The story revolves around 4 main characters: the man, the monkey, the black hole and the cosmic monster.
The man and the monkey bring a reality element to the story; they are the earthly witnesses, forever conniving, but never quite understanding the nature of the events that affect them. They are at the same time fascinated and frightened by the different phenomenons they observe, so they try to decipher the structure of matter, of the cosmos and of black holes.
The cosmic monster represents the dark side, the fears which are being awakened in our minds by the unfathomable mystery of the universe. The monster eventually proves to be an engaging character, who becomes the butt of the man and the monkey’s mischievous pranks.
