For reference, I'm going to write this Alternate Universe's version of Chase in the discussion, I encourage everyone to do the same.

Universe: Alternate Universe "ACME Retro"
Name: Chase Devineaux
Age: 27
Profession: ACME's Coordinating Instructor
Notes: Chase was once an ACME agent working in the 'International Crimes' Division. Today, he trains and graduates agents. He does not teach a specific class, but he is the terminus for level 1 academy students wishing to achieve agent status. Chase often coordinates with other instructors regarding graduation exams, and meets with them to gauge an agent's overall performance.

(I'll post mine too, mates, for ref.)

Name: Lee Jordan
Age: 19
Profession: Highest Ranking ACME Junior Detective
Notes: Lee Jordan is a go-getter and a bragger, he's currently the oldest detective in the Junior Detective program and he's proud of it. (I'm keeping his personality like the cartoons, so if you've seen it, not much changes.)


Known Aliases
Iv', Ives
Color #
Name: Ivy Monaghan
Age: 18
Profession: ACME Junior Detective
Notes: Ivy can best be described as a headstrong overachiever. She is quick to act, and often does so without thinking. Her temper is well known, though she holds the law in high regard and seeks to always do the right thing.

Ivy is an accomplished martial artist, and pilot in training.
Universe: Alternate Universe "ACME Retro"
Name: Zack Daniel Monaghan
Age: 14
Profession: ACME Junior Detective (Noob)
Notes: Zack has a genius IQ and photographic memory. He is also a linguist who can speak over 15 different languages. He's laid back, though not very self confident with new people.

Zack can always be seen in an oversized military jacket and his preferred mode of transport is his skateboard.

Euge, Earl Jr.

Name: Eugene Grovington
Age: 25
Profession: Pilot for hire, former marine, and professional redhead antagonizer (Private Military Contractor).

Eugene currently has no ties to ACME, but as an experienced pilot and gambling buddy of Chase, has been invited to consult with ACME's junior detective program for a short while. The brain/mouth filter that comes with age has not been installed yet, meaning dry snark flows unhindered in most situations.

Elsa, Lise

Name: Elsa Olsson
Age: 13 going on 14
Profession: ACME Junior Detective (Newbie)

Notes: Elsa is a second generation Swedish-American on her father's side. She has a love for ancient books and epic poems. She also wants to travel but her parents' meager means doesn't help much with that. By chance, her father found the ACME JD program and encouraged her to enroll for the summer. In addition to English, Elsa speaks Swedish and Spanish, the former was natural and the later was learned.

Universe: ACME Retro
Name: Sophie Conrad
Age: 26
Profession: Medical Student; Guest-Instructor, Survival Skills

Currently in her third-year of medical school, Sophie is visiting San Francisco for a semester at the UCSF. She has volunteered to be an instructor at ACME during this period, too.

Sophie arrived in the United States six years ago and lives on the Eastern Seaboard. She is adventurous and acutely observant, trained in the use of firearms and basic hand-to-hand combat, and enjoys the great outdoors.
Universe: ACME Retro
Name: Nace Bilby
Age: 25
Profession: Guest-Instructor, on loan from the South African National Defense Force


Nace arrived to the United States from South Africa after eight years with the South African Army. A recent innovation done in both the United Kingdom and South Africa involving members of the military, other law enforcement agencies, and intelligence types training ACME cadets and agents in those branches was noticed by HQ, and Nace was sent to San Francisco after eight months of that training program in South Africa.

Trained in both sniping and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) work, Nace's superiors not only expected him to teach the ACME cadets and Junior detectives, they also expected him to return a more well rounded soldier.

Sometimes we are so focused on the treasure we are seeking, that we fail to see the one right in front of us

Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.
