History

Early Life

Christian Combs is a comb jelly colony organism. Combs knew nothing of blaseball growing up—as they first hatched approximately 274 million years ago, and shortly thereafter received intelligence from an alien race known as ████████████, along with the rest of their clutch of comb jellies. Combs has since aged, reverted to a larval stage, and been reborn ████ times.

Pre-Blaseball Career

Red Flag Fleet

Combs spent the last half of one life cycle as captain of a junk sailing for Ching Shih's Red Flag Fleet. Beginning their career as a deckhand on the East India Company ship The Marquis of Ely, Combs was captured by Ching Shih in 1809. Noted for their ability to breathe underwater and attention to detail, Combs was soon released and rose through the ranks, eventually coming into ownership of their own junk, the ████. When asked why they took to the pirate life, Combs said, "Ching Shih's code of laws made more sense than the East India Company's."

Early Blaseball Career

11 years after their last rebirth, Combs put together a robot named Macaroni-X44 out of household appliances that fell off a barge. Macaroni-X44 taught them how to play blaseball, although it took a few months for Combs to grow arms.

Season 8

Combs heard that Burke Gonzales of the Mexico City Wild Wings was a renowned former aerodynamics professor. Intrigued by the prospect of sailing the skies, Combs set about drafting blueprints for airship designs. While both were not at bat during the game of day 18 of season 8, Combs and Burke poured over the designs, and at the top of the ninth, they had a eureka moment, confirming that the current airship revision was indeed theoretically possible to build. Bolstered by having a new project, Combs found themselves reinvigorated in the splort of blaseball. However, in the post-game cookout, Gonzales was noted to be a bit distant, and in an interview said, "Christian just reminded me of my old days teaching. Makes a man a bit homesick."

Trivia

  • Combs appeared on season 518 episode 4 of the BBC's Deep Ocean documentary, in which Sir David Attenborough covered the various breakfast rituals of our world's deep sea life.
  • Combs learned how to play the hurdy gurdy in the 11th century, and often uses it to accompany their stories around the campfire. No one is really sure how they keep the instrument, as they seem to always be ready to pull it out when spinning a yarn.
  • Despite being team captain, Fletcher Yamamoto acts as Combs's quartermaster while at sea, while Combs assumes the role of captain. Yamamoto can be often found perched on Combs's shoulders.
