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 ATH-14-WPA Standing Tortoise Snook Custom. Snook’s customized version of the ATH-14-ST Standing Tortoise was waterproofed for the river-heavy Kummen area. Its only armament was a catapult launcher, which was more than suitable for hunting guerillas on foot. During one particular Veela hunt, Snook became the third target of former soldier Merowlink Ality’s quest for vengeance.
