Who are the main characters of Ordinary World?
Elle is a displaced human from another time. Placed in a survival pod, she missed the end of the world and woke up to this bonkers new land. She is courageous and kind, her common sense exceeds that of those around her and she can be a little bit stubborn when necessary.
Dexy lives in her ancestral home, The Motte & Bailey. She is generous to a fault, open minded and naive and has a habit of getting into trouble as she places her trust too easily. Dexy is the master of flare, always accessorising and coming up with crazy new clothing trends.
Glitch is a tiny green Truffle Pig. He discovers Elle in her capsule and wakes her up leading to them becoming best friends. He is timid and sensitive and glitches out in strange ways when he’s alarmed or there’s trouble about.
Albee is an electronic simulacrum of Elle’s best friend. Albee is the biggest worrier, always concerned for their safety, never able to relax even though technically Albee can’t die. A control freak and hypochondriac that never shuts up.

Who came up with all this nonsense?
Ordinary World is the creation of Luke Lipski. You might say he is the Gawd of creation around here. Really though he’s just a guy sitting at an antique bureau with a modern computer and a view of the countryside. Luke is from England and spends his time straddling Bedfordshire and London.
Luke’s two children are a major influence on Ordinary World. So much so that he’s named the two main characters, Elle and Dexy after them. His kids come up with characters, animals, storylines and more that find there way into the canon. You will see more of this process if you stick with our blog and follow us on social.
When he’s not making up tall tales of Elle and company he draws other things and works as a UI Designer. If you’re interested you can follow Luke Lipski’s personal Instagram here.

Ordinary world touches on themes which are complex and might lead to questions and discussions. The violence is minimal and not overly graphic. There is no sexually explicit material or sexual nudity. However we would recommend parental guidance to ensure that you are happy for your children to read and view our content.
