Proposed Canon

"S'a feeg."

First Appearance: First Intermission 23

Zhopa is a twoll placed in charge of the garrison larder within a few turns of the Battle for Gobwin Knob. He is not a decrypted twoll: he was Popped on one of the first two turns after Gobwin Knob was rebuilt. Zhopa serves Parson Gotti figs and then fabricates a picnic basket for him. Zhopa also indicates to Parson that he might be able to fabricate chairs. Zhopa is first described in Summer Update 23. An illustration for him appeared later, done by Xin. It was also the first piece of Xin's art posted. Later, after providing Stanley with a sandwich, he finds himself promoted to Stanley's personal service. Like Bogroll he has been promoted from Henchman to Lackey. [1] image name not found Please Add to Template Erf-b2-ptext48]Same-site.PNG

Real World References

His name is a Russian vulgarity for "ass", which is also used as an insult in much the same way the American English word "ass" is used. He appears to speak with an accent that would be considered Russian or Slavic on Earth.

In the illustration retroactively appended to the update in which he debuts, Zhopa bears a striking resemblance to Zangief of the Street Fighter series. One notable difference is that Zangief's skin has massive scars (from wrestling with bears), while Zhopa currently has no scars.
