Known for his snarky, trigger-happy personality, Rocket Raccoon first appeared 10,000 years in the future as a mysteriously helpful, if not annoying, woodland creature on planet Hailailae. Since then—or maybe before then—he has become the most well-known trash panda this side of the Keystone Quadrant
Don’t be fooled by his standoffish and morally ambiguous bravado, this tactical genius will put his hide on the line for his friends and the galaxy they defend.
A native of the Keystone Quadrant, Rocket Raccoon began his life as a protector of an unidentified humanoid race known as the Loonies. They came to the planet hundreds of years prior when psychiatrists, searching for a place to house and study their criminally insane away from the contempt of everyday society, founded an asylum on planet Halfworld. Wanting their new environment to be as friendly as possible, the founders brought furry creatures to comfort their patients while they built robots to help care for them. For years, the psychiatrists studied patients on Halfworld before returning home and leaving their patients under the sole care of the remaining robots. As time passed the robots became sentient and longed to leave Halfworld. They genetically engineered the Earth-like animals, creating humanized caretakers to function in their stead, and withdrew to build a ship capable of breaking through the force field surrounding the planet—another security measure left behind by the founders.
As commander of the Keystone Kops, Ranger Rocket paroled Halfworld driven to protect the Loonies and animal inhabitants alongside his partner Wal Russ and ladylove Lylla. He knew no other way of life until a big green guy fell from the sky and gave Rocket his first glimpse at life off-world. Not long after this encounter a war broke out between groups of Halfworld’s animal civilians. During his attempts to quell the fighting, Rocket learned the truth behind the creation of the anthropomorphized animals of Halfworld. The escalating fighting prompted the robots of old to return to the asylum and, with the help of his friends and an illustrious toy maker, Rocket cured the Loonies putting an end to the war once and for all. This allowed for Rocket and other residents to leave Halfworld in search of new destinies while the newly sane human inhabitants created a world of their own.
Or so he believed…
