The Roll of Honour and Infamy (Dramatis Personae)
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:06:07 PM »
Classic-Era Dogs (some still around)

Durham Red
A female mutant ‘haematovore’ (vampire), possessing blood fuelled strength, endurance, and immortality. Worked with a number of other mutant bounty hunters over the years. Subject to obscure prophecies about a vital role in the future. Present whereabouts unknown.


Evans the Fist
Welsh mutant and former S/D agent, now ‘retired’ after his licence was revoked. Immensely powerful right arm, which grows directly from his head.


Frinton Fuzz [Deceased]
Son of Clacton Fuzz, a general of the first mutant uprising. Exceptionally hairy, obscuring his whole body. Killed in action while working with Durham Red. His younger brothers (twins) are newly fledged S/D agents.


The Gronk [Alien]
Pacifistic alien from Blas, in the Gallego system. Fur-covered, tentacles, conical humanoid. Long-time companion of Johnny Alpha, despite his ‘poor weak heartsies’ and utter lack of courage or combat skills. Skilled physician.


Johnny Alpha [Deceased]
Famous mutant bounty hunter and hero of the mutant underground army. Possessed x-ray vision from his glowing mutant eyes, and limited telepathic powers. Due to time travel and paradoxes, the exact circumstances of his life and death cannot be 100% determined. Most people agree he died saving mutants from Arcadia, during the Second Mutant War.


Jones the Voice
Welsh Mutant, still a Strontium dog despite showing little apparent talent for the job. His snout-like mouth can emit subsonic tones to induce headaches, nausea, and perhaps shatter fragile objects. Claims to have once been the boyfriend of Durham Red.


Lionel Death [Deceased?]
Unpleasant ‘living skeleton’ S/D agent, an expert in torture and interrogation. Died in an ‘friendly fire incident’ between his team and Durham Red/Johnny Alpha. Some recent stories suggest he may still alive… probably just rumours.


Middenface McNulty
Ageing, hard-talking, alcoholic Scottish mutant, long time Strontium Dog and former insurgent of the mutant army. Has fungus-like growths on his cranium. Recently lost an arm and had the stump augmented with a bionic replacement.


Precious Matson
Mutant journalist. Her mutation is that she has a third, centrally located breast. Which is not terrifically useful but is probably a conversation starter.


The Torso from Newcastle [Deceased]
Headless mutant resistance leader and former Strontium Dog. Killed bring down Nelson Kreeler during the Doghouse ‘civil war’ of 2182.


Vince Scampi
Bounty Hunter with a prawn-like crustacean head. Good with a gun, they say.


Wulf Sternhammer [Deceased]
Norm, actually a Viking from the year 793 AD, brought back to the present. Best friend and long-time partner/sidekick of Johnny Alpha. Famous for his strength, tolerance of mutants, and “happy stick” (a massive, two-handed hammer). Murdered by Max Bubba.

More Veteran Dogs - The Mentors

(for Jones the Voice, see above)

‘Dapper’ Gaston de Nez
Veteran bounty hunter and expert tracker, de Nez is known for both his olfactory skills and his suave, elegant style dress-sense. Has no mouth and thus cannot speak, only make nasal noises. Gaston knows a lot about alien flora and fauna. He was recently hit by a time weapon and lost 3 years of time.



Hans Oslo
Mercenary, ruthless and with a reputation as much for smuggling, extortion and blackmail as for bringing in warrants, Hans always has an eye on the main chance. By nefarious means he owns – through third parties and dummy companies) his own ship, the Centenary Hawk. He’s disliked by many other Dogs, and not just because of this dodgy reputation; he never fought in the Uprising or rebellions.



Lester “the Jester” Claypole [Deceased]
Lester is dead – an ignominious end for a long-serving Dog who survived the turbulent Uprising, Final Solution, and life on the rim> He was semi-retired to the Unclaimed Artefacts office, where he sorted through various alien junk dropped off by fellow Dogs. He rarely left the Doghouse, but did so with an apprentice for one last adventure. He did not return. The Frenchman drinks a lot – could be related.



