Malleus Maleficarum!
301 – The Red Menace

The Red Menace is the Swarmlord and founder of the Apple Cobbler Gang. He is an urchin of Reinhoffer-Ootz type #36A: Face Biter.

Each swarm is headed by a Swarmlord, elected by a simple majority of the swarm.  The Swarmlord’s power over everyday decision-making is absolute. In times of war, though, the Swarmlord may acquiesce some of his powers to the War Chief, generally an urchin who has survived at least two winters and as shown exceptional skill in military strategy and tactics. The War Chief holds no rank during peacetime, but, since urchins effectively live under a constant state of low-level warfare, the War Chief is almost always a highly regarded member of the Urchin. While the Swarmlord remains the official head of swarm even during wartime, many swarmlords are little more than figureheads, with the real power of rule vested in the War Chief.  The Chancellor (sometimes referred to in literature as the Toadie or Moll) is a high-ranking urchin charged with boosting the ego of the Swarmlord at all times.

    It took me too long to realize his nose wasn’t just a wanky eye.

    It looked like he was smiling at first to me, and I was all, “That’s not Red Menace! He’s smiling!”
