Forest Hill is a slice-of-life comic revolving around the daily lives of a few elementary age kids and their parents, and all the (mis-)adventures they get into as they go about their daily lives.

The setting is approximate to the Appalachian Mountain chain (The Apals) around what we would call the mid-1990’s.


Tanya Locket

Age: 9

When it comes to playing rough with the boys, she can hold her own, though she sometimes bites off more than she can chew. She’s daddy’s little girl, and usually gets what she wants. She’s a tomboy at heart, whether her father wants to acknowledge it or not.

Kaleb Veloux

Age: 9

A natural leader in the making, Kaleb often has to keep his friends in check, but will also stick up for them when needed.

Maricio “Munch” Oreja

Age: 9

The elder son of a successful business-cat, he’s got all of the latest toys. He tends to watch a lot of television, read comics, and play video games, which doesn’t help his over-active imagination.

Paz Oreja

Age: 7

Unlike his brother Munch, Paz is more down-to-earth. He’s not really into video games and music, turning his energy to more creative and spiritual outlets.

Benni Subak

Age: 11

Benni’s a bully, there’s no way around that, but is there more to him?

Tali’s what you’d call the ‘life of the party’. She’s very sociable, and loves making new friends.





Colin Locket

Beetrice “Flora” Veloux

Age: 29

Flora is a rather conservative lady. Well, at least she wants to be. In order to balance her school work with raising Kaleb, she’s been working various temp jobs in order to make ends meet. She is very religious, and is more than willing to help others in need, even though she knows that she can’t really afford to do so.

Karmen Defay

Age: 40

Karmen may be short in stature, but she makes up for it attitude. Despite being an agent of the county department of family services, she’s seen a lot of things that might make others turn away, but that doesn’t stop her from smiling.
