Creative Challenge: Hero/Villain with a Shoulder Pet

Shoulder Kitties unite! All pets are welcome. The Devs have stated there will be shoulder dragons as well.

The challenge: make a character with a shoulder pet. Since little has been revealed about shoulder pets, feel free to be creative!
Further you can use classes that will not be available at launch.

Point: shoulder turrets do not count as a shoulder pet! it has to be recognizable as a pet (stuffed or otherwise)

Villain:
Horrible Hagrid: Gunner.
Ranged fire effects.
Defense: Invulnerability.
Shoulder Pet: Dragon "PeeVee" also the firing point for all fire attacks

Horrible Hagrid is a very hairy giant of a man who loves animals - they're delicious. He rescued PeeVee from the dragon colony because the other dragons were being mean to him. The two have been inseparable ever since. Of course in his native world this is illegal, so Horrible Hagrid was banished to the mortal realm. The two have turned to crime to support themselves.

In a few years PeeVee will be full grown. Horrible Hagrid plans to rule the city-state of Titan City by then,
Only Amerikatt stands in his way!

Shoulder pet: cat

It was great being an all powerful evil sorcerer till a spell backfired, now in the body of a cat named Mr. Tiddles it rides atop it's rube of an owner's shoulder trying to figure how to turn itself back.

Name: Trap Spider

Name: Trap Spider

Archetype: Guardian (support) Primary Power Set: Devices
Specialization: Sentinel (ranged offense) Secondary Power Set: Force Blast (I would really like to make a Warden, but they have not announced any Manipulation Power Sets yet, so I'm settling on the knockdowns of Force Blast and will animate them as technological objects and traps.)
Tertiary: Awareness or stealth

No one sneaks up on the Trap Spider. She controls everything around her, but most don't even know it.

She was once a small vicious hunter-killer, but after biting a radioactive scientist during a science exhibit, she acquired the intelligence and proportionate lifespan of the human. Soon she was inventing and constructing all manner of gadgets and gizmos to aid her in setting traps for her prey. Before long, her traps got larger and more complex and she hunted larger and larger prey. She doesn't hunt for food any more, but she can not resist the natural instinct to trap and hunt. Some day she will capture the whole city, or maybe even the world!!!

Now you can find her riding on the shoulder of a robot she built which houses all manner of impossibly complex gadgets and gizmos. Some say there isn't a block in the city that hasn't been staged beforehand by the Trap Spider and her sensory webs spread from Liberty Harbor to Horizon City.

So when you take your trash out at night and you hear something clang or crash; it wasn't just a cat. It was probably Trap Spider setting up an ambush for a rainy day.


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

As is to expected of cats, your example is really a cat with a pet underneath. A cat with a "mount" of sorts :P

It's fitting and I genuinely like this concept a lot.

The Crowfather

The Crowfather
AT: Partisan
Primary: Vampiric Blast
Secondary: Vampiric Emanation
Tertiary: Kinetic Melee
Once an apprentice magic user trying to summon a familiar, a demon of envy had snuck in from the other side and combined with the apprentice's familiar. Over time the little crow the demon inhabited whispered dark secrets into the poor boy's ear, while corrupting ever so slightly with it's own presence. Now the boy has grown to an old age, him and his familiar have set out to claim all they believe belongs to them and them alone.

The Mechromancer's Apprentice

Primary: Lethality
Secondary: Devices

Kayden Baha never thought a Humble Bundle would make her a hero. She just picked up Borderlands because she wanted a cheap single-player looter shooter. But then she picked Gaige in BL2, remembered that lame Sony AIBO her parents bought when she was little, and inspiration struck. A little bit of dumpster diving in the NRD, a little bit of API reverse engineering, and a whole lot of mobility upgrades later, Kayden has herself a little trap-laying, vent-crawling, room-spying puppykittyrobot. And it looks way more adorable than Deathtrap when it takes "naps" on her shoulder.

My Ninja Mastermind (Ku no

My Ninja Mastermind (Ku no Ichi, which was like a 4 dimensional pun the way I had her bio written) used a purple and black color scheme and ALWAYS had a shoulder kitty as a part of her costume. I liked to think that in her case, the KITTY was the character and the human she was riding on was "just another ninja" under the direction of the REAL [b]Ku no Ichi[/i] ... which would translate to English as very literal One Of Nine. I then named all of my Ninja Pets the words for Japanese numbers (San, Shi, Go, Roku, Nana, Hachi) and named the Oni "San" ... which of course made him ... Onii-san (which is the Japanese word for Brother) ... or meant that his actual name was "Honorable Two Three" (O is an honorific, Ni is the number two, and San is the number 3) ... so once again, multidimensional pun bonanza.

Cadence is a Poki Dragon

Cadence is a Poki Dragon

Cadence is super protective of her owner Grace. Cadence saved Grace when she was young. Some bullies from school followed her home and cornered her in an alley. Cadence was looking for food when she saw what was happening, she was young too but she had fire on her side. Ever since that day, Grace and Cadence have been inseparable. You'll usually see Cadence resting on Grace's shoulder, or perhaps taking a nap on her head, or even poking out of her hoodies pocket. Grace vowed to get tougher so that she could protect Cadence as well.

Fire Ranged Attack(Emanation Point: Cadence)/Super Agility or Solid Form(undecided)
