Get it? Cause he's a Baryonyx, hahah... heh.
I had a lot of things planned for Star Fox XYZ. And while I can't find it in me to continue the comic at this time, I may as well give you an idea of what was to come.
At some point, I was going to have the group travel to Sauria to take down an Anglar remnant who's creating some... giant dinosaur Kaiju thing in his undersea base, and spoiling Sauria's oceans in the process. The team touches down and meets a few of the tribes. They plan to use the Blue Marine to find the base, but it's hidden to all their sensors an' whatnot. Faye and Marcus spend some time looking after a Tricky-esque character (a Microseratus) who's always wanted to meet off-worlders. As he starts playing near a river, though, he falls in and is carried away. Without a word, Fay dives in to save him. She eventually catches him, but is unable to escape the river's pull. Marcus follows them along the shore until he sees a waterfall. He climbs onto a log hanging over it, and tries to grab Fay's hand. Unfortunately, she's too slippery (come to think of it, I should've drawn her with a glove missing, since it likely would've come off), and the two fall. Marcus is relieved to see that they survive, but they're carried much further down the river before they're finally able to stop. Fay, still protecting the little guy, runs into Barry, a young member of the elusive "River-walker tribe." ...or river runner, or river sail... still working on it.
Fun fact, his voice would sound like Scott McNiel's Dinobot.
These meat eaters are a tad more intelligent than typical Sharpclaw, Redeye and so on, and mainly eat fish. Still, Fay is wary of the big guy. Her automatic translator broken, she uses her limited knowledge of Sauria's native languages to communicate with Barry, which he finds amusing and even a tad cute. Recognizing "Micro" as a friend of the Royal Family, he offers to help them back upstream, but Fay declines and tries to find her way back up to camp herself. Still, Barry follows them a ways, making Fay uneasy.
Night falls, and as Fay and her little friend are settling in for the night, they're stalked and attacked by raptors. After a quick chase scene, just as they're cornered, Barry charges in and catches the attackers off-guard, startling and driving them away just long enough for the three to escape.
Eventually, they meet up with the rest of the Starfox team, who'd organized a search party, and Barry accompanies them the rest of the way, charmed by the off-worlders and interested in their mission.
The River-walkers don't socialize with the other tribes much, but Barry says they may know the way to the Anglar base and convinces the others of his tribe to help the off-worlders and their fellow Saurians out. One of their own has betrayed the tribe and is now working for the Anglar, so that's just yet another reason for them to stop his schemes. Once the Blue Marine is ready, Fay whips up some equipment for the dinosaurs to protect them from the polluted waters and whatever bioweapons now infest them. Basically just some oversized helmets, mounted turrets, and primitive handheld joysticks for Barry and the others to use.
And so, they set out from Cape Claw. The Blue Marine is accompanied by Barry, an Irritator, and a Suchimimus. These characters would essentially be the wingmen you'd have in any normal Arwing mission, and you may have to protect them from enemy fire, similarly.
They eventually find the base, after fighting all manner of prehistoric aquatic monsters, anglar/dinosaur hybrids and what have you, and infiltrate it with the River-Walkers. On the way, they're confronted by the tribe's former leader, a Spinosaurus. When they reach the Anglar, he activates his Bioweapon, and it makes its way to the surface to wreak havoc, destroying the base in the process. With the combined might of the Landmaster, Arwings and armed Dinosaurs, they bring the beast down, clean things up, and bring peace to Sauria once again.
...So yeah. That would've been a pretty fun arc.
That's it for today. More Devilman, tomorrow.
