Marksmanship-522 and the Multi-Dimensional Race is a written story by Lupan Evezan, illustrated by Aristide Twain. It features the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids, and specifically the individual Cupids Marksmanship-522 (in his debut) and Bibliophile-962, and also features, in their debuts, Lilathia and Brutus. Lord Thymon is obliquely referenced.


What starts out as an ordinary day for Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids member Marksmanship-522 quickly unravels into chaos as he is kidnapped and forced to judge an interdimensional race between two feuding aliens.


  • Marksmanship-522 is known as one of the best marksmen of the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids.
  • Marksmenship-522's past endeavors include having led the team which romanticised the Zyargaff Beast in Dimension 42µ and having fired the apparently-famous first shot of the Second Great Noodle War.
  • Brutus and Lilathia live on a dusty, nameless planet near Earth in the Prime Universe.
  • The species of Lilathia and Brutus have been at war for centuries, although they are the only two left fighting, as everyone else got bored and took a vacation.
  • Lilathia and Brutus each owned a type of transport vehicle which can fly through thousands of dimensions in a fraction of a second, referred to as a Speedster Ship. Lilathia later gave hers to Marksmanship, who gave it to the Department of Transportation.
  • The locations visited by Marksmanship and the aliens include: Duckburg, the Void, Dimension ^6-Q, the Cupid Homeworld, the 2017 Continuum, a dimension in which the events occurring were nothing more than a story (seemingly the real world), a dimension of their own creation, a dimension inhabited by fish people, a cluster of dimensions in which all events were the same as in the other dimensions visited but occurred a few milliseconds later (until Marksmanship's visit, after which things were very different), and a dimension inhabited by anthropomorphic root vegetables (where they accidentally created french-fried potatoes).
  • The Cupid Intelligence Agency contains a Department of Completed Assignments and a Department of Transportation.

Continuity Edit

Behind the scenesEdit

This short story was released in May of 2019 on the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids website and later collected in The Quintessential Cupid. It was the third fully narrative short story released there and the first by the Cupids' own creator Evezan.

It marks what appears to be the first in-universe mention of the term 2017 Continuum.
