Background

Many regard Angus as a pest, the bane and blight of PanOceania. This man exists in the intersection between clumsiness, obliviousness and plain old bad luck. Angus is a mascot for the PanOceanian line infantry. His misadventures add a comic relief to the situation of every anonymous Fusilier who identifies with him: always sent into the thick of things, always getting the short end of the stick and coming off bruised, but alive.


Many regard Angus as a pest, the bane and blight of PanOceania. Few soldiers have a record as long as this legendary Fusilier. But "long" does not mean "glorious" a full two-thirds of his service time has been spent convalescing in campaign hospitals, recovering from injuries, lacerations, contusions, broken bones and bullet wounds. Angus has served in both the most dangerous fronts and the safest rearguard detachments, and every time he has managed to botch his mission, break something expensive and get himself hurt in the process. This man exists in the Intersection between clumsiness, obliviousness and plain old bad luck, and he manages to strike the exact balance between them that will cause the most chaos and disarray around him without actually losing his life.

By now, a different man would have been discharged, or even jailed by a military court. However, the PanOceanian Military Complex seems to be stuck with Angus, who has become something of a viral phenomenon among the Fusilier regiments. Angus is a mascot for the Pan@ceanian line infantry. His misadventures add a comic relief to the situation of every anonymous Fusilier who identifies with him: always sent to the thick of things, always getting the short end of the stick and coming off bruised, but alive. Because, like all Fusiliers, and to the vexation of High Command, he is one tough stubborn guy.[1]
