Long before the creation of the portals, the distant peaks and valleys of the great Wowsnatch Mountain Range were once uncharted and dangerous lands where only the bravest explorers dared go. One such explorer, the Great Tenzing Webley returned from a year long expedition to the Wowsnatch Range, telling incredible tales of a wild tribe of Funkey he had discovered while exploring its highest peaks.
While lost in a terribly fierce blizzard, Tenzing saw a savage looking hairy Funkey taking a casual nap in a frozen bed of snow. Being awoken from a leisurely afternoon nap, this strange new Funkey was angry to say the least, and immediately let out a fearsome roar. Terrified, Tenzing reached into his web pouch, and grabbed the only thing he could find. He held it out, and said “Uhh… I caught you a delicious bass.”
Living on the peak of a mountain, the Bomble’s diet consisted of nothing more than snow-cones and ice-cubes, and Tenzing’s gift of a tasty bass was the finest meal the Bomble had ever tasted. Tenzing spent the next year living with the Bomble, as he called them. The Bomble took Tenzing in as one of their own, taught him their language, and even let him participate in their nightly laughing ritual they called the Big Hoot; Basically, sitting around the fire, passing gas and talking sports. Tenzing loved that the most.
Of course, upon Tenzing’s return, with no evidence that these “Bomble” actually existed, many a Funkey did not believe his wild tales of savage mountain-dwelling Funkeys. For years, other explorers tried in vain to prove the existence of the Bomble, but it was not until King Sidd’s dirigible appeared above Funkeystown, that the existence of the Bomble was finally proven.
With a promise of unlimited fish dinners, Sidd convinced the Bomble to leave the frigid homes and travel to the Hidden Realm. Using their brute strength, and a fighting style they called Icebreaking, the Bomble have become fearsome competitors, fighting for the entertainment of the Oni in their great Oni Dojo.
