Who Turned Out the Lights?
NEOPIA - It might be fun to be a Neopian celebrity, running away from the crowds
of fanatic n00bs in a hope to save your lucky green boots, but haven’t you thought,
just once… “Haven’t we forgotten someone”? It’s time to meet Neopia’s forgotten
characters, starting with a Faerie, would you believe it?
THE BATTLE FAERIE
She helped make the battle dome, saved Fyora, Illusen and all the other wimps
when they couldn’t be brave enough to help in the wars! The Battle Faerie certainly
has some interesting stories to tell. But what have we of her? A Neopedia article,
a very old picture and a shopkeeper. Surely she deserves some credit! How about
her opening her own Faerie Weapons shop? Or a new Hidden Tower, with only battle
items, none of these paint brushes clogging it up!
All in all, she’s a pretty cool faerie, and deserves to be thrust into the
spotlight, however I need to throw some other Neopians under the limelight…
Give it up for…
THE GHOUL CATCHERS
Saving Neopia from the vampires and ghosts that plague us at night, the Ghoul
Catchers are heroes, lost in an endless sea of Neopedia articles. With only
two articles of their tale, it is hard to work out much about them, except that
they are rightful heroes. Whether it’s trapping the Ghost Lupe, defeating Werelupes,
or finding the hidden diaries to banish all vampires, the Ghoul Catchers definitely
deserved a round of applause and some fan mail! Last seen running from Werelupes
on Mystery Island, the Ghoul Catchers are Bren the Yellow Wocky, Binsjin the
Blue Kacheek and Boolin the red Kiko. So give it up for the ghoul catchers!
They deserve their own game, plushies, books and so much more! I mean wouldn’t
we all be better off without vampires? Next up is…
THE HIGHLAND CHIA
Well known to Battledome freaks addicts, the Highland Chia is a formidable
foe. This haggis chomping, log flinging, kilt-wearing Chia is scary BEFORE you
go into battle with him! The Highland Chia just wants to get on with his battling
career, so maybe someone should send him a gift once in a while, before they
battle him, like a fresh haggis, a new kilt or a sharp weapon.
Maybe you’re thinking, “Why on Earth does he deserve anything?” Well it’s
because everyday, thousands of Neopians beat him up, and he gets nothing in
return. He didn’t even get his paint brush on the market (Tartan Paint Brush)
He deserves his own plushies, his tartan paint brush, some weapons with his
name on, or a day off all this battling to sit down with some of his Mam’s haggis!
Are Chias the most forgotten of all species, because here’s another!
SIR FUFON LUI
Sir Fufon Lui has somehow managed to disappear from Neopia’s eyes, sinking
deep into the Neopedia. Lui, another Chia, is straight out of the three musketeers.
He loves duelling, his moustache, and any fair damsel he can find!
Helping Neopia fight off the Lupe Raiders, Lui has saved many a shop from
being ransacked, and for what?
A Neopedia article and people making jokes about his name. Surely he deserves
something? Couldn’t he become a Battledome challenger, defeating every scallywag
to dare break the law, steal his damsels or disgrace him and his moustache.
God of the Island natives, Mumbo Pango is as dangerous as ever! With the Island
TCG set coming soon, and many natives becoming restless, it looks like the days
are numbered for the tribes holiday side, as it returns to the savage natives
it began with. But what about Mumbo Pango, their ever ready god?
He hasn’t been fed well since the ancient Sacrificers competition, which has
been removed from Neopia, his chef is going mad every day trying to serve up
new and exciting gourmet foods. But even the Chef now is being ignored, so how’s
poor Mumbo going to eat?
Of course, people make offerings every day to his Cooking Pot, run by faithful
Jhuidah. But always he has to give in return, with more and more people figuring
out the right combinations, this one a sand sculpture, that one a weird petpet,
this one a Meepit gnome, surely he must be sick of it!
Why don’t we give his two luckless servants a day off? And every Neopian will
come forth and give him a little bit of food? Why don’t we run Sacrificers 2,
give him some staff members again! Grumpy Old King, how about Grumpy Mumbo Pango?
The possibilities are endless.
Exiled for murdering that Good King Coltzan, back in the old Usurper plot,
Sankara hasn’t been seen since she left. But what has happened to her? Has she
gone back to her old homeland, defeated by the evil King Heskas and his army,
as the last of the royal fourth Khonsu dynasty, liberating the people of Khamtef?
Surely there should be a game, Sankara’s Escape, or a new land, Khamtef itself,
in which Sankara returns and there is a war to help free the Khamtef people
from King Heskas’ evil reign? Then again, the other people from Usurper have
also been forgotten, but at least they weren’t exiled!
THE DUNG FAERIE
Another luckless faerie, the Dung Faerie hides around the Meridell Rubbish
Dump, conjuring up dung for lucky visitors. Is it her fault she got stuck with
such a boring job? In her spare time she even goes around Pick your Own, adding
dung to the game? Surely she deserves to be noticed as a REAL faerie? Yes, SHE
DOES! And she is real, you non believers!
After all, how else would you get the Pick your Own avatar? She deserves her
own plushie, a dung mansion, her own Quests and so much more! And if enough
people asked for it, maybe she could even get a job in Tyrannia, where she would
be much more suited and appreciated.
So ends my article, I hoped you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed researching
it. All the characters in this article do appear in Neopia, I would like to
confirm and maybe the staff could take notice of my suggestions?
HINT HINT SNOWFLAKE!
