Kojack comes from a gorilla tribe living in the rainforest. He is the son of the tribe chief. Their tribe has been guarding the orange emerald, which they call the (Orange) Gem, for generations.
Kojack is a muscular brown gorilla with green eyes and two long manes looking like hedgehog spines. He has a rather menacive look. He wears nothing but spiked black shoes.
Ten years later his manes grew out, splitting at his shoulders and making it look like he gained two additional ones. He also has a scar on his face, running through his left eye.
Kojack was a calm, good spirited guy in his youth, but Nega’s invasion caused him to change entirely, becoming stern. He can go on a rampant destruction spree when enraged.
He had and still has a great sense of honor, fighting every of his combats honestly and refusing using weapons. It is one of the reasons he gets along with Lance very well.
Kojack had a fairly happy childhood and while liking to break some rules here and there, had a complete obedience to his father. It is during his daily adventures in his youth that he met his future fiance.
When he turned 20, they were to be married soon, but none of this happened because they were invaded.
The one to attack them was no other than Dr. Eggman Nega. Having heard of the Chaos Emeralds and their power, Nega went after retrieving them all. The gorillas were brave and resistant, but were defeated and captured in the end.
The chief and Kojack went to the cave containing the Gem, ready to protect it with their lives. After defeating many of Nega’s countless machines, Nega sent his most dangerous one on the field, Metal Sonic 3.0.
This robot was much stronger than all the other machines, due to being powered by a Chaos Emerald Nega stole before. The chief and his son fought with everything they had, but it was proven to not be enough. When Kojack was to receive a mortal blow, his father jumped in and got hit instead. While dying, he nominated Kojack as the new chief of the tribe and gave him the duty of protecting the Gem.
The death of his father caused Kojack to snap and to go on a rampage, destroying all the remaining machines and putting the robot in trouble until Nega attacked him in the back. Interested in what he just saw, he captured Kojack to study him.
While they were heading back to Nega’s base, Kojack broke free and jumped out the aircraft into the ocean. Thinking he could never survive that, Nega continued his route.
Kojack was alive though. And after reaching land, he went to search the man he despised. After some months, he came to know the existence of the Peace Enforcers; a group of people fighting evil and mostly Nega, created by Thomas Pirlingham (better known as Max the Fox). Knowing he could not do too much alone, he asked membership. He has become a valuable asset to the group.
Two years later
A year passed and during this time Eggman Nega attacked en masse. Every plan of his was stopped by the Peace Enforcers. On a attack in a big city, Spikes the Hedgehog reappeared and saved the day. This gained him respect from Kojack. After robot-cleaning the town, Spikes was attacked in his back, only to be "saved" by Keith the Echidna. Spikes commented that he was slow, with Keith replying that he doesn't have superspeed. This was the rebirth of Team Atom, Max' former team.
When not saving the world of Nega, they search for their lost ones.
Strengths and Powers
Superstrength: Gorilla’s already have great strength naturally, but those of Kojack’s tribe are even greater, due to radiation from the Gem in the past, making it a natural ability. Kojack is even stronger, because of his family duty to guard the Gem, meaning in theory that each chief is stronger than the previous one.
Great agility: Due to growing up in the woods, Kojack’s ability is higher than the most accomplished gymnasts.
Great instinct: Kojack has a high sense of danger, making him very hard to surprise. He is also a good tracker.
Berserker rage: While he was a calm, good spirited guy in his youth, Nega’s invasion caused him to change entirely, going on a rampant destruction spree when enraged. While he is quite stronger, he also becomes ruthless and cannot see the difference between friend or foe. He shares this trait with Leo, though Leo is far more dangerous.
Spiked shoes: Given to him by Max, he wears those when he is in a city or “stone forest” like he likes to call it. He uses them to be as agile as he would be in the woods, being able to stick to walls.
