This page is about the people who are responsible for Habitica. For the Mage weapon, see Mage Equipment.
The staff members of Habitica can be distinguished from other contributors by their purple player tier titles in Tavern Chat, the Hall of Heroes, and elsewhere on the site. All staff members are listed in the Hall of Contributors (direct link). Staff members have Habitica-style avatars, but are not part of the group referred to as Non-Player Characters (NPCs). As of September 2015, the only staff members who have appeared in Habitica (i.e., in-character) are Lemoness, as part of the Dilatory storyline, and SabreCat, as part of the Stoikalm Steppes storyline.
Current Staff Edit
Lefnire (Tyler Renelle)Edit
Title: Underwater Burrito
Lefnire is the first Habitica co-founder. He started the initial alpha version of Habitica and launched the Kickstarter. He loves nutrition, exercise, and coding. He is the "Chief Technical Officer," since he is one of the driving forces behind the game's software, open-source community, and business development. His main contribution, however, was burrito.
Lemoness (Siena Leslie)Edit
Title: Lemonade Sorceress
Lemoness is one of the co-founders of Habitica. She is the "Chief Design and Marketing Officer," which is a very fancy title that we didn't just make up. She manages the community (with the help of the incredible mods), runs social media and marketing, oversees art and writing submissions, and designs and runs all of the events. She spends much of her time talking with everyday Habiticans in the Tavern. She also creates much of the game's pixel art. In-game, Lemoness runs the Seasonal Shop, and has appeared as part of the mysterious earthquakes and Stoïkalm Steppes story lines. See Lemoness's Staff Spotlight.
Redphoenix (Vicky Hsu)Edit
Title: Ruby Avian
Redphoenix is the third Habitica co-founder. She is the "Chief Executive Officer" and therefore gets stuck doing all the boring stuff, which she mystifyingly describes as "fascinating" and "stop calling it boring." She has a background in film, law, and martial arts. She handles Habitica's business and legal needs. See Redphoenix's Staff Spotlight.
SabreCat (Sabe Jones)Edit
Title: Sabretooth Tiger
SabreCat's genius is in testing and improving Habitica's content. See SabreCat's Staff Spotlight.
Title: Winter Lily
Paglias works on Habitica's programming and on fixing bugs. See Paglias's Staff Spotlight.
Title: Lord of Lego
Viirus works on the Habitica iOS and Android apps, and is a prolific blacksmith. He rose to fame with the release of the Habitica app prototype "RabbitRPG", gaining a large fan base throughout Habitica. So large was his fan base, that he was head hunted by Habitica staff to join the team. He can still be found in the Tavern and around GitHub. He is vouched by Breadstrings for his endless patience with Breadstrings never-ending emails of bug reports. See Viirus's Staff Spotlight.
Title: Fancy-Haired Rogue
Rumored to be a blond, sentient hotel. See TheHollidayInn's Staff Spotlight.
beffymaroo is made of snowflakes and pandas. She is a wonderful pixelist who came to fame by repeatedly answering the same questions repeatedly even though it was repeatedly redundant as she had repeatedly answered them in the last hour (repeatedly). Being a Socialite at that level requires a lot of patience and kindness, both of which beffymaroo has in abundance. See beffymaroo's Contributor Spotlight.
Former Staff Edit
Slappybag (Stan Lindsey) Edit
Slappybag is no longer a staff member, but in the past, he contributed to code, feature design, and community management, and was described as a "man of many hats."
Litenull (Tomaž Korenika) Edit
While Tomaž was a staff member, he was described as the "Royal Blacksmith and Roving Pirate." He worked to get rid of bugs and was instrumental in the development of the original HabitRPG mobile app.
