I’ll collect the king, queen, and knight, and then my revenge will be complete!

Summary

Madkat is the name of a long deceased medieval jester who was replaced by a rival and imprisoned in a dungeon by the king, queen and knight of his time.

While imprisoned, he vowed revenge. For unexplained reasons, Madkat’s spirit came to possess a Kat-in-the-Box which bore his likeness. Over the centuries, this Kat-in-the-Box came into the possession of the shopkeeper at Katzmer’s Curios, an antique shop.

Present day comedian Lenny Ringtail found the Kat-in-the-Box after escaping from the Megakat Asylum for the Insane and Katatonic when he broke into the antique shop to seek a hiding place from the Enforcers.

Ringtail had been committed after having a breakdown when rival comedian David Litterbin had been awarded the host position of an MBC late-night talk show.

Kindred Spirits

"I guess madness just brings out the best in us! Come join me, Ringtail, and Madkat will live again! For revenge against ALL our enemies!"

Upon breaking into the antique shop, the owner confronted Ringtail, and revealed the history of the Kat-in-the-Box.

Noting the similarities to Madkat’s misfortunes and his own, Ringtail became enamored with the object and knocked out the shopkeeper.

Upon doing this, Ringtail saw and heard the Kat-in-the-Box speak to him, and began to really wonder if he was insane.

Rintail accepted the Kat-in-the-Box’s offer, and came to be possessed by the spirit of Madkat. In doing so, he was endowed with supernatural powers that allowed him to twist and warp realty. This included the ability to teleport, conjure objects, and change his size and shape.

With these powers, Madkat sought to take revenge on Litterbin along with the king, queen and knight, later learned to be Mayor Manx, Callie Briggs and Commander Feral respectively.

Madkat exhibited a jovial excitement in his revenge, taking on comedic-themed antics while making numerous puns and jokes. He also took particular enjoyment in tormenting his targets for a period of time before making them prisoners in the Kat-in-the-Box.

Defeat and Aftermath

"I’ll soon be writing a book called ‘Madkat and Me!’"

Immediately after the incident, due to a lack of a guest, Ringtail appeared as a guest on Litterbin’s show, promoting an as of yet written book called “Madkat and Me” that would detail his experience, suggesting a looming newfound success for Ringtail.

There whereabouts of the Kat-in-the-Box afterward are unknown, and it is insinuated that only the insane with circumstances similar to the original court jester can hear and see the animated Kat-in-the-Box.
