Calvin Cranberry, born Calvin Riggs and also known as Calvin the Chosen, Calvin the Calvery, Calvin the Calm, Wizard With the Armor, the Red Wizard, the Red Mage, the Red Rookie, Sir Riggs, the White Wizard's Apprentice, the Socerer's Apprentice and Cranberry, is one of the supporting protagonist in LOTM: Witnesses of Sleepy Hollow - Harvest Saga. In Star Spangled Sub Saga, Calvin served as the secondary antagonist (with anti-heroic traits) turned supporting hero, being the titular arc protagonist villain in Calvin Cranberry Arc.
Once, Calvin was a rookie journalist from Sleepy Hollow, who became a survivor of the Feast of Apollo ten years ago, when he was only a 17-year-old young man. He was later apporached by Lord Helio in the guise of the White Wizard, who made Calvin his apprentice. After joining the Order of Flourish, Calvin became the caretaker of Zoe Corinth, who was revealed to be the husk of Hestia Hawthorn without her soul. Under Helio's instruction, Calvin entrusted Zoe to Ichabod Crane, the First Witness. However, Calvin was fooled by Lord Helio, thus start blaming the formation of Zodiac Demons after the First Feast on Moloch's forces. That drove Calvin into joining the preperation of the second Feast in an attempt to save the town, though he was unaware of Zoe's true identity.
Being one of the most trusted companion regarded by Selina Strawberry, Calvin is a talented young man who is curious and honest, never spilling secrets he had saw to those who should never know the secrets. He also had important roles in exposing the dark secrets of the Niveus Pharmaceuticals, ran by Orlando Orange, as well as the scandalous crimes behind Blaze Banana and Pedro Pineapple, but turned out that he did this for keeping the Order's safety.
What was more, while exposing many dark secrets of the Order members, Calvin kept the Croatoan Virus research of the Order (which is one of the darkest secrets of the Order) in secret, partly due to believing it could save humanity if it was used in a good hand. However, as he further delved into the White Wizard's darkest secrets, Calvin soon discovered the horrid truth behind the Zodiac Demons' formation, and he eventually turned against the Order and uncovered Lord Helio's traitorous and selfish nature, causing everyone to turn against Helio.
Calvin repersents many weakness inside human nature, most notably apathy out of selfishness. There are some people were trying to speak out against those who made them disgusted, but unfortunately, when the dark secrets were connected to their own goods, they'll shut up instead and pretended nothing ever happened. Calvin's attempt to reveal the dark secerts of Orlando, Blaze and Pedro to the public was simply because his master, the White Wizard (aka Lord Helio) considered those three useless and cut off the Order's tie with them due to their treachery, allowing Team Witness to do the work to eliminate them all. What was more, the most crucial reason that Calvin kept the reason of Croatoan Research Project and the Second Feast of Apollo's preperation was that he never found the secret dark and compromising at all, and he won't expose them to public since he considered it non-hazardous. However, as Calvin discovered the truth behind the First Feast's fatal consequence, which almost killed him, was awared by Lord Helio all along, Calvin immediately rebelled against him.
He is an OC character created by Officer Candy Apple.
Design and Appearance
As a HumanCalvin Cranberry is based on a minor character in the original Sleepy Hollow series, named Calvin Riggs. He was presented due to some wasted potention in his story in the original series, especially in the 16th episode of its second season, where the original Calvin made his appearance. He was initially showed to be a normal human, who had no relations to the Order of Flourish whatsoever.
After the new script for Harvest Saga was ready when the writer started to receive influence from both Kamen Rider Wizard and Tales of Berseria, Calvin's old character was revamped and it developed in two main phases.
In his first character development, Calvin was initially introduced as one of the supporting protagonist appeared first in Harvest Saga as a new mage rescued by the White Wizard from the failed ritual of the Feast of Apollo, where Calvin overcame his inner despair and earned magical power as soon as the White Wizard gave him a ring and made him a mage serving the Order of Flourish as its enforcer against the Zodiac Demons. This is inspired by Haruto Soma's origin story as well, since the majority of Harvest Saga was originally inspired by the story of Kamen Rider Wizard.However, the journalist identity of Calvin made the writer believed that there're a lot more in the character to explore. Thus, Officer Candy Apple expanded Calvin's role in his second phase of character development. He made Calvin appeared in The Order of Strawberry spinoff as already a secret agent (albeit not a magician) that served the Order. It made sense since all of the people are doing the Order's biddings, but some of them are awared of the fact.
