Fictional biography

Their story began as many stories do, with the desire to do good. As the machinations of the enemy forces and native population damaged the polar ice caps and the animal life associated with it, the call was put out amongst the ranks looking for volunteers to monitor the extreme north of their adopted world. Five were chosen amongst those who came forward, veterans one and all; Tusker the leader, grizzled but kind, his military records have long been classified but his actions speak to a long career on the front lines. Megazero the scout, quick witted and curious only truly happy while on the move, he takes great pride in knowing every square Inch of his territory. Tailclub the muscle, long considered the authority in close quarter combat amongst the warrior caste. Razorspike the tactician, perfectly content not moving for days at a time, his stoic nature belies his quick mind and willingness to act. Fangro the hunter, no bot escapes, as the most reclusive or the group choosing to protect the indigenous fife by any means necessary.
He's constantly trying to tell everyone how much of a bad-ass he is. He likes to tell people his motto is "You won't like me when I'm Fangry." Ask him about any major battle over the last million years, and he can tell you exactly what it was like and how his participation changed the battle. This is all a cover, to try and hide the fact that he is the biggest coward on either side of the war. Often seen hiding under fallen enemies during battles, pretending to be dead or injured. It's not that he is a bad 'bot, but he has a crosses-wire in his flight or fight circuit, which conveniently shuts-off when combined.

FansProject comics
