After the Hundred Years War ended, a Melkian officer named Stavros who was involved with the Plan Bang Doll scandal relocated to Melkia’s Kummen jungle area with the new identity of “Snook.” Using every underhanded method, Snook built a vast fortune and power base, but he was hated by the local Veela guerillas because his pastimes included hunting them like animals with his armored trooper squad. Snook’s right hand man Gomez usually led the charge with his red ATH-14-WP Standing Tortoise Gomez Custom. Unlike the ATH-14-WP Standing Tortoise Snook Subordinate Custom, Gomez’s unit was armed with a launcher that could load ant-personnel ammunition. Gomez was killed when former Melkian soldier Merowlink Ality used a Veela attack as cover to get revenge on Snook.
