The Bare Necessities



Powers/Abilities:

Kronk is incredibly athletic, more so than should be possible for a normal human without magical assistance. His shoulder angel and devil also seem to rarely be able to provide him with information that he shouldn't logically be able to have access to. Whether this is indicates that they may actually be real, or if it might just be a (possibly schizophrenic) shot in the dark remains to be seen.

Strengths:

As stated above, Kronk is very strong, and highly resistant to damage. It also seems that most things simply fail to phase him, regardless of how weird they are. Kronk is also an amazing chef, with a wonderful recipe for spinach puffs, a world class jump rope champ, fluent in several languages, including Squirrelese, and possessing the survival skills of a veteran squirrel scout. Finally, while he may not have much true combat experience, he did do some wrestling in high school.

Weaknesses:

Kronk isn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree. Notable offenses being making his own theme music while trying to avoid detection, being quick to assume that any comment is about the subject he's currently on, and the occasional inability to distinguish people's voices from one another, even when they sound nothing alike. On another note, he's rather easily roped into things, and a little too helpful for his own good. Then there's his loyalty to Yzma. While he initially followed her because it was his job, he still hasn't quit even when her orders oftentimes conflict with his sense of right and wrong. The thing that has kept Kronk sticking by her regardless, is his realization that he's the closest thing she has to a friend.

Also, Kronk's weak ankles prevent him from being very good at interpretive dance, despite two semesters worth of lessons.

Fears:

The only thing Kronk really fears is disapproval.

Quirks:

Kronk, when faced with a moral choice that requires some thought, has an odd habit of speaking with his shoulder angel and devil. This is odd because he not only sees them appear before his eyes, but also talks to them out loud. Whether they are actually there, but remain invisible to everyone but he, or he is just more unhinged than one would gather from an ordinary conversation with him, or some combination thereof, is currently unclear.

Deeper into the Rabbit Hole

Goals:

Kronk's current goals are whatever he's ordered to do, but someday he'd like to find a nice girl, fall in love, and settle down. He hasn't quite realized yet that the world that he's helping to create will have no room for such dreams.

Significant Relationships

While Kronk has made some friends across the course of his life, he doesn't currently spend much time with most of those people, as circumstance prevents it.

He hasn't seen his father in several years, both because the man never seemed to be terribly proud of Kronk's talents and interests, and because Kronk now no longer lives within a reasonable distance of the village he grew up in. For the latter reason, he rarely sees any of the friends he made growing up.

Even so, being the nice guy he is, he's managed to make friends with several of the palace guards, despite the severe attitude they are made to adopt. While it is rare that both he and they have time away from work that isn't occupied by sleeping or other such necessary things, they still try to have lunch together on occasion.

The person that Kronk has recently spent the most time with, as one might expect with his job description, is Yzma. While he realizes that the woman is clearly unhinged, and that's coming from someone who's not only not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but also talks to tiny versions of himself dressed up in little costumes to make moral decisions, and her motives can at times be very questionable, he can't help but feel sorry for her. The only living person she seems to have known longer than him is the emperor, and he didn't hesitate to fire her on a whim. Whether she realizes this or not, Kronk believes, from what he's seen, that he is the closest thing she has to a friend.

Family

Kronk's only remaining family is his father, assuming of course that he's still alive. Kronk hasn't heard from him in quite a while, but he believes that he is.

Personality:

Kronk is a loyal, kind, ad helpful young man, if rather naive and childlike in some respects, in addition to just plain being foolish sometimes. A rather blunt person, nuances and niceties are often completely lost on him, and any attempt to be subtle them on his part, while at first seeming successful, will then be elaborated upon for the purpose of clarification, which of course ends up making his attempts at saying things inconspicuously... well, rather conspicuous. In a similar vein, he is rather terrible at lying, though others strangely tend not to notice this most times, realizing that he isn't telling the truth only when relevant to the plot at the oddest times that seemingly are no more obvious than usual.

History:

Kronk's past before he began working for Yzma is largely unremarkable. The primary points of interest being his two semesters of Miss Nalca's interpretive dance, his time in the squirrel scouts, and his early interest in cooking, though at that point it was mainly baking. His father approved only of the second of these, and even then not that much, at least that's what Kronk has managed to gather. He also did some wrestling in high school. After he began working with Yzma however, Kronk's life took a turn for the peculiar. He was first a mad science assistant, then a conspirator, then an assassin, a... actually, he doesn't quite know what his role was as Yzma's assistant when she ruled the empire the first time, a mode of transportation doubling as a translator and traveling companion perhaps? Finally, he had been a temporary turncoat when Yzna had insulted his spinach puffs. He did however, once the matter was resolved, manage to work out a deal with Kuzco so that Yzma, now a cat, was neither executed, nor imprisoned. Instead, she aided him in teaching a new troop of squirrel scouts.

