Originally a conqueror Betwixt would become a Destroyer due to the manipulations of The Presence and is currently fighting for the future of Toons in his own way, which puts him at odds with several factions and his attitude still causes friction with Suzie and Betwixt Jr. (though not to the same extent it did when he was a host of The Presence).
Betwixt was born to the early days of animation and was depicted as a small anthropomorphic frog, never gaining much popularity Betwixt would quickly fade into obscurity and was forced into the Land Of Nowhere - there Betwixt would watch (via old projectors) the world progress without him.
Going into a depression Betwixt tried a desperate attempt to be "reborn" and had himself erased, a process that had never been achieved before - upon erasing himself Betwixt was redrawn as an anthropomorphic rabbit and was given a second chance.
Betwixt, in his new form, become an instant success and although never reaching the mega-star status of other toons he was able to keep enough fans to avoid returning to the Land Of Nowhere.
However Betwixt suffered from deep-rooted anger and cynicism following his rebirth and success, still having memories of his former life he began to see the world as shallow and materialistic - his former charm and mischievousness began to warp into dark sociopathic behavior.
Betwixt increasingly dark nature began to negatively effect his relations with other toons as well as companies, unable to find a studio that would work with him Betwixt once again fell into obscurity.
Driven completely mad by the prospect of having to return to the Land Of Nowhere Betwixt tried to do something that would make him remembered forever.
However Betwixt was caught before he could succeed in his plan to fill an entire theatre with laughing-gas and was pursued to the top of a water-tower, his cartoon nature still running strong, his final act was to fall from the water-tower in somewhat of a parody to King Kong - as he fell a portal opened and transported him back to the Land Of Nowhere.
And there he would remain for generations, unable to cope with his exile Betwixt created a twisted world of his own, naming it Betwixt Land - this amusement-park of doom is now Betwixt's vision of happiness and he rules over it with an iron fist: though he still looks to the tear in the sky high above the Land Of Nowhere that leads to the real world.. waiting for the day someone remembers him..
Children At Play
Toon WarsBetwixt is the central antagonist of Toon Wars, a direct continuation of the Last Laugh - this would be the most destructive of all Betwixt's many plans and climaxed in a full-scale invasion of the "real" world as well as a revelation that Betwixt's "madness" was actually due to him being an avatar of The Presence, fulfiling his purpose Betwixt would become The Presence's gateway into the "real" world and almost destroyed both the "real" world and the Land of Nowhere before he was ultimately defeated.
Following Toon Wars Betwixt would become an anti-villain, hated and feared by many Toons and humans for his previous actions but fighting for the rights of fellow Toons he would take to a life of wandering, surfacing every now and then to oppose any who would try and harm Toons or the "Liberated Empire" that Suzie and Betwixt Jr. set up following the collapse of the Betwixt Empire.
PersonalityBetwixt is a strange and tragic character, due to his rebirth he exists as a fusion of two very different beings - kind of a Jekyl and Hyde scenario: once a loving cartoon character who wanted nothing more than to make people smile Betwixt grew depressed and lonely as he watched the world change without him.
Upon being reborn Betwixt enjoyed his success but had been altered by his past memories, which were still active in his mind, he felt that the world had abandoned him in the past due to his appearance and mannerism and began to grow more and more hateful in nature, to the point his mischievous cartoon nature began to alter into sociopathic hatred for all things.
In the end however Betwixt is kind of a like a frightened, lonely and deeply troubled child - all he truly seeks is acceptance in a world that has continually forgotten about him, a world that he was so desperate to be a part of that he quite literally changed everything to be with only to be cast aside.
AbilitiesBetwixt is a toon, he is completely immortal as a result and can warp reality to a near-limitless degree - however he is subjected to the rather unusual but well-known "cartoon physics".
Betwixt is far more dangerous than an ordinary toon however as he doesn't hold back - behind the cute and comical exterior lies a deeply disturbed character and he thinks nothing of using lethal force if provoked.
The side-effect to using his abilities however is that he will often break down into a monstrous state when his abilities are pushed to their limits - this is a trait seen in all Toons but is especially prominent in Betwixt due to his extreme use of abilities other Toons would not willingly use as well as his already unstable emotional state.
The more unstable Betwixt's form becomes the more it also destabilizes reality around itself and it limits his ability to exist in the "Flipside" ("real world") as the damage eventually causes the Land of Nowhere to manifest as a portal and suck him back in, this is a safeguard to stop his abilities from destroying the stability of the real world.
- Betwixt is roughly 90 years old in human terms - having been "born" on Christmas Eve in 1922, his first public appearance having been in 1923: however due to his status as an immortal he appears to be in his mid-20s at most.
- Betwixt could be considered a kind of "thought form" in the sense he is not a real being but a projection of an abstract concept (in this case a fictional character)
- Betwixt's form tends to be that of a monochrome rabbit, roughly 6ft in height and dressed in the style of a stereotypical drifter of days gone by: he has rather floppy ears but they can change to express his emotions.
