Real Name: Crowley
Identity/Class: Alternate Reality
(Earth-712/"Earth-S") fauna (cat);
presumably a magic-user
Occupation: House pet and presumptive familiar to Arcanna
Group Membership: None
Affiliations: Andrew Jones, Arcanna Jones (aka Arcanna and Moonglow), Benjamin Thomas Jones, Drusilla Jones, Katrina Jones, Philip Jones;
the Joneses also had pet fish...we don't know how Crowley felt about that
Enemies: None known (possibly Lamprey/Donald McGuiggin)
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Presumably Pommerschen, New Troy, Earth-712;
at least formerly a home in Squadron City in the Great America Desert;
First Appearance: Squadron Supreme I#1 (September, 1985)
Powers/Abilities: Appearing to be a normal domestic shorthair cat, Crowley apparently has certain magical abilities and perhaps advanced intelligence.
Crowley can apparently sense the approach of Arcanna (at least) to their home, and he can communicate this with the members of her family. Whether Crowley actually speaks or speaks telepathically vs. one or more of Arcanna's children's magical abilities allow them to sense Crowley's thoughts is unclear. The non-magical Phil seemed to indicate he received communication from Crowley.
Given Arcanna's magical abilities and spell-casting, it seems extremely likely that Crowley served as her familiar, facilitating her spell-casting in some fashion.
Height: Unrevealed (like 8-10" at the shoulder; approximately 18" from nose to tail tip)
Weight: Unrevealed (likely 10-14 lbs.)
Eyes: Unrevealed (likely green)
(Squadron Supreme I#1 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Crowley became the pet (and possibly more) of the magic-user Arcanna.
(Squadron Supreme I#1 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Arcanna married Philip Jones, and they had three children: Drusilla, Katrina, and Andrew.
(Squadron Supreme I#1 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Arcanna established a spell of camouflage to hide her family's home in the forests of Pommerschen, New Troy.
(Squadron Supreme I#1 - BTS) - After the Squadron had voted to resolve their world's current chaos via implementing the Utopia Program, Arcanna traveled to Pommerschen to visit her family.
(Squadron Supreme I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Sensing Arcanna's presence, Crowley told Philip he felt her to be nearby.
(Squadron Supreme I#1) - As Arcanna magically opened the door to their home, Philip and the kids greeted her, with Philip noting that Crowley had told him he felt her to be nearby. Arcanna replied, "That darn cat! I wanted it to be a surprise."
Crowley subsequently watched as Drusilla demonstrated how she had learned to levitate her doll, and he purred as the family spoke. Crowley later watched as Arcanna and Philip embraced romantically.
(Squadron Supreme I#6) - Alongside the rest of the family, Crowley stood on a mesa and watched as Arcanna mystically camouflaged Squadron City. Arcanna then levitated the family -- who held hands in succession, with Andrew holding Crowley's paw, causing Crowley to cry out -- into the city, which they could see as soon as they penetrated the illusory hemisphere. Once on the ground again, Crowley took off.
(Squadron Supreme I#6) - Crowley presumably took up residence in their home within Squadron City (see comments).(Squadron Supreme: New World Order (fb) - BTS) - Crowley told Arcanna's family that she would come back to them.
Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Bob Hall, and John Beatty.
Various sites note that Crowley protected Arcanna's family and that he acted as a go-between between her and her family when she was away. That may be true, but I didn't see anything in the stories to confirm that.
