Rutger: A small little man that is shaped like a ball. A Realitant from the 11th Reality and Mothball's best friend. He is good at looking up information, but has a hard time moving around. Likes to cook and takes pride in preparing a meal for everyone by himself.
Mothball: Her father is Tolaseat, who is part of the army. A Realitant from the 5th Reality. She is about eight feet tall and speaks with a cockney accent, like most others from the 5th Reality. She was given her strange name when Bugaboo soldiers from the 5th reality were attacking her family.
Sato: A boy from Japan. He was also recruited through curious letters, and has a secret that makes him reluctant to trust anyone. His parents, who died, were once friends with Master George.

Reality - A separate and complete version of the world, of which there may be an infinite number. The most stable and strongest is called Reality Prime. So far, thirteen major branches off of Prime have been discovered. Realities are created and destroyed by enormous fluctuations in Chi'karda levels.
Command Center: Master George's headquarters in the Bermuda Triangle, where Chi'karda levels are monitored, and to where his many nanolocators report various types of information.
The Factory: Located the the Thirteenth Reality, it is where Mistress Jane "manufactures" her abominable creations.
Fourth Dimension: Another dimension that is as different from ours as the oceans are from outer space. Hardly understood, and with limited research available, because it's never been explored before, the Fourth is breached when Tick and Mistress Jane battle it out after the incident with the Blade of Shattered Hope. The Void of Mist and Thunder is spawned from this dimension.
Nonex: When Alterants meet, one disappears and enters the Nonex. This area is a complete mystery to the Realitants.
Fourth Reality: Much more advanced technologically than the other Realities due to the remarkable vision and work of Hans Schtiggenschlubberheimer.
Fifth Reality: Quirks in evolution led to a very tall human race.
Eighth Reality: The world is covered in water,k due to much higher temperatures that were caused by a star fusion anomaly triggered in another galaxy by an alien race.
Eleventh Reality: Quirks in evolution and diet led to a short and robust human race

fanaticism: Fanatic outlook or behavior especially as exhibited by intense, excessive enthusiasm, unreasoning zeal, or wild and extravagant notions on some subject.
Alterant: Different versions of the same person existing in different Realities. It is extremely dangerous for Alterants to meet one another.
Barrier Wand: The device used to wink people and things between Realities and between heavily concentrated places of Chi'karda within the same Reality. Works very easily with inanimate objects, and can place them almost anywhere. To transport humans, they must be in a place concentrated with Chi'karda (like a cemetery) and have a nanolocator that transmits their location to the Wand. The wand is useless without the Chi'karda Drive, which channels and magnifies the mysterious power.
Blade of Shattered Hope: A weapon created by Mistress Jane that allows her to harness the power of dark matter and utilize the linking of her Alterants to sever a Reality from existence.
Chi'karda: The mysterious force that controls Quantum Physics. It is the scientific embodiment of conviction and choice, which in reality, rules the universe. Responsible for creating the different Realities.
Nanolocator: A microscopic electronic device that can crawl into a person's skin and forever provide information on their whereabouts, Chi'karda levels, etc.
Quantum Physics: The science that studies the physical world of the extremely small. Most scholars are baffled by its properties and at a loss to explain them. Theories abound. Only a few know the truth: that a completely different power rules this realm, which in turn rules the universe: Chi'karda.
Karma: A mysterious force that has been studied for years by a team within the Realitants, led by Gretel. Its powers are unpredictable, but it's believed to heighten the strength of good or evil, depending on who wields it.
Soulikens: An imprint or stamp on Reality, created by natural energy and Chi'karda, that becomes a lingering piece of one's self that will never cease to exist.
Voids: Tick's name for the monstrous creations that are spawned from the Void of Mist and Thunder.
