Wrigley
Race: decrypted Men
Faction: Gobwin Knob (formerly Unaroyal)
Class: Stabber (Spearman)

[edit] Proposed Canon

First Appearance: First Intermission 34

Wrigley is a Unaroyal soldier. A stabber-class Infantryman, he was a spearman. He served many turns, mostly as a guard, in the City of Unaroyal, and then travelled with Royal Crown Coalition forces to Unabrow, Unatard, Bohica, and Warchalking. He took part in only two battles, both at Warchalking, the first when Coalition forces (mostly Marbits) took the city from Gobwin Knob, and again as the defending Garrison when Gobwin Knob retook it. In neither battle, nor at any other point previously, did Wrigley ever stab or croak anyone.

Wrigley was croaked by a Gobwin Knob Knight in an execution of all the prisoners after the reclamation of Warchalking by Gobwin Knob. He was then decrypted by Wanda and joined in the invasion of Spacerock. After the loss of Captains Ford and Twenty on Turn 75 AW, his unled stack attacked a Jetstone infantry stack led by a Level 1 Warlord, and Wrigley finally got to use a spear.

[edit] Real World References

A reference to Wrigley's Spearmint Gum(Wrigley the Spearman). Furthermore, Wrigley never used his spear; therefore, Wrigley's spear was mint.

Also referring to Wrigley's Doublemint gum, since he has been "minted" or created twice, thus Wrigley has been double minted.

Wrigley Field is home to Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs, who are famously "cursed" and have not made an appearance in the World Series since 1945. This futility is perhaps referenced in Wrigley's having been a Stabber all his life without stabbing anything.

The name Wrigley and profession (spearman) might also be a reference to the phrase "wriggling at the end of a spear".
