Sergeant Talon was an able-bodied and loyal Enforcer officer. He is usually seen at Commander Feral’s side. Talon is completely loyal to Feral and always follows his orders without question. A kat of few words, the stern Sergeant normally says nothing more than, “Yes sir!” in response to Feral’s commands.
The Sergeant assisted Feral in trying to solve the mystery of the missing body of Dr. Elrod Purvis. He failed to get much out of the morgue attendant because he was in shock. It was later revealed that Purvis had been revived as the mutant Dr. Viper.
Later, he tried to arrest the Pastmaster as he came out of the Megakat City Museum of History with the Tome of Time, and was almost stepped on by a Megasaurus Rex for his troubles when the sorcerer summoned the huge dinosaur out of a time vortex.
He was at Feral’s side during the siege of the Megakat Tower.
During Mutilor’s attempt to steal all of Megakat City’s water, the Sergeant was dispatched to personally look for the missing Felina Feral, but although he only found her crashed jet and bazooka. He solemnly returned the latter to his Commander, thinking Felina was dead, although it turned out later she’d survived.
During Dark Kat’s attack against the city with his Black Widow, the Sergeant and several commandos arrived at Megakat Memorial in response to a disturbance, thinking the lives of the injured elderly couple there were in danger, only for Razor to reveal they were not only not injured, but not even elderly, handing the duo over to the Sergeant and his men to be arrested.
Since then the Sergeant has played only minor roles in the Enforcers’ efforts to protect Megakat City, all but replaced by Felina as Commander Feral’s most trusted aide. Nevertheless, Feral continues to rely on him because of his competence and dependability.
A version of him (like Feral and Felina, unchanged) exists in the alternate universe.
Like many characters, he (or another sergeant) was slated to appear in the unfinished episode Succubus!, where he would’ve assisted Felina in her investigations and found the dead body of dockworker Geno Furness in the river.
On his model sheets and in most scripts, Talon is simply identified as “Enforcer Sergeant” or sometimes “Feral’s Sergeant” (as in the unproduced script Blowout!). His actual name was finally revealed in the script and storyboards for Destructive Nature.
In the script and storyboards for Metal Urgency, Talon (or another sergeant) is inside Feral’s tank, which gets crushed by the Behemoth, but still shows up alive later. To fix this error, the Sergeant in the tank was changed to a commando in the finished episode. Gary Owens’ dialogue still refers to the commando as “Sergeant,” however.
Another sergeant – in Enter the Madkat and Katastrophe – was originally throught to be Talon with an inexplicable, two-episode redesign, but storyboards for the former finally revealed this was in fact a different character, identified as “Sergeant #2.”
As to whether or not he is related to the prison guard named Talon from Chaos in Crystal, Lance Falk confirmed in an interview that the two are not in fact related and that “Talon” is just a common last name in Megakat City.
