After battling demons and narrowly escaping death, my friends bring me up to speed on what has been going on while I was "sleeping". Apparently my cybernetics were interfering with the brainwashing techniques my captors were using and so had to be  removed...I really have grown to rely on them though.

While I was under I was being used as an assassin to eliminate high profile political targets within the IGFW.  I was apparently chosen because of my political ties to the Sathari empire who were most likely going to be blamed for the hits. I have asked Emperor Analaeus to disavow me and list me as an enemy of the state until such time as this can be resolved. He has agreed but it is understood that I am not to be actively sought out  within Sathari territories. Unfortunately the IGFW has revoked all of my  bounty hunting licenses and issued a warrant for my arrest. They have allowed the scions of justice to apprehend me and investigate the allegations of murder as they see fit so I'm free...for now.  My ship has been impounded as has all of my resources meaning I have my armor, my guns my wits and my friends. None of us are sure if I can be triggered to kill and so we have asked Cerebron to check and see what all was done to me and possibly correct it.

"Obsidian, I can easily read your most inner thoughts, and for this to work I will  have to. I don't like doing is very...intimate, and intrusive.  However, whatever I may find I promise to keep it to myself save for the pertinent information."

"Do what you have to bud, I couldn't live with myself if I killed another innocent and the whim of whoever is behind this.  So whatever you need to do...just do it."

The others watch intently as Cerebron places his fingers at my temples and his eyes begin to glow.

My very life begins flashing before me...I once said I had enough horrid memories from the war to scar me for several lifetimes...Now Cerebron has them too. So much of my life has changes since I got here...and all of it is laid bare before Mighty a breath it's over and he looks horrified as though he had seen a monster of unimaginable evil.

The others badger him for information and yet he keeps his promise and tell no-one of what he saw in my mind...not the centuries of warfare, not the multiple times I saved all of creation, not the Black Mantis none of it. He pauses for a very long time struggling with his words and trying desperately to grasp the gravity of what he now knows...the multiverse...power beyond his own imagining.  Finally, he chokes back his emotions and simply says.

"Thank you. I'm so very sorry.  There were triggers implanted but they are gone now and you are not a danger to innocent people. I-I would like to talk with you later about what just happened...and um...explain some things...yeah."

My mind is a dangerous place to go running around blindly.  I know far more than any one immortal elf should know about things like the fabric of the universe and such, and now so does Cerebron...and he is only mortal.

After some rest we formulate a plan to get to the bottom of this whole thing and uncover the mastermind behind it all.  My first impulse is to blame Dominion for this but he's retired now and of no real threat to anyone.

"Black Scarab asks me in confidence...does he know about...him now?"

"Look at his eyes mage, does he look like one who knows?"

"Indeed he does.

Throughout our investigation a single name keeps reoccurring, Aabo Immunus...better known as Abominous.  But why would he bother involving himself with me? More importantly , how do I prove I'm innocent, and clear my name?

After questioning the traitor we discover that the Aliens that have been attacking us may not necessarily be doing it for sinister purposes.  We've gotten the temporal coordinates for a temple of sorts  and have infiltrated the place and are making our way through to the inner most reaches. As one might suspect the place is loaded with traps, as I assumed it would be. The whole scenario is playing out like some sort of bad movie. everything is so cliche. Panterra and Shadawar along with Obsidian Psi-Mage are close '
behind. As we make our way I can't help but notice the how ancient the whole  place seems.  My scan set it at millions of years and some of it is crumbling.  The walls are covered in ancient hieroglyphs which my computer is trying to decipher with no success. There's some magic at work here but it's carefully hidden.  We can detect is presence but not what type or purpose. Panterra begins sniffing...literally, as though he has caught a scent.  

"Stop" he says cautiously "I've picked up an unfamiliar scent, very fresh."

"Which way?"

"Ahead and then around the first corner."

"You have point then."

As Panterra moves to the front of our party the Psi-Mage speaks up.

"Are you certain that is a good idea? He's not one of us."

