Fifteen White Clowns are part of a small gallery of eclectic characters that populate the world of Zarkana, including: The Mad Scientist, assisted by his apprentice, is dedicated to experiments that are strange, to say the least: His Pickle Jar gives birth to the Pickled Lady, and his cannon sends Pokus on a flight to another planet. And then there’s his quantum machine…. TI-BOSS is a spoiled little girl. She has a whip and behaves like a veritable "clown tamer." The JOVIANS are the extraterrestrial creatures who live on the planet Jovia. THE ORACLE communicates with the past and the future.
