GIL THE ELF
Beck is an artist and huge nerd who is still trying to figure out what they want to be when they grow up. In the meantime, they are enjoying life in Chicago, drinking way too much coffee, and pretending that their cat is actually a person. They are probably watching either a children’s cartoon or a serial killer documentary right now.

SETH THE DRAGON
Wolf is that "son of a preacher man" that everyone seems to sing about. And like the song says, his voice will definitely reach you. The Brooklyn native Baritone is a graduate of the LaGuardia School for Music & Art (the "Fame" school) where he discovered his vocal talent while, of all things, cutting class. Said by one teacher, "you know, you could do overdubs for God". Charged by another music teacher, (Anna Ext of New York) "You have a powerful instrument. you MUST do something with it." He has since brought that charge to voice acting. He has been working as a Voice Actor for 15+ years. He is also a music producer and arranger. He spends his free time doing Dad stuff, contemplating the meaning of life, the universe and everything(42!), and providing audiobook narrations for Learning Ally, a nonprofit organization that provides educational services for the visually impaired, dyslexic, or otherwise disabled.

His favorite food is Jerk Chicken... just in case anyone wants to bring snacks.
EVIRA THE HUMAN
Celey grew up in Vermont playing hockey & tapping maple trees (really). She was supposed to be an engineer. "Money well spent." says her father. She writes & performs sketch comedy with BoogieManja, and performs standup all over New York. But her favorite gig has been opening for Michelle Wolf in Burlington, Vermont. In front of the camera, Celey is a lead in the webseries Extra/Ordinary (opposite Tiffany Mann from NBC’s Rise & Broadway’s Be More Chill), and sometimes appears in commercials for things like yogurt, and branded content for health insurance. She is the host of the weekly nostalgic movie review podcast Still Got It, where she and her guests rewatch and review a cherished movie from their childhood. She is an avid baker (eater) and knows more about Harry Potter than you do.

JIM THE ANNOUNCER / DELIVERY ELF
An advertising copywriter by trade, Ezra's limited acting instruction comes from a 6th grade theatre class where he wrote and performed his own play.
