EverymanHYBRID is an amateur fitness group that began posting videos to YouTube in March 2010. The cast consisted of three college-aged guys named Vincent (Main Host), Evan (Dietary "Specialist"), and Jeff (Camera and Editing). The videos contained health tips and advice for anybody interested in "the healthy lifestyle on a budget".
From the beginning, a close connection to the audience was important, and friendly relationships were built over the internet. The cast was known to be well versed in internet humor, memes, creepypasta, and popular culture, particularly horror movies and horror based video games, etc.
In the first five entries, a familiar sight may be found as a horrific easter-egg: Slenderman, originating from the SomethingAwful forums. The entity seems way too blatantly placed and the crew was originally criticized for merely creating an awful "Slenderman rip-off series", that is, until their sixth episode, in which their true intentions regarding the "obvious" Slenderman are revealed.
EverymanHYBRID is still in progress and seems as if we are reaching the climax in terms of the story progression. For those who want to catch up, a general timeline of the series has been created. For ease of reading this it has been split into 6 timelines: Timeline 2010, Timeline 2011, Timeline 2012, Timeline 2013, Timeline 2014, and Timeline 2015.
Origin and History
EMH was created originally as a health video vlog by friends Vincent, Evan, and Jeff. Later appearances are made by Jeff's brother Alex and Damsel from Slenderblog 'CANYOUSEETHEWORDS' The three originally intend to prank the audience by creating a fake Slender Man and placing it in their videos, in obvious places. However, after Episode 6, things go south as the real Slenderman appears in Evan's house.
The videos since that initial sighting record the friends' attempts to unravel a mystery concerning their pasts, an unknown puppeteer known as HABIT (who is later revealed to be inhabiting Evan), Slenderman, the Rake, and viewers, in which they are all involved in ways they do not understand.
The series makes references to House of Leaves, Slender Man, The Rake, MarbleHornets, TribeTwelve, and a few other Slenderman vlogs.
What is assumed to be HABIT posts videos on the EMH channel that the characters are seemingly unable to see.
◾Vincent - Host of EMH show, and is considered to be the main protagonist.
◾Evan - Dietary specialist, actively takes action against Slenderman, and shows signs of mental instability. As of late, appears to be fully under HABIT's control.
◾Jeff - Cameraman, brother of Alex. Was killed by Evan/HABIT in ":D"
◾Alex - Jeff's younger brother, targeted by the Rake.
◾Stephanie/Damsel - CANYOUSEETHEWORDS? slenderblogger, aids the characters, friend of Jessa. Had a baby girl with Evan before being murdered by an "inHABITed" Evan along with her new born daughter.
◾Jessa - Jeff's girlfriend, friend to Damsel. Goes missing at the beginning of the series.
◾Dr. Corenthal - A mutual childhood doctor of various characters.
◾HABIT - A malicious being who influences the characters' actions. He has admitted to being associated with the Rake and Slender Man, but this association is unclear. He seems to be targeting Evan.
◾The Rake - a creature, referred to as "a horrible deformed dog thing" by HABIT, with unknown motives. Responsible for several deaths and injuries.
◾Slender Man - A being stalking the EMH crew, with unknown motives.
◾Jessie - A close friend of the EMH crew, former girlfriend of Evan, and Niece of Dr. Corenthal. She helps the crew find out information on Dr. Corenthal, but is eventually killed by The Rake.
◾Ryan - Another close friend of the EMH crew, though mainly a minor character in the series. He is the first person to be invited into the Seven Trials of HABIT. After refusing to play the trials, he was pulled out of his car and killed while driving. It is unknown of who killed him, but it is speculated that The Rake was the one who killed him because he said he heard whispering. Something Rake is heard doing in multiple videos.
◾Jeff and Alex's Parents - Having died during the beginning of the series, they are only mentioned. They are believed to have been murdered by Slender Man or the Rake.
◾Lexi - Vincent's girlfriend as of "HALLOWEEN HANGOVER." She never makes an appearance on-screen and it is revealed that the Slender Man killed her in "A summoning."
◾Linnie - A mysterious woman that tried contacting the EMH crew but has never been seen on camera. The boys find a letter written by her near her corpse, which leads to the discovery of Dr. Corenthal.
◾William - The person whom Linnie's letter was addressed to.
◾Rose - Jessie's grandmother and most likely a victim of the Rake.
◾The Baby - The child of Evan and Stephanie. She is killed by HABIT before she can receive name and it is heavily implied he ate her afterwards (Personal note: That made me throw up a little in my mouth).
It is also to note that EMH did a crossover with TribeTwelve, and thus all characters in TT are connected of the EMH universe. In this crossover, characters from DarkHarvest00 appeared, however, this was a cameo. A second TribeTwelve crossover occurred after an appearance by HABIT in DEUS EX MACHINA. However, the events of this crossover (Severance and Brige to Nowhere) are mostly unconnected to the overall story in EMH.
Ok so as usually we will begin with the characters then I will move on to the 2010-2015 timeline's I will also cover a commonly used term 'Iteration'.
