Ellen Dubin will provide the voice of Prymite Spydera (formerly Empress Webula) in
this new TV animation series.
Biography of Prymite Spydera:
Tragic was the life that was Spydera’s childhood as she was the youngest of sixteen sisters and the runt of
the children. She was picked on, bullied and beaten every day until she cried; just to show she was the
weakest. Their father, Emperor Taque was a kind man, but was out of his league when it came to raising
females, so the rearing was left to the nanny, Webula.
Spydera would often be seen running to Webula’s cave, blabbing about what her sisters had just done to her
… this bothered Webula, so she took Spydera under her wing and began her training in private, away from
the prying eyes of Emperor Taque and the sisters.
With guidance of Webula, Spydera learned how to defend herself. She learned about politics. She learned
about life, but not the life of a submissive youngling with fifteen siblings she needs to answer to … no, she
learned how to be strong, how to be focused and driven and how to get what she wants.
Things began to change for Spydera, through the teaching of Webula, she changed her life. When her
sisters attacked her one night, Spydera showed them, her father and all around her that she was no longer
going to be the pushover that she had been in the past. There was a fight, not a verbal one, rather a physical one. Spydera stood up to them, and quickly then discovered what she had learned. As the fight came to anend, three of Spydera’s sister remained standing while twelve had fallen. This had changedeverything for her, suddenly her father looked at her with pride in his eyes … she became the primary in thefamily; she was destined to become Prymite.
While attending school, Spydera has her first encounter with the rogue, brash Weaver. He was taking militarytactics while Spydera was a star of her political sciences course. At first they did not get along, Spyderabelieved in diplomacy, while Weaver was reckless and believed the force with the biggest gun was destinedto win.
Throughout her schooling, Spydera tried desperately to avoid Weaver, but in the end, they grew closer and
close and Spydera discovered deep down, she had the same beliefs as Weaver. They began plotting and
scheming, but quickly discovered through their plots to claim the rule of the Sectrix from her father, they
would need to wait until his forces are too wide spread and it would take more that brawn to bring down an
Spydera began to see a way. The Forestyans would play well into this. Over the last number of year, it
seems the Forestyans have begun refining Arachnamite, a precious mineral the Sectrix used to make andpower everything. Though it would take many, many millennia to deplete the supply, Spydera began a
campaign that slowly grew. This group, Sectrix United, demanded that their Emperor take action against the
Finally, after years of having her father’s ear, and being the strongest voice within Sectrix United, however,
never being found out, Spydera managed to sway her father into their beliefs and the Sectrix declared war
on the peaceful people of Forestya.
This war should have lasted for many years, allowing Spydera and Weaver to take action when the time was
right, but after only a few years, the war ended with Emperor Taque being captured and used as leverage to push the Sectrix back into their underground dwellings.
At first, Spydera saw this as a failure, but they she saw it for what it was … she began a secret whispered
rumor that her father had lost his will and strength and it was because of him the Sectrix had failed.
Upon his return to WebCity, Emperor Taque was faced with a people that no longer believed in him. They
believed he had been a fool to allow the Forestyans to capture him and even more of a fool to allow them to
use him as leverage to ruin their plans.
Seizing this opportunity, Spydera snuck into her father’s chambers that night of his return and she brought
about an end to his reign … Emperor Taque was found murdered the next morning.
Upon receiving word of her father’s demise, Spydera was deeply saddened but that was a sadness that
would be short lived … snapping to action, Spydera brought all her plans into action and quickly claimed the
rule of the Sectrix declaring herself Prymite Spydera, supreme ruler of all the lands of Ragnok.
Before anything could happen to jeopardize her career change, she declared Weaver her military marshal
and dubbed him Grandsilk Weaver. His first action as master of the Sectrix military, assassinate the three
remaining sisters of Spydera. Once they were gone, there was nothing to stand in her way … well, there was Araknor, but no one took him seriously.
Not ready to strike against the Forestyan’s just yet, Prymite Spydera began plotting with Grandsilk Weaver;
they realized they would need assistance with their plans. Grandsilk Weaver found a scientist would had just
be released from his duties with the Nature’s Senate. Seeing him disgraced by that, Grandsilk Weaver and
Prymite Spydera acted on it, using his own wants and needs against; Prymite Spydera discovered he was
more than willing to participate in their plans. The scientist (Mad Simian) got to work constructing a new
breed of Sectrix Soldier from Spydera’s plans and with that, the ShokSPIDERS were born … well, more like
Now, as her people find it harder and harder to find ample supply of the Arachnomite mineral, Prymite
Spydera begins her new campaign of terror against the surface world. Ruthless to the core, Spydera will stopat nothing to turn the lush surface landscape into a mirror image of the sub terrain Realm of Ragnok.
