June 2019 - Azeban the Trickster!

Design notes from Chris:  

Here's a first look at Azeban.  I've been following the absolutely hilarious memes with "evil raccoon" coming down the social media river.  I started looking into raccoons because they're notorious for messing with caches and even carrying them off.  It didn't take long to find out a couple really interesting things about raccoons... first, that they're only native to North and Central America.  The coons found in northern europe and Japan were actually purposely introduced and/or escapes that turned feral.  They've been here for thousands of years though and are deeply ingrained in the legends of Native Americans.  The Raccoon, Azeban, is the demigod/deity of tricks, jokes and pranks in their pantheon of spirits similar to Loki in Norse Mythology.  He's constantly up to something, whether getting in a shouting match with a waterfall, losing a race to a boulder, capturing the entire kingdom of crayfish or just plain messing with humans for the pure childish joy of excellent pranking.  He's always out to cheat the system, cut the line, circumvent rules or just stir things up out of boredom.  He's not malignant, just itching to stir things up.  He's clever, motivated and slightly grumpy all the time about being short and fat when he used to be the fleetest, long limbed racer in the the forest.  The stories are many, entertaining, always amusing and generally end up with Azeban coming out way on top or way on bottom, but never just in the middle.
