‘Solar Opposites’ brings to life a charismatic ensemble of main characters — Korvo, Terry, Jesse, Yumyulack, Funyulack, Red Goobler, Vanbo, Terri, and The Pupa.
Following a crash landing on Earth, these characters grapple with the enforced reality of staying, leading to numerous debates about whether it’s a boon or a bane.
Back home, their highly advanced world, Planet Shlorp, had launched a fleet of a hundred ships to colonize new planets just moments before its tragic demise.
Solar Opposites Characters
The show spins multiple narratives in parallel. One of the most intriguing focuses is on a society of miniaturized humans, victims of Yumyulack’s replication, and prisoners within a terrarium dubbed “the Wall.”
With the advent of the third season, another narrative starts unraveling, tracking the activities of the SilverCops, a band of intergalactic corrupt police officers who repeatedly arrest and maltreat Shlorpians escaping the wreckage of their homeworlds.

Solar Opposites Season 4
As “Solar Opposites Season 4” ushers in notable backstage alterations, we’ve compiled a concise cast and character guide. Familiarize yourself with the line-up before the season kicks off on Monday, August 14, 2023.
Meet Korvotron, or Korvo for short, the compelling lead character of Solar Opposites! He stands out in the colorful ensemble with an intellect that surpasses the rest and a knack for rational thinking. But don’t be fooled; his social skills might need some polishing.
Korvo hails from the utopian planet of Shlorp, a proud member of the Shlorpian species. But his tranquil life took a turn for the chaotic when a rogue asteroid devastated his home planet. Left with no choice, Korvo, his partner Terry, and their quirky replicants, Yumyulack and Jesse, escaped to Planet Earth.
Here, amid a strange new world, they seek to establish a decent living, carving out a place they can call home. Step into their journey, filled with trials, tribulations, and maybe some good old Earthly fun.
This creature may appear as a simple slug, but it holds within it a powerful secret — the collective knowledge and history of the entire planet of Shlorp, encoded in its DNA. As it ripens with time, Pupa promises a spectacular metamorphosis: it will devour and reshape an entire planet into a replica of Shlorp.
Take a closer look at Pupa’s captivating transformation. Starting as a mellow yellow, it alters its hue as it inches closer to its destiny as a planetary rebuilder. Follow its radiant display, an exciting sequence of yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, greens, and blues. As each season passes, anticipate the explosion of color signifying Pupa’s arrival as the planet destroyer. Step into this thrilling journey and witness an interstellar marvel unfold right before you!
Terry is a laid-back alien, more interested in Earth’s pleasures than in his mission. Although he’s supposed to be a Pupa expert, his knowledge seems no greater than anyone else’s, suggesting laziness more than ignorance.
Despite sharing a bed with Korvo, Terry insists they’re friends, not lovers. He’s seen with various human partners in “The Lavatic Reactor”, indicating they might have an open relationship. However, he recoils from a kiss with Korvo, suggesting a platonic bond. As Shlorpians are open about sexual exploration, the true nature of their relationship remains ambiguous.
Yumyulack, Korvo’s replicant and a former bounty hunter from Shlorp, must adapt to school life on Earth, a task that irks him. He professes to study humans, shrinking and collecting those who cross him, but it seems more an exertion of power. His suit auto-eliminates threats, even taking down a neo-Nazi bar.
Despite finding his “sister” Jesse irritating, he secretly craves her approval, a sentiment mirrored towards humans. Yumyulack might be the Shlorpian who changes the most throughout season one, possibly developing empathy, though the extent is debatable.
Jesse, a tritagonist in Solar Opposites alongside Yumyulack and The Pupa, mirrors Terry as his replicant. Embodying Terry’s optimism, free-spiritedness, and compassion, she eagerly engages with people and uncovers Earth’s joyous facets.
The residents of the wall revere her as a saint, as her periodic offerings of candy and trinkets, thrown out of pity, serve as their key source of supplies.
Characters In The Wall
Yumyulack shrank Cherie, a Benihana waitress, over a shrimp misunderstanding. A fierce fighter, she adeptly applies her Benihana skills to help Tim overthrow the Duke. Displaying her noble heart, she plans to share the discovered exit from the Wall, hoping to enable everyone’s escape.
However, Tim, desperate to maintain his control over the Wall, murders her and discards her body outside. It’s almost certain she’s gone, marking an end to Cherie and the character voiced by Christina Hendricks.
