History

Feral was a wild, savage young mutant from the post-war world of the Strontium Dogs who became involved with Johnny Alpha during the events surrounding Lord Sagan's attempt to exile the mutant population of Britain to a hellish other dimension. Feral was with Alpha when he apparently died. According to accounts given at the time he returned alone from the other world, later travelling to Lyra, home of the alien necromancers responsible for Johnny's death, in the company of Johnny's former associate the Gronk.

More recent events though have suggested that the original account was at least partly falsified by Feral and that he and a mutant named Fish Wilson actually brought Alpha's apparently dead body home. Feral then apparently attempted to find a way of resurrecting Alpha, but was unwilling to trade his life to the alien Stone Wizards in return for Johnny's and, in the end, simply buried him under a tree on which he carved a suitable inscription.

Feral joined the Search/Destroy Agency as a 'Strontium Dog' (bounty hunter), but he was later tried and convicted of an unintentional multiple murder on an alien world where he was sentenced to death. (He'd sabotaged the engines of a starship so that it couldn't follow him after he'd stolen its cargo, but he didn't know what he was doing and the ship blew up.) Alpha's former friends Middenface McNulty and Precious Matson tracked him down. With the assistance of the planet's authorities they tricked Feral into believing that they were rescuing him, as this was the only way he would agree to give them the information they needed about Johnny's 'death'. After turning Feral back over to the authorities, McNulty and Matson left him to his fate.

The hapless mutant ended up being force-fed to the point of morbid obesity (thus losing his previous stick-thin figure and turning into a grotesquely bloated parody of his former self), having his nose cut off and being burnt alive. One can't help feeling that Wagner really had it in for Feral.

Notes

According to one account, which may or may not be true, Feral was the child of a British aristocrat and a Lyran sorcerer. Said aristocrat cheated on her noble husband with the sorcerer (summoned by ungodly rituals to alleviate the boredom caused by having too much money), was cast out of her mansion when she became pregnant, was taken in by mutants and died giving birth to Feral.
