Fantendo - Side Stories is a 2D animated series created by RTA fan (t∣b∣c). The series originally belonged to SpookSounds (t∣b∣c), but she gave it to RTA fan. The series revolves around the RTAverse's version of F.A.N.T.
|Naomi Richards||The woman who founded the RTAverse version of F.A.N.T, Naomi is rather young and people don't tend to believe her when she says she founded F.A.N.T, because of her age.
Naomi is usually docile and calm, but can be set off very easily and she can tend to go into a blind rage when she is angered, getting close to hurting people.
Naomi possesses pyrokinetic and psychic powers, and she can easily have visions triggered by the smallest things. Naomi also has possession of a shotgun.
|Terry Cunningham||Considered the first person to be recruited to F.A.N.T, Terry is a young man who has no powers, but people are constantly under the impression he is, even with how many times he's proved he has no powers.
Terry is usually the light-hearted member of any missions he goes out on. Terry is usually highly optimistic and very jokey around other people.
Terry does not have any superpowers, but he does have rather tremendous athletic skill. He uses this to his advantage when enemies try and escape.
|Howard Wilson||A skilled pyrotechnician, Howard has been qualified to operate with explosives for seven years. He can legally demolish buildings, and tends to use this to take out enemy bases.
Howard is usually silent until he believes it's a good time to speak up and suggest something. Howard also tends to speak up when he has a good joke he wants to say.
Howard is skilled with explosives, and has some strength. He has demolished about 40 buildings and is always F.A.N.T's first choice for destruction of enemy bases.
|Isabel Baráth||A Hungarian woman who had only just moved to the US, Isabel is someone who is trying to find ways to do good with her superpowers, but finds it hard to do so.
Isabel is very laid back. She tends to try and maintain an attitude that makes her come off as a roughneck, but always fails to do so.
Isabel has superhuman strength. She is uncertain how powerful her strength is, but she has lifted a 10-tonne rock without any trouble in the past. She can also shoot lasers from her eyes.
|Kareem Ghaly||An EDM and Mountain Dew driven guy who had recently moved to the States from Egypt, Kareem spent most of his life admiring superheroes like Superman and was upset he couldn't have powers like Superman.
Kareem is usually bouncy and full of energy. He has a crush on Isabel to an extent, because of her Superman-like powers. Kareem is also fairly knowledgeable about pop-culture.
Kareem is skilled in hand-to-hand combat. His high energy also helps him stay awake and alert longer than most people. Kareem is also very hard to fatigue.
|Benedykta Grzeskiewicz||A Polish woman who joined F.A.N.T when it started up, Benedykta is the main scientist. She has knowledge in quite a few fields and assisted Anna Edmondson in getting her PhD.

Emerson has an incredibly short fuse. She can easily go into a large fit of rage if things don't work. She blames a lot of her anger on the drugs she took.
Emerson has telekinetic powers. She gained them when she had a drug problem and took a syringe from a top secret lab. She injected the liquid and ended up with telekinetic powers. However, it's possible the liquid only "unlocked" her powers. Emerson only uses her powers when she absolutely needs to.
|Bob Rose||A comic book artist who was brought into F.A.N.T. because of his apparent potential to lead a team, Bob is the leader of the organisation's second squad. Bob has absolutely no experience with being a hero.
Bob is very calm. He can get his points across easily and has endless patience. Bob never really ends up shouting at anyone and finds it crucial to orchestrating near-perfect attacks.
Bob is a very talented artist. He can draw very realistic images and can also use his artistry to fool people. Bob does have an unusual pencil that can bring objects he draws to life, but he is not sure how it works.
|Nadia Brodeur||Known as the "Superpowered Supermodel", Nadia is a woman from France. She was planning to go into modelling but when she was contacted by Naomi, she decided to join F.A.N.T.. When she is not working with F.A.N.T., Nadia is quietly pursuing her modelling career.
Nadia is usually very quiet and mysterious. She usually uses her eyes to show how she feels. She keeps a very stoic air around her, and it usually leads to her enemies feeling uncomfortable. She only shares secrets about herself with the people she well and truly trusts.
Nadia has multiple psychic abilities - telekinesis, telepathy and precognition. She gained these powers during a thunderstorm in her hometown of Orléans. Her psychic powers are somewhat strong. Nadia also has very strong eyesight. She can see things no one else would be able to spot. This has lead Nadia to see unusual things, including her own heart and inside her best friend's brain.

Yvette has terrakinetic powers. Like Nadia, she gained these powers from an unusual thunderstorm in France. She doesn't have much control over her terrakinesis and can cause quite some damage as a result. She also has X-ray vision. The bolt that struck Yvette hit her brain, and the electricity from the bolts reacted with the neurons in her brains and she wound up with a great amount of knowledge. Yvette is very gymnastic as well, and is wishing to join the British Olympic team.
|Chauncey Thompson||A basketball player who is considered on the level of LeBron James, Chauncey is a fairly humble guy from Traverse City in Michigan.

Tyshawn is rather brash. He tends to do things with reckless abandon and can easily plow through about 20 men. Tyshawn can easily restrain himself if he feels he is going a bit too far, however.
Tyshawn is physically strong. His strength is not on a superhuman level, but he can bench press about 550lbs at one time. As stated above, he toughened himself up to survive in the neighbourhood he grew up in. Even with his somewhat large stature, Tyshawn can run fairly fast.
|Kaori Tsukuda||A woman from Japan with a license to exceed speed limits, Kaori is a very skilled driver. She is usually called in to big Hollywood movies to do their car stunts. Kaori decided to join F.A.N.T. because she felt her skill behind the wheel might help the organisation.
Kaori is rather level-headed. She keeps her cool most of the time so that when she is driving she has full focus on the road. If she loses her temper she could easily go off the road and the consequences could be deadly. Kaori likes to joke around when she isn't driving, though.
Kaori as very fast reaction times. She can move out of the way of dangerous enemies even when they're merely seconds away from attacking her. These reaction times are also how she manages to drive in excellent fashion no matter what. Kaori also has cryokinetic powers that allow her to freeze enemy cars' engines in an instant.

Now the youngest in the entire organisation, Zeke finds himself messing around with the rest of his squad more than actually doing field work.
Zeke is usually full of energy. He jokes around with the rest of the Squanders on many occasions when they aren't working (which is most of the time due to how often they shrug off responsibility) and gets along with the other four very well.
