Battle of Wits

I believe it was Shakespeare who said "crap".

Some character redesigns to fit with the new species design!

Rose and Kolossi are both from a desert colony but Rose was reassigned to the main colony (where Rann resides). Kolossi is the adoptive parent of Rose, and very protective. He isn’t happy with Rose’s reassignment.

Ant is a worker whose personality aligns closer to a fighter. Xe constantly gets into fights and arguments with people and is rather disrespectful toward the lower officers. Xe is much more resistant to the compulsive voice of officers as well, making xem a troublesome member of the colony.
Ant gets along with Rose, however.

(edit: having trouble with pronouns myself! hur dur. These characters all used to be just “he”.)

A penguin who was previously made a Colonel-in-Chief of the Norwegian Army has been knighted at Edinburgh Zoo.

Penguin Nils Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King’s Guard since 1972.

Over the years, he has been promoted through the ranks after being adopted by Royal Guard who visited the zoo.

During the ceremony, Nils had a sword dubbed on each side of his head, where his shoulders should be, to confirm his regimental knighthood.

The proud penguin was on his best behavior throughout most of the ceremony, but shortly before the ritual was concluded and possibly suffering a bout of nerves he was seen to deposit a discreet white puddle on the ground.

Sir Nils Olav the penguin.
