Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some are just a bit rubbish. No prizes for guessing what category Shion falls into.

The most reluctant hero in the book, Shion was never very keen on the whole swords and chivalry business, mostly preferring the “hide under the kitchen table and have a bit of a sob until the trouble goes away” routine. Aside from having outrageous hair and appalling dress sense, Shion also holds a GSCE in Textiles and two A-Levels in English Lit and Maths (both lower level passes).

Having traversed Monster World on the Mega Drive, Shion was sent to battle enemies in Demon World, where ‘e bore the mark of Grimomen on ‘is ‘and, so ‘e did. After that, he went to fight the dinosaur ghost king of Ghost World (no, I’m not making this up) because there’ll be no ethereal brontosaurs on Shion’s watch!

Now, having learned of the involvement of the wicked Wailing Sisters, Shion sets off to Witchery World to do battle! Oh, and don’t call him Wonder Boy… he really doesn’t like it.

Shortfuse the Cybernik

Once a humble, yet ill-tempered squirrel by the name of Shorty, this fuzzy friend was captured by Doctor Robotnik’s forces and encased within an indestructible metallic armour to become the ultimate Badnik! However, Shorty resisted the brainwashing program and became Robotnik’s worst nightmare- Shortfuse the Cybernik!