"I know and that's what I'm counting on. Speaking of which, how come none of you guys brought your friends along? Seems like a logical move."

"This was thought to be best handled by only the Obsidian's.  Our friends have no knowledge of these events."

"You kept it a secret? Are you guys all riding the short bus?  What did you think you were protecting them from? Nothing good comes from keeping things from your friends simply because you think they wouldn't understand, or because you're trying to protect them.  I don't do anything alone, as you'll soon see."

As we turn the corner the place opens up into row upon row of pillars with what appears to be an altar in the center. Stealthily we make our way to the center and spread out to make a more difficult target. A lone figure stands in the center and what at first appeared to be a simple altar can now be seen clearly for the command console that it is. The alien operating it doesn't seem to notice us as we get closer and closer.  Then suddenly without warning he raises his hand and The Psi-Mage is gone, vaporized in a flash of blue-white light along with the pillar he was hiding behind.  The little bastard's victory is short lived as a red shuriken impales his hand.  A split second later it explodes removing said hand and sending the creature flying. Before it can recover it's lifted high into the air and dangles their unable to move thanks to Shadawar's Psionics. I draw my pistol and tell the red skinned being

"I'm not sure if you know how this works but I promise you two things: You're gonna answer my questions, and It's gonna hurt each time you don't."

Then he starts laughing, and it doesn't take long to figure out why.  In his good hand is a detonator. I scan the place frantically searching for explosives and find plenty.  The whole place is rigged to blow The thing speaks but my on board translators can't decipher itBut I know what he's saying...and before he can make good on it a voice comes over my comms.

"Don't sweat pal, I got this one."

The room lights up for just a split second and I know what just happened. I lift my faceplate and look right at the alien and say boldly.

"Go for it!"

He smiles smugly and depresses the button...but nothing happens. He looks puzzled and presses the button over and over and over Still nothing.  From the shadows a voice, the same voice from my comms, says.

"The thing about detonators is, they don't work without these..."

Stepping from the shadows Thunderbolt hold up a couple of tiny fusion batteries which only a split second ago, were in the detonator the alien was holding.

"Like I said, Questions, let's get started."

Hot Dawg is the other of my two newest creations for the Animals gang, having been created just recently along with Fearless Flamingo and not in 1995 like the rest of them were. Unlike Fearless though, he did not have any basis of his creation that was dependent on the re-imagining of any of the other previous members. Rather, his creation lied solely on just making something of an opposite number for Cold 'Coon. I figured, if I've got one guy on the team who always appears to be cold, then why not have another guy who always appears to be hot? And, here is the guy who is the answer to that, and as you can read in the bio above, I have explained all of the reasons why he certainly exemplifies his name

Cold 'Coon

Cold 'CoonPopular

Hits329  Comments0    
Cold 'Coon started out as just a silly little raccoon character that was always bundled up in his winter gear all of the time and that was basically his only defining character trait. However, when I began to think about what I really wanted to do with all of these characters and really started to give them each their own individual defining back stories and the Animals grew into this bunch of animated heroes who all have unique skills, jobs, and talents that they combine for the betterment of their society, I knew that I had to have him be something more than just a silly chilly raccoon. So, I began brainstorming ways in which I could incorporate his defining character trait into a job that he could do and contribute to the team with. Since most of the members of the gang all have high profile jobs where they can perform and raise money for charities and whatnot, I decided that he could be a snowboarder. Yet, I also figured that it doesn't come easy for him like it does for the rest. He actually has to work at overcoming his fears to get on the board and do the tricks that make him a champion at it because his constant wearing of heavy clothing no matter what his location or the temperature might be has more to do with his personal anxieties than any real regulation of body temperature, as it's more of a security blanket than anything. But, he is so inquisitive and playful by nature as well, that despite his carefulness and reservations, he is still motivated to seek out such thrills in order to overcome it all. This all stems from the actual natures of real world raccoons who can be extremely curious about things and want to explore and get into things like your trash cans for food, but then also be easily skittish and scared away.