In the latest draft, Calvin would be presented as a key player in Selina's project of wiping the town's dark crimes. He acts in a pivotal role in the expose of the infamous Sleepy Hollow Criminal Triumvirate, when Selina entrusted the evidence connected to Don Francis Fleur's murder of Mr. Bruno - Baccarat Blueberry's own father - and intended to make his crime empire fall. Calvin happily accepted this and was glad that Selina entrusted the important evidence to a journalist instead of police.Calvin, however, maintain some sort of distrust to Selina since rumors had it that Selina's parents, the renowned Steven Sarandon and his wife, were connected to mobs in the town. This distrust went further after the greedy and vengeful Orlando Orange (in his disguise, under the manipulation of the true mastermind, Phyllis Peach) exposed that Steven Sarandon was once working with Hickory and Fleur in the crime triumvirate and is the ringleader. Even so, Calvin later grudgingly believed that Selina would make things right and cleanse what her father did to many people, in spite of lamenting that the loss that Sarandon Senior caused would never be able to calculate.
Calvin is also a bittle rival with Blaze Banana, who was his superior in both the Order and the Daily Bugle. Blaze always hid the truth of supernatual things away from the public while claiming that it was good for the Order, and yet Calvin was worried that Blaze's actions would one day trigger a catastrophe. When it began, there would be no one to react in time, ending up that everyone would be perished.
However, in spite of delving into the truth, Calvin was still an agent for the Order of Flourish. He was unaware of the Stone of Wisdom, as well as the Feast of Apollo's truth, only knowing that Hestia Hawthorn was killed. He was also mistaken by the Order's soldier as an ordinary Shine, as Calvin never got in touch with Lord Helio, only knowing the Light Lord by his alias. Therefore, he was unawared of Zoe Corinth's true identity when the White Wizard gave it to him, believing Zoe was another survivor like him, but her situation of the Feast was way worse.
As a MageAfter becoming a Mage, Calvin soon earned the White Wizard's trust, as the latter overwatching his growth in magical skills as well as social skills for his ten-year-period of development. He also took care of Zoe Corinth with other high-ranking members from the Order, who all acknowledged him as their valuable member of their team. He also gained friendhsip from Carlos Coconut, who trained him in the combact skills.
However, there was two things which made Calvin confused - He never actually saw Zoe ever aged, and he felt that some close ones in the Order somehow turned more bitter, like Selina. He later thought it was the consequence of the Feast of Apollo. However, like most of the other members in the Order, Calvin had believed that Zodiac Demons led by Moloch's Twelve Nethers are responsible for that fatal night, and then he had to wait for seven years until Ichabod Crane's own revival from his grave.
At the end of Famine Arc, Calvin revealed himself and made Ichabod to take care of a sickly Zoe Corinth under the White Wizard's request, saying to him that the Witnesses should take care of Zoe as she had some possiblity to become a key to the town's darkest secrets, alongside some secrets that could benefit in their fight against the forces of Moloch.
Even knowing that the White Wizard was the one who helped him, however, Calvin began to trust the White Wizard less and less as the story progressed, especially he doubted that the White Wizard actually was plotting something immoral.
Tarot Motif - I. MagicianThe Magician, The Magus, or The Juggler (I) is the first trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks. It is used in game playing as well as in divination. In divination it is considered by some to succeed The Fool card, often numbered 0 (zero). He is the middle ground. The Magician Arcana represents concentration, resourcefulness, action, and creativity.
In the Magician's right hand is a wand raised toward heaven, the sky or the element æther, while his left hand is pointing to the earth. This iconographic gesture has multiple meanings, but is endemic to the Mysteries and symbolizes divine immanence, the ability of the magician to bridge the gap between heaven and earth. On the table in front of the Magician the symbols of the four Tarot suits signify the Classical elements of earth, air, fire and water. Beneath are roses and lilies, the flos campi and lilium convallium, changed into garden flowers, to show the culture of aspiration.
