The Alphabet: Gardener Dome, Mars “Z”
Z is for: Zenobia N’Golo
Zenobia is an artist who specializes in depicting the neo-rural lifestyle of Gardener Dome. Although she primarily paints using acrylics, she has been known to sculpt in a variety of media. Her work can be seen all over the Dome and around Mars.
She and her husband, Mick, live in a large cottage on Hayride Street, which they share with their two children, their cat, T’Challa, and their dog, Bruce. They often host dinner parties with food prepared by Mick, since Zenobia is an admitted danger in the kitchen.
Zenobia was born in the East Central Sector of United Africa, but her family moved to Mars when she was 5. She is 5′ 7” tall and often wears bright green overalls.
…EWWWWW, demon farts!

The Alphabet: Gardener Dome, Mars “X”
X is for: Xakry
70 years ago, when scientists started developing Smart Animals and New Humans and other genetic creations, they accidentally created a few Mutants. Yes, just like in the comics. Humans with strange powers.
Xakry is one of those Mutants. Despite being 70 years old, he looks about 12. He dresses like any kid you might meet on Mars, but his teeth are too wide and his eyes are a swirl of colors and he sometimes flies and he can create very realistic illusions.
By interplanetary law, Xakry can go wherever he wants except for Class 3 and above Restricted Areas. He has plenty of money from a government grant, but he never spends much. He always seems to be seeing things nobody else can.
Xakry has lived in Gardener Dome for 9 years. He can often be found helping folks out with various chores.
…co-starring her wacky pal, Emma Goosemeyer
I am SO sorry for not keeping this blog updated as often as I should. Life has been throwing me curves for quite a while and this has impacted damn near everything I do. I’ll try to be more regular on here.
BIG SHOUTOUT TO MY NEWEST PATREON BACKERS, MARIAN WALDMAN AND DAVID MEDINNUS! Y’all are great!

The Alphabet: Gardener Dome, Mars “W”
W is for: Winikon Jaskerath
Wini is one of the few New Breed Humans on Mars. Created partly in a laboratory and partly in a human womb, Wini looks for all the world like an elf from Lord of the Rings. He stands 6 feet tall, is slender, you muscular and is probably the prettiest man you’ll ever meet. And yes, he has pointy ears.
As a certified Animal Translator, Wini, travels from farm to farm chatting with the livestock to make sure everything if okay and see if they have any complaints. The animals love him and so do the farmers.
In his spare time, Wini grows a variety of flowers and enjoys vegetarian cooking. He is unmarried, but does have a cat named Rodney and a dog named Periwinkle.
