Beret guy, as seen in 1117: My Sky
|First appearance||167: Nihilism|
Beret Guy is an optimist, and sometimes a naïve one (although he is rarely a victim in the strip). He enjoys philosophizing, often taking the role of the existentialist. He has a very surreal side to him, often thinking about or being involved in bizarre situations. He is also fascinated with bakeries, scones in particular.
Beret Guy appears to have a steady job as a bartender, shown in the comics 328: Eggs, 474: Turn-On, and 712: Single Ladies. However, in later comics, he apparently quit his job to become a "business professional", according to 1032: Networking. He also, apparently, makes a load of money off of doing this, but has no reasons other than the fact that he is "a business grown-up who makes business profits". He appears again, now with his own "real building he found" in 1293: Job Interview.
Beret Guy also seems to be a miracle maker, causing supernatural acts in 1099: Tuesdays, where he grows "endless wings" and in the aforementioned 1293: Job Interview, where he seems to be pouring soup from an electrical socket, as well as in 1486: Vacuum, where he misinterprets quantum physics and manages to get unlimited power from a vacuum cleaner. However, in all three of these, Beret Guy seems to not have any doubt that the events are normal; in fact, he just seems to accept them as they are without question. He also seems to be quite oblivious to pain, especially about foreign objects sticking into his head.
