Over the past few weeks, I have been listening to lots of music from the Sixties and Seventies. A particular favorite of mine is The Who's 1969 song "Pinball Wizard." I thought, "I'll be clever and make my own Pinball Wizard character." Then I Googled Pinball Wizard and discovered that had been done already (a lot of times---A LOT). With that Wizard in mind, I started thinking of other mythical type characters I could make into human characters. The other logical choices were a griffin, unicorn and a dragon.
I'm not exactly sure what it is that Griffith, Cornelia and Firewall do, but I think that it involves money, and collecting treasure, and being funny. Details, details...
Griffith (based on a griffin) is the main character here and is kind of a grouch. He is voiced by comedian Louis CK (in my mind). I don't know much about mysterious Cornelia (based on a unicorn) except that she sounds like a horse neighing when she giggles. Bold and brash Firewall (based on a dragon) is voiced by DJ Wolfman Jack (who I realize has passed away, so someone will have to do an impression of him or come up with another similar type voice).
While I'm coming up with stuff for these characters to do, I thought I'd push them into the small world of the Internet and maybe Louis CK would see this and be interested in being Griffith. You just never know!
