CaughtNotSleeping follows the haunting of a man, known to the fans eponymously as Caught, by a mysterious entity known as "the Slender man". It's an immersive ARG, recognized for it's extensive viewer interaction.
CaughtNotSleeping follows the actions of a genre-savvy protagonist with a attitude problem as he deals with continued Haunting. Known as Caught to the fans, he began posting videos, initially in relation to his troubles sleeping, however eventually he would find himself embroiled in a tug-of-war between two different advisers, who both seem dead set on gaining his trust. Though neither has proven themselves entirely trustworthy, or capable of fending off the supernatural entity that seems to have attach itself to Caught. Caught continues to follow the clues left for him in the form of riddles, and relies heavily on the outside advice of those who watch his channel.
- Caught - The sarcastic and Genre-savvy protagonist. Initially started the channel in hopes of getting some medical advice regarding a sleeping problem but has since become embroiled in a larger investigation.
- RoivasSevil - Mysterious adviser who often engages in prompting Caught to take specific actions through the veil of riddles and codes. Seems opposed to 1AmTheHelp3r
- 1AmTheHelp3r - The second adviser character, appearing several months into the series, 1AmTheHelp3r also prompts Caught to take certian actions through puzzles and riddles, but has proven himself to also be far more physical in his methods. He is also more interactive and often engages viewers with advice and "rules". Seems opposed to RoivasSevil.
- The "Slender man" - Supernatural entity that seems to have attached itself to the protagonist. Typically seen when Caught is unaware of it's presence.
- Natalie - a fan of the series who approached Caught and aided him in solving the Help3r coffin.
