Polaris Wiki

Brooke Thorne (née Lawson), better known by her internet alias Dodger, is a primary member of Polaris. She runs two youtube channels, PressHearttoContinue, her gaming channel and DexterityBonus, her vlog channel. She is also one of the main hosts for much of Polaris' content.

Channel Content[]


On PressHearttoContinue, she hosts a news show called Gaming Newz which primarily covers the main gaming news from the past week which sometimes also slips into technology news as well. She also plays random different games from both her livestreams and normal recordings on her gaming channel which mainly consists of Love/Dating simulators and other very unique and odd indie games.


On DexiterityBonus, she hosts a show called Coffeh Time (which changes in name depending on the type of beverage she is drinking in the specific episode, i.e Teh Time when she is drinking tea and Watah TIme when she is drinking water) in which she talks about what she did on the day of the episode's release. She recently started hosting a show on this channel called Welcome to the Fandom in which she talks about a specific topic of a specific subject that has a certain fandom surrounding it (i.e the fandom of Watson in Sherlock Holmes). She is also currently in the process of reviving one of her older series named Swords and Stitches, a DIY show in which she (and possibly a guest) create stuff with video game symbolism.
