Chronicles of a Trickster is a 40-story series that details into the adventures and life of the musclebound trickster goddess Launa Viander. This came around high interest around the development of another soon-to-be series Battle of the Big Buff Busty Black Cats and Blackboobs Begins.
Since the beginning of the series around early august, Launa has become a very interesting character to work with since her inception back in 2003. Since the, the thought of creating a special short series of stories about the main character came in around early 2009 with Launa and her main exploits. Along with her friends/roommates Azrelle and Sabrina, those adventures become more intense and complex.
The format of the series is often described the most as chapters but the official term for it is more in that with "episodes". Each jumping into a individual story to a mini-arc that helps develop the character more. Most of the episodes are written by Xenny Diemes with editing by Alexander "Muddy" Mudrovich and Rinji Pantera both of which are integrating their universes in along with this one.
- Launa Viander/Jennifer Aslan - The main protagonist of the story. She was once a 23 year-old teenage girl from the 11th century who was a total troublemaker and trickster until she was cursed by a witch half-way. Centuries of study and using the magic made her more of a trickster goddess the world knows her to be.
- Sabrina Breckenridge - Formally a waitress from a Oregon roadside restaurant, she was attacked and bitten by a giant werewolf which causes her to become one herself. She later came around to defeating her assailant and is free to use her abilities on her own. She is a "Superwere", a generation of werewolves that are bigger, stronger and much faster than average ones.
- Lady "Azzy" Azrealle - A member of the highly influential and powerful Xisalelle Clan and a student from the Arcadia School of High Sorcery Azrelle or "Azzy" to Sabrina and Launa developed a gateway to another world as her final project. However a deviant rival sabotages her project and it sucks her into the target world and right into Launa's apartment complex.
- Frederick Deolan - A Local resident from the city who met Launa in an auction that Coyote sets up to buy time for a plan but after a harsh misunderstanding, Frederick was able to handle taking on Coyote and defeating him before he can succeed.
- Roland "Rolo" Hannsen - Owner of a local gym with the heaviest weights in the world and Launa's current boyfriend in the present.
- Rinji Pantera - A panther ninja warrior who is immortal like Launa. He possesses the power of fire and the spirit of a phoenix. He meets Launa in the early 1800s, having learned of her exploits over the years. He has a strong admiration and deep-seeded love for the Trickster Goddess and desires more than anything to prove that he can best her in combat. He would meet her again a handful of times through the years, longing to one day defeat the legendary Trickster Goddess and find his way to her heart. With time on his side, Rinji knows that his time will eventually come...and it will be a showdown on a planetary scale.
- Mr. UP - UP or "Undead Pete" A hopelessly loyal servant of Launa she resurrected from a cemetery years ago who will be vital in the end of the storyline.
- Kiara - A traveler from the future who has to make sure that everything in the past is changed but with little knowledge at the time of her leaving makes it hard for her to pinpoint the moment in time in the present. She is bigger, stronger and tougher than Launa but holds a secret that Launa hopes she doesn't know.
- Sayber - Formerly a young woman from ancient Asia, who became Belia's earlier experiments to become a powerful superbeast of both Siberian tiger and Snow Leopard, A "Tiopard" who was once a formidable fighter against Launa until she breaks the bonds of a false protection of the Book of Destinies.
- Coyote - Launa's partner, mentor and ex-husband who trained her in the ways of god-like trickery but only because he wants Launa's powers to "grow" for the sole purpose of violently removing them for himself out of pure jealously. He was once the proud, powerful trickster among the Native American tribes and the Native Council. After a long battle by Launa under the council, he was stripped of his powers and is to serve his punishment as a immortal human. After another attempt to take Launa's powers fails he comes back with his original powers restored fivefold.
- Lady Belia - The witch who cursed Launa, giving her the feline appearance she possesses to this day and effectively stripping her of her human form. Launa faces her and presumably kills her. But for all her cunning and knowledge, Launa is unable to undo the curse she carries. Echoes of Lady Belia's sinister presence have recently begun to surface in Launa's more recent travels, leaving her to wonder if Belia really is dead.
- Lord McEllis - One of the members of the Voodemor Clan, a ruthless witch-hunting group of extremists that follow the Malleus Maleciarum (The Hammer of Witches) and are the ones solely responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent women and sorcerers. An altercation with Launa resulted in him gaining immortally because of her and now seeks out for revenge.
- Natalia - A extremely dangerous former omega werewolf who became that way after enhancing herself with a massive dose of super serum to kill her abusers. Now defeated by Sayber and under the guidance of Belia as her minion.
- The Native Council - A body of powerful, god-like beings who are in control of the natural order of the tribes and nature of the Earth itself. Their arrogance effects the decisions and faith of the council including those who put the charge. They are Ursus, Ra, Tahera, Occura and the leader Nyctimene. They're not truly villains, but their actions and methods might as well make them so.
- Alyeska - Powerful servant and warrior for Tahera and the true mother of the Invicuna.
