The Platypus Guard was the elite fighting unit of the Misty Island.
Skilled in murder and mayhem, the battle insticts of this unit of fifty
strong were honed to razor sharpness. Each of their furry legs were
equiped with poisoned spurs, and all were equipped with silver
whistles, that when blown, would instantly translate them back to the
palace on the Misty Island. When summoned, it always took them a few
fours to get together, as platypuses were unfortunately not all that
fast on their feet.
During the reign of Simon the Postman, The Honorable Roger was their
captain. This platypus summoned the entire troop in response to Simon's
dilemma. While it took several hours for them to assemble, the Platypus
Guard arrived at the Festeron church during the final confrontation
with Gladys. They rescued the two sister, Y'Gael and Hortense, from
their magical entanglement by the Evil One's snakes.
