Box of Mint Shupe 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-69.762 and start reading...
Mint Shupe (She/him) is a rather short merfolk, with teal skin and sharklike teeth. Often, he wears haute couture gowns to bat, though she tries to incorporate either the Georgias colors or a part of the uniform somewhere in the ensemble.
During her youth, Shupe was widely known as a mad scientist, who created inventions that ranged from a peppermint milkshake that allows landfolk to breathe underwater to a fifty-story hydraulic drill meant to dig somewhere cool, which ended up collapsing part of the way through it’s ignition. Also prevalent to his supervillain persona was a constant and over-the-top commitment to high fashion, which resulted in the Stiletto Incident of ‘09.
During those years, not a day went by in Atlantis without hearing word about his antics, until on the 19th of ██████, █████, Mint launched an extremely impressive lawsuit that ended in not only the pardoning of all past supervillainous crimes, but also placed in her ownership a commercial plot in downtown Atlantis. Shortly after the lawsuit’s closing, Shupe opened an ice cream parlor there, where he now works happily even after having signed on to the Georgias.
Nowadays, her villainous origins manifest in far more socially acceptable fashion, experimenting with ice cream flavors instead of chemical compounds, wearing gowns onto the Blaseball field instead of to the faceoff with local heroes, and ███ █ █ ████ ███████ █████ ███. However, it is noted that before games, Shupe seems to hype herself up by laughing to herself behind the bleachers at increasing levels of evilness.
Despite no longer being a supervillain, Mint is still quite energetic and enthusiastic about their various jobs and hobbies much in the way he had been during her villain years. She can often be found monologuing away about new flavor combinations in his shop in the dugout, or cackling animatedly at a joke told by one of her teammates.
On the San Francisco Lovers
After finding out about Mint’s love of evil potion-making the Lovers were happy to finally have an inhabitant for the Polyhedrons laboratory and officially signed Mint on as the Court Alchemist. Although technically retired from supervillainy, Mint greatly enjoys creating chaotic little substances to use in a variety of pranks, with Don Mitchell helping out as his go-to partner in crime. The pairs’ usual victim is the perpetually annoying King Roland who Mint thinks needs to be ‘taken down a peg’, Roland, of course, secretly loves the attention. Mint also enjoys roping her roommate, giant demon Alex Horne, into her schemes, sitting on their gigantic shoulders so that he can menacingly cackle at people from up above and also grab things off of the shelves.
Mint quickly gained a reputation as the team's local ‘chaos gremlin’, often running around with more swords than is strictly necessary and which may or may not belong to her, citing the excitement of finally being allowed near pointy objects again as a motive. He is also one of the only players to have any idea ‘what the youths are up to’, perpetually confusing the medieval members of the team, barring Silvia Winner, who is always happy to beat Mint at Flortnite.