When the Magician appears in a spread, it points to the talents, capabilities and resources at the querent's disposal. Depending on the card's placement in relation to other cards, the message is to tap into one's full potential rather than holding back, especially when there is a need to transform something. There are choices and directions to take. Guidance can arrive through one's own intuition or in the form of someone who brings about change or transformation.
According to Arthur Edward Waite, this card signifies the divine motive in man. It is also the unity of the individual being on all planes, and in a very high sense it is thought. With further reference to the "sign of life", i.e. the infinity symbol and its connection with the number 8, it may be remembered that Christian Gnosticism speaks of rebirth in Christ as a change "unto the Ogdoad." The mystic number is termed Jerusalem above, the Land flowing with Milk and Honey, the Holy Spirit and the Land of the Lord. According to Martinism, 8 is the number of Christ.
Calvin (and Kelvin)Calvin is a masculine given name. It has been especially popular among American Protestants, who may be baptized as John Calvin to honor the religious leader, although in the judgement of the Oxford Dictionary of First Names, the modern given name "owes its popularity as much to the New York fashion designer Calvin Klein [b. 1942] as to the theologian". In the United States, the name had a short burst of popularity in the mid-to-late 1920s, due to president Calvin Coolidge (in office 1923–1929) and has remained of limited but more or less constant popularity since (fluctuating between ranks 130 and 231 during 1945–2016).
The name is also inspired by the famous scientist and physicist Lord Kelvin, full name William Thompson, 1st Baron Kelvin. At the University of Glasgow he did important work in the mathematical analysis of electricity and formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, and did much to unify the emerging discipline of physics in its modern form. He worked closely with mathematics professor Hugh Blackburn in his work. He also had a career as an electric telegraph engineer and inventor, which propelled him into the public eye and ensured his wealth, fame and honour. For his work on the transatlantic telegraph project he was knighted in 1866 by Queen Victoria, becoming Sir William Thomson. He had extensive maritime interests and was most noted for his work on the mariner's compass, which had previously been limited in reliability.
Absolute temperatures are stated in units of kelvin in his honour. While the existence of a lower limit to temperature (absolute zero) was known prior to his work, Lord Kelvin is widely known for determining its correct value as approximately −273.15 degree Celsius or −459.67 degree Fahrenheit.
Cranberry (wikipedia description)Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs or trailing vines in the subgenus Oxycoccus of the genus Vaccinium. In Britain, cranberry may refer to the native species Vaccinium oxycoccos, while in North America, cranberry may refer to Vaccinium macrocarpon. Vaccinium oxycoccos is cultivated in central and northern Europe, while Vaccinium macrocarpon is cultivated throughout the northern United States, Canada and Chile.
In some methods of classification, Oxycoccus is regarded as a genus in its own right. They can be found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler regions of the Northern Hemisphere.Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs or vines up to 2 meters (7 ft) long and 5 to 20 centimeters (2 to 8 in) in height; they have slender, wiry stems that are not thickly woody and have small evergreen leaves. The flowers are dark pink, with very distinct reflexed petals, leaving the style and stamens fully exposed and pointing forward. They are pollinated by bees. The fruit is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant; it is initially light green, turning red when ripe. It is edible, but with an acidic taste that usually overwhelms its sweetness.
Cranberries are a major commercial crop in certain American states and Canadian provinces (see cultivation and uses below). Most cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. Cranberry sauce is a traditional accompaniment to turkey at Christmas dinner in the United Kingdom, and at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners in the United States and Canada.
The name, cranberry, derives from the German, kraanbere (English translation, craneberry), first named as cranberry in English by the missionary John Eliot in 1647. Around 1694, German and Dutch colonists in New England used the word, cranberry, to represent the expanding flower, stem, calyx, and petals resembling the neck, head, and bill of a crane. The traditional English name for the plant more common in Europe, Vaccinium oxycoccos, fenberry, originated from plants with small red berries found growing in fen (marsh) lands of England.
Post-FeastAlthough being a magician who helps people coming out of despair, Calvin isn't always perfect or selfless. In fact, Calvin has his own dark side, which is similar to that of Selina Strawberry and Gregory Grape.
