“Are you sure this is a good idea Kronos?” Ghi-Darah asked as the warlord began hooking the matrix to Twiggawatt.
Kronos replied, “Of course it is, we need a way to power the matrix, and Twiggawatt is a living dynamo.” He clipped the cables to Twiggawatt’s horns. “He can provide the power; we just have to control it.”
Ghi-Darah shook his heads in annoyance, “The problem isn’t just the power you fool!” He growled, “Unless you understand the exact nature of warp space and can do the complex calculations required for a precision jump we’re no closer to our destination than before!” He flapped up next to Kronos, leaned in and whispered, “And why are we going in the first place? Saving those humans does nothing to stop the Kiliaak.”
“It doesn’t,” Kronos responded, “But it will help us gain Twiggawatt’s trust. We can use him to help us bring them down”
Ghi-Darah flapped away and sulked, angrily muttering to himself. Kronos rolled his eyes and finished his work. “Alright, everyone gather around Twiggawatt. We’ll be leaving soon.” As they all clustered together Kronos finished punching in the coordinates for the city being attacked. “Is everybody ready?” he asked, “I’ve finished entering the coordinates, activating the matrix…Now!”
Twiggawatt’s eyes flashed and electricity coursed through the matrix, and the group disappeared in a red flash.
It was nothing like the other times he had been teleported. The other times it had been instant and painless. This time it felt as if he had been torn apart into tiny pieces, and then sewn back together with a burning needle. When he emerged from warp space he realized he was miles high, and then he plummeted. He lay on the ground in a crumpled heap, and groaned in pain, “I hope Ghi-Darah didn’t survive the trip, otherwise I’ll never hear the end of this.” Suddenly he heard a piercing sound, like an earth bird. Oh right, he thought, the monster. He looked around for the tell tale flash of another teleportation, but saw nothing. Of course I’d be the only one to land anywhere near the cursed thing. In the city he saw the monster looking at him. Poisonous slime poured out of oozing sores all over the monster, and it wore a pained expression. It picked its way through the city and started stepping towards Kronos with a curious look in its eye. Kronos picked himself off of the ground and sparked his gauntlets in challenge. The monster squawked in alarm and leapt backwards. Kronos fired a bolt of lightning towards the creature, and it screeched in pain before fleeing into the city.
“Oh no you don’t,” Kronos growled, and he gave chase. It wasn’t hard to follow the monster; it left a trail of corroded buildings that crumbled when Kronos brushed against them. He rounded another corner, and suddenly the trail was cold. No signs of corrosion, no shattered buildings, Kronos thought, but why is there so much loose dirt? The earth shook for a moment, and then the monster sprang out at Kronos. It caught him by surprise, and slashed at his chest with its claws. Kronos’ years of experience kept him from panicking, and he ignored the pain long enough to sock it in the face, stunning the creature long enough for him to wrap his arm around its neck. When he tightened his grip around the monster several of the pustules burst, leaking acid all over Kronos. He cried out in pain and dropped the limp monster to the ground. He frantically wiped the acid off on the sand. Angrily he turned to the unconscious monster. He stepped up next to it and raised his foot over its head, “Die you disgusting creature.”
A loud bellow stayed his blow, and the familiar sound of thundering hoof beats filled the air. Twiggawatt plowed through the remnants of the city and snorted angrily at Kronos, “No death,” He said, “Do not destroy.”
Kronos looked at Twiggawatt in disbelief, “Twiggawatt we came to stop this thing!”
“You did,” Twiggawatt replied, “You stopped.” He trotted over and nudged Kronos away from the monster. “Don’t destroy.”
Kronos looked down at the monster in disbelief. “Twiggawatt this thing is a killer,” he struggled to dumb it down for the infant titan, “It destroys life!”
“Teach it, like the humans,” Twiggawatt said slowly, “Teach to be better.”
Kronos shook his head, “No Twiggawatt, it’s beneath us. You are a titan! This thing is insignificant compared to you, it is better to just let it die.”
A spark appeared in Twiggawatt’s eye, and he smiled at Kronos, “I am better, but that is why I have to help, make it better too.”
He leaned down and nuzzled the monster. His eyes began to glow and the creature slowly rose to its feet. It looked up at Twiggawatt and clicked curiously. It cocked its head and started nuzzling against his side. Twiggawatt looked down at it with a confused expression on his face.
“Looks like it likes you Twiggawatt,” Kronos said.
“She,” Twiggawatt said, “She thinks I’m someone else…”
Kronos stopped and addressed the monster, “So it’s a she? She can think?”
The monster squawked angrily at Kronos and leapt on Twiggawatt’s back. It curled up in a ball on his back and eyed Kronos with suspicion.
“She does not like you.” Twiggawatt said, “I am sorry.”
Kronos waved his hand dismissively, “I’m sure my broken heart will mend.” He stopped and looked around, “Hold on, if you made it here, than where are the others?”

BIO: Kharrion is a rather recent anomaly in the kaiju world. she came into existence when the radioactive mass left over after Hedorah was killed came into contact with a fossil of a Therizinosaurus, a somewhat avian dinosaur known for having scythe like claws. with the massive mana energy and radioactive ooze acting as a catalyst, the fossil mutated into a new organism alltogether. Life will always find a way. The resulting kaiju is in constant pain and shock, not only from being reborn, but from the poisonous ooze that still courses through her veins. This corrosive material is just as harmful to herself as it is to her victims. however, the mana energy that birthed Kharrion gave her sufficient regenerative abilities to heal her body as the acid corrodes it. In combat, Kharrie's size is both help and hinderence. being so small, she is quick and agile, manuvering to dodge blows and attack quickly. however, since she is so small, she is much weaker physically than many opposing kaiju. if a fight turns to brute strength, she will be at a massive disadvantage. when attacking, Kharrie will slash with her claws, and attack with her barbed tail. each of the spines running along her body are filled to the brim with poison, each ending with a hole like a syringe's needle, ready to "inject" the poison into whatever she impales. In some situations, Kharrie has been seen to use her large sharp beak, either as a bite, or by forcefully bringing her head downward like an executioner's axe. limited burrowing abilities.
Ah, so this is that vulture thing we saw in the preview! sort of half Therizinosaurus, half vulture, all ugly! Lots of people were wondering about her, weren't they? Anyway, this is Kharrion, or Kharrie, if you prefer. the poor girl has a pretty rough life, acid eating her flesh even as it heals itself and all (kinda like deadpool! except with more corrosive acid). she's just another member of Kronos' merry band of mutants ain't she? an important note is that she is very small, by kaiju standards. the top of her head barely comes up to Kronos' chest. I like this little girl, I feel like she'll help T'wigga-Watt's character development
And where the hay are Kraken and Ghi-Darah??
