aria

Dislikes

  • The bourgeoisie
  • Prolonged silence
  • Pineapple

About Him

Born to a rich family, ARIA’s life was upended when he was sent to work among Browserland’s plebs. Smitten by HTML and his work ethic, he’s now his most loyal colleague, and a cup ramen connoisseur.

His constant talking and his intuitive empathy make him the spokesperson of the HTML/CSS/ARIA trio. His generous allowance also bankrolls their adventures.

Trivia

While his full name is WAI-ARIA, most refer to him simply as ARIA. Incidentally, it means "air" in Italian.

css

Dislikes

  • Itchy fabrics
  • Tidying up
  • Credit card chargebacks

About Him

The creative force of Browserland, CSS honed his fashion sense by dressing his childhood friend HTML in extravagant clothes (a hobby he still maintains).

While he made a career out of providing the web with the flourish he needs, he grows his creative skills by running an online shop on the side. Being deaf, he often communicates via sign language.

Trivia

CSS's math prowess is as keen as his fashion sense. It has to be: standard orgs keep adding ways to measure and color page elements.

git

Dislikes

  • Physical exercise
  • Desserts
  • GitHub’s attention

About Him

Localhost HQ’s resident catboy is as cute as he is changeable. Kind and sweet on the surface, his friendly demeanor can easily turn catty when provoked out of strangers’ sight.

Trivia

Git (the technology) will officially be 18 on April 7th, 2023. This equals 10010 years old in programming years.

github

Dislikes

  • Boredom
  • Spicy food
  • Being rejected

About Him

Corrupted by the evil tendrils of capitalism the Cloud, GitHub is Git’s online counterpart. Materializing near Git every chance he gets, their psychic connection drives his obsessive behavior.

Despite his villainous demeanor, GitHub is a good team player who loves social gatherings — not that he’d want anyone to know that.

Trivia

Cloud-based characters can instantly materialize wherever a web connection exists. Kinda like Castiel.

html

Dislikes

  • Talking
  • Waking up early
  • OSHA violations

About Him

The hardest worker in all of Browserland, HTML shows up wherever there’s a (web) job to be done. Quiet, dependable, and overworked, he somehow always manages to appear professional.

While he’d much rather spend time scrolling the web and listening to music, he can’t help being dragged into CSS and ARIA’s neverending shenanigans.

Trivia

It takes an average of 5 artists to get his face right. And even then, they might accidentally lose his headphones.

terminal

Dislikes

  • Noise and chaos
  • Bad hosts
  • Ill-behaved catboys

About Him

The most important member and live-in maid-pa of localhost HQ, Terminal is always ready to gently nudge beginners toward new adventures.

While some of his syntax might be dated, age gives no sign of slowing him down. Quick, powerful, and performant, his abilities are feared by beginners and revered by experts.

Trivia

Also known as shell. Any resemblance to Revolver Ocelot is completely accidental.
