|First Game Appearance||Walthros|
King is the leader of a tribe of Bird Things, penguin-like creatures whose true name is unpronounceable to creatures of other species. He rules his people with an iron fist, and is notoriously proud and stubborn. His original name is never stated; He took the name King while on a mission to search for a new home for his people.
King first appears in the Bird Things one-shot comic, and later in the Penguingo one-shot. In these comics, King commands a vessel on the planet Pingopolis. The ship's goal is to leave the icy continent that the Bird Things call home in search of a less harsh environment. Along the way, he becomes power hungry, leaving some members of the crew wary of his intentions. Gru and other members of the crew mutiny. The ship arrives at its destination, but its crew has broken into two factions, one supporting King, and one supporting Gru. The two groups establish rival colonies in this new land.
King's backstory in Walthros follows the same basics as his story in the comics, with the major difference being that the Bird Things had built an interplanetary ship, rather than an intercontinental one, in their search for a new home. King's Bird Thing colony can be found on the southern-most continent of Walthros, where he anxiously awaits the arrival of Gru for their yearly fighting tournament. Relations between the two tribes has remained bitter, but is less openly violent when Bob Surlaw encounters them.
