick book and long walks on the beach. And by that he really means headshots, teabagging and insulting your mother over TeamSpeak. We think he needs to get out more.
