The LEAD SOLDIER served honorably in Her Majesty's Royal Guard in his former life, and fought honorably in many battles... before being laid low by the sad fate of toys everywhere: he got lost. He had resigned himself to a sad fate of obscurity, and even risked being melted down, until he was rescued by a craftsman and restored to his former glory. His greatest fear is that someone will find out that he is not in fact a Lead Soldier... but that he is actually lead-free pewter, a shameful thing, as lead is dangerous, and a soldier wants to be as dangerous as possible. The WOODEN PIRATE sailed the seven seas in search of plunder, and given that his boy was a rather bloodthirsty sort, participated in many atrocities, which rather disturbed the Wooden Pirate; personally, he was a rather tenderhearted sort, and could be talked out of plundering your ship if it came out that you lacked insurance, a thing which made the other pirates laugh at him at the annual pirate conventions. After striking up an acquaintance with the Lead Soldier, he was convinced to take up heroism as a career, and is known throughout the land of Zo as the slayer of Shaykosch, the Deathless Wolf. The Wooden Pirate has found happiness in his new career field, and can often be found with his friend the Lead Soldier as they undertake new adventures daily. The Lead Soldier was rescued from the adoption table at Reapercon recently, and given a new paint job. His existence inspired the construction of a character found in the backstory of the RPG, "The Zantabulous Zorceror Of Zo," the famous and heroic Wooden Pirate, scratchbuilt from wooden doweling, beads, and some scraps. And yes, I know, his arms are visually disturbing for being a bit too long. This is a thing that will be corrected on the next wooden figure. Y'know what? Cyanoacrylate doesn't hold for beans on wood. Go with epoxy. And Alison wants you all to know she is NOT a puppet!
