    Now is there a king every generation or does it depend on the life span of the king? If the king dies young and it's passed to the next in line? If the King outlives his son and passes it to his grandchildren?
    How long is the average eternian lifespan?
    Is there a set of rules for the succession of kings?
    there is so much history that needs to be fleshed out here.
    I agree - I am actually writing and creating a MOTU role playing game system similar to Dungeons and Dragons with the MOTUC bios and the 200X mythos as the backbone to the game world. It would be nice to flesh out the history of the kings etc, but gaps like this do allow a bit of creativity I suppose - I guess it gives us space and opportunity to create our own stories and ideas.

    Here are both bios written out.

    Castaspella - Enchantress Who Hypnotizes
    Real Name: Esmeralda


    Beautiful friend to She-Ra, Castaspella is one of the most powerful mages on Etheria. After the Horde claimed her beautiful planet as a new homeworld during their banishment in Despondos, Castaspella became a leader in the Great Rebellion helping to defend the people of Etheria with her magic. She has been known to temporarily hypnotize her foes, and although she can be a bit flighty at times, her strength and courage have helped her fight the oppression of Hordak. She is special friends with both Angella and Frosta and only uses her magic for good.
    Shokoti - Evil Witch of Eternia
    Real Name: Shokoti


    Possessing incredible powers fueled by darkness, Shokoti was the most dangerous sorceress on the Dark Hemisphere of Eternia. Fearing her plan to cover the entire planet in darkness, Shokoti's fellow blue-skinned Gars lured the nefarious witch into the sunlight and buried her with her beast companion in the House of Darkness. Many years later, the shapeshifting wizard Masque raised the temple from the Sands of Time and opened the door to darkness once more until He-Man heroically defeated Shokoti and the Sleeping Beast forever. Shokoti uses the darkness and magic to cast illusions and project energy blasts from her hands.

    Good job, gang! Someday I will update the Narrative thread (silly ol' higher-education getting in the way...). Of course, at this point, I'm waiting until after SDCC...!

    Patty, where are you pal? I miss you!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    There are NEW BIOS!

    Nepthu - Wicked Sun Sorcerer
    Real Name: Nepthu Sencri

    A devoted servant to Count Marzo, Nepthu was devastated when his master was transformed into a powerless old man and vowed revenge. Without magical ability of his own, he spent years scouring the Sands of Fire and Sands of Time until he was also an old man. Nepthu eventually found the Temple of the Sun and within it the Sun Scarab and was transformed into a young wizard with a fervant desire to control the universe. His scarab was destroyed by He-Man, leaving him powerless, but he transformed once more when he pledged his devotion to King Hsss during the Second Ultimate Battleground. Nepthu has powerful magical abilities that include freezing energy blasts as well as the ability to block telepathy and create an entire army made out of sand.
    Sky High - Heroic Airship Adventurer
    Real Name: Darid

    A former palace guard serving under Teela, Darid was best known as an ace test pilot, working alongside Duncan to put his latest inventions to the test. Daring to push the limit on almost any vehicle, Darid earned the nick name "Sky High" and helped Duncan's team to upgrade the Wind Raider and Jet Sled for faster acceleration and smoother landings. During the Second Ultimate Battleground, he led a squadron of Blaster Hawks into battle combatting the Horde Boa Jets and King Hsss' new Snake Strike Squad. As cocky as he is brave, Sky High defends Eternos from aerial attacks.

    Okay! Some bios to look into - I am a big fan of the MOTUC cannon for the most part (apart from clones and skeleteens) so let's look at them in turn.

    Castaspella: Not a great bio at all honestly. I understand going right off of the styleguide but it makes her feel less a part of the cannon and the story they are trying to weave which is a shame for such a key character. Also this "special friend" stuff is a little bit strange.

    Shokoti: For the most part it is great, I just wish He-man didn't defeat her "forever" but then again, forever doesn't mean anything in comics, cartoons or geeky things like this. Characters are always coming back from the dead etc. I am fine with her being a Gar and glad she isn't related to Keldor.

    Nepthu: The bio is the best thing about the figure. I really, really like this one. Makes me want to own him more actually as weird as that sounds. Proof that a good bio can increase the likelyhood of purchase. Really like that he is linked with Marzo and Hssss. Like the real name and love that he is squeezed into the MOTUC cannon.

    Sky High: Good bio, was expecting him to be a Foe man but I like the new character they have created. Seems a bit like Flipshot though honestly, but still very good. I also like the real name. It is good to get a brand new team member for the good guys too.

    Wow I'm impressed with Nepthu's bio, I really like it.
    Scott made him cool in it. He should have done this with other Filmation characters as well.

    Nepthu's bio is great.

    I'm surprised though that Sky High isn't a member of the FFM. I guess this means he won't come with a Horde sybol for his armor.

    Mantenna: I am fine with the bio, the real name is a bit of a mouthful, but all in all it is fine, a good mixture of personality and powers.

    Horde troopers Again a functional bio, pretty cool and I like the reference to Horde World.

    Go to fwoosh and click on 2013 Mattel Saturday updates headline. There is a pic of the Lord Dactus bio. The headline after that has the Mantenna bio.

    Haven't seen Dactus bio on fwoosh, but I guess it will be that same 200X cartoon story.

    Maybe something like this :-

    Real Name : Batonoris

    King of bat people............. Neutral stance............ Rivalry with Caligans (Whiplash race - I think...... hey, am I right on this ?)..................... Randor made them friends.............. And formed a council !

    There ya go !!

    EDIT : And that pic pretty much confirms it (apart from that real name) !

    I actually really like Lord Dactus' and Standor's bios. Both add to the characters nicely. The others seem decent but not as well done as the previously mentioned. October is going to be AMAZING!!!!
