Colin Talbot was just a good ole fashioned WW2 pilot and saver of puppies. One day on base he saw a flyer looking for volunteers to partake in an axeperiment that would lead to the betterment of all Americans. Since Colin loves America, he signed up for the trial. This trial was going to inject Colin with an axeperimental hand axe coordination increasing concoction. However, a nazi spy set off a small bomb in the lab which led to Colin being bombarded with Axe-rays while getting his injection. The result was Colin being imbued with immense axe throwing abilities. Colin went on to use his axeeptional skills to axe out the Nazi threat. Unfortunately, in his final battle with the spy who blew up the lab, Colin fell into the freezing waters of the Arctic. An exploratory group called the Rockaxe City Throwing Club discovered Colin and thawed him out. With the Nazi threat eliminated, Colin retired to the calm life of teaching people to throw axes - so if the Nazi threat returns, they’ll be ready. Colin also has an adorable son named Liam.
The Very True Story about Emmy Shortaxe
Many many years ago as the age of Gods was coming to an end, Zeus knew that eventually Chaos would reign again. So he molded together some clay and made a small but powerful warrior. With his final breath he said I shall name you Shortaxe and used his final breath to breathe life into Shortaxe. Shortaxe was then raised on a small hidden island named Axelandia. Here she trained night and day to become an amazing axe thrower that would one day take on Chaos in an epic battle. One morning she noticed a small tomahawk on the beach and picked it up and shouted “This is the Call of Chaos.” This is what she had trained for her whole life. She took off for a foreign and majestic land called Huntsville. It is in Huntsville that Shortaxe works undercover as a beloved Axepert where she trains the amazing people who come to Rockaxe City Throwing Club - so when Chaos shows his face, they’ll be ready.
