Ballos was a sorceror: magic he knew.
Now kill him. Or he shall kill you.

There once was a boy
with yellow skin
born into a family of magic kin.

His magic was
incredibly strong,
and one day would use his powers for wrong.
I lol'd hard.

Gotta talk about his wife and kids, a loving kingdom... and the jealous king, who tortured Ballos until he had a fit of madness; and the Jenka sealing him stuff ;p

I wanted to make some lines for this, but I can't right now :o Maybe later I'll get creative..

Good song, but for some reason, it plays as kiddy tune in my head. O.O

His missing eye is the eye in the demon crown.
Your comment is on par with my comment,
"The Gunsmith is Misery's father."
... ;p I did it to spark discussion but eh, do you really believe that his missing eye is in the Demon Crown?
p35088-0-ballos.jpg

He's not actually missing an eye is he? I mean it looks discolored rather than missing... And he has plenty of "eyes" to go around, as you see across the island. It could be more like his "third eye" or an extension or byproduct of his influence on the island... I remember this quote :

"Epsilon" said:
I recall someone posting something like this before, stating that Ballos' missing eye gave him a kind of "second sight"; the ability to see what was going on throughout the island through red-eyed creatures. It would make sense, considering just how many there are (Frenzied Mimiga, Press, Pooh Black, Deleet, Rolling, IronHead, Omega, among others). Presuming this is true, this aspect of Ballos' backstory is similar to that of Odin in Norse mythology, who gave up his eye for, "the wisdom of the ages"--he became all-seeing and all-knowing.

Well the third line makes it sound like he was born twice. O_o
Not really. But well, just change the word "born" to "first" and it'll be fine.

About that Booster poem- Total wrongness. A no.

Nice pun.

But actually he's not even related to Chaco and never met her(in the game, at least) so why'd she be in that poem?