In the case of Calvin, he became more depressed ever since he had heard about one of his colleagues died during the process of La Gloton's investigation, and he fully turned cynical after Macey Irving, the daughter of Frank Irving, was almost ran down by a car and was disabled for the rest of her life. Since Calvin's parents died in a car accident, he was greatly traumatized by what happened on Macey, so he decided to leave the case alone and be his news reporter and secretly, a magician who brings hope, nothing more.After the divorce between Frank and Cynthia Irving, Calvin believed that fully delved into the case would resulted in more people around him getting hurt, so he decided to fully fight against Zodiac Demons instead of delving into La Gloton cases.
Now, much to the pain of Marshall Mango and Zoe Corinth, they could only watch as Calvin start throwing tantrum upon the investigation of the case while always getting himself drunk. Calvin was convinced that the case was accursed, and yet he refused to believe it was connected to demons, believing the killer is just an ordinary human, but the full case was accursed that no one would ever escape from it as long as they began their investigation - children included. The reason Calvin tried to fight is because of other citizens who would be driven to despair by Zodiac Demons, but he ignored the cases of La Gloton or the murder resembling the killer's MO, since he lost faith on himself. He could only devote himself to the Order of Flourish so that he could find some peace inside him.

- "I am your final hope!"
- "Oh, my goodness, don't you think it's a disgrace for my duty as a reporter and writer? There's nothing confirmed about that recent patient in Tarrytown who killed people and sanguinated them!"
- "The townspeople in Sleepy Hollow often prefers quiet life, and it'll be utterly insane as well as definitely disastrous when even a little spark of difference occurred in their own regular life. Ah, days aren't so good to be such a journalist in such a town... but what do you think I've gonna do? The Horseman is gone even before we step in."
- "Well, see ya later! Oh, for God's sake, I hate to say this but I'll prefer to see those bad, indecent, deceitful and corrupt executives from Tarrytown - especially that goddamn director, to be ripped apart by La Gloton one by one! Especially that Dr. Maynard! He made Jenny Mills into the confinement and failed to keep an eye on her! I believe he would be the one who would gave the idea to weasel himself out of punishment..."
Quotes about Calvin
Kallen KōzukiKallen Kōzuki (紅月カレン Kōzuki Karen) is one of the main characters featured in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. She is officially known as Kallen Stadtfeld (カレン・シュタットフェルト Karen Shutattoferuto), and goes by this name at school, but prefers her mother's maiden Japanese name during her revolutionary (now military) activities.
Kallen is a strong-willed, determined, loyal and brave individual who also can be quite short-tempered, forceful and somewhat impulsive. Despite her tough attitude, Kallen is actually quite sensitive, compassive and truly gentle, however after the death of her brother she doesn't show this side much any more. Her brother's death has also affected her relationship with her parents, though over time Kallen begins to renew her relationship with her mother, and like her brother, she becomes one of Kallen's reasons to liberate Japan. Her relationship with her father, both before and after Britannia took over Japan, is never revealed, though she has referred to him as "dad" on one occasion, implying that their relationship is (or at least was) probably positive.
While being both Japanese and Britannian, Kallen had the ability to live a normal life. However, she refused to fully accept her Britannian side as it would mean abandoning her Japanese friends, people, and self; thus making her one of the few selfless characters in all the series. On multiple occasions at the beginning of the series, she had claimed that she hates Britannians, though that was clearly an exaggeration as Kallen has been seen caring about Britannian civilians on multiple occasions, a prime example being her visible concern for the Student Council during the Lake Kawaguchi incident. Her character arc can be summarized as thus: she transforms from an emotional, somewhat prejudice, untrusting girl in a tawdry rebellion into a confident, capable fighter with a much stronger sense of justice and morality, willing to put aside her feelings and interests to protect those she loves and cares about.
At Ashford Academy, Kallen was forced to hide her identity in order to avoid suspicion, which caused her to change her hairstyle and her true personality. Whereas normally Kallen is powerful, confident, willful, and Japanese-favoring, at school she was a milquetoast, withdrawn ill girl who didn't speak up very much (the ill part was to hide her recreational activities as a Black Knight). In spite of this, she was welcomed fondly into the Student Council, which becomes a significant factor in her character development. However, when she felt under suspicion, Kallen often readied the knife that she conceals in a small pink pouch, showing what she would do to keep her identity secret. After finally changing Britannia's political system and gaining liberty for Japan due to Zero and his closest allies, Kallen begins to show her true feisty nature as her school while still being a member of the Black Knights.
