Child/grandchild of an F list bio-science villain, who atm I am leaning towards having been a Schehorn engineer, who's exploits inspired the Killer Tomatoes movies.

Child is their the direct progeny, grandchild they are the kid of the escaped experiment Tara in the second movie is based on.

Maybe eggplant obsession instead of tomatoes..

I am a caffeine heathen; I prefer the waters of the mountain over the juice of the bean. Keep the Dews coming and no one will be hurt.

I know it has been a hot minute, but did anyone here actually get the point of this? I worry that my references are too obscure sometimes (other times, I know they are...).

John, of course, always reappears no matter what happens - getting killed by three strangers, getting buried alive, getting impaled on a pitchfork, getting crushed by a large stone, getting drowned in hot water...

Though like the others, he's a relative newcomer to this quaint New Hampshire village.

I should add that the connection here was to Zea, who can look very different, depending. This shouldn't be a surprise, as she is winkte, having been born male; you wouldn't have recognized her in her wilder days as Teo.

When he's not puffing on his pipe, Nic tells the two visitors that he is very happy to have come here because the People were so popular elsewhere, even as his own family were greatly despised. They were here in the town of Final Fossil last, as the people led by Ron Ober and his wife Tania were already here, having had so many other places they could be rather than on top of this valley. Mayor Ron graciously gave them some of their land, even though Nic didn't want it. They have been very happy to be so accepted by the tribe of Ober, Ron, and the others who came here such Efrid the fire man and Sunny Kitt (who divorced Ron's friend, Ray), none of whom are at all similar to him and his wife.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!
