WebCanids is a gag-a-day comic featuring foxes, wolves, coyotes, dogs, and other canids. The comic does not feature one continuous story, but rather an assortment of smaller, skit-like adventures and jokes.
There are 11 recurring characters in WebCanids comics, as well as occasional extra characters such as humans, maned wolves, and chickens.
Red (M) is a red fox (Vulpes vulpes) from the area around Bournmouth in the United Kingdom. He is the mascot of WebCanids, and appears most frequently in comics. He has a superhero alter-ego known as SuperFox!
Red has always lived in between the city and the countryside of New Forest National Park. He knows the best of both the human world and the wild world, and is able to adapt to both easily. Sometimes, however, he visits his friend Stuart the grey wolf in the USA, and it is suspected that he uses his SuperFox powers to do this.
SuperFox is the superhero alter-ego of Red. He protects Bournemouth and the surrounding areas from all manner of wasted food!
Red acquired his newfound flying ability during a windy day in New Forest National Park (see the SuperFox Origins trilogy), and thanks to his useful red cape, he can fly high above the ground and spot stray food from miles away!
Finn (M) is a fennec fox (Vulpes zerda) from the Tassili n'Ajjer National Park area in Algeria just to the south of the Issaouane Erg (sand sea). He has the most unusual adventures of any of the WebCanids cast!
Finn had a hard early life, and due to a series of unfortunate events he eventually found himself alone until he was taken in by Rupert as an adoptive younger brother.
Rupert (M) is a Rüppell's Desert Fox (Vulpes rueppellii) from southern Algeria. He and his adopted little brother Finn are constantly having adventures together while on the lookout for strawberries!
Rupert lived a rather normal life until he found Finn in a very sorry state and helped bring him back to health and happiness. He and his brother have an unbreakable bond, despite being different fox species.
Arli (F) is an arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) from Canada's Banks Island. She is the only member of the WebCanids cast that can speak, well, normally. She prefers being alone with her thoughts, but sometimes she can be found with Frost.
Arli once made an incredible and arduous journey from Mellville Island on an iceberg. After being stranded on the ice for more than a week, she barely had the strength to swim to the shore of Banks Island, where Frost helped nurse her back to health.
Frost (M) is Arli's best friend and an arctic fox native to Canada's Banks Island. He can sometimes be found with Arli, although he is more often off on his own looking for lemmings.
Frost once helped Arli after she survived a tough ordeal on an iceberg.
Dr. Kit (F) is WebCanid's resident veterinarian. A fox kit herself, her qualifications as a true medical professional are a bit... questionable. Her usual prescription? More food.
Dr. Kit heavily promotes her veterinary office by advertising throughout other WebCanids comics.
Stuart (M) is a grey wolf (Canis lupus) from the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park in the United States. He is good friends with Red, and they frequently try to teach each other different fox and wolf tricks!
Stuart has always lived a relatively normal life in Yellowstone, but since becoming frens with Red he has picked up a few new hobbies, some of which are a little on the strange side...
Harold (M) is a coyote (Canis latrans) from the Denver, Colorado area in the United States. He doesn't have the best luck, and he often gets quite discouraged. The mistakes he makes sometimes certainly don't help, either...
Harold doesn't really interact with other canids. He wishes he could, but he doesn't feel like he would fit in.
Webster (M) is a golden retriever (dog) from Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. He isn't the smartest, but he is very lovable!
Webster has always lived with humans, and all of his knowledge of life is directly related to them. Sometimes this leads to problems for him.
Sheebie (F) is a shiba inu (dog) from Seattle, Washington, United States. She is your typical self-sufficient shiba, but she does keep some humans around for occasional entertainment purposes.
