This is Dennijshe Beiklaushett; for the sake of saving their tongues (and their brains) everyone just calls him Regal. In his past life he was Leo, KING of the SOLAR SYSTEM!
He’s not from around here. He’s actually a psychic prince hailing from the Forest of No Return where the Changlings (shapeshifters) live. He’d been having some pretty awesome dreams about life in the SOLAR SYSTEM, for awhile, until one day his former self came to him in a vision, and told him how to get it all back: gather the reincarnations of the other 11 Zodiac signs, and participate in some menial tasks (finding some stones or something).
Motivated for the first time in his life, he left home with nothing more than the clothes on his back, and a few handy guidebooks on the world outside. Almost right away he chanced upon Trigger, the reincarnation of Aries, and they’ve been slowly gathering members ever since. By now, most of the Zodiac has been gathered, and live together in a group house courtesy of Capricorn.
Lately, he’s been really happy that the Gemini twins (called Zipher and Umbrix) have been nice enough to help him adapt to the world outside his forest.
He doesn’t speak English all that well yet, so, for the sake of eloquence (or any other reason), he is prone to slipping back into his native tongue. All conversations in non-English here on in will be designated with these sweet little carrots < >.
This is Riland Taranto, but it’s probably best if you call him Trigger (or he’ll ‘knock your lights out’). In his past life, he was Aries, and ruled over the planet Mars.
Nowadays he’s mostly interested in being a PINNACLE of MANLINESS. No one’s entirely sure if he’s succeeding.
He stumbled upon Regal while in the midst of dealing in some SHADY AFFAIRS, and after realizing the two of them were having the same trippy Zodiac dreams, decided to tag along on the Changeling’s stupid quest thing, fully intending on DOMINATING the SOLAR SYSTEM once his former glory had been returned to him.
His best friend in the whole world is Harriet, pictured here with him.
This is Zipher (left) and Umbrix (right). In their previous lives, they were collectively known as The Gemini, and co-co-ruled over Mercury with Virgo.
They met Regal not long after he ventured into the MODERN WORLD, and likely would have joined up with him even if they hadn’t all been sharing the same DREAMS.
They seem to be up to their necks in ILLICIT ACTIVITIES (and enjoying every minute of it), but they’ve been very helpful to Regal (so far). None of the other Zodiac members can stand them.
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 1
Regal: This world so strange. Never will get used to it.
Umbrix: Nah, believe me, it can be done! You just gotta hang out with the right crowds Regal.
Zipher: And luckily for you, we happen to be just the crowd to hang out with.
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 2
Trigger: If your goal’s to become conniving thieves…
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 3
Umbrix: Well then, how ‘bout for today’s mission, we take you to FAST FOOD?
Regal: This world keeps rabbits too?
Zipher: You’ll see. Heheh.
Regal: Will you come too Aries?
Trigger: How many times do I have to fuckin’ tell you? It’s TRIGGER!
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 4
Trigger: (If I leave him alone with those twins from Hell, who knows to what means their fucked-up little minds will use him. Not that I’d ordinarily care, but those assholes already bested me once, and NO ONE bests me without SEVERE consequences!)
Trigger: Yeah sure, I’ll go on your little “mission” with you.
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 5
Regal: So there rabbits here?
Zipher: Sure …
Trigger: No! Did I not very specifically tell your stupid ass what this trip would entail?! (‘Cuz who knows what these little bastards would try to pass off on him if he didn’t know. Naive dumbass.)
Zipher: Anyway, we’re here, so it’s time for you to see one of the staples of modern living - that is -C’Burgers. Trigger, if you’ll do the honors of ordering first?
Trigger: Yeah, yeah.
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 6
Clerk: Welcome to C’Burgers! How may I help you?
Trigger: Yeah, I’ll have a - uh - number 5, but large sized, and three hamburgers on the side. And oh yeah, no ONIONS! God help you if there’s ONIONS on any of my BURGERS!!
Clerk: All right, you’re total comes to $12.79. Thank you very much. You’re order will be up shortly.
Zipher: Easy, right?
Umbrix: You wanna try?
ADAPTING TO SOCIETY - Part 7
Regal: I can have - um - <five> - um. Do you have rabbits?
Clerk: Excuse me?
Regal: Maybe I want what Trigger had. Okay?
Clerk: A large size Greasy Bumbleburger meal with the three hamburgers?
Regal: Why do you ask me?
Clerk: Er, just double checking. Is this what you want?
Regal: I want rabbits.
Trigger: Yes that’s what he wants!
Clerk: All right. $12.79 is your total.
Trigger: Now pay the lady.