Android 18Android 18 (人造人間１８号 Jinzōningen Jū Hachi-Gō, lit. "Artificial Human No. 18"), Lazuli (ラズリ Razuri) when she was an ordinary human, is a major character in Dragon Ball franchise. She is the twin sister of Android 17 and Dr. Gero's eighteenth android creation, designed to serve Gero's vendetta against Goku. While her interests do not initially deviate from this expectation, her curiosity to activate Android 16, in spite of Gero's orders not to do so, leads Android 17 to take it upon himself to murder Gero. Eventually, Android 18 becomes a member of the Z Fighters, as well as the wife of Krillin and the mother of their daughter Marron.
Like her brother, Android 18 usually displays a cool and confident character, especially in battle, although her sarcastic humor is the most striking trait of her personality. This is demonstrated when Goku takes notice of her assembly with the Z Fighters at the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament, leading to the retort "Look, he noticed. How cute." (in Japanese she says "Took you a while idiot!"). Shortly after this, she is asked by the World Tournament Announcer if her real name is legitimately "No. 18", to which she responds "My father was pretty dull" (in Japanese, she replies "That it doesn't matter" before tossing the number at the World Tournament Announcer).
Although she isn't characterized for this, 18 can be very curious if she is really interested in something, to the point of activating her comrade Android 16, and wondering what present she will give to her husband Krillin during a dispute of a wish with the others using the Dragon Balls. She often expresses herself in her cool and downplayed manner well into her marriage with Krillin, often smiling in a somewhat subdued fashion that conveys her very laid back personality, in Super, however, she is often seen smiling. However, 18's sense of humor is not always tactful, as she jokingly expressed to Future Trunks that she wanted reimbursement for him killing her alternate universe counterpart, much to Future Trunks' displeasure. This is a rare instance where Android 18's humor was anything but tactful, as per her usual timing. This failure is likely due to Android 18 being unaware how murderous her counterpart was and how much Future Trunks had suffered because of it, as she likely would have more sensitive had she known the full extent of the destruction and suffering caused by her and her brother's counterparts. She is also shown to be rather prideful, though not to the same extent as her brother had been during the Imperfect Cell Saga.
By the time of Dragon Ball Super, Android 18 is seems to have grown kinder and compassionate, often seen smiling and is closer to Krillin and Marron compared to last time, where she is shown always folding her arms and looking withdrawn from the characters (like Vegeta and Piccolo, with the former before being accustomed to earthly society), only smiling when she sees her daughter and participating in some activities with the characters, like in the God of Destruction Beerus Saga, she participates in the bingo tournament. When she encounters Future Trunks after so many years, she is shown to be more kind and friendly to him than the last time they met, giving him a fist and joking about her future self's death. Android 18's close relationship with Krillin had led her to want to give a present for him, which she wanted to use the Dragon Balls to wish for a present, when Bulma told #18 that having her and Marron is better than having any present, she was struck with flattery, causing her face to blush, implying that she really loves her husband, and even cheers for him during Universe 6 and Universe 7's baseball match.
Eren YeagarEren Yeager is the main protagonist of the Attack on Titan series. He is a member of the Survey Corps, the current inheritor of the Attack Titan and later revealed to be the Founding Titan. Recently, he has become the current inheritor of the War Hammer Titan. He serves as Reiner Braun's archenemy and is the half-brother of Zeke Yeager.
While initially presented as a heroic protagonist, Eren gradually becomes more of an antagonistic character, as he commits villainous acts. Most notably is the Marley Arc, where he serves as the main antagonist. From the Marleyan perspective, he is a terrorist who wishes to declare war on them, serving as a threat since he can control the Wall Titans without being bound by King Fritz' vow of pacifism.
Eren is a young man that can be described as being courageous and brave. He is dedicated to both his friends, family and people and very determined to achieve his goals of freeing the world from the Walls. Even as a child, he was always eager of wanting to join the Survey Corps, for the sake of escaping the Walls and exploring the outside world.
Because of his strong dedication, however, this can often lead to his arrogance which ultimately can lead to him making reckless mistakes and decisions that puts him and his friends in great danger. He also tends to have a short temper and can often lash out in anger out of nowhere. His anger can also lead to sadistic levels, as shown when all he wanted to do Reiner and Bertolt was torture and kill them in the most sufferable ways as possible, after learning they were the Armored and Colossal Titans.
