Character du Jour: Sher kaa bachcha

When Great Dada created the first human, the other Animal Gods laughed. What was this creature that was weaker than a gorilla, slower than a cheetah, less patient than a snake and less cunning that a fox? Yet as the humans grew and spread, their laughter turned to jealously, and each Animal God decided to create a human of their own.

With each generation, a human child is born to each animal race, inheriting the traits of it’s parents but given human form. The child is nurtured to become a blessed protector of the race and Avatar of the Animal God. Sher kaa bachcha is one such avatar, representative of the Tiger God. Born to a family of Bengal Tigers he travels the wild places of the world with his sister Benga protecting the dwindling numbers of his kind against the encroach of man.

“Sher kaa bachcha” means “son of a tiger” in Hindi.

Dirty little secret: Legends have spread about an Upright Tiger, and more than one hunter has sworn to claim his head as a trophy.

Notes: Tiger-man, Tiger-man, does whatever a Tiger can. It’s characters like this that explain why I think both Mutants & Masterminds and DAZ Studio are simply the best at what they do; take a simple concept, and I can make it look awesome in both. Oh yeh!

  1. The wonderful thing about tiggers
    Is tiggers are wonderful things!
    Their tops are made out of rubber
    Their bottoms are made out of springs!
    They’re bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy
    Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
    But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
    I’m the only one
    Tiggers are cuddly fellas
    Tiggers are awfully sweet
    Ev’ryone el-us is jealous

    Sorry, had to.
