Exterminatus Now is a webcomic drawn in Sonic-style artwork. Written mostly by Lothar and drawn alternatively by Virus and Silversword (Eastwood is the fourth contributor), it follows the adventures of two Inquisitors, a mercenary, and a daemon hunter as they fight the many evil and dangerous creatures that inhabit the world of Mobius.
- Harold Eastwood – A grey arctic fox who suffers from a severe addiction to coffee. He can be extremely quick and agile when he feels it necessary, but this is usually only when his well-documented arachnophobia comes into play.
- Syrus “The Virus” Zuviel – A brown rat, and one of the two Inquisitors, along with Eastwood. To call him incompetent would be unfair, as Virus is actually very good at what he does. Unfortunately, what he actually "does" has yet to be determined. A career underachiever, he has about as much self-motivation as a Fernexite has social skills. He is calm and collected, except under pressure when it counts, and while possessed mostly of good intentions, he is either too lazy, cowardly, or just plain idiotic to follow through.
- Lothar Hex – A quick-tempered echidna cyborg hired by Virus and Eastwood. With warrants for arrest on almost every continent, the Inquisitors probably couldn’t have picked a less appropriate agent of justice. However, by being officially inducted into the warband of an inquisitor, Hex has been acquitted of all crimes to date, and is therefore exempt from punishment.
- Ryoushi “Rogue” Nekittou – An orange cat that uses a beam sword as a weapon. Though quite powerful, he is extremely serious, cocky and tends to over-estimate his own abilites. (An important note to remember is that Rogue does not in any way represent his creator, Silversword, as many readers assume.)
- Blasphemy – A chao that evolved into a daemon-like creature after coming into contact with one of the creatures. Blasphemy is Virus’s personal pet, and has a knack for terrorizing Inquisitor Eastwood, but gets along well with Lothar after a rough start. It should be noted that the chao’s name is Blasphemy, not Humphrey. This confusion was caused by the massive misunderstanding of a minor joke, and asking the authors about this will most likely result in a reply of brutally sarcastic and angry rage.
- Commander Schaefer – The commander-in-chief of the Mobian Inquisition. A sizable bear, he appears to get his kicks out of sending Virus, Eastwood, Hex, and Nekittou out on exceptionally dangerous missions. Apparantly, he also has a bizarre fetish for chickens, which Virus used to blackmail him in order to obtain a private lodging.
- Simmons – Schaefer's assistant and adjutant. While feigning respect, he occasionally does manage to get a leg up on his superior.
 Secondary Characters
- Jamilla Townsend – A female penguin and Special Covert Agent for the Mobian Inquisition (under the codename "The Elusive Camel"), Jamilla helped the team to complete a mission by freeing them from capture. She was asked to join the team as a token female member, but declined.
- The Beaver and Wolf - A pair of characters who have appeared for comic relief as minions of whatever heretical organisation the team is currently invading. They reappear despite being apparently killed. They did not, however, appear as minions of Silas Morth- the authors have stated this was deliberately done, since they could not be worked into the plot.
- Silas Morth - A rogue Inquisitor who fell from grace and began worshipping the Patterner. He was Eastwoods best friend and partner for a period of time, until he went rogue, something that still sits badly with Harry. Since then, Silas has formed the Cult of The Untrue Stripes as a method of achieveing daemonhood. Despite being far more intelligent and cunning than Eastwood, he has far too much confidence in his schemes, and occasionally slips into supervillain clichés (Such as forcing Jamilla to dress in a skimpy silver bikini).
The main mission of the Mobian Inquisition is to stamp out the worship of various Dark Gods, similar in many ways to the four Chaos Gods of the Warhammer universe, except Nurgle is replaced with Fernex. Also, there is a more noble pantheon of Just Gods.
Whilst their followers, daemons and plots have been seen within the comic itself, the Dark Gods themselves have only appeared as an aside from the main comic, in particular the Dark Gods Poker Night, in which the four gathered to play cards. The Just Gods had a similar comic (Albeit for one strip) in which they were portrayed as a group of stereotypical D&D playing nerds.
- Soulthirster - Similar to Warhammer's Slaanesh, the Soulthirster is the god of pleasure and desire, whose gender is ambiguous (similar to Slaanesh). Her/his Daemons shown thus far are shapeshifters who often assume the forms of beautiful women to seduce the unwary (almost doing so to Eastwood).
- The Hound - Equivalent to Khorne, this deity of war and destruction appears as an armoured red dog-like creature. His daemons are frequently fought by the Inquisition, and take the form of huge daemonic dogs.
- Fernex - Recalling the Machine God (Although entirely malevolent, perhaps a technological equivalent of Nurgle), Fernex is the patron of technology and machinery. He is known to frequently possess electronic appliances (toasters especially, though possessed Xboxes and scanners have been seen) and his worshippers are known to heavily replace their body parts with cybernetics. He is frequently blamed by the authors for technical difficulties experienced by the authors which prevent them from updating properly at times.
- The Patterner - Much like Tzeenech, the Patterner who appears as a green alien-like creature with one large burning eye and many limbs is master of fate, deception and treachery. He is the patron deity of Silas Morth, and his daemons are spider-like in nature.