Since the Animals were created back in 1995, I guess you could say that Surfer Frog is definitely a product of the times since he was created at a time when there were a lot of these extreme kinds of characters that participated in things such as surfing and other so-called extreme sports in media all over the place back then. I also made him something of a lifeguard to give him something of an extra talent besides just being the radical surfer dude of the gang, which I guess is partially influenced by the Baywatch craze that also perpetuated the 90's.

Sport Cat is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, member(s) of the Animals gang. He's even older than their two leaders, Kool Wolf and Fearless Flamingo. That doesn't mean that he doesn't like hanging out with them and being a part of the team though, because even though he is older than them, it's only by a year or two, and he enjoys being a role model to those in the gang that are even younger still, because he's all about good sportsmanship and doing your best for yourself and others.

Alright, if Phat Pig is the big guy who is always jovial and eating all of the time, then Lean Lizard is his complete opposite. He is the quite and not very talkative bean pole of a character who keeps slim and trim so that he can squeeze into all kinds of tight spaces and do the kinds of dirty jobs that no one else really likes to do. It's all in the name of keeping his city clean and helping out his friends though, and he would never use his talents for any wrong doing. That's exactly why he is with the Animals and not the Creatures.

This guy was originally just called Fat Pig, with just the regular spelling because he was just the stereotypical funny fat guy cartoon pig character that was always eating. In many ways he is still that kind of a character, but I decided that it would be better to change the spelling of his name to Phat Pig in order to, no pun intended this time, flesh him out, into a better character with more dimensions, even though he is just a 2D character. (OK, that one was a pun.) Now, instead of just being the funny fat guy who always eats, he is the funny fat guy who always eats who is also a celebrity chef complete with all of the hip style and attitude that goes along with it.

Smarty Fly is the super genius of the Animals gang. Every good team needs one, and he's their guy. With his brains he could be doing a lot more than just hanging around with the Animals and being stuck in one place, and I've mentioned it in the bio above, but what I also say is that while he could leave them and do so much more, he would also be very lonely and he values his friendship with the others much more than any desire to explore and learn more about the universe. So, he dutifully sticks with them to help them do what is good for his world and stays always the dreamer that someday his friends might be able to join him in his dreams.

As I noted in my comments about Fearless Flamingo, Game Bird here was originally the one who was a flamingo when I first created him back in 1995. However, since I like for my characters to have more than one meaning to their names, it didn't make much sense for a flamingo to be called a game bird, since birds that are hunted for game are chickens, ducks, quails, etc. and not flamingos. I could have just made him another rooster or duck, but I felt like those kinds of birds are too common in cartoons, so I decided to go with a black swan since it was different and it also allowed me to keep him with a similar design to his original look as a flamingo that ended up going to Fearless. He keeps the long skinny legs and neck while now being in line with what a game bird is, however, in my usual way of using word play, he is of course not hunted for game, but is rather an individual who hunts for games to play himself and is the undisputed master at it.

Fearless Flamingo is the co-leader of the Animals who works along with Kool Wolf in piloting the gang to doing good for their world, and it's very appropriate that he is indeed a pilot!

(Also, a bit of behind the scenes info about this character. The majority of this group of characters are actually quite old, having been created in 1995, but this guy and Hot Dawg, are new creations that I just made up now. I did this because, I needed to add two extra characters to make their numbers even with the Creatures, their rivals. Another thing with this guy is that the reason that he is a flamingo is that, Game Bird, another member of this team, was originally such a bird, but I did not feel that him being such an animal really matched to his name, so I decided to make him a different kind of water fowl that more appropriately fit, and he became a black swan, while this new character became the flamingo.)

My latest grouping of characters, and my first for 2017, The Animals, begins appropriately with their leader, the marvelous Kool Wolf. While each of the rest of the rest of the gang each have their own unique individual jobs and talents that flesh them out as individual personalities in the bunch, Kool Wolf is a bit more undefined. He's just kind of their leader and that's it. Wolves are mysterious creatures anyway, so that's why I pretty much left him like that.

