The Otter is one of the longest-running Characters of the Never-ending Story. He was first introduced on NeS Page 3 and has since been a central member of the NeS Heroes. He is constantly in a state of drunkenness, ranging from mildly drunk to outrageously drunk - swinging between states from one post to the next. Despite being constantly drunk, The Otter is also a valuable target of knowledge - mostly due to him being around long enough to know a lot. He did enjoy a romantic liaison with Maybelle Child and went through an entire period of being completely sober, however it would not last and he eventually returned to the Heroes absent his girlfriend and drunk once again. Despite dating the resident feminist, The Otter is known as a womaniser. Initially his charms appeared to work on women, however he eventually became undesirable by every woman he met as Pages went by.

Description

Appearance

He wore a black ensemble when he first entered NeS, consisting of jeans, a long trenchcoat, a bowler hat, combat boots and a 'Rage' t-shirt - everything being black[NeS1 1].

Personality

The Otter is willing to steal even the smallest of things[NeS1 2], sometimes even using violence or threats of violence to do so[NeS1 3]. His violent streak extends to unthinking assaults against people, normally villains, with the intent to kill[NeS1 4]. Despite this he does have a caring streak for people around him and may do things just to please them, such as acquire special magazines that appeal to each individual[NeS1 5]. He is often likely to let others tell him about fashion, especially MaybeChild, as he doesn't care either way about his clothes[NeS1 6].

Alcoholism

The Otter's drinking problem became apparent very early on, which he displays shortly after killing Bo the Alligator[NeS1 4]. He will resort to violence to ensure he has a supply of alcohol[NeS1 3]. As well as alcohol Otter, often along with MaybeChild, will take recreational drugs[NeS1 5].

Violence

The Otter can be incredibly violent towards enemies[NeS1 4], but also violent towards innocent people too. This is especially when he is stealing alcohol[NeS1 3].

Hideaway

The Otter likes to have his own personal hideaway, normally unconventional ones such as Fort Xanthan and The Crow's Nest. He also stashes his stolen possessions in these locales[NeS1 7].

Powers & Talents

Vulcan Flame

The Otter is capable of producing magical flame from his hands, which he called Vulcan Flames. He can generate the flame into shapes and direct the flaming constructs through the air with deadly precision[NeS1 4].

Possessions

Weapons

Flint-Lock Duelling Rifles

The Otter possesses two flint-lock, meaning they require flint to be fired, duelling rifles[NeS1 2].

Huskarl

The Huskarl sword is a four foot-long Gothic-style blade that Otter keeps in his medic's bag[NeS1 4].

Medic's Bag

The Otter has a black medic's bag[NeS1 1]. The bag is capable of holding far more than its size ought to allow, including a four foot long sword named Huskarl[NeS1 4].

Vehicles

Volkswagen Beetle

Otter has a souped-up 1974 Volkswagen Beetle[Ext 1] with Saturn V rocket[Ext 2] boosters but he lost the keys to it as soon as he arrived in the arena[NeS1 1]. He wouldn't find the keys for that car until the very end of NeS2 (citation needed).

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

After losing the keys to his first car, The Otter obtained another Volkswagen[Ext 3] car, this time the Karmann Ghia[Ext 4], which is also souped-up. It is jet black in colour[Ext 5].

Relationships

Friendships

The Otter and Antestarr have a relationship that seems to predate the start of the NeS wherein Antestarr may have been very drunk and took Otter to a bar. The experience has left Otter lamenting it[NeS1 8].

Lovers

The Otter and MaybeChild were first friends that bonded well over a shared interest of recreational drugs[NeS1 5].

The Indigo Girls

The Indigo Girls were a group of lesbian activists that originally intended to stop sexism and heterosexism but, instead, succumbed to it by becoming 'bunny girls' of The Otter where they lived in the Crow's Nest surrounded by porn magazines. The group includes Mindy, who is incredibly strong[NeS1 9].

