Because the Everclear Night's setting and characters are based on the Paper Mario series of video games, most characters' species are taken directly from Mario canon. The only exception to this rule seems to be Greaser, whose species is based on the avatar of BigBurkhart on the MSPAforums . Though characters are created both by gestaltScribbler and by the story's readers (through Soul-Smithing ), all other species are found in Mario games. This page is a record of species that have appeared in Everclear Night canon. Fan-characters can join the list when they find their way into the story.
