Weapon: Eye of Bastet Amulet
Biggest Fear: Leaving his team behind
Thriller is the Captain and mentor of The Scare D. Cat team. He was once a lab-cat owned by a British Scientist named Dr. Ramis who discovered the awakening of an ancient swarm of dark, parasitic spirits determined to cover the world in darkness. With Thriller by his side, the Dr. also learned the long-lost Egyptian Secrets of the CAT’S EYE: A mythical ability that allowed cats to use their glowing eyes to expose and destroy these fear hungry parasites.
The Government soon took interest in the Dr.’s paranormal research and took over his findings, creating a top secret military branch called the SCARE DEFENSE CORPS. With the help of Ramis and Thriller, they trained a small team of lab-cats, and developed hi-tech cat weapons to aid them in their paranormal research. But the military got too ambitious.
Scared D. Weapon: Eye of Bastet Amulet
Late one night, during a dangerous investigation of a dark portal, the experimental cat team was tragically lost, and Thriller was wounded, losing his Cat’s Eye abilities. The Scare D. Cat program was deemed too dangerous and shut down. Dr. Ramis was betrayed and imprisoned along with his research, leaving Thriller abandoned and left to fend for himself in the Dr.’s old manor.
Alone, battered, but with a ray of hope, and the last remaining Scare D. Weapons buried within the depths of the old laboratory, Thriller discovers a group of abandoned young cats worthy enough to train and pass on his secret knowledge. Together they are THE SCARE D. CATS (Scare Defense Cats), here to secretly defend the world from Fear Creepers set on ruling the world in darkness.
Specter is compassionate, level-headed, and has strong psychic abilities. When Specter was young, her six year old owner Melody was her entire world. Young Melody was haunted by a Closet Creeper that would steal her breath in the night. Specter’s natural Cat’s Eye instincts helped her fend off the creature during the attacks. Unfortunately, Melody came down with a mysterious illness that brought on severe Asthma attacks, and her doctors diagnosed her with an allergy to her cat Specter.
Melody’s family tragically had to take Specter to an animal Shelter. Specter knows that there is something haunting Melody, and could be the real reason why she has these breathing attacks. Fortunately, she meets a group of abandoned misfit cats much like herself, and together they form the Scared D. Cats to help Melody, and defend children from the dark beings and anxieties that haunt them.
Biggest Fear: Not being good enough
Scratch’s devotion to his team, along with his bravery, gained him the rank of team leader. Scratch was born in an animal control shelter and had his claws inhumanely removed as a kitten. As a result, his paws were left scarred and he lost the use of his left paw. His mother took great care of him, but they were torn apart when she was adopted, leaving him to fend or himself as a helpless kitten behind the tough bars of the animal shelter. His disability made him less desirable than the other animals so he was never chosen for adoption. This gave him a deep yearning for purpose, and a reason to help other helpless and scared animals who’s fates ended up inside the cold shelter.
He inherited the powerful “Cat’s Claw” weapon from Captain Thriller, which now gives his left paw regular mobility, and allows him to use bionic claws; something he’s only envisioned in his dreams. Scratch acts confident and takes initiative, but his disability and never being chosen for adoption makes him secretly insecure. Something that constantly plagues him to this day, but his team helps him remember where he truly belongs: as the leader and defender of The Scare D. Cats!
Cali and his mother decided to go looking for them, but on their journey, they were attacked by predators. Sadly, Cali’s mom sacrificed herself to save the young cat. Orphaned and alone, he continued on with his search, fighting to survive in a big scary world, until a serindipitous chain of events led him to his long-lost destiny: The Scare D. Cats.
CALI "JUNIOR" JONES
STORM CLOUD "STORMY"
She has one, uniquely-colored, pink eye, which she’s constantly mocked for on the streets. She is ashamed and thinks it brings others bad luck. Luckily, The Scare D. Cats help her realize she has the family and support she has always desperately longed for. Her appreciation for her new family makes her a strong and loyal team-mate.
Butler thinks he’s God’s gift to kitties. He’s sarcastic, tells a lot of “litter box” jokes – and acts like he always has things in control, but seldom does. Butler was born in a wealthy home among pure-bred cats that were pampered and sold for profit by their owners. Unfortunately for him, he was born a mixed-breed cat. His owners didn’t see any true value in him as a mixed kitten, so he was tied in a plastic bag and buried in a dumpster one cold morning. Since then, he grew up on the streets and uses his wit to cover up his perceived shortcomings, and his deep longing for a true family.
He wears a bow tie that was given to him by his mentor, a street-smart swindler named TOMCAT that saved him and took him under his wing early on, but tragically lost his life when Butler was still a young cat. Butler is a handful, but is a strong fighter, loyal and good at heart. The Scare D. Cats can always rely on his wits, and are able to make him feel like he finally has a family and home to call his own.
Scared D. Weapon: Proto-Sonic Blasters
Munchy is a large, hefty, Maine Coon cat, and a natural talent with technology. He is constantly fixing and updating the team’s Scare D. Weapons and cat gadgets. He tinkers and puts things together to create new inventions that help the team on their missions. Munchy is strong, very friendly and playful, but his absent mindedness, strong appetite, and selfish instincts cause him to make wrong decisions at times – which constantly leads him and the team into trouble.
Munchy lived with a lonely, elderly cat-lady who had a disease that caused her to slowly forget who she was. She would wander around their house, lost and afraid and ended in an elderly home. Munchy went to an animal shelter, where he finally found new meaning, and a family with The Scare D. Cats.
The only defense against them is the light from a cat’s eyes, which can illuminate these creatures, and even destroy their dark core. Fortunately, there are brave guardians like the Scaredy Cats that will stand together and defend children from these frightening monsters.
His main objective is to bring the darkness to our world and dominate life as we know it. The Scaredy Cats know he is a great threat to humanity, so they must unite together, as a family to try to stop Phobeous and the hate filled army of Fear Creepers that listen to his every command.