History

The Fight of the Century of the Week

Main article: The Fight of the Century of the Week

The Otter arrived in the Colosseum when he heard that some of his friends were involved in the fights staged in the Arena by Ares, the God of War. He drove into the Arena in his 1974 Volkswagen Beetle but then realised he locked his keys inside the car[NeS1 1]. Instead of joining the battle, The Otter entered a 7 Eleven that somehow appeared in the Arena where everyone was battling. Despite walking into the 7 Eleven brandishing rifles, The Otter instead stole from the shop by tricking the cashier into looking the other way. He fled the shop with his pockets full of Cow Tales[Ext 6], a kind of chocolate snack designed to look like a cow's tail[NeS1 2]. After eating all of his Cow Tales, The Otter was being hassled by Enchilada Man to purchase some Mexican food. Otter used his rifles to shoot a hole in Enchilada Man's cart and then threatened to call the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)[Ext 7] and report Enchilada Man. Enchilada Man left Otter alone, grumbling[NeS1 10]. However Semievil, who was one of those involved Ares' duels, saw The Otter's actions and informed the Colosseum audience of Otter's crime. Many of those who had been sleeping were now awake and began to march on The Otter. To escape them The Otter climbed into a tree. Semievil then noticed the empty Cow Tales wrappers and, again, informed the crowd that Otter was the man who robbed the 7 Eleven. The crowd demanded that the tree be cut down, so Semievil goes to find his lightsabre. In Semievil's absence the crowd got Otter out of the tree and demanded that he rob the 7 Eleven again so they could all have Cow Tales[NeS1 11]. When he entered the 7 Eleven he found that Sundeep, the store clerk, was asleep. The Otter decided that this was his opportunity to claim the 7 Eleven as his and renamed it "Fort Xanthan". He then raised a flag and threw Cow Tales to everyone after which he said that anyone was welcome to enter his fort[NeS1 12].

When Bo the Alligator entered the arena and started eating audience members, The Otter declared that he would deal with him. From his medical bag, which is seemingly a bottomless pit, he took out a huskarl sword and attacked Bo. Semievil informed The Otter that it wouldn't be so easy so Otter proceeded to beat the alligator instead of trying to chop him up. Semievil decided to give an example of this and beat up the Narrator. Otter remembered that Bo the Alligator had eaten a drunk cameraman and Otter deduced that fire would work on Bo - so he used his magical flame powers to shoot fire into the mouth of Bo. The alligator exploded and there was much rejoicing. The Otter then gets three bottles of vodka for 'nourishment' and headed back to his 7 Eleven fort. This is the first real example of Otter's alcoholism[NeS1 4]. When Sam & Max[Ext 8] approach Fort Xanthan in their commandeered Rabbit Walker[NeS1 13], The Otter is incredibly drunk and insults Max. Max proceeds to blow up the 7 Eleven and Otter is sent flying through the air only to land at the feet of a very angry Semievil who is pissed that Otter killed Bo the Alligator. They start to hurl insults at each other[NeS1 14]. Semievil starts beating Otter with a rubber-duckie attached to Bernard the Pidgeon and is joined by Sundeep, angry at the loss of his shop. Sundeep, however, turns on Semievil when he realises the rubber-duckie is stolen from his former shop[NeS1 15]. While they're fighting, Otter manages to sneak off and decides he has to go to the men's room. While there, however, he found a secret vent in the stall that led to the janitor's spacious closet. After rearranging the place and filling it with stolen goods he decides this is his new base and called it The Crow's Nest[NeS1 7]. He is convinced to sign an organ donation form by the mysterious Lord Crud[NeS1 16]. When Gebohq puts a lampshade on his head and starts to dance[NeS1 17], Otter realises that he must have eaten the twinkies[Ext 9] he had been saving. He alleges that twinkies will become toxic after seven years and must be causing Gebohq to have hallucinations since they're over six years old now[NeS1 18].

