I've been playing D&D with Vo Minh Mcburney for five-ish years now, meaning I've seen a lot of his ridiculous characters die in a lot of ridiculous ways. He's also a pretty ripping draftsman, which the above video hints at but fails to capture in full glory. The characters seen here are (in order of appearance):
Minhyun: This dude is technically a Warforged Wizard from the 4e game we did, but his origin story rules. He started life as a homunculus created by the evil wizard M'gurk. M'gurk was a transmuter with brain parasites (technically his brain was evolving into another life form trapped in M'gurk's skull -imagine Krang from TMNT. The party eventually battled the Brain Monster that erupted from M'gurk's cranium, which used stats for a Hydra). Minhyun was one of a long line of minions tasked with caring for M'gurk's gross menagerie of monstrosities. Minhyun took pity on a failed experiment named Pest (a constantly mutating pug/ alligator/ dragonfly thing who was supposed to be euthanized), and he raised the creature in secret while he went around absorbing esoteric lore from M'gurk library of magical librams, folios, and grimoires.
Minhyun modified his chest cavity into a kind of pet carrier, and Pest hangs out there when he's scared or tired. When the party met Minhyun and Pest no one was quite sure which one was the wizard and which was the familiar. That is awesome.
