What better sound could there be than the crash of stones raining down on the ground after a well-measured dynamite explosion. This vocation came to Boomstock when he was just six years old. Separated from his discovery class and lost in the depths of the Riotspolis caves, he very nearly got crushed by a rock that had dislodged itself from the cave’s ceiling. It was on seeing the stone smash into smithereens on landing that the revelation came to him. And now as master miner of the city of Riotspolis, he oversees the quarrying and extraction of all the different ores that can be found in the surrounding area. With team mate, Octana, they are the fire and the powder that bring the caves to life, and all with just one goal in mind: to blow the whole thing up!
It was during recent work on the new Clint City subway line that the underground shelter, housing Riotspolis, was drilled apart. This Utopian city, dreamt up by wise men at the turn of the century, could now wave goodbye to its tranquility and isolation. Unsurprisingly upset by this turn of events, the Riotsville Council, led by the Patriarch Pericles, decided that the time had come for them to at last emerge from their isolation and impose their “wise rulings” on this barbaric bunch of hoodlums inhabiting the surface.
