Bio: Spyke was born a few years before the Lylat wars began on Titania. At this time Titania had many inhabitants living in villages spread all over the planet. His father was the general of the military for his village, his mother was a bat bounty hunter who was hired to kill Spyke’s father but fell in love instead. Spyke was the only one of his kind born with Bat wings because his mother was the only bat living on Titania. Now at this time his name was Ryszard Strom, and on his fourth birthday is when his life went to hell. Ryszard was with his father and mother wishing him a happy birthday, when suddenly gunshots were heard. Corneria had discovered Titania and the Cornerians were trying to kill the Titanians. Just as Ryszard’s parents told him to hide, they were both mowed down by heavy machinegun fire. His mother’s dying words were for him to hide, so he ran into the nearest home and hid as best as he could. He sat in his hiding place for 12 hours before emerging from the home only to find that his village was nothing but a smoking, bloody ruin of homes and burning bodies. Ryszard ran over to his parent’s bodies only to find that his mother was brutally mutilated, but his father was just about to cross over. Ryszard knelt next to his father and listened to his father’s dying words, which were “Avenge us!” Just before passing, his father gave him his Broadsword and his mother’s Katana, throwing spikes and twin daggers. From that day on Ryszard was left to wander Titania alone in search of these “Cornerians”. On his tenth birthday is when he discovered a Cornerian military outpost and before he knew what he was doing, he rubbed his eyes to see that he had just slaughtered everyone in the base, from that moment on Ryszard Strom was now dead and in his place was a wolf named Spyke. Before he left however, Spyke’s sociopath childhood friend Ripper had just caught up with him (apparently Ripper had been following Spyke) and FROM THAT day Spyke vowed that Corneria and every Cornerian be destroyed. Four years later Spyke and with….some of Ripper’s help formed the Titanian resistance group known as The Company of Strays. To this day The C.O.S has recruited over ten thousand wolves to their cause. On a side note their base can be found deep within the mountains of Titania.

Bio: Kane’s childhood wasn’t very pleasant. When he was born, both of his parents were drunk and his mom was only 19 while his dad was 22. Every day of Kane's life, his parents would constantly beat on him, if they were angry about something they would take it out on him; if they were sad they would take it out on him, even when they were happy they would beat on him. At the age of ten Kane ran away from home after his parents told him that he was a mistake and that they never wanted a child, he ran all the way to the Cornerian military base to speak with General Pepper about his situation, but when he told Pepper about it he didn’t believe Kane. Instead of helping Kane, Pepper called his parents to come and pick him up. From that point on Kane despised the Cornerian government, but after his eleventh birthday he started to hear voices in his head telling him to kill his parents, of course Kane didn’t listen to them. But when his 16th birthday came, his parents were drunk and high, his dad took out a knife and started to assault Kane. His father slashed at him until finally without realizing it the knife got stuck in Kane’s right eye. At this moment Kane lost control, he pulled the knife out along with his right eyeball, took hold of the knife and mutilated his parents. After seeing what he had done, he quickly hijacked a cargo ship headed for Fortuna. For three years Kane lived on Fortuna working as a bounty hunter and even became the most feared bounty hunter, seeing as how he killed all the other feared bounty hunters. At the age of 23 Kane was hired to take out a Titanian resistance leader named Spyke. But when Kane got to Titania, Spyke was waiting for him. Kane asked what the resistance group was against and when Spyke said Corneria, Kane threw away his contract and joined The Company of Strays and became their reconnaissance, assassination, hacking and technology specialist. But even to this day he can hear those voices in his head.

Clothing: Heavy Duty desert camo pants and Heavy Duty metal combat boots
Skills/Abilities: Really strong, Expert at using any form of Heavy Weapons, Can breathe in space, Able to survive MASSIVE falls or somewhat big explosions and can catch arty shells or missiles in mid-air
Bio: Everyone in the C.O.S. has some kind of scar whether it is emotional or physical. But if there is one wolf who has the worst physical scar it would be Arson. A few years before Arson met Spyke, he was a very well respected Cornerian Spec. Ops operative. Everyone loved him except for one of his superiors, this guy hated the fact that Arson was getting way more attention than he was. So one day Arson was assigned a solo mission, all he was told was that he would be dropped into an enemy minefield on Venom and that he would have to disable the mines and the AA guns. Now what they should’ve told him was that he would be dropped into a ditch filled with mines bearing the Cornerian military insignia. After Arson impacted the mines a Cornerian search party found him…or what was left of him. Somehow all that survived was his back and two of his organs (which were his heart and brain) and they took Arson’s remains back to a Corenrian hospital. Numerous scientists and doctors helped to rebuild Arson out of machinery and warship armor, they rebuilt his bones out of some form of nanites and when they finished, they put some form of prototype holographic technology in him so that it looked like he still had fur. Three years later, Arson awoke in the hospital bed not remembering what happened, until his family came into see him but were disgusted by the way he looked and ran out of the hospital. This hurt arson even more because he was trying to remember who they were. Two days later his superiors came in and told him what had happened. Arson, outraged by what he was hearing ended up headlining a Cornerian news broadcast where he caused the hospital he was in to become engulfed by flames. Before Arson left Corneria though he broke into an armory and stole two dual wieldable flamethrowers, he then hijacked a cargo ship and had it crash land on Titania. After emerging from the wreckage, Arson saw, what looked to be a cross between a bat and a wolf standing before him. The Bat-Wolf called himself Spyke and asked what Arson’s business was on Titania and after Arson told Spyke everything that had happened, Spyke asked him if he would like to join the Company of Strays. Arson agreed and from that day forth he became the Heavy Weapons specialist of the Company of Strays.

Battle tactics/strategies: The C.O.S. tend to use a mixture of battle tactics which include Greek, Samurai, Guerrilla warfare, American Civil War, etc...
Background Info: The Company of Strays was formed by Spyke when he was ten. At that time the only people in the C.O.S. were Ripper and himself. About 4 days later, Spyke and Ripper came across a vast amount of mountains, but the thing that Spyke found to be amazing about these mountains was that they were formed like a massive wall and then in one spot they bent into a “U” shape. After Spyke and Ripper inspected the mountains they found numerous caves within them. They both spent about 2 years living in those caves. Spyke realized that just sitting around wouldn’t help them achieve anything, so him and Ripper went out and found another Cornerian military outpost but as Spyke looked closer he could see a massive holding cell filled with other Titanians and what looked to be some sort of wolf with Ghostly white fur and a rag over its eyes. By midday everyone in the outpost was dead, Spyke then freed the Titanian prisoners and the white wolf. Spyke then asked everyone there if they wanted to join his still growing resistance group. As the years went by more and more Cornerian outposts were destroyed and a deadly bounty hunter eventually got wind of the news of these attacks and was hired to take out the one causing them. Though instead of killing Spyke the bounty hunter now known as Kane joined them. Spyke asked Kane to send out a signal that would attract more and more wolves to their cause. So, as the years went by more and more wolves began coming to Titania to join them. Of course every now then someone would come forward and ask why they were following orders from someone younger than them, those wolves usually never spoke again.
