Arnie is a human from Chicago on Earth. He fell through a dimensional portal behind the drive through at a Burger King and found himself in the magical land of Foon. He was in his Toyota Camry and had his podcasting equipment with him. He still gets a weak Wi-Fi signal from the Burger King through the rift, so he decided to host a weekly podcast from The Vermilion Minotaur, an inn in the town of Hogsface.

Arnie Niekamp plays himself.

Family

Arnie has a wife, Sarah, and child back in Chicago. Many in Foon are under the impression that he's not trying too hard to get back to them, although he claims he is.

Mirror Realms

He has an evil counterpart on a mirror world named Carnival Wilson. Carnival Wilson is also the trickster name he was given by the namer Merlinda Flimpery, and he enjoys it very much.

He has a cowboy world counterpart also named Arnie who seems to be better at math than Foon Arnie.

In a family-friendly version of Foon, Arnie hosts a podcast called Hey Kids, it’s a Magic Tavern! and is able to return home to his family regularly as the portal is still open.

Robot Arnie

The Mysterious Man in the Space Bunker has a robot version of Arnie which he says is a real person and totally not a robot at all.

Notes

  • His laptop stays powered thanks to Usidore's "minuscule lightning" spell.
  • He is bad at math.
  • A tapestry of him hangs in the Northeast. It features Arnie coming to Foon in a flame of glory among a pegasus and a unicorn, with Queen Titania perched in the corner with her ivory hands clutched to her bosoms, dewy with perspiration.
  • He can do an impression of Joe Pesci that Chunt thinks is very accurate.
  • His Offices & Bosses character is "Ryan DiGiorgi," the boss's son.
  • Arnie's room at The Vermilion Minotaur is the third door to the right.
  • Arnie still has his car with him. It is a Camry and it is kept hidden in the forest.
  • Arnie has said he was on his way to get some skin tags removed when he fell through then dimensional portal.
  • He has a wizard summoning stone that he has used to summon Jyn'Leeviyah. (It was not obtained on a podcast episode.)
