AKA: Bedford the Great, King Bedford I, General Bedford

OccupationCertified Genius/General Nuisance

He is a penguin. Born in the highlands of Louisville four decades ago. He is alone; there are no others like him. Always good, never evil. For decades he has battled the forces of stupidity, with reading his only refuge. He cannot die, unless you take his penguins, and with it his power. In the end there can be only one. He is Bedford, the Falklander.
