(Micronauts I#4) - Tril was a member of the Underground rebels of Sector 7, opposing the tyranny of Baron Karza and commanded by a female former royalist known only to them as Slug

    Like the rest of his comrades, Tril was caught off guard and could only flee when Karza's Dog Soldiers raided Sector 7's Underground rebellion base.

    Major D'ark specifically noted that they were seeking a Slug, who disguised herself in the garb of slain comrade so she could continue in her efforts to locate and free the captured prince Argon.

    The Dog Soldiers continued, exterminating the base's inhabitants as a lesson to the rest of the population; the few surviving rebels, including Slug and Tril, were captured and led toward to Homeworld's surface.

    As they approached Baron Karza,, D'ark noted how they were trying to ferret out information on Slug.

    Tril then vaulted over a vehicle, telling D'ark they wouldn't have to look too far, ignoring the cry of protest from the real Slug. slug_imposter-microverse-mouth

    Subdued and brought to Karza, Tril claimed to be Slug, Underground commander for Sector 7, and told Karza to let the others go since he had what he wanted. slug_imposter-microverse-corpse

    Thanking the rebel for saving him the time and energy of a brain probe, Karza launched his right hand at "Slug," swiftly choking him to death while noting that his noble sacrifice was still useless as the rest of his comrades were still going to the Body Banks.

    Slug silently noted that Tril had given his life so that she might live to contact the Prince Argon, a prisoner of the Body Banks. As she and the rest of the prisoners were herded into transports, she damned Karza for the price he made them pay.

Comments: Created by Bill Mantlo, Michael Golden, and Josef Rubinstein

    Oddest to me was that he seemed to wearing a pair of 70's short-shorts...maybe they were made of Terry Cloth?
