Cannon is a bit abnormal for his species. He's 13, but he still has not metamorphisized into the adult form of a decorated cannon beetle. Aside from this, it is well known by other mascotians that Cannon tends to go off on little adventures every chance he gets, which can be a bit of a problem, you see, Cannon has a strange ability that causes whatever adventure he and his group of friends are going on becomes a reality. This has happened on a number of occasions where the adventure made some Mascotians very uncomfortable. Like the time Cannon decided to play 'Temple of the Bloody Souls' at midnight... In the middle of Spot's house. Now imagine how Spot felt to awaken and see he was suspended over a pit of lava, in a cave by an iron grate, while bloody souls screamed and flew around him.
Cannon's Father, Jethro. He's a bit over protective of Cannon. He may seem a bit docile at times, but if you make him angry, he'll chew you up and spit you out like a stick of gum. This has only happened once, when it did, the resulting aggressiveness between Jethro and Pippy, cause the two to go to war.
This will be the last face you see if Cannon gets injured by you. There is nothing you can do. Each time you 'destroy' him, his rage just increases and so does his size and regenerative speed. Don't mess with a demon masquerading as a cannon beetle. It WILL get messy!
Ever since Cannon found that strange serum in Bones' house, every time night falls on Mascotia, he now becomes a beefed-out vigilante who dishes out justice with his fists, and bladed gauntlets. His battle cry is "Mors vestras malas!" Those who understand, run in fear. Those who don't, vanish.
After a freak incident in Taran's laboratory, Cannon and a few others were digitized and sucked into a war between the Dark Virus, an the gentle Codex, a race of autonomous programs. Even after it was all over, those who were digitized can still revert into their coded forms.
