Meet the characters of Alien Service
Dave considers himself to be leader of the hapless group because he once held the prestigious position of ship's pilot. He also holds the distinction of being the first being on his planet terminated from a position in centuries.
"A shining example of what not to do."
He is looking to have the most fun with the least effort.
"Sounds better than less fun with more effort, doesn't it?"
Julio would offer that he's the leader because he was in charge of a manufacturing facility.
"So, I wasn't in charge on anyone, and the machines never really made mistakes or required anything from me, but I was in charge."
Julio hopes that somehow he was sent to Earth because of his dedication. He is good natured and is eager to please. He is definitely eager to please one of his current room mates.
"SHUT UP! If she hears you'll ruin it for me."
Julio hopes to get an Earth education as well.
"My 31st century literature degree didn't help me much back home. I think the "Humanities" sounds like a useful degree.
Mary thinks she's in charge because he says so. "Julio agrees. Don't you Julio?" On her home world, she was an artist whose work was held in low regard. "They didn't get it." Her presence on Earth may be due to an unflattering portrait title "The Art Minister: A Portrait in Incompetence" and an interpretive dance entitled "The Primitive Cultures Ministry Can Suck It." "Good art arouses emotion. The Minister himself seemed quite emotional about it. I think it worked." She quickly discovers that there are certain advantages to being an attractive female. "The males here are stupid, but generous." She might be accused of taking advantage. "Why not take something that is given to you?"
The Alien A.I. Avatar
The alien's central computer is know as the Broad Range Analytical Database or just call him Brad for short (similarities of the acronym and a common earth name are purely accidental.) B.R.A.D. appears as an alien hologram that is projected from a phone. B.R.A.D. lacks a real body of his own, so all his experiences are through others. That and the pop culture and media of the worlds the aliens visit. He is known to emulate the pop culture references from his huge database.
Rick is the alien's neighbor, landlord, and manager of Sub Co. Rick ends up hiring Dave to work at Sub Co. He is a sandwich shop intellectual who loathes the notion of entitlement. He likes to dispense what he calls "educational abuse" to customers who annoy him. He may or may not hold an advanced degree. "Titles. Meh." Some say he bought the house using royalties from a book he wrote. "The book is old news. NEVER bring up old news." A few former customers think that the only reason he has never been fired from Sub Co. is that he owns it. "The baying of Douchebags."
