Background InformationEdit

Past of KowalskiEdit

Life & Ban from AntarcticaEdit

The Penguin Family Tree

In 1930, Kowalski was born, he was the first of the Penguins to be born, he lived in Antarctica, to the age 13, he was stronger, but not that smart, Unfortunately, After winning the 1942 Hockey Championship, Kowalski unwittingly used a word that was illegal to use in Antarctica, Kowalski was banned from Antarctica by the Alpha. To enforce the ban, The Omega escorted him to an iceberg, Kowalski was surprised, shocked to find his teammates pushed him away from Antarctica, He forever remembered the sight of his parents before Antarctica was out of sight.

Life at Central Park ZooEdit

Kowalski's iceberg hit the banks of the New York Creek on Manhattan, New York, Nearby fisherman called the Zoo & Kowalski was taken to the new habitat, In 1945, The Otter family moved in with a daughter, Kowalski learned about the Zoo & devoted himself to science, Unfortunately, Because of his lack of smarts, he, instead of producing the good results, ended up causing several chemical explosions, which nearly killed him.

Britain's TitanEdit

Kowalski learned of the Clone Wars & decided to be a Titan & helped defeat the Sith & the Separatist Alliance, He met Jake, who soon became Darth Vader & invaded the country's. Kowalski went into hiding & returned to the Central Park Zoo, where he hid from the Dutch Empire. Kowalski did an experiment in 1955, which caused an explosion which knocked him out, filling him up with intelligence, Unfortunately, the explosion resulted in draining him of his strength.


Memory TestingEdit

Skipper was born in 1955, Unfortunately, His father was Darth Vader & he lived in Antarctica, which had lost several islands such as the Penguin paradise of Hoth, His mother, Louise, moved him into hiding, In Britain, Kowalski received word from his aunt & got her to Britain, Skipper was memory tested to make sure he'd have no memory of Darth Vader, Skipper lived in Antarctica for 13 years.

Shipping to the ZooEdit

Kowalski finally met Skipper in 1968, they became friends (unknown to Skipper that they were related or that they were cousins)

Arrival of RicoEdit

Rico arrived 2 years after Skipper, like Skipper, Rico was memory tested & then lived in Antarctica for 14 years, then, he met his 15 year old brother Skipper & Kowalski, They met the Wolves, savage wolves who were determined to destroy all enemies.


Private arrived last & was 12 when he arrived. He learned from Skipper & Kowalski how to be trained for military


In 1971, The Penguins planned to dig their way back to Antarctica, but the Zoo planned to ship them to Kenya Wildlife Reserve after they failed to get out because of a zebra they met named Marty, they hijacked the ship to redirect it's course to Antarctica, accidentally losing 4 passengers (1 of them was the same zebra just mentioned), They met up in Madagascar & the Penguins made a deal to fly the four & two lemurs (Three, actually, because a third got onto the wing of the plane), since the boat was out of gas. The third lemur (Mort) ended up causing a plane crash & landed them in Africa, The Penguins tried to rebuild the plane, while the Dark Age had struck the Watering Hole. The Penguins left to go back to the Zoo.

Safety Protection Act (1970)Edit

The Safety Protection Act policy was a policy that forbidden the rights of a young penguin with low experience to be put on missions, As a protection act, licenses were issued to penguins, which in 2038, The Lemur Council would form a committee to debate recruits. According to Jake, The licenses provide identification for each penguin personnel, The licenses were issued a requested age & experience training level to successfully become a Penguin, The Safety Protection Age was set to the age of 13 so the penguin must be at least 13 years old & experienced a 90%+ interval of experience training points to accumulate their licenses as details omitted from Hard Boiled Eggy explains

Criminal Discipline Protection Records (2036-2050)Edit

Criminal Discipline Protection Records were established files that protects young or unknowing personnel from being taken into the hands of the Lemur Empire & sentenced for a crime, the records will prevent the incident of the penguin from a horrible punishment by the Lemur law, but it will create a discipline course for the penguin & will demote their ranks to top secret areas, As an example, James unknowingly triggered the WOPR, but after the commotion died, His protection records were issued in a Lemur Council meeting to keep him in the hands of the Penguins away from painful punishments the Lemur Empire would set.