When Eren learns the truth about the world and the Titans, he changes quite drastically. His hatred for the Titans has disappeared and has now taken on a calm and more serious approach. He has fully acknowledged Marley as the true enemy and will go out of his way to stop them, even if it means going out of his way to commit horrid acts such as killing innocent bystanders and causing collateral damage.
Due to his change of personality, Eren has been able to express his relationship with even his enemies. Most notably is Reiner Braun who, despite committing heinous actions that Eren despises him for, was able to relate with him as both him and Reiner are essentially trying to achieve the same goal.
He is voiced by Yūki Kaji in the Japanese dub of the anime, and Bryce Papenbrook in the English dub.
Sherlock HolmesSherlock Holmes (/ˈʃɜːrlɒk ˈhoʊmz/) is a fictional private detective created by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Referring to himself as a "consulting detective" in the stories, Holmes is known for his proficiency with observation, forensic science, and logical reasoning that borders on the fantastic, which he employs when investigating cases for a wide variety of clients, including Scotland Yard.
First appearing in print in 1887 (in A Study in Scarlet), the character's popularity became widespread with the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine, beginning with "A Scandal in Bohemia" in 1891; additional tales appeared from then until 1927, eventually totaling four novels and 56 short stories. All but one are set in the Victorian or Edwardian eras, between about 1880 and 1914. Most are narrated by the character of Holmes's friend and biographer Dr. Watson, who usually accompanies Holmes during his investigations and often shares quarters with him at the address of 221B Baker Street, London, where many of the stories begin.
Though not the first fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes is arguably the best known, with Guinness World Records listing him as the "most portrayed movie character" in history. Holmes's popularity and fame are such that many have believed him to be not a fictional character but a real individual; numerous literary and fan societies have been founded that pretend to operate on this principle. Widely considered a British cultural icon, the character and stories have had a profound and lasting effect on mystery writing and popular culture as a whole, with the original tales as well as thousands written by authors other than Conan Doyle being adapted into stage and radio plays, television, films, video games, and other media for over one hundred years.
Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)Sherlock Holmes (born William Sherlock Scott Holmes) is the world's only consulting detective, a profession he created for himself. He is the protagonist of BBC Series Sherlock based on the fictional detective in Arthur Conan Doyle's books. He is based in London and often consulted by Greg Lestrade of New Scotland Yard, usually taking his best friend and former flatmate, John Watson, on cases. He has a keen interest in unusual or bizarre crimes, without which he rapidly becomes bored, relying on nicotine to keep his brain active, although in the past he has dabbled in illegal drugs such as heroin for entertainment.
Sherlock is a thinker and an observer; his incredible ability to notice and draw deductions from seemingly trivial details is his main tool for solving crimes he investigates. He also often utilises his "mind palace", a tool for remembering the smallest of details and organising his memories in a visual way. However, his unusual and somewhat anti-social personality has led to many in the official police force distrusting and disliking him.
Sherlock claims on more than one occasion to be a "high-functioning sociopath". However, according to Jim Moriarty, as well as Sherlock's own actions and displays of emotion and empathy, this may not be true. Sherlock does not seem to exhibit any of the symptoms of an anti-social personality disorder. John jokes once, in order to explain Sherlock's behaviour, that he might suffer from Asperger's Syndrome, a disorder on the autism spectrum, though this has never been confirmed.
Frodo BagginsFrodo Baggins, son of Drogo Baggins, was a Hobbit of the Shire during the Third Age. He is the main protagonist in Lord of Rings trilogy. He was, and still is, Tolkien's most renowned character for his leading role in the Quest of the Ring, in which he bore the One Ring to Mount Doom, where it was destroyed. He was a Ring-bearer, best friend to his gardener, Samwise Gamgee, and one of the three Hobbits who sailed from Middle-earth to the Uttermost West at the end of the Third Age.