Andrew Jackson, Ellen Dubin’s love interest in The Collector TV series & in Hank William’s First Nation
TV series, will also be providing voices for N Guard. Andrew will be providing the voices for three of the
characters in this animation series: President Racky Raccoon, Stormfront and Senator Araknor.
Biography of President Racky Raccoon:
As a youngling, Racky Raccoon was an optimistic child always seeing the sun shining even on a rainy day.
He was the type of person who could find a silver lining on the blackest of clouds and his personality was
infectious. He was the joy to every party, well mannered, perfectly spoken and a delight for those around, butd eep down, no one truly knew what a hellion he really was, always finding him on the short stick when it
came to getting in trouble.
Racky was never really what you would call an “A” student while he attended the Chestnut Academy, he
often would rather party than study and that attitude quickly caught up with him. In his final year at the
Academy, he and his parent discovered he was ten credits short of being able to graduate and it would
take two additional years for him to acquire the credits needed. This angered Racky’s father to no end and
he lost it on his son, demanding an explanation … when Racky could not provide one that his father believed
good enough, he caught his wraith. Never really getting along with his mother and father, Racky, who was
now old enough, left home and joined the Nature’s Militia.
President Racky Raccoon Racky served for three years in the Militia where he gained a solid training base and
received additional night courses which allowed him to acquire all the credits needed to graduate. While in service, his commanding officer, General Tortoise saw something in the young soldier and put in
for a transfer to Special Forces for him. The transfer came through and Racky found himself the newest member of Forest Force.
A proud and dedicated soldier, Racky quickly climbed the ranks of Forest Force where he became one of the youngest field commanders to ever serve with the unit in less than two years of service. Racky was one of a hand full of soldiers who were assigned to Mustela. It seems Baron Ironweasel and his Iron Armies were
threatening to attack the people of the Secord Woods. The unit that was sent in was put under Racky’s command and they were to act as peacekeepers. This was where Racky first met Longtail and they quickly became friends. Also, this was where Racky first met Willow. Racky and Willow became very close and within a year, they were married … then on the day Racky and Willow discovered they were expecting,
war broke out in Mustela … Baron Ironweasel and his Iron Armies attacked theBark Bunker.
It was a very quick skirmish that Baron Ironweasel quickly lost, but in the conflict, Longtail was badly injured.
They unit was pulled out as a larger contingent of Forest Force moved in to secure the lands.
Upon return to Hightree City, Racky and Willow settled down. Racky receive and honorable discharge and
he began his political career accepting a position as Mayor Toil’s assistant. This was good for Racky and
Willow, as they were graced with the birth of twin boys, Root and Boon. The Raccoon family was complete
and happy.Things were going great for them until the Sectrix Empire stuck and Racky discovered he was
needed more in the battlefield protecting the people of Forestya. Quickly, Racky re- signed with Forest Force Racky served for three years in the Militia where he gained a solid training base and received additional night courses which allowed him to acquire all the credits needed to graduate. While in service, his commanding officer, General Tortoise saw something in the young soldier and put in for a transfer to Special Forces for him. The transfer came through and Racky found himself the newest member of Forest Force.

Also, this was where Racky first met Willow. Racky and Willow became very close and within a year, they were married … then on the day Racky and Willow discovered they were expecting, war broke out in Mustela … Baron
Ironweasel and his Iron Armies attacked the Bark Bunker and was assigned to Sgt. Longtail’s unit, together again, the heroes of the Ironweasel Skirmish. The conflict with the Sectrix was long and hard on everyone. Battles were fought near and far and Racky, Longtail and the unit were never in one place for more than a few days. It was great, Racky was getting to see places in the Secord Woods he normally would have only dreamed about, however, it was all good, Racky was never home, so his family life was start to hurt and he was missing his boys growing up … but the war had to be won, sacrifices had to be made, he just never realized the negative effect it was having on his family.
Almost six years the conflict with the Sectrix lasted, but it finally came to an end when Boon and Longtail
discovered some information on the transportation of Emperor Taque, the ruler of the Sectrix Empire. It
seems he was going to visit with some of his front line troops, and the Sectrix tacticians were fools, they
were sending his convoy through the Lightning Bluffs, the least defend patch of land the Sectrix had claimed.
Seeing this as an opportunity, Boon and Longtail and the unit moved.
They laid in wait and ambushed the convoy as it moved between the Bluffs. Easily, the unit took the convoy
captive and claim Emperor Taque as a prisoner of the Forestyan people. With this one swift move, Forest
Force brought about an end to the Sectrix Conflict and the enemies of the Forestyan’s were banished from
the lands, sent back to the Realm of Ragnok where they would have to remain forever.
