A web-cartoon consisting of four minute short episodes about ROE, the only angleless, mustacheless, and limbless shape, shrugs off his bureaucratic responsibilities of serving gas at The Huffing Post and dedicates his centrifugal force to annoying and grandstanding his governmental overlords, the Triangles, much to the consternation of his supervisor, KLACK, a hapless square that loves rules and paperwork.
Roe hates society and rolls to prove he’s more than what the triangles draw him as. He dreams of one day being a dance champion despite his lack of legs and shrugs off paperwork as much as possible (partly because of his inability to handle a pen). He speaks in an overly dramatic deep voice that he thinks makes him sound intimidating. The only shape he truly cares about is Klack, but he refuses to admit it.
Klack loves paperwork. He could have risen high in the ranks of the KoI (Knights of the Interior), but realizing, he could do double the paperwork by volunteering to supervise a limbless shape like Roe, he jumped at the chance much to the pity of his peers. Slowly, Klack has come to appreciate and empathize with Roe despite Roe’s many attempts to derail the great bureaucracy. He’s also a fine dancer.
Lex hates bureaucracy because its an obstruction to the one thing he loves more than himself and that’s absolute power. As government employee #2, he’s next in the line of rightness should King Right Triangle ever become indisposed. Lex’s duties include overseeing royal invitations, quorum calls, drafting edicts to be argued by other government employees, but most important, he is King Right Triangle’s personal assistant. Lex has a bit of a huffing problem, which is why he spends so much time at The Huffing Post and hates the disorder Roe’s existence causes.
Obie is the coolest shape ever constructed, at least in her own mind. To the rest of the shapes, she is seen as incredibly awkward and inordinately large. As the daughter of King Right Triangle, Obie is forbidden to touch paperwork, in fact, she’s not allowed to do anything. For this reason, she enjoys hanging around The Huffing Post and thinks Klack is the most ideal shape due to his love for society and also, he’s the only one that treats her normal, while Roe hates her.
Once a great government employee, he grew sick of the bureaucracy of Los Angles and longed for a simpler life… the life of a drug addict. Now he lives in the dumpster behind The Huffing Post. Years of drug use have warped S’Cally’s angles/sides and turned him into a scalene triangle. S’Cally appreciates Klack for doing his paperwork for him and likes Roe’s incongruousness. He vaguely remembers having a son, but doesn’t know what happened to him.
Trappy delivers the morning edicts from the Triangle Palace and picks up paperwork to be deposited at the library. Trappy is proud of his four points and thanks the almighty line segment for not cursing him to be an aberration like Roe. He grumbles quite a bit and feels underappreciated as he believes he’s essential to Los Angles’ success as a bureaucracy.
Always right and has been since his creation, which makes him incredibly bored. He knows that Lex wants his position, but he doesn’t care and is drawing more and more away from politics. For this reason, he tries to push his daughter away from the rules and regulations set forth by his government, but she refuses. He spends most of his time trying and practicing being wrong, but he’s unable to ‘till he’s able to meet a shape so supremely wrong, Roe.
The sultan of slick. He's so fresh that 98 degrees doesn't need words, just his slick beat boxing. It's not known what job 98 degrees holds in the triangle government or what he does when he's not following Lex around, but whatever it is, it's cool.
“Klack and Roe” takes place in the fictional town of Los Angles. A city that runs on and worships its bureaucracy. A strict ideology that value is placed on position and the number of angles a shape has. Less is more unless you have none! The triangles, the government employees, live and work in the TRIANGLE PALACE atop the hill that overlooks the city. The triangle palace is rainbow colored because it represents the triangles universality.
Where the triangles toil and meticulously craft the edicts and paperwork, which all other shapes must follow. The only shapes allowed in the palace are triangles and quadrilaterals. In the center, King Right Triangle sits above watching and monitoring the proceedings... He may be asleep, but since he so far up... no one knows for sure.
