God day to you, brave explorer!
After many years of traveling through time and space, servicing duty in the 1st quadrant unit of the Andromeda Alliance, I am proudly presenting you some of my specially designed equipment well needed in your extraordinary everyday missions.
Carefully selected essential tools, weapons and armor pieces all with built-in protective force fields will give you best chance to survive in the unpredictable situations. Invading aliens? Thanks to a great mind Nikola Tesla we have the most powerful ray guns in the universe. Leaking spacecraft? Harry Wesley Coover's super paste can fix it in no time. Emergency hatch jammed and doesn't open? There's nothing that laser can't cut, thanks to my friend, Theodore H. Maiman. We though of everything here.
Yes, I'm a hedgehog. My real life story has begun in the year 2137 when I was 15 years old. I escaped from high security research facility where I was born, genetically modified to exceed my lifespan by factor 10. My intelligence in fact isn't so much above the average of the hedgehog. The only difference is, I had a chance to learn and evolve over the years. You see, most of the other representatives of my species live to an age of 6 if lucky and they spend all their time searching for food and sleeping. Human babies aren't considered competent enough to go to school by the age of 7 for that matter.
First years were horrible. As a "lab rat" I had zero experiences in finding the food and shelter. I remember, when I first saw a daylight in the morning I escaped. Cold breeze touched my spikes and it almost made me to return back to the laboratory. But the craving for exploring this strange world, you call outside, was too strong.