The Lump
The Lump is relatively young but a competent bounty hunter and an all-round decent guy. Unfortunately, his shambolic mutation (a massive corral-like, cancerous mass swallowing his shoulders and head) means he’ll never be accepted by the norms. Lacking any peripheral vision and unable to turn his ‘head’, the Lump has been shot in the back three times by bounties.



Scab Jones
Born in the infamous Milton Keynes ghetto, Scab is a tough, no nonsense ‘street ronin’ familiar with the neon alleys and cheap motels of near-earth. Scab is the brother of mutant criminal, Impetigo Jones, who was killed by Jonny Alpha. When Jonny came looking for information on his brother, he was forced to shoot Scab and beat him within an inch of his life. Scab has hated Jonny ever since.

The Town with No Name...

Arissa Eastwood

Matriarch of the Eastwood Clan. Would-be ‘queen’ of the Town with No Name. Cool, calm and collected. Her family controls the rancher faction and the local gunsmith. Always accompanied by two creepy vat-grown goth children, genetically tweaked to be forever pre-pubescent (Caitlyn and Florian).

Wants proof that the Mifune Clan are a bunch of criminals. Has made it very clear she would never endorse criminal violence, even though if someone happened to murder them all it would serve her purposes quite nicely.

Eli Mifune

Bombastic leader of the Mifune Clan, would be ‘king’ of the Town with No Name. His family controls the terraforming plant and local saloon, and its rumoured also Foo Lyn’s bordello and the local church. Intense, verbose firebrand ‘man of the people’ who says he’s the only honest man in town. Revels in cheap and dirty entertainmants he provides for workers of his terraforming plant.

The Gunsmith
Alien metalworker, gunsmith and swordsmith. Part of the Eastwood faction, although apparently an alien.

Foo Lyn
Charming, if slightly stoned or drunk madam of the Dollhouse, the local company-run robot bordello.

Kletus and Brandine Kusanagi
Local ranchers and parishioners of the church (Neo-Gaia), despite this they are fervently anti-mutant. 

Joe Coldblood
A gekh gunfighter with a precision blaster, works for the Eastwood Clan.

Padre Box / BLESS-4-U

Old, rather out-of-date robot preacher programmed to administer all major earth religions (Pan-Gaia, Mother Hubbardism, Jedi (but not prequelist Jedism), Jokerist, Presberlutheranist Crystal Dragon Jesus). Slightly odd but sometimes old robots just get that way... Runs line dancing classes twice a week. Warns people that the Eastwoods are low-down, mean hombres. Also doubles as the local surgeon.
 
Zhi-Zhi Cartwright
Local goodtime girl looking to get out of town before its consumed by violence from within or without, even if that means bumping uglies with a mutie.

Tequila City Rent-a-Cops

Corporate security forces in Tequila City focus on keeping the city-continent's supply of booze flowing for their corporate masters - with a healthy dose of corruption on the side. Nevertheless, there are a few good eggs... are these two some of them?

Fly Eyes Wagner [Deceased???]
Traitorous former Stront. Justly executed by Jonny Alpha.



Fly's-Eye's Wagner was a bounty hunter who killed his partner, Lips Rainsmith and went rogue, so Johnny Alpha, Wulf Sternhammer and the Gronk were sent to hunt him down and terminate him. They tracked him down to his home town, Sharpsville, where he was attempting to kill his father, whom he blamed for his mutation.

Fly's-Eyes escaped through a dimension warp, and his three pursuers jumped after him. They all ended up in a dimension strongly resembling Hell. Johnny shot Fly's-Eyes, but (like anything that died in that dimension) he immediately came back to life again. When the group obtained a ticket out of the Hell-world Johnny used it to send Fly's-Eyes back to Earth, to the office of the Galactic Crime Commission. His last recorded words were, "Kill me — I don't care! I'd rather be dead than where Johnny Alpha is now!" (To which the commissioners' response was presumably, "Okay.")
