History

COMMUNITY LORE

The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Theo King, pronounced "The O King," is an elaborate drag king persona.

He hails from the Royal Court of San Francisco where he was adopted into the drag royal found family by the then-queen, Queen King I. King was timidly sneaking around the castle when he found the royal dressing quarters. He snuck in and quickly dressed himself in royal regalia, parading in front of the mirror and calling himself king. He was found there by Queen King I who, rather than being upset at the invasion, was impressed by his natural talents and quickly adopted him into the drag performance troupe/ruling family as her heir to the throne.

After Queen King I was slain in a tragic jlousting accident, King was forced to quickly ascend to the throne and take his place as "The O King". Soon after, he met Knight Triumphant, who quickly became his confidant. They fell in love, and by XX89 King had abdicated the throne to elope with Triumphant, joining them in the resistance movement against the feudal system of the time and eventually joining them to form the San Francisco Lovers blaseball team.

In addition to his drag performance and place on the Lovers, King has a penchant for making homemade jewelry, and is a volunteer firefighter for the Romantic Collaborative of San Francisco. Rumor has it, if you ask him very nicely, he’ll still break out his iconic drag performance to "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy" by Qlueen.

Trivia

  • Fans of the Lovers have been trying to shadow Theo since Season 12 but to no success, earning him the nickname ‘Shadow Dodger.’ Speculation goes that Theo has a fear of the dark and despite Knight’s best efforts to explain that the shadows are in fact, just a different area of the Polyhedron, Theo remains unconvinced.  Reportedly even thinking about shadowing Theo will cause him to overperform and some even theorize that Theo is directly behind various mishaps that have led to the plan being put on hold. When approached about the theory by reporters during a practice game Theo vehemently denied the accusations, merely scoffing and saying ‘Shadow me? I don’t think so darling’ while gesturing at his admittedly impressive outfit and then getting hit in the chest by a pitch.
  • Theo King is a trans man, and often plays up the visual aspects of his transness as part of his drag. One notable instance included glitter tape across his top surgery scars.
