Key Characters

The following is a list of some of the key characters in Highton Heroes. At the moment, this list only contains some of the key players from the first season, but will expand as I continue to write more.

Ben Tully

Ben is nearly thirty with curly brown hair. While a scientist type, he is pretty well toned and combat trained. Ben is the recently elected Mayor of Highton after his Father, Gerald Tully, passed away. He grew up in his Father’s shadow with expectations to follow in his footsteps, his mother leaving Highton at a young age. When he met his wife Lucy at university, he abandoned his predetermined path to instead fulfill his own science and technology interests. When his Father fell terminally ill, Ben made amends and ran for Mayor of Highton out of respect. He did not expect to win and did not anticipate the responsibility and challenges that would be thrown his way when he did.

Lucy Tully

Lucy is in her late twenties. She is a little below average height with shortish black hair, usually in a ponytail. She acts stern but has a kind heart. Lucy was born in the Delvin faction to a family that never cared for her. Her impressive grades helped her leap into a new life away from her family at Delvin’s best training facility. Here she aced everything and eventually became a top Delvin agent. After hearing of Highton, she fled Delvin in the hopes of achieving something more. She went through all the necessary training to become a citizen. Delvin branded her a traitor for leaving and Highton citizens shunned her due to her origins. Life was lonely and difficult until she met Ben Tully, whom she later married. She now serves as Highton’s Assistant Mayor.

Ace Benning

Ace is in his mid-40s. He is a strong and burly man with military cut blonde hair. He currently serves as Highton’s Supreme Commander. Ace was born to a military centric family. Ace fell in love with military life as soon as he entered junior training. His parents did all they could to help him along his path. After completing secondary studies, he was accepted into a prestigious Highton training program that fast-tracked him to becoming a Shock Trooper. Over time he became bored and started trying out new combat roles. Eventually his experience earned him a Commander role. When his mentor and at-the-time Supreme Commander died, Ace was a natural choice to take over.

President Andrew Harvey

Harvey is in his early 50s. He is a tall and authoritative man with gingery brown hair, some grey poking through. Despite being born to a wealthy family, he was cast out at a young age. He went on to become a powerful self-made man who carefully navigated his way through politics to become Earth’s President (by making friends in influential places). Given Gerald Tully’s smooth running of Highton, Harvey isn’t ready for a less informed turbulent run by his son, Ben.

Corporal Rover

Rover is a genetically modified German Shepard who has enhanced intelligence. He always wears a white metal helmet to hide his implant scar. Almost human in nature, he can speak English with his booming voice and solve complex problems. Rover is 3 years old and currently serves as Lead Corporal of the Dog Soldier Division (DSD). He wears a special jetpack that also contains Energy Blasters, allowing him to be mobile and efficient in combat.

The Crazy Guy

The Crazy Guy has a permanently painted red and white splotchy face. His right hand is red and his left hand is white. He wears a cream suit complete with cream panama hat. He holds an unfounded desire for mayhem and destruction. The Crazy Guy is basically what his name suggests – insane. His mood is bipolar, and his actions are unpredictable. He has no issues causing harm to others and will likely laugh while doing so. Highton have no idea what his ultimate goal and intentions are. Despite all this, he is very intelligent and cunning. Before becoming The Crazy Guy, he was a former Highton Trooper which has given him intimate knowledge of Highton and its inner workings.


Goliath is The Crazy Guy’s top henchman. After being sprayed with a special white paint, which burnt off his hair and permanently dyed his face, he was transformed into a mindless husk who takes any orders given to him by The Crazy Guy. Goliath has a hulking, muscly stature and a specially augmented arm that gives him super strength (with the one arm).