Upon retuning to Hightree City, Racky was declared the hero of the war and was treated as such. He was a
little taken aback by this, but he was happy to be home … he was going to get to spend some much
deserved time with his family … at least he thought he was.
In a meeting, the newly formed Nature’s Senate voted and at a vote of twenty-three to one, Racky Raccoon was named President of the Nature’s Senate. He once thought military life took up much of his free time, now he doesn’t even remember what free time is and that brings him to heads with his youngest son, Boon.
Honestly, Racky can blame the boy for acting out; his mother seems to be more interested in ancient
prophecies and his older brother Root and Racky is unable to really spend any time with the boy … but that
all changes when Willow and Root die while en route back to Hightree City from the Stones of Nature. Willow
lost control of her transport on an icy road and they both perished as the vehicle crashed of the road and
plummeted into the Paw Gully. From that point, Racky made sure he was around for his son, no matter what
was happening and today, they are both very close … too bad that’s about to change as fate and Mother
Nature have plans for Boon that Racky can’t ever know about.
Biography of Stormfront:
Growing up in Hightree City, Stormfront became a war groupie. Often he could be seen hanging out around
Rootknot, the military fortress of Forest Force. He became obsessed with the soldiers and the wars they
fought in. He was so obsessed; he had a complete collection of the Forest Force action figure line which he
still has, sealed away in original packages.
Wanting to be like those he idealized, Stormfront persuaded his mother and father to let him attend the
Chestnut Academy and finally they agreed, seeing that he would receive the best education money could
buy. This was a good thing for their son, only problem was a problem they thought was long gone. Members
of the student body were put off by Stormfront’s heritage. He is Lunorakee, a member of a native tribe from
the dusty plains of the Valecrus Isle. Stormfront found himself being ridiculed and picked
on by his peers, and this pushed Stormfront to become withdrawnSome would say that becoming introverted
was the best thing for Stormfront. He excelled in all of his classes, and slowly, those who once were now
coming to him for tutoring.The friends he always wanted
but never thought he would have, they were now there and they needed him. Graduating top of his class,
Stormfront could have had almost any job in the private sector, but instead, he decided to go into public service and was recruited (by Agent Longtail) into the ranks of the secret service,
better known as F.E.R.N., the Forestyan Emergency Response Network. He was assigned to
protection detail and became the agent in charge of domestic
protection of President Racky Raccoon.
Stormfront is a highly gifted soldier and quickly rose in the ranks of F.E.R.N. until he
became unit commander reporting directly to Director Longtail. At this point, Stormfront was charged with the duty of protecting Boon and his gang, Kat Nipp, Klondike and Quickstep. It was on a mission
to the Caves of Morah that Stormfront becomes aware of the N Guard and Boon and the
other’s affiliation with Mother Nature.
Not much is known about Senator Araknor from prior to the first war between the Forestyan’s and the Sectrix Empire.
Nothing Araknor From stories he has told, we can gather that his childhood was not the most pleasant experience as his mother was could do would please her, so he himself became devoted to the political arena, unlike his mother; he was not driven by a want or need to advance himself, however, just the opposite. He was looking to block his mother’s aspirations of advancement of the young girl she had taken so kindly to, Spydera.
War broke out on the surface, a war that lasted many years, but in the end found the Sectrix defeated by the Forestyan’s due to, as Spydera put it, the weakness of an Emperor far outside his prime.
A proud member of the Sectrix, Araknor (who is a Prymar – Prince) stands for the belief that his people are a proud, true and just race who is driven to make the planet a better place for all. When he witnessed a changing of the guard, so to speak, within the ranks of the Sectrix elite, as he observed Emperor Taque being forcefully removed from leadership, never to be seen from again, Araknor realized his mother had achieved her goal … naming herself Prymite and claiming control of all the
It was at that moment he knew something needed to be done, something he could never hope to accomplish himself under his parents’ watchful eye, Araknor left his people and ventured out onto the surface where he was quickly captured by members of Forest Force … he declared his intentions and
was taken before President Racky Raccoon, where Araknor presented a plan that well orchestrated that should help keep the Sectrix away from the surface. After some debate within the Senate, Araknor was welcomed into their ranks and his plan began.
This plan was an elaborate plan and it took a number of years to really start to work … Senator Araknor formed a group with a number of like-minded members of the Sectrix elite and together, they are working to bring down Prymite Spydera and her evil plans of planet domination. This group was dubbed The Arachnid Council.
Now an honored and well respected member of the Nature’s Senate, Senator Araknor makes his home in the lush suburbs of Hightree City, life is peaceful for him, but like all the Senators in the Senate, they are worried when the Sectrix will strike again … it’s good to know they at least have someone with a little inside information.
