The Show:

Biker Mice From Mars was a cartoon series that ran from 1993 to 1996. The title does a fair job of summing up the heroes. In this universe, Mars is not uninhabited. It is actually the home of three sentient species: Sand Raiders, Rats, and Mice (sometimes referred to as Cave Mice). Sand Raiders are hyena-like humanoids and nomadic slavers. Rats are humanoid too with longer snouts than Mice, solid red eyes with black pupils, and no antennae. They are also pretty hostile to the Mice. Mice are humanoid with snouts, large ears, buck teeth, antennae, and tails. They have also been watching and copying Earth culture for a long time.

Mars is an inhospitable planet, mainly due to the actions of another extraterrestrial species--the Plutarkians. Plutarkians (native to Plutark) are humanoid fish with severe body odor. They used up and wasted the natural resources of their native planet, so they go to other planets, buy them, and strip them. If the native species resists, the Plutarkians invade in mass.

This is what happened to Mars.

The Martian government sold out to the Plutarkians, but duped the populace into believing they were invading. The Martian Army was kept away with orders deliberately leading them from the action. The Sand Raiders eagerly joined the Plutarkians, as did some Rats. Some Mice decided that not enough was being done about the Plutarkians and joined the Freedom Fighters.

The heroes of the show—Throttle, Modo, and Vinnie--were in this last group. They fought astride weapon-laden motorcycles to protect innocent civilians. But the Plutarkians still got what they wanted from the planet, leaving Mars devastated and the Mice population nearly extinct.

The Biker Mice crashing on Earth
The show actually begins with our heroes crash-landing on Earth. They find themselves in Chicago and its crumbling disrepair reminds them of things they would rather forget. They rescue a human mechanic, Charley Davidson, and tell her their story (enough to get the show going; other stuff is revealed in flashbacks during the three seasons). Like most humans, Charley didn't know Mars was inhabited but she made a connection between what happened to their home planet and what was happening currently to Chicago. The Plutarkians had moved to Earth.

The Biker Mice's spaceship was beyond repair, so they remained in Chicago battling the local Plutarkians boss—Lawrence Limburger. They also met up with some other Plutarkians and humans on Earth, though the majority of humans remain clueless as to what is going on.

What You Need to Know to Enjoy My Stories:

I like to hope that my stories don't need a complex explanation to be read, comprehended, and enjoyed. But I also believe in hedging my bets. What I really want to encourage people to do is watch the episodes, but I realize that this is not possible for everyone. For a more complete run down of the show and elements contained within it--including some episode novelizations--I recommend Stoker 1439's site from Mars. And if you are interested, here's the list of all the episodes that I use as background for the canon characters. (Hint: it is a list of all the episodes produced and aired.) Like I said before, I hope my stories stand well on their own but this is the back history the characters are operating within.</p>

Original Characters:

Characters that I created. These guys belong to me, and I would prefer it if you didn't use them in any of your stories. But if you want to draw them, please do so and send me a copy. I'm always looking for ways to show my characters since I can't draw. I could illustrate the stories; I could illustrate their entries. With permission and credit, of course.
