The fourth member of Captain Fancypants’ crew, Yonkey just wants an easy life and that’s what he’s got aboard the Captain’s ship.  With all the rope he can swing on and a seemingly endless supply of junk food, all he has to worry about is the occasional bout of seasickness.
With his superior intellect he’s been able to repeatedly delay the revoloution, no point starting a pesky war when life’s so sweet.

Scowl serves as the lookout on the ship of the feared pirate, Captain Fancypants.
Although, being nocturnal, he fails to spot most things.

Herman Horn Poker

With his empty, maleable mind, it wasn’t long before Herman was recruited by Captain Fancypants. He was a perfect addition to the crew, loyal, obedient and strong enough to hauling around cannons, gunpowder, hostages or pretty much anything else the Capt desired.

Captain Fancypants

Bored of being caged up for tourists to gawp at, the alligator formerly known as “Snappy” mutineed against the zoo staff and escaped into the lake surrounding the island zoo.
There he hid patiently, planning a revolution and gradually gathering anything that might be useful for building his pirate vessel.  Luckily, the lake was in the middle of a huge theme park which provided a plentiful supply of swashbuckling merchendise that was often dropped into the water by careless children and littering man-babies.
But before he could launch his attack he needed a crew…

What happens to the food that you don’t finish?  It rises from the dead of course!  Shambling behind restaurants, struggling in bins and rising from the landfill, you’d better watch out…
…although luckily most food items don’t have the teeth and claws nesessary to escape a bin bag, let alone bite and spread the virus, but finish all your meals just to be safe kiddies.

Sprocket & Scratch

Long after the demise of Mankind, small mammals have taken over the Earth once again.  Unfortunately for Rodent kind, cats survived too.  Meet two participants in the violent war between felines and rodents.
Sprocket – Anti-social mechanical genius, tasked with the maintenance and programming of the Mekat fleet.  He’s also a rat.
Scratch – Mark II Lynx Mekat, an autonomous robotic feline programmed with the thought processes of a basset hound.  Ten times the strength, speed and agility of a biological cat but with the loyalty and intelligence of a hunting dog.

Most spirits take on the appearance of their living form when they pass over.  Unfortunately for this guy he was snuffed out by an axe blow to the cranium, resulting in a case of amnesia so severe it crossed over with him.  Because he can’t remember what he actually looked like, he’s now stuck with the default ghost body until his memory returns.

P.S.  Happy New Year!
