coincidence..i think not.
one dark winter night, a small rodent like creature arose from a crevice in a post-apocalyptic world. this creature rushes home to see what had happened, and notice his family had perished. filled with anger, mr. badger as he's most commonly known as, swore to avenge the death of his family with striking force...and vengeance!
...and then he just said screw it and made a clan named the vengeful badgers and then they kicked ass.
