Period: The firm-but-kind father. Though he sets and enforces rules, Period is not too complicated and is happy as long as he is respected.
Comma: The peace-keeping middle child. Because Comma is always expected to solve every problem (even the ones that really should be settled by Period or Emdash) and her expecations are always changing, she has developed some serious issues--but she still bears the weight of breaking up the complicated into the managable.
Semicolon: Comma's best friend. Loyal and sensitive, Semicolon is used to bearing some of Comma's load whenever she can.
Colon: The arrogant cousin. Fortunately, Colon doen't have a lot to do with the family.
Quotation mark: The insecure tag-along. Often overlooked and sometimes abused, Quotation Mark has gotten to a point where she can't go anywhere by herself.
Apostrophe: The college graduate with the crap job. Apostrophe wishes she could find a job that lives up to her high expectations, but she keeps being shunted into places she just doesn't belong, such as plural words without any possessions.
Exclamation point: The annoying little brother! He's always screaming! Or shouting! Or yelling!
Question mark: The down-and-out aunt. Question Mark can't for the life of her get herself together.
Ellipses: The triplets deep in the Terrible Twos. No one can handle them.
Emdash: Comma's little sister. Though likeable, sassy, and artistic, Emdash wishes more than anything to be like Comma and is always battling some identity crisis or other.
Bracket: The uncle who shows up for the food, skulks around for a while, and leaves. Who was that guy, anyway?
Parenthese: The awkward step-child. She doesn't really belong in the family, but she doesn't seem to belong outside of it, either.
