Biography

Don Karnage is a red wolf and the cunning leader of a band of villainous Air Pirates. He is renown for his strange jumble of a French, Spanish, and Italian accent, and his misappropriate use of the English language. Karnage fancies himself to be a swashbuckler, dashing and debonaire, but he's still a dirty rotten scoundrel, though he's really not evil, per se. He considers himself a throwback to the image of a romantic hero from earlier times in his native country. He has a tremendous ego, which he constantly trips over. He is not overly intelligent, and very quick to temper. At times he has to work with Baloo, such as when himself and Baloo are literally stuck together due to a super adhesive.

When Baloo's larger arms are shown, Karnage claims he has been working out to fool his underlings. He and his "loyal" band are all wanted criminals in the fortressed city of Cape Suzette. Noted among his followers are Dumptruck, Hacksaw, Ratchet, Gibber and Mad Dog. Kit Cloudkicker was once an Air Pirate as well. His secret hideout, Pirate Island, is located inside a volcano somewhere near the coastal city. His Air Pirates often patrol the outskirts of Cape Suzette in his flying fortress carrier called the Iron Vulture. There they lie in wait within the clouds for an unsuspecting pilots to pass so they can run an air raid. Karnage and his air pirates are a constant harassment for Baloo and company, as well.
