Art by Nicolas Chapuis

Penelope
Age 16.

Kingdom: Pierotte.

“Pretty” Penelope is the daughter of Queen Aleta and High King Phillip and is the current High Princess of the Five Kingdoms. Originally from the Valley kingdom of Pierotte, Penelope comes across as a judgmental elitist. The reason she’s elitist is because that’s what she’s been raised to be. All her life she’s been told, “a princess must do this…” and be an obedient wife and queen. She wants to win the Midsummer Recital so she can make a statement that she’s an individual, not a doll on a pedestal. To bring some excitement into her life she disguises herself and sneaks out of the palace from time to time to see what the people she’s ruling are actually like.

So how does the robot invasion change Penelope? Back us on Kickstarter to find out.

Wheeler copy

Wheeler

Wheeler is a Decimator who is sick of the war he’s engaged in with the Centurions. Coming off the assembly line smaller then his fellow Decimators made Wheeler less effective in combat so the Decimator Warlord Tyrannis made him his whipping bot. Sick of Tyrannis’ cruelty Wheeler runs away to the Beyond (or to humans, the Forbidden Woods).

Wheeler gets turned into a robot dragon when he hears Zara’s song. He makes a deal to be her animal for the Midsummer Recital if she’ll change him back. Zara agrees and Wheeler makes his first friend. However, things don’t go as planned. And Tyrannis hates defectors.

Want to see the rest of Wheeler’s story. Back us on Kickstarter.

The first season of “Voltron Force” has wrapped and what a ride it was. From betrayals, trainees, secrets, and new pilots, the series not only resurrected the beloved property, but pushed it into new areas of excitement.

Jeremy Corray is one of the architects behind Voltron’s revival and was kind enough to take the time to talk to me about the development of the series, the origins of some of the twists, and a little “fishing” for tidbits on Season Two. (more…)