Semievil finally finds Gebohq and bursts in on him and The Otter in the Crow's Nest[NeS1 19], he then runs out of the room when he sees the mountain of porn claiming his 'virgin eyes' but Gebohq sees through the trick to get him to run after Semievil and straight into hidden explosives[NeS1 20]. He is, however, still 'temporarily insane' from the years old twinkies and, after threatening to get his rubber ducky to fight Semievil, he falls out of the window of the Crow's Nest and into the bleachers where Rob X is sleeping. Gebohq murders Rob X, in the sight of several Characters and then heads towards Gonk[Ext 10] with the intention of killing it too[NeS1 21]. Before Gebohq could, however, Otter stops him and, instead, wants to kill the Gonk droid himself - which he does using his Vulcan Flame[NeS1 22]. A short time later The Otter is roped into a Scooby-Doo[Ext 11] parody where he winds up as Scooby-Doo[Ext 12] the dog[NeS1 23]. A monster chases them around in typical Scooby-Doo fashion[NeS1 24] until Antestarr traps it in a net and removes its mask to reveal Semievil. Before they could celebrate Raistlin Majere[Ext 13] bursts out of a lava pit and vows to take down a dragon, mistaking Galvatron as one[NeS1 25]. Semievil takes down Raistlin and tries to tie him up with banana peels[NeS1 26] but Raistlin tricks Semievil into allowing him to help and he manages to tie Semievil up instead. The other heroes are high on drugs and dance about like hippies until MaybeChild burns the banana peels to set Semievil free[NeS1 27]. Still high from the drugs, Antestarr calls his friend on his mobile phone and, while speaking in a surfer[Ext 14] accent, proceeds to demonstrate the sound of him beating himself with a shoe to his friend. After that he goes, with The Otter who is surprisingly sober, to the Arena Bar where he meets a well-endowed woman and orders champagne[NeS1 8]. While Otter stops Antestarr from fondling the woman, he threatens the bartender and forces him to put lots of bottles of booze into his doctor's bag. He drags Antestarr away but sets the bar on fire before he leaves, using his vulcan flame. Antestarr, though he's still high, rushes back in to save the woman[NeS1 3]. A short time later, Antestarr is in the Crow's Nest with Otter and explains how he had tried to order a dyke from the Officials' Board but accidentally got a pike instead. The Crow's Nest is then invaded by The Indigo Girls who are angry with Antestarr's crude request. Before they beat him up, however, they're distracted by Otter's massive porn stash. Mindy, one of the Indigo Girls, kicks Antestarr out and the Indigo Girls become his 'bunnies'[NeS1 9]. The former owner of The Crow's Nest, the arena janitor, shows up but The Otter murders him with his huskarl[NeS1 28]. Gebohq, who has been stoned for a while now, is watching the bunny girls when he noticed Otter's Swedish penis-enlarger[NeS1 29]. The Otter asks the women to look the other way while he throws the device out of the window[NeS1 30]. While Gebohq starts reading a book, The Otter teaches a sex game to The Indigo Girls[NeS1 31]. He would later give Gebohq something better to read, a soft-core pornography magazine with Laetitia Casta[Ext 15] in it[NeS1 32]. When MaybeChild came into the room he revealed that he had a special magazine for everyone and gave MaybeChild a Metallica[Ext 16] magazine. They then started smoking hookah[Ext 17] together[NeS1 5]. Semievil then dragged Otter back down into the arena where he handed him a beaded bone-weapon and told him that Trixie, the cybernetic dog, was giving them away. He dressed Otter in the cloak he had worn when fighting Antestarr and had removed the bones from Trixie to fashion into the weapon he made Otter hold, evidently expecting Trixie to attack Otter instead of himself[NeS1 33]. Otter went off to Trixie's Room where the dog and the bear were asleep in a gigantic bed. Otter met MaybeChild inside who didn't like Otter's choice of fashion and made him change his clothes, discarding the cloak. Seeing that his cloak was going to be thrown away, Semievil rushed in to reclaim it. Now with his cloak back, however, Trixie woke up and found Semievil there. He turned to Otter and MaybeChild for help but they'd already left[NeS1 6]. The Otter, thinking that there was to be a bikini party atop of the colosseum radio tower, drove up there only to find Totallyevil, who bashed him with a block of cheddar cheese[NeS1 34].

Notes

Britt's Commentary

"It's probable that the 'Rage' t-shirt mentioned in Otter's introductory post[NeS1 1] refers to the band, Rage Against the Machine[Ext 18]." ~ Britt the Writer