This poor unfortunately named guy comes from the rather insulting term that has often been hurled at many a dog just trying to get some attention or perhaps protect their home only to get shooed away or worse along with the insult. However, upon creating this character, I just ran with it, and he really is a complete imbecile. This poor pooch is very lovable in spite of his sheer stupidity though and only lives to serve.

The only thing that I can say about how I came up with this guy is how cats both big and small silently creep up on their prey before they pounce which is very much a part of his bio above. I just decided to take the meaning of creepy much further and made him an absolute weirdo who no one except his partner likes to have near them, but they keep him and his buddy around due to pity since although they are a criminal gang, they aren't totally heartless.

Steam rises from the hot floor as Shenara makes her way to the rendezvous point. The job was as easy as it the man in black had told her it would be...the passcodes were all up to date, and the package was right where it was supposed to be. Not one alarm tripped, easy in easy out. The golden container was heavy but in her magical pouch it weight nothing. The medallion he had given her kept her presence concealed and the ring she wore made her invisible to just about all kinds of technology. She couldn't help but feel a constant sense of dread, and maybe even just a tad bit of terror. Something about this job was all wrong and she couldn't wait for it to be finished.  The man in black had offered an ungodly amount of credits and she just couldn't pass this job up.  It was the score of a lifetime and she was going against her instincts but this kind of opportunity comes along only once. The risks didn't matter she was tired of scrounging from job to job trying to peddle the exquisite pieces of art she could get her hands on. The risks had never been worth the reward. But this score, this score was different.  She wouldn't have to fence the goods, the client was paying and his credits were clean.  As she entered the factory floor the coming from the molten metal below made it unbearably hot. But the client said something about avoiding thermal scans.  Her gut feeling was that this may be a setup so she came armed, so a long range machine pistol was at her side. A weapon purchased with the down payment for this job ironically...Her hand squeezed the grip of the cold metal and her finger rested gently on the trigger.


The voice seems to come from nowhere and everywhere at the same time.

"A little" she answered back

"This job has put me a bit on edge and to be honest I just wanna conclude our business and be on my way."

"Let's see the package."

Shenara carefully removed the large golden orb-shaped container from her magical pouch and set it on the ground before the black clad figure.

"Perfect" the man chuckled "...simply perfect. here you go. You're every bit as good as my sources said you were...keep the magic items, and as here's fifty million credits"
Shanara couldn't believe what she heard, the payment was five times what they negotiated.

"We only agreed to ten, what gives?"

"Hahahaha, I'm feeling generous and besides, with this I have something worth much more than simple money.'

The man in black reaches down and lifts a nearby grate exposing the liquid metal underneath. The scary part is the ease at which he removes a grate    that must weigh several hundred pounds yet in his hands looks like it weighs but a few ounces. he then simply kicks the container into the white hot liquid below.

"What did you do that for?"

Shanara exclaimed in disbelief.  The degree of risk was astronomical.  The man's actions made no sense.

"My dear, I don't need the contents of the package and I have no intention of opening it but I simply needed you to relieve the previous owner of it."

"heh you guys have some kinda beef? Yeah I get it now, you just wanted to take something he enjoyed a bit of revenge. I can dig that."

"Ah small minds and limited comprehension, That's what I love about mortals.  No dear it was nothing so petty, it was just a spark to light a flame.

Shanara had no idea what he meant bu his tone and the fact that he had called her "Mortal" was enough of a Que to get the hell out before thjings got weird, but there was one lingering question she couldn't resist.

"Say, how did you know that wasn't a fake?  I had more than enough credits to get one. Not that I'd do ANYTHING that stupid."

"Please child, I know Infinitium, and there's no way you could get your hands on enough to pull that off."


"Exactly my dear, it's been a pleasure, don't let the door hit you on the way out."

This job just gets weirder and weirder still Fifty million? She was set for life!  Now to get as far away from this mudball planet as that kind of money can get her.  Thank the gods this job is over and the best part: There's nobody looking for her or that stupid sphere. The down side she could never tell anyone about the score of a lifetime.
