Stubs the quadriplegic amputee
'Stubs' was my morbid, cynical vision of how I imagined a futuristic shell-shocked veteran could digress after much psychological stress and alienation. Stubs is bitter, cold and amused only by the ironic and the highly cynical. His appearance can partially be attributed to the government's 'open arms' policy that helps disabled veterans find a place in society after returning from the war. However, this policy didn't take affect for several years following Stubs' return. Having the rare opportunity to embrace the 'joys of living' for several years without any arms or legs, 'Stubs' developed a cynical nature and became highly resentful of society. He blamed the government for his condition and he slowly removed himself entirely from civilization once his new appendages restored his self-sustenance. When he finally swore his eternal curse upon society, he was but a bitter shell of his once thin nd cheerful self.
