The best and quickest way describe Calvin would be to call him an alcoholic. That would not grasp the scope of this dynamic character and what he is all about, though in the strip he is ALWAYS drinking. He is also the guy that goes to a bar with you and ends up getting five numbers from girls AND guys. And oral in the bathroom. He also makes you question your sexuality and consider purchasing a case of KY, Heineken and a pack of smokes and try to seduce him yourself.
Have you ever been at a party/concert/quilting show and had someone walk up to you slyly and whisper in your ear Ã¢â‚¬Å“I just crapped my pants.Ã¢â‚¬Â Or better yet, show up and your house walk in without saying a word, look you in they eye and with a large smile on their face and you watch their eyes slowly look down to their own crotch and insinuate with nothing but facial ticks that they not only went and got their tongue pierced, they pierced the penis as well? If you did, I’m sure Dylan was that friend.
Ever have that friend who was fun to hang around with but you always sort of wondered if they where gay or not? That’s JN. His parents cursed him with only letters for a name leaving him to a life of explanations. Because of this he became somewhat of an introvert and reclusive. This went away after his teenage years when he made friends and decided to try and be creative. It is still evident in him if you look hard enough.
Though never seen cutting a line, it is assumed he is ALWAYS flying high on the white powder. He never has fully divulged how he lost his left arm, but it is speculated he tried to undermine a Colombian drug lord before he knew how life worked. It is rumored that said Colombian was recently used to make a canvas that Larry used to paint a picture of his mother on. The moral of his arm lose story? Never steal a 6 foot bunnies arm unless you are certain you can keep it. Larry claims he has his arm somewhere in his house, but no one has seen it.
He is a Tiki Guy and his name is really long, Iokepa Ka Nui Lana Mai Kahiki Akua. Say the whole thing and you might get a wish or three, no one knows because no one can say his full name. He has more magical powers then anyone in the universe and he uses them to screw with Larry. He does this because for several years Larry had him locked into a cage that he himself created. Since his release he is absent from everyone's life and Larry often wonders where he is. He tells them he is just watching and waiting for ‘something’ when in reality he is at a nursing home playing shuffle board.
