Lead Guitarist, vocalist, and co-founder of the Funky Heroes, brother of GFUNK. Sustained a skull fracture that left his head flat on top.

LEON the LONG HEAD PEON

LEON the LONG HEAD PEON is the Bass player and provides a subterranean deep voice now and then. He is a member of a race of very tall, peaceful, black beings living in a subterranean liquefied turquoise environment beneath Planet Wo! where breathing is a mental function only. He stands 11 feet, 8 inches tall and has a tongue that can extend the same length. His Bass Guitar was made from the finger bone of a colossal dinosaur and is transparent, and is a viewing portal into the nearby sky. You can see into outer space when you look at it.

THE MOONCHILD

The Moonchild is the ultra-talented keyboard wizard of the Funky Heroes. And he actually is a wizard. His origin is the Rus Gib moon orbiting Planet Wo!, one of 11 moons orbiting the planet. His body glows a bright pale yellow, lit from his spirit within, as do the bodies of all the members of his small tribe. His keyboard is built into a fully functional disc-shaped mini spacecraft that shines a bright spotlight down on the stage, highlighting the Funky Hero of his choosing

ERDNA SIRISO

Erdna Siriso comes to The Funky Heroes from the planet Jupiter in the Solar system. He is a soul incarnation of Willis O. Cyrus, occupying a body in a different atmosphere. He has six fingers on each hand, and seven toes on each foot. His instrument - Ratiug - has an orb attached to it that extracts the pulse from the local planet's core and synchronizes it to calibrate all the instruments in the band. It also displays a holographic image of whichever heavenly body it is currently on. It also produces a fully functioning hologram of a spherical speaker system that projects sound a full 360 degrees in all directions. In addition to commandeering the Ratiug, Erdna produces psychic vocals, by which he never utters a sound, but projects the words and tones telepathically.
