STORY: Hugo was originally fashioned with the countenance of a Cat. He has never felt it suited him. In fact he has always been happier following the life of a Rabbit. He eventually discovered a network of secret underground clubs populated by likeminded souls who also felt erroneously equipped. Here he could indulge in his Rabbit fantasies without ridicule. Sadly he cannot afford to undertake the alteration work himself, so has applied to the City Hall for a grant to cover the engineering. To prove he is serious in his intent he must live openly as a rabbit for a year. “Too many ears!” people whisper unsympathetically behind his back.

STORY: Although appointed leader of the Herringbone wildlife research expedition the Colonel doesn’t really have a proper grasp on their intent. Drafted in from the army to provide experience and knowledge in the fields of remote and difficult travel across uncharted terrain. Adept at handling fire-arms with his prehensile moustache, he unfortunately cannot resist the urge to take occasional pot shots at the wild-life. Especially sad when it is some of the rarer fauna. “Well there wont be many chances to bag one of these buggers soon”! is his justification.
