Background/Personality: The world’s greatest detective has changed greatly from the once happy little parrot who helped others follow their beaks to the flavors of fruit. As he has become more socially aware, he has become a strident defender of the rain-forests and other environmental causes. Sam has begun to despise the humans who infringe on his tropical home. This has brought about conflict with both Cap’n Crunch and Tony the Tiger who he sees as little more than a shill for The Man.

This is a major change from the friendly bird who first popped on the scene back in the late 1960s, filled with optimism, a zest for life, and a never-ending taste for the goodness of fruit. Still, Sam can be pleasant to his fellow heroes. He will always go out of his way to help an animal in need, even a human. He feels an obligation to put on a friendly façade, as he knows that most people will never meet a tropical parrot, so their impression of his kind comes from him.

Quote: “Follow your nose. It always knows the stench of deforestation at the hands of multi-national conglomerates in search of higher profit margins.”

Tactics/Powers: He is only a parrot and lacks the raw power of many of his larger friends. His main strength is as a detective and using the finest mutant olfactory powers ever witnessed to guide his teammates in the right direction. In combat, his main strategy is to circle his opponents and catch them with surprise beak or claw attacks.

Roleplaying Notes: Michael Keaton’s Batman meets Liam Neeson’s Darkman.
