This page describes content which, while legally created, was not licensed by the Walt Disney Company. The Mad Cupid of the Euclidean Plane is a written story by Lupan Evezan, illustrated by Aristide Twain. It features the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids, including Companionship-790, Tracker-764, Colonel-028, Dandy-432 and Larrikin-1029, as well as Pessimist's Fog Ship, Doki Dick and the Old Man. The Faction of the Fooling Fish is mentioned.

Description[edit | edit source]

For decades, Tracker-764 has been roving through the Euclidean Plane seeking Doki Dick. However, when a Rift transports both him and Doki Dick to a dimension where a lonely old man needs help saving that world (and many others) from destruction by a natural catastrophe, Tracker has to learn there are more important things than proving his worth as a marksman to Colonel-028!

References[edit | edit source]

  • Tracker-764 has spent several decades in the Euclidean Plane by the time the story starts, and has had his wooden leg for five or six years.
  • “Rain” in the Euclidean Plane takes the form of perfectly regular, and solid, drop shapes falling from the sky.
  • The stars visible in the night sky of the Euclidean Plane are “large, cartoony-looking five-pointed things hovering an indeterminate distance above the ground”.
  • The Old Man was originally a cobbler in his home dimension. After falling into a Rift, he found an empty cabin in a dimension eaten up by a number of Rifts; it was empty but contained a library of books on dimensional science, and he spent his time by educating himself with them (as well as by planting tomatoes).
  • The Old Man learned to create Dimensional Prisms which can capture and stabilise Rifts. They must be made from a specific type of naturally-occurring crystal, which happens to be available in the dimension where he ended up. Foru of another type of Prism (larger and of a different composition) can be used to stabilise a given location and prevent new Rifts from forming there.
  • Dandy-432 tells Pessimist-242 to tell the Department of Rifts about the Rift through which the Old Man entered the Cupid Homeworld so that they can close it.
