The Cuddly Bunnies are a death metal band, but other than the sound of their music (which is a typical death metal sound), they aren’t into the occult, death and gore, etc. With the exception of some specific personality attributes of each person, they are pretty average people who became famous with their band. Overall, all of the members of the band actually like each other and they like being in the band. While after the band breaks up they go in other directions, but no band member ends up broke, addicted to drugs, or otherwise in the gutter.

MAIN CHARACTERS:

Kit Leporidae: Lead Vocalist (Male 30-45 Any Race) Can actually sing. Tall, good-looking, erudite, cultured, and a polymath. Has multiple degrees in obscure topics and/or can speak uncommon languages (Latin, Serbo-Croatian, Pashtun). Because he is so much more intelligent than most people, he can appear to those who do not know him as impatient, condescending, or bored, but he’s actually a decent fellow. It is simply exhausting sometimes having to go slow so that the rest of humanity can catch up with his brainpower. After band breaks up, he wins an Oscar for playing Rick Blaine (the main character originally played by Humphrey Bogart) in a remake of Casablanca and is nominated for a Noble Prize in physics for some groundbreaking research he worked on for fun with friends from MIT.

Peter Skutt: Bassist. (Male 30?s any race) Regular nice guy, suffers Krazy Glue injury. Channels his pain and suffering in to raising awareness of the dangers of Krazy Glue. After the band break-up, he gives up playing instruments of any kind and becomes a reknowned multi-tonal throat singer (e.g., as practiced by the Tuvan singers from Siberia or Tibetan monks).

Roger Taushan: Drummer. (Male 30s any race) Because of his tough upbringing, he developed an aggressive personality early in life (but the other band members are not afraid of him – he is not a psychopath). Learned to channel his aggression into playing the drums after being told he could not be on the high school football team because he was too mean. Frequently breaks drum skins because he hits so hard. After band break-up, he takes up anger management classes and gives up the entertainment business. He and his wife buy a farm and make award-winning artisanal cheese and become heavily involved in volunteering in their kids’ kindergarten class.

Martin Stencil: Band Manager; (Male 40-50 any race) Australian, sleazy, always trying to cut a deal; you get the impression upon meeting him that he would sell his own children if he could make a buck. Married 7 times; is broke because of all of his marriages and kids to support, hence he needs the Bunnies to reform so he can make some money. Calls all band members by shortened names, like “Rog” or “Pete” and insists that the band should call him “Marty.” The band refuses to and always calls him “Martin” as a way of letting him know he is not “one of them.” The band really does not like him very much personally, but they feel that he has done a good job in representing/promoting them over the years, making sure they were paid, etc. Martin is incapable of applying these good management skills to his own personal life, since he keeps falling madly in love with one gold digger after another.
