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-53.71 and start reading...


The Baltimore Slun has reported that Best began life as a Nlordstrom store mannequin. Witnessing the horrors of capitalism, while unable to move or act, imbued them with a deep rage and crime-thirst. It is not clear as to the exact details of the phenomenon that gave Best their life, but a number of corroborating witnesses have recalled the exact moment with a startling clarity: multiple crab legs sprung from the mannequin as it jerked to life without warning, promptly destroying the store front.

Early Life

It is rumored that Best emerged from a heavily wooded area carrying a bat, and walked in a straight line until they reached the Crabitat, though how he scaled the colossal crab guardian is unknown. Because of their preparedness, extra limbs, and air of mystery, Best was given a shot at batting practice, where a hitting coach remarked, "Wow, you're prepared and mysterious. Show me what you've got."
