GNAWGAHYDE 

1991

Cobra Poacher

Gnawgahyde could have single-handedly decimated the herds of all the endangered species of Africa, if his fellow poachers hadn't railroaded him off the continent for cheating at cards, being generally obnoxious and smelling bad. He was subsisting on his earnings as a freelance fur stealer when he was recruited by Cobra at an all-night café.

He takes his hunting and tracking very seriously! Gnawgahyde won't bath for a month before he goes out into the bush so the animals will not smell the soap on his body. He greases himself with rancid hog-fat and eats what he can trap and shoot in the wild. Gnawgahyde does this so that the chemical additives of processed foods won't alter his body chemistry and scare off the game with too human a scent. It's a good thing he's basically anti-social!"
