Penny Pothos (aka: Marble Queen Pothos)

She's the one that spikes the punch at the Christmas party every year, but never dares make a scene by making naughty images on the copy machine.
The Silent Achiever
Sergio Sansevieria is a cornerstone of any office, always standing up tall when faced with difficult situations, such as extremely low light and slight neglect. Sergio Sansevieria is a self-starter and very rarely asks for help from any other members of the team, honestly, he's better left alone. Don't mistake independence for antisocial behavior, as he is offer a very snappy, formal vibe. Although rigid on the exterior, his manners and formality make him a stellar office companion. Don't expect him to dance at the Christmas party, though, he's the one that makes sure the jams never stop.

The easy going nature of her workflow is almost effortless. ZZ can take anything that comes down the corporate ladder with the greatest of ease without showing even the slightest amount of stress at any time. Even areas where other co-workers would struggle (like that dark corner office that all the newbies tend to get), she loves. You can seriously leave ZZ alone in your office while you go on a European Vacation without worrying about her struggling without you. Don't forget to bring her a souvenir though!
The Office Socialite
Don't be fooled by Bobby Brazil, although he's not as tall and imposing as his other co-workers like ZZ and Sergio, he makes up for it with his character. Bobby loves to vine and dine around the office and often finds himself hanging into other cubical aside from his own. Bobby is also, very, how do we say this nicely about him, easy to replicate. Before you know it, you're going to have an entire office full of Bobbies, since he's so easy to propagate. Bobby doesn't like to be taken care of, but he does love to get showered with attention from onlookers. He's a rambling sort, so let him roam to be happiest in your office space. Just a warning, he will dance at the Christmas party.
The Office Brown-nose
Angie Aglaonema is the perfect office companion, as her permanent record never shows an absent day, tardy days, or even sick days. In fact, Ms. Aglaonema seems to have some sort of ability to be bulletproof. Stressful days, she takes them with stride. Even if a change of department is in order, Ms. Aglaonema simply packs her stuff and moves to her new spot with zero hassle or stress. Want to take a long spa weekend, she's got you!
