this is an idea i created a while ago and first posted on my Deviantart Account. It's an alternative universe of Dungeon Boss i created myself, and has the non-humanoid beasts featured as humans. You'll understand when you read it.
i draw inspiration from the wiki and in-game info for this Alternative Universe as well as the Normal Universe of Dungeon Boss as i see it, which includes stories like the Chronicles of Phemus, based around him and his quest to free the cyclops lands of Creon and to avenge his father and friends. please tell me what you think of it, and feedback and tips are always welcome.
other character's roles will be uploaded separately. Suggestions are welcome too
The Fire Beasts
-Pignius Maximus: Pignius is pretty much a criminal, who has a serious number of armed robberies on his name, together with various charges of Aggressivety. He is the leader of the Fire Beasts, and certainly behaves like it. Despite that, he cares about Lupina, Torchy and Mangle Jaw like a fathers, similar to normal pigs, and likes to do some recreating with them whenever he can (his most favorite thing to do is making a bonfire and BBQ'ing). He wears a red, sleeveless shirt with makeshift pauldrons, a belt with a skull-shaped buckle, leather pants with some spikes and often a motor helmet with horns put on them. He is sensitive regarding jokes involving bacon.
-Lupina: Lupina is a nice and a bit edgy teenage anthro wolf of the element of fire. She likes looking at and howling to the moon, grilled food, and often wants to barbecue with Torchy, Mangle Jaw and Pignius. She is pretty friendly, albeit introverted, and tends to hang around the alleys near the Flaming Den where they live. She looks up to Mangle Jaw like a brother, and always tries to cheer others when they are sad, together with the others. She knows what Mangle has been through in his life, and is very careful around that fact. Sometimes she behaves (a bit) like a punk, or a vandal, she likes rock music (mostly industrial rock) and pagan music, and having fun. She wears a red shirt with medium sleeves, a black leather jacket, a flanel skirt with classic lumberjack vest pattern, leather boots, and has bandages around her lower legs and her hands.
-Mangle Jaw: Mangle Jaw likes meat and speed, and his friends a LOT. He had a rough past, and wants nothing as badly as taking down the man who killed off his pack and left him to die at the foot of a volcano. He is very strong, especially his jaws, head and legs, which make up for his weak arms, and takes great care of his teeth and vitality. Despite his past, he is very open, social and friendly, and often takes care of the grilling together with Lupina when they are having a BBQ. He also likes to train his agility with Torchy, and takes lessons in leadership from Pignius Maximus. He has his periods when he can go berserk or become very sad, but always gets cheered up again by his comrades.
He wears a bit oversized black, short-sleeve shirt featuring a burning skull, old jeans with a chain on the side and black shoes.
-Torchy: the biggest prankster and vandal of the gang. He pretty often pulls pranks on his friends (especially Pignius) which drives them pretty insane, and can often go overboard with them (for example, when he installed a mechanism in the Living area designed to drop a lot of buckets with cold water after someone walks over a tripwire. Lupine was pretty mad for the rest of the week). However, he is pretty social and athletic, and likes to freerun and fly around whenever. He has agreed to train his fellow Beasts with agility and speed (Mangle Jaw being the best pupil yet). He is also the best pupil in inspiring his friends and raising their morale when in battle. He wears a black shirt featuring a bat head, a long coat similar to Mangus's from Brütal Legend, ragged pants, and black with red shoes.
-Bovus el Doro: he is the leader of the group of Nature Beasts group known as Greenbeasts, which he started up himself. He is a very social, smart and protective person, always ready to stand up for his loved ones. He has average knowledge about healing herbs, capable of making field dressings on the spot to heal himself and his allies. He is (head)strong, wise, and stubborn, which has got him into trouble a good few times. He isn't on the best terms with the Fire Beasts, together with Jabber and Julius (and the other way around, mostly) but as long as Leonidus is in charge of all the beasts, both groups will tolerate each other. of course, there are some small conflicts here and there, but they do not pose a great threat. When the need rises, however, both groups will work together as best as they can and try to reach their shared goal. Bovus wears metal arm bands, spiked horn caps, ragged pants with knee plates, and two makeshift pauldrons. Like Pignius, his weapon is an axe.
-Jabber Clenchjaw: Jabber is, albeit a bit of a silly sauce, pretty feral, and becomes more and more feral with each night closer to Full Moon. He joined the Greenbeasts in hope of gathering friends to help him look for his brother, similar to Julius who was searching for help to find the love of his life. Jabber is pretty friendly to his friends, but cautious towards Fire Beasts (although he can relate to Lupina) and outsiders, and is especially cautious when any dwarves are near. He likes to go on food hunts and gnawing on bones, like most lupines and canines, and often trains furiously on a dwarf-like training dummy, which has made him able to deal more critical blows to the enemy. Jabber wears a black and green beanie, a black and green fur vest, black pants and a pair of sandals.
-Julius: Julius has joined the Greenbeasts because of a similar goal to jabber, as stated before. He is pretty smart, athletic and strong, though not the fastest, and never goes anywhere without his mysterious barrel. He serves as the spy of the Greenbeasts, providing info wherever he can find it. He is stubborn and quite easily triggered, at least when you say and do the wrong things. Despite that, he's pretty nice, and likes to train himself together with Bovus, and makes dinner whenever he gets the chance. he's quite artistic at making salads! Julius seems to have a grudge against Kai Makani, and isn't on the best terms with Commisioner William either. He has high respects for nature, his friends and the mighty Leonidus, though. Julius wears the same attire as in the game, albeit with a red sleeveless shirt and long pants instead of a loincloth.
Leonidus: Leonidus is the neutral force between both Beast groups and serves as Peacekeeper and judicator, trying to resolve all conflicts in a fast and good manner. He is calm, friendly, serious, has a high sense of justice and a smile is rarely seen on his face. He has no time to socially bond with others due to his eternal task of bringing justice and order into the world, similar to Alexandros. He is the most powerful beast of them all, has unbreakable teeth and paws, and is blessed with the light. Leonidus always burns the bodies of his enemies so that they will not return in any way, is capable of healing self to the max and buffing himself, and always centers the attention of enemies towards himself. He is also capable of flight, although he is rarely seen doing so. The only persons he really has a friendly relationship with, are Augustus and possibly Alexandros. Leonidus wears a long grey coat with gold patterns, an old grey shirt, grey pants, and grey with yellow shoes. As an anthro, he also has a big golden beard and long golden hair.
FACT: Leonidus is secretly awesome in breakdancing.
