Box of Chorby Short Files

Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-24.889 and start reading...

Chorby J. Short is a Boreal Chorus frog (Pseudacris maculata) sukeban (delinquent school girl) who takes guff from no one. One snide remark from anyone about her height and she whacks them with her bat. Despite this abrasive and aggressive personality, her soul melts when she interacts with wildlife, like the Bison that populate Yellowstone National Park. She would move to the park following an extended delay in her application as it was lost in the shadows (somehow having been accidentally mailed to Seattle?) to participate in a work-study programme with the Yellowstone Magic, where she is learning to be a population ecologist.

Chorby's current participation as a star batter on the Magic is the result of her learning that Blaseball, and more specifically always swinging at everything that comes her way, ball, peanut, person, or otherwise is a healthy way to blow off her emotions at the end of a day. She hopes that at the end of her work-study at the park, she has a chance to continue playing blaseball while interacting with wildlife.