Frodo, as described by Gandalf, was "taller than some and fairer than most, (with) a cleft in his chin: perky chap with a bright eye." (The Fellowship of the Ring, Chapter 10, "Strider") He was a shy, young hobbit with thick, curly brown hair like most other hobbits, and had lighter-than-usual skin due to his Fallohide ancestry through his Brandybuck mother. He could be described as fairly good looking for a hobbit. Frodo is described as appearing thirty-three, even when he is fifty, due to the influence of the Ring. Bilbo and Frodo shared a common birthday on September 22, but Bilbo was 78 years Frodo's senior. At the opening of The Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo and Bilbo were celebrating their thirty-third and eleventy-first (111th) birthdays, respectively.
Frodo, like Bilbo, was considered by many others in Hobbiton to be a little odd. His curiosity of the outside world, fascination with Elves and faraway places (like those to which Bilbo travelled in The Hobbit) did not fit the general content personality of most Hobbits. This curiosity was also attributed to his Took ancestry. He was very kind and compassionate, pitying Gollum and allowing him to guide him and Sam to Mordor despite Sam's distrust of the creature. This act of kindness later proved to be a factor in the quest's success in destroying the Ring. The influence of the Ring and the wound by the Morgul-Blade seems combined to have given him the ability to see into the spirit world, for instance he sees faraway events in his dreams on several occasions. He also can see the ring of power worn by Galadriel and he seems to be able to sense danger.

In the episode "I Am Anne Frank (Part 2)", Dr. Thredson helps Lana escape Briarcliff and holds her captive after revealing himself to be "Bloody Face". He explains that he intends to keep her alive to be the mother he never had as a child and later rapes her. Lana escapes Thredson's lair, only to end up back at the asylum after a car accident. Thredson finds her there, now intent on killing her, but Kit is able to knock him out. Lana wishes to kill him, but Kit needs him to stay alive in order to prove that he is not the killer. Lana learns that she is pregnant from the rape and uses this to get Thredson to confess to being the serial killer, while Kit secretly records him. She attempts to abort the baby, but is unsuccessful. She is able to take the tape and escapes the asylum with the help of the Mother Superior, from the urging of Sister Jude. She promises Jude she will someday return the favor by getting Jude released and shutting down the asylum. Lana waits with a gun at Thredson's house, telling him she has turned the tape over to the police, before personally killing him. She later gives birth to the baby and puts him up for adoption.
In 1968, she publishes a book about Thredson and her experiences in the asylum, Maniac: One Woman's Story of Survival, which thrusts her into the spotlight and tops The New York Times bestseller list. Kit, who has since been freed from the asylum after Thredson's conviction and death, reminds her of the promise made to Jude that she would get the asylum shut down. Lana initially refuses to help, but uses her status a well known journalist to shut down the asylum in 1971 with a documentary called Briarcliff Exposed. In 2013, Lana is 75 years old and publicly open about her sexuality, and has a new girlfriend. She takes part in an interview, retelling her experiences, and reveals that she had lied about her son dying during birth and that he is still alive.
After the interview, Lana is confronted by her murderous son Johnny, whom she knew was posed a member of the TV crew and became the modern-day "Bloody Face". Johnny attempts to kill Lana, in revenge for her attempting to abort him, abandoning him at birth and for not loving his father, whom Johnny idolizes. She ultimately convinces him that he is not like his murderous father and then uses his own gun to kill him, blaming herself for her son's murders.
She returns in the sixth season, Roanoke, coming out of retirement in 2016 to interview Lee Harris about her experiences at the Roanoke house. Lee uses Lana's past killing to try and justify her own murders but the conversation is interrupted by Lot Polk who knocks Lana unconscious while attempting to kill Lee for her role in his family's deaths. After a hiatus to recover from her injuries, Lana admits in an interview that she felt a connection with Lee due to their similar determination in their respective plights.
In Cult, Lana becomes aware of Ally Mayfair-Richards, a woman from Michigan with details on how she managed to escape a sadistic clown cult run by Kai Anderson, a local councilman. She requests an interview with Ally, but is refused the opportunity.

Investigative reporter Vicki Vale got her start at the Gotham City Gazette, where she quickly rose to fame for her unwavering commitment to rooting out the ugly truths behind Gotham's corruption and poverty. Focusing more and more on Batman's feats, Vicki turned her attention to the opening of Arkham City.
She'd risk life and limb to portray the danger the prison city posed to the public, perhaps overly confident that Batman would be there to catch her when she fell.
