That alliance broke up, and all that remained were "The Rat", Jaz, and Jacob. Jacob was replaced by Veronica.


The Rat never played fair. When he was two he'd cheat at Candy Land, in kindergarten he'd steal blocks, in middle school he'd copy other people's tests and homework. People got fed up with him in high school, however, and frequently beat him up or cause him casualties. He never learned better, and never understands why this happens to him.
