Patrick Hellen

PATRICK was formed when a meteor hit a dinosaur fighting a robot as they both sank into a volcano. The subsequent creation forced him into a coma that he did not awaken from until 1979. He's since roamed the Universe with his capuchin monkey Ampersand, created the fine art of sarcasm(like you didn't know), and is on the short list for Obama to make him Chief of Awesomesauce or the Secretary of Rock Band. If you'd like to rock, or compare Monkey stories, say howdy at
