#1 – The Duke of Cats

The Duke of Cats

It is something of an embarrassment to various World Security Organisations that various “10 Most Wanted” Lists contain the Duke of Cats, to the point where “Officially” no one knows the identity of this criminal mastermind, and he just has a blank space where his portrait should be. Governments don’t like to have a single domestic cat sitting alongside Warlords, Despots, Terrorists and Other-worldly threats. They feel doing so takes the seriousness out of the thing.

That being said, The Duke of Cats surely deserves his place on those lists – a criminal mastermind with enormous resources, both financial and political, who has come close to world domination on three separate occasions in the past twenty years, and would have succeeded in any of them if hadn’t been for a certain Gnome and Guinea Pug duo.  He has armies of minions, both human and feline, and access to enormous funds.  He is rumored to have numerous powerful figures on his payroll.

No one is really sure of his origins, as surely a hyper-intelligent talking cat should have some fairly obvious origin story, but as people can work out, he just has some aura to him that makes people take him seriously despite appearances.

#18 Escher Cat

Escher Cat

Escher Cat

Escher Cat’s only explanation for herself is that she’s “Just like a cheshire cat, only more confusing.” She’s actually from the Holloworld, a closed underground society that makes fantastic machinery near the earth’s core. She’s a discarded genetic prototype, a mix of tiger, wolf, cheetah and who knows what else, too weird for mass production, but too rare to be killed. Underboss, the leader of Holloworld, tried to keep her trapped within a special prison, where certain laws of physics didn’t apply. However, she was able to navigate it with ease. Part of her construction included a number of unusual navigation abilities, such that she’s never off-balance or spatially confused.  As she explored the prison, she discovered a device (now on her right hand) that allowed her to focus her powers to open little gates into a pocket dimension called sub-space.

So she took the device, used the portals to escape Holloworld, and now she’s on the run from Underboss. When she meets Gunsmoke Jones, she at first tries and fails to take the book,then arbitrarily decides that he needs her protection. Given how crazy she is, he’s not sure about that but honestly, he’s a little scared to tell her that he can take care of himself. It’s easier to just let her tag along. And jumping into subspace occasionally has its benefits, even if it makes him sick sometimes. Also, a lot of the bones, feathers, cloth and stuff she has on her outfit are things that are extremely rare on the surface, things Gunsmoke has only read about on screens.

She has dim memories as a kitten-cub of being given some kind of chemical, so there was a doctor who hid the secret of subspace inside her. She wants to learn some of the Liber Magnum disciplines to hunt down errant memories and find out what happened to her, and why the doctor singled her out to know this.

Cutey Scorpio

Cutey Scorpio

It was after the ninth frog she stung to death on her way across the river  that she realized she’d hit rock bottom. Jeremiah was, after all, a good friend of hers. So she started attending the meetings – Stingers Anonymous. She had to face all the rationalizations she used for stinging:

“Freud says that stinging is a natural reaction to the narcissistic cathexis…”

“Lemuel the Assassin God gave us Stingers for a reason, right?”

“It’s other animals — it’s their fault their blood is so weak. IT IS SICKENING THE WEAKNESS”

Finally, with the help of her rattlesnake sponsor, Cutey makes it through 30 Days of Stinglessness and gets her chip. She merrily sings as she walks through the forest, cluctching her precious and well-earned chip.

Then she gets to the river again. How will she get across? Immolette says “You’re a cute little scorpion.  You can ride on my back, but DON’T YOU STING ME.” Cutey Scorpio proudly brandishes her 30-Day Chip. “Of course not! I’m sober!” But in heart she knows that once you sting, you can always sting again if you’re not vigilant. They begin their journey. Cutey feels the heat of Immolette’s skin, reminding her of her old/ancestral desert home, and the stars, and the ticklish feel of the hairs on her mother’s claw, and all the things that make a scorpion a scorpion. Her tail tenses, stinger at the ready. She stares at the chip for a long, long time.

(note: recently my wife said, “You have to make a cute scorpion.” I wasn’t planning to do it as part of 30 Characters, but then I realized that the scorpion was trying to stay sober.)

2011 Day 07 --A Squeeb, from my Novel, "Mentor"

The Squeeb are a large (about two feet long not counting the tail) rodent-type creature that proliferates in the UnderCity. They are intelligent, loyal and  best of all, tameable as pets and hunters.

Note: I might post more about these creatures later. I’ve run out of time for today. Sorry.

#2 Bullseye

Bulseye is a WWII dog with the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. His stories are always told in flashbacks by a group of dogs in a old timers gentlemens club/retirement home for dogs!

Adopted by the squadron. He became part of the crew – distinctive for his ‘bullseye’ fur on his back.

He was dropped behind enemy lines and fought his Nazi counterpart!

Scope for some cheesy ‘Biggles’ style adventures!

Madame Cluck

Of course, she’s “sitting on” something she may or may not want to tell you about. It’s a question of whether she’s “hatching” anything of note.  Notably there for commentary about ongoings, still a good supporting character to the main plot – like a character actor to add ambiance to the ongoing story. Motherly, matronly – it’s all there.

#20 – Chicken Monkey

This banana-eating, egg-laying, cock-a-doodle-dooing beast is entertaining to have in the farmyard, but his silly antics generally end up costing Old MacDonald expensive equipment and important crops.
