History:
(MCP#162/1 - BTS): Blowfly was the leader of a group of high tech slave gatherers for Sultan and others. He set up a HQ in the lands of the Aborigines. The government didn't bother him and the Aborigines were in no position to complain.

(MCP#162/1): Blowfly was hired by Sultan to bring him three women. He wanted to know if that was all his employer wanted and Sultan told him that he could bring anything else of interest along with them. Together with his team he attacked a village of the Aborigines. He started to shoot some Aborigines after Heinrich was injured by one of them. After all opposition was eliminated Blowfly asked Heinrich if he was alright. Blowfly then left the village with his team and the captured Aborigines.

(MCP#162/1 - BTS): Blowfly drove to Temasika with three captured Aborigines women and Sultan bought them. One of the Sultan's ministers wanted some for himself and Blowfly returned to his HQ in Australia.

(MCP#163/2): Blowfly told Heinrich about the wishes of Sultan's minister when he returned and told the captured Aborigines that they would all get a new home soon. He went into the HQ to drink a beer with Heinrich. When the lights went out and the base appeared to be under attack, he quickly got outside. He sent Heinrich back in to finish their unknown enemy. He heard terrible noises from the inside and all his men ran away. He thought it was just a trick of the Aborigines, but then he saw Tigra. He tried to shoot her, but none of his bullets hit her and Tigra captured him.

(MCP#164/4): Tigra brought Blowfly tied up in chains to his captured men. The Aborigines wanted to kill three of his men because they had lost three of their women. Tigra didn't want this and asked Blowfly to bring her to the place where he took the women to. He agreed to do it and drove Tigra with his Hovercraft to Temasika. She warned him to wait for him because the lives of his crew depended on it. Blowfly seemed to be alright with it, but when she returned with the three women he was gone. Far away the Hovercraft of Blowfly could still be seen.

Blowfly and his crew of slave gatherers weren't given much background or story to work with. Most of them were just there to make up the numbers. Only two members except Blowfly were even named. Sometimes it isn't even clear who is around at the time because the reader sees them from a distance standing in the shadows.

"Brumm"

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a big gun like most of the others. He really liked his work and screamed "Yee-harrr!" while shooting at innocents. He fled when the lights went out in the HQ and was captured and brought to his allies by some Aborigines. His destiny after Blowfly's betrayal is unknown.

"Dudikoff"

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a big gun like most of the others. He liked to wear red sunglasses. Somehow he fled from the HQ when the lights went out. He was later captured by the Aborigines and brought to his already captured allies. His destiny after Blowfly's betrayal is unknown.

Heinrich

Heinrich used a big gun and a knife and participated in the attack on a Aborigine village. Heinrich immediately found a woman worth taking with them and was injured by an elderly Aborigine with a spear. After the opposition was eliminated he was asked by Blowfly if he was alright. The spear didn't hurt Heinrich too much and he just pulled it out. Together with Outback he goaded the captured Aborigines when they didn't move fast enough. He asked Blowfly how everything went when he returned from Temasika and was pleased to hear that the ministers of Sultan wanted more slaves. He drank a beer in the HQ with Blowfly, and was quick enough to get to the outside when the lights went out. He was sent back in to eliminate their attacker. Heinrich thought it was some predatory feline, but it was Tigra (so he was parly right - Loki). Heinrich was finished off by Tigra in a fast way. His gun was useless and his blood was spilled.

"Opaque"

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a big rifle like most of the others. He stood in the shadows all the time. He was never seen again and probably didn't make it out of the HQ when the lights went out.

"Outback"

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a big rifle like most of the others. He goaded the captured Aborigines when they didn't move fast enough. He left the HQ when the lights went out and ran away when he heard the terrible noises from the inside. He wanted to return to the Hovercraft with the others, but nobody knew how to work it and so Slug decided against this option. He was captured by the Aborigines and tied up with chains. His destiny after Blowfly's betrayal is unknown.

Slug

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a big gun like the most of the others. For unknown reasons he wore a headband in front of his eyes. He was fast enough to get out of the HQ when the lights went out. He screamed for Heinrich when he heard the noises from the inside. Heinrich didn't return and Slug ran away with his allies. He heard the screams of Blowfly from the distance. He didn't listen to Outback when he wanted them to return to the Hovercraft because nobody knew how to work it. He was captured by the Aborigines and they tied him up with chains. He was afraid to die when he heard that the Aborigines wanted to kill three of them because they lost three women to them. His destiny after Blowfly's betrayal is unknown.

"Smylex"

He participated in the attack on a Aborigine village and used a gattling cannon and blade he had instead of hands. He was fast enough when the lights went out in the HQ and left the building. He ran away with his allies when he heard the noises from the inside. He was captured along with some allies by the Aborigines. They took away his weapons and tied him up with chains. His destiny after Blowfly's betrayal is unknown.