Lindsey Tim Weekly
Yumyulack shrank Tim, an ordinary man in a red shirt, to complete his collection of all colors. Inside the Wall, Tim flourishes, leading the resistance against the Duke. His abrupt transition from hero to villain in the seventh episode raises curiosity for his role in Solar Opposites’ second season.
While he seems heroic, the limited exposure of the Wall people keeps his true nature obscure. Just like the Duke, he appears to be a nobody in the real world who became a power-drunk within the Wall. After battling against the Wall’s tyranny in the first season, Tim is set to become its source in the next.
The Duke / Ringo
Ringo, aka The Duke, was the harsh leader of the Wall, favoring the rich and despising the poor. His rule was contested by The Rebellion, especially Tim and Cherie. Amid a rebellion, he fled through a Wall hole, encountering and battling Cherie outside.
Trapped in a toy ship by Jeff the Possum, they grudgingly befriended each other. Noticing signs of Cherie’s pregnancy, The Duke confirmed it through a urine test, revealing his strange collection.
Cherie and Tim’s daughter, Pezlie, earned her name from her unique birthplace: a PEZ dispenser. She is the first human born in a miniaturized state, conceived during Tim and Cherie’s fleeting relationship. After Tim’s betrayal, The Duke discovered Cherie’s pregnancy and safeguarded both mother and unborn Pezlie until his untimely demise.
When Cherie went into labor, she found shelter in a PEZ dispenser. As she delivered Pezlie, Jesse unknowingly picked up the dispenser. She stopped eating the PEZ, citing its chalky taste, and discarded the dispenser, unwittingly sparing the mother-daughter duo.
Halk, a Wall War 1 hero, saved many during the Nerds’ flood. As a former executive editor for Fox’s drama Bones, his investigative background led to his assignment on a serial killing case.
Despite initial loyalty to Tim, he started questioning his leadership upon discovering his deceit. In Season 3, he partners with Cherie to dethrone Tim and restore truth to the Wall. However, he often disagrees with Cherie’s methods. Yearning to retire from heroism, he dreams of starting a family with his wife.
As Jesse is viewed more favorably than Yumyulack, a religion has emerged within the Wall, led by the Bowinian Church, named after Jesse’s bow. Sister Sasha, a seemingly likable character, manages the church. It’s uncertain whether she survives the season’s end.
Glen, a neighbor living to the right of the Solar Opposites, suffers a foot injury when Terry shoots him in “The Cubic Lattice Crystallizer”. Subsequently, Terry forces Glen into a cryogenic pod and launches him into space for seven years.
However, Yumyulack’s satellite sends the pod into a wormhole. The Silvercops eventually pick him up and imprison him. In “Terry and Korvo Get in a Big Screaming Fight in the Taco Bell Parking Lot”, Glen joins the ranks of the SilverCops.
LoneSun, a muscular, medium-sized purple alien, dons a SilverSuit complete with a Stetson hat and electric guitar. Initially, he appears as a friendly SilverCop alien eager to help Glen join their ranks.
However, it later surfaces that he was merely seeking a scapegoat for Cromus’ murder, a GoldCop. Despite his efforts, his SilverTeam eventually turns against him, following their enemies’ defeat.
Ventrez, a blue alien with magenta eyes and a chin beard-shaped five-o’clock shadow, serves as LoneSun’s second-in-command in the SilverCops’ SilverTeam.
Glorgax, a chartreuse alien insectoid featuring green hair, orange-yellow antennae, light brown eyelids, and green lips, initially appears helpful and somewhat flirtatious with Glen.
However, her seduction serves a purpose – to assist Glen in bonding with the stolen SilverSuit that LoneSun pilfered from the evidence locker. She even employs Salt to kickstart the SilverSuit bonding process for Glen. But ultimately, she and her SilverTeam reveal their true intentions – they were merely using him.
Cromus, a massive, muscular grayish-brown Osmernian with tusks on his prominent chin and a scar marring the left side of his face and chin, displays his species’ unique purple blood and green brains.
Initially, Cromus comes across as an arrogant, cool, and rude figure who dismisses Glen simply because LoneSun claims that human possesses intuition. He even goes as far as suggesting that Glen should return to his origins. However, beneath his undercover GoldCop exterior, he was merely doing what was necessary, even for Glen.
