Fictional biography

The leader of the deceptive constructs was left for dead, drifting in space. The planet eating Unicorn crossed his path and belches glitter on his damaged body. The glitter rebuilt the leader into his new galvanized form, leaving only a few parts behind. He was sent to the metal planet of the automated robots. Unicorn later followed, firing his digestive gas-fueled rear thrusters. The resulting rainbow hit the leftover glitter parts and had a result even Unicorn did not expect. This is how Mega-Gun was born. He now seeks the one who created him from spare parts, and the jet who set it all into motion. Together, the three will rule the galaxy.
