Members of the Crocodile Tribe
Crominus is the Crocodile King and Cragger's father. His wife is Queen Crunket. A tough and fiercely-protective leader, Crominus could not stand the Lions but he always respected them. Unlike his son, Crominus ruled with logic and common sense, instead of emotion. He realized that fighting always hurts BOTH sides. He was by no means a pacifist, but he was definitely more pragmatic than his hot-headed son.
Cragger was always an extremely-competitive kid. He lived for the rush of victory. Laval actually liked that about him when they first met, and the two became best friends at a very young age. At the time, both cared only about adventure, fun, and the occasional prank. Cragger challenged Laval’s Lion sense of propriety, and Laval had a way of getting Cragger to laugh at himself – no small feat given Cragger’s oversized ego. But everything changed when Cragger had his first taste of Chi. There are strict rules about how old one must be to use Chi, and Cragger was far too young to handle its awesome power. For Cragger, Chi gave him that sense of ultimate power he had always been seeking. He never completely recovered from the experience. This was the beginning of the end for Laval and Cragger, as well as Chima’s thousand-year Age of Peace.
Hatched just seconds after Cragger, Crooler is the Crocodile Prince’s ambitious and conniving twin sister. She is constantly goading her brother on and forcing him to take all the risks, while she seeks to enjoy the rewards of his success or mock him relentlessly when he fails. Some creatures see her as the REAL authority in the Crocodile Tribe, which is fine with her. She’s happy to have the power, without any of the annoying trivialities and decision-making of official leadership. She doesn’t exactly want to overthrow Cragger as much as she wants to manipulate him for her own benefits. She is very good at pushing his buttons and pulling his strings. She knows all his weaknesses and insecurities, and constantly plays on them in order to accomplish her own goals and self-aggrandizement. She is truly the most cruel of all the Crocodiles.
Crug is Cragger’s lead Thug. He’s just big, strong, and blindly obedient. He never questions his orders. He just plows ahead with whatever insane task Cragger requests of him. Despite his volatile and dangerous nature, he sleeps with a stuffed Teddy-Bear-like frog he calls, “Mr. FlipperLovey.”
Crawley is another hench-Croc. Crawley is wiry, nervous and quick. He uses his tail like a super-powered whip – pounding, tripping, and trapping opponents with its razor-sharp scales. Crug attacks with big, punishing wallops. Crawley wears you down with a hundred little stings. Between the Crawley and Crug, they are Cragger’s most formidable foot soldiers.
