Halloween Set B: "JACKAL LANTERNS" (orange masks/green & purple tunics)
Frankie (“Knuckles”) and Ruben (“Blades”), they’re typical Sector 19/Zuggazunna district guys: ultra-low-level street-creepers, known for losing at their game more than half the time. They find some old lumi-masks for sale at a night market (scavenged cargo from a derelict freighter that had been drifting forfuckingever and a day.) They install zippers in the back, snug ‘em up for a nice tight fit. Get these cute little tunics, make a pair of homemade champ-belts, fix up some beater voidbikes… think they have “a thing” now, and they’re gonna go raiding.
Lacking the sheer berserker rage of their crime-idols, they reach out to Blades’ chem-printer cousin. Cousin comes up with a soapy transdermal goo, formulated to interact with the pungent oils leaching from the decaying, porous rubber of the masks.
“Use it like a shampoo,” he tells ‘em. “Start lathering as soon as y’can see the whites- greens, yellows, reds, whatever- of their eyes. Oh, hey… whyn’cha call yourselves “Shampuvians”!”
Chemically emboldened… but still they need something more: they’re fixated on finding some kinda figurehead, make it look and feel like they’re agents of a larger guiding force. One delirious night, they end up transfixed by an old telesignal- grainy scraps of an ancient story, “Dunked in The Deep”. One character… every time this guy is in frame, a quiet focus overcomes Knuckles and Blades… a clarity. Their perfect tactical godhead, found. They get a bioassembly printed the next morning… the Shempuvian, made real.
The voidbikes are mounted... the psychengines scream...
