#BLAST-004: WHO IS SQUAWK? AND WHAT’S WITH THOSE EYES? DUDE, YOU FLY THROUGH RIPS IN SPACE. WE GET IT. YOU’RE CREEPY.

WHO IS SQUAWK?

Alekko, the magical mystery uh, well I wanted to say “man” for the alliteration, but I suppose that’s hardly an apt descriptor.

I thought I had it. Must be getting late.  Let’s try once more…

Alekko, the red-eyed, clammy skinned freak-boy!  Yes, that’ll have to do. Cut right to the chase! Anyway, scary, mysterious and powerful as he is, Alekko still has his errand bo– well I was gonna say “boy,” but Squawk’s a… “bird”. Hmm, not really a bird as much as—

Geez! Alekko and Squawk do NOT make pronouns an easy task!

Basically, what Galaxia and the gang know so far, is Alekko sends Squawk around the universe on villain reconnaissance. He’s like a spy-crow. But don’t bother with a birdhouse–trust me, you don’t want him loitering in your backyard. Forget cute whistles and preening; this feathered fiend needs a coat of wax when he gets dirty, more like it, ‘cause from what I’ve heard, he’s a robot. And when I say he gets “dirty,” I mean more like cooking the books, putting one over on you, stealing from the till—know what I’m saying? This ain’t hygiene, it’s more like crimes, Gene!

Gene! Meet Squawk! He can travel through black holes, open up rips in space, appear in Muchokids’ nightmares induced by Alekko, record information in his spinning, swirling, spying eyes to show his master–and what about those weird, orb-marbles he and Alekko like to trade back and forth so much? You don’t even wanna know, Jack! Gene. Sorry, my bad.

Gene, we’re not hiring. I’ll show you the way out. And word to the wise: watch the skies on the walk to your car. If you hear a bird shrieking through the air, sounding more like a blender full of scrap metal than a crow, run!
