About Drill Sergeant

Thousands of years ago, Drill Sergeant was created by the ancient Arkeyans to bore through their diamond mines. He eventually became an ancient piece of Arkeyan apparatus like many other related artifacts, left to rust underground. Centuries later, Skylands dirt shark Terrafin was burrowing through the earth when he struck something solid. Terrafin tugged the artifact above ground and dragged it off to show Master Eon. Eon muttered a few magical phrases. There was a clunk, then a whirr, and then… KACHUNK! Drill Sergeant clattered to life with lights blazing and engine revving, Drill Sergeant turned his attention to Terrafin. By Arkeyan law, he was sworn to serve the shark for all eternity.

Terrafin’s first order was simple: ‘STOP FOLLOWING ME.’ But it’s one that Drill Sergeant has found tricky to compute. Without an Arkeyan in sight, Drill Sergeant found Skylands a bit senseless. So Eon signed him up, and his drills are now used for death blows against evil.

Character Description

Like many Arkeyan artifacts, Drill Sergeant was buried for centuries – a long forgotten remnant of an ancient powerful civilization. It was only a chance collision with a burrowing Terrafin that led to his systems firing up again. By Arkeyan custom, Drill Sergeant was then obligated to become Terrafin’s servant. This didn’t sit well with the dirt shark, so his first order as master was for Drill Sergeant to not serve him at all… a command he continues to follow zealously to this day.
