In media

Spring 2015 Dark Storm wrote for the Eagle Standard an article named Modding Legends: Interview with Ngugi.

The Ferrit

The avatar of Ngugi seemingly have a life, and no doubt a fan club, of his own. Acording to the legend the pink-eared mammal is the result from a ferret and a rabbit [rumoured to be the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog] who met an intoxicated night out on town.
The Ferrit first appeared the summer 2011 and have since been seen as, among others, Batman and Sith Lord; any temporary absence has led to immediate requests for his return.
He maintained co-operation with Bubi, ElvenKind's late cat, and they were the foes of the mouse of Mank.
