Real Name: Yeti
Identity/Class: Unknown - possibly human subspecies
Occupation: Protector of Yak
Affiliations: Yak, Badger
Known Relatives: None.
Base of Operations: Mobile.
First Appearance: The Badger #1 (Capital Comics, 1983)
Powers/Abilities: The Yeti is incredibly strong, and a dangerous hand to hand fighter. He has a bad temper, and can easily fly off the handle if someone crosses him.
History: Unknown. According to the Yak, the Yeti is not of this Earth, and is very old. For a long time he served the Yak as a manservant and bodyguard. He first met the Badger when he accompanied the Yak to America when the mystic travelled there to confront the newly awakened druid Ham. With his hair-trigger temper, the two came to blows almost immediately, but there was never any animosity between the two after that initial encounter.
Yeti occasionally reverts to a feral state when civilisation gets too much for him. This happened again after he returned from the States, and he went walkabout in the snowy mountains of Kathmandu. When IBOB targeted him for blood sacrifice, Yak recruited Badger to find him first. He managed to do so, but only just, and Badger and Yeti were forced to fight IBOB's killers off. Yak appeared to die in a cave in, and so Yeti wandered off on his own. He returned several months later to warn the Badger that the demon Bob had been sent after that insane hero by IBOB, but headed off after delivering his message as he had his own demonic pursuer. His demon finally caught up with him in northern Canada, after chasing him all round the world. But by that point the Yeti had located the Badger again, and they and a set of chainsaws made short work of the monster.