However, it would seem that was not to last as, with the magic of Maleficent, Yzma regained her human form and, with an army of demons, retook the empire, this time far less subtly than the previous one. Surprisingly, the old woman had neither Kronk, nor the fat man, nor even Kuzco killed, instead imprisoning Kuzco, leaving Pacha where he was, Kronk got the sneaking suspicion that she'd forgotten about him entirely, and, most surprisingly of all, gave Kronk back his old job as her assistant. Recently, Yzma has been made aware, likely by Maleficent, of a group of rebels, and she has sent him to be a spy. Kronk already has reservations about this mission, but has, for the moment, complied.

Maleficent

Within the deep, twisted abyss of a broken world, Maleficent, Empress of all Evil, was seated majestically upon her throne. Around her were the misty visages of her fellow Coalition members, magical avatars that projected the images of her followers. It was a communications system set up via a combination of her own dark magic and Jafar's powers as a djinn, a way for her and the rest of the Coalition to converse and meet up, without having to leave the safety and comfort of their own individual domains.

"This Council will come to order." Maleficent's measured voice announced, bringing the attention of the other villains to her. The demonic witch inclined her head to the former Prince of the Southern Isles, as she continued on. "First order of business, an update on the continued conquest of all of Creation. King Hans, you are first."

"Of course, my dark Empress." Hans gave her what she assumed to be a rather charming smile, though it did little to affect her. "Arendale and the surrounding kingdoms are all under m--our control, and wiping out any dissidents has proven very affective. The demon army has now reached the borders of Mother Gothel's territory, and with that, they are heading south now, to begin the conquest of the Desert Tribal fiefdoms."

Maleficent took in what he said, nodding her head once. She knew all this already, of course, but these meetings served more purpose than just a pure debriefing and share of knowledge. The Eternal Empress was always curious if any of her servants would leave anything out of their reports, or if they might otherwise hold back information. It was a good way to indicate which lesser members of the Coalition she should keep an eye on.

"Good, very good. And you, Hades?" Maleficent turned her gaze to her 'partner' and co-founder of the Coalition, eying him with great curiosity. "How go our efforts toward discovering a way toward weakening, and eventually killing, the other Greek pantheons?"

This much she knew already as well, but it wouldn't do, to ignore such an...important member of her Coalition. Even if she did find the God of the Underworld grating at times, he was still a very useful ally, and quite the powerful 'partner'. It would be in her best interests to placate him as much as possible before his inevitable betrayal.

And betray him, he would. They all would, given the chance. Maleficent was not so foolish as to believe that an organization founded by petty and power-hungry titans would last long, before it fell to infighting. Still, the Coalition was serving its purpose quite nicely, and more importantly, she was more than confident she could take out any of the people here, if they sought to overthrow her.

Well...mostly everyone here, at any rate. Hades was the one man in this Coalition who Maleficent felt she could rightfully be wary of. He was a god, immortal, and very, very powerful. And, much to her distaste, he wasn't under her control at all, unlike the equally threatening but 'loyal' djinn Jafar.

Still, the Coalition would hold, for the time being. They were still united in common goal, and it would take quite some time before the eventual splintering began. And Maleficent would take advantage of this fragile peace, while it lasted.

The Gatekeeper

In a dimension that existed outside of regular space and time, The Gatekeeper, protector of the vast Multiverse, waited. He waited for the perfect opportunity to enact his desperate, one last plan to save the entirety of the Multiverse from being overrun by the Coalition of Evil.

Three months had passed for him since Maleficent's initial incursion, and things were not getting any better. Heroes great and power, from across the universes, had fallen one by one against her Coalition, leaving entire worlds defenseless and ripe for conquest.

But that would end here, for good. The Heroes of the lands may have been slain, but all hope was not yet lost. There were many people, many brave and righteous souls, who could take the places of their fallen comrades, and push back the tide of evil that was threatening to swallow all of Creation.

And here, today, he would assemble them, and begin the eventual downfall of the Coalition.

"Genie." the Gatekeeper turned his attention to the blue-skinned djinn, his most useful and helpful ally in these dark times. "It is time. Bring forth the Champions to this Realm, so that we may begin."
