Klopalong Hasbenicity ruled the range. He was rude, crude, rough-talking and dangerous. Men and cattle feared him and that's how he liked it. Klopalong had one friend, Ecneralc Droflum. The only reason they were friends was because Ecneralc wrote the stories and Klopalong didn't know what to do until the story was written. Then he'd have to wait until Ecneralc wrote the next story. Ecneralc was kind of controlling in that respect.
More than once Klopalong thought about getting rid of Ecneralc, but, Klopalong had just enough awareness to know that he would be lost without Ecneralc. In fact, Klopalong realized he wouldn't exist without Ecneralc which is more than most people who read the stories realized.
