Next in line, the Butcher’s Guild.
A team of bloodthirsty madmen require a strong, iron fisted captain to ensure all orders are followed and discipline maintained. Ox is the ideal man for the job, always willing to dirty his hands if it furthers the interest of the guild.
An Ox is a domesticated bovine animal kept for milk or meat. They are also castrated bulls used as draught animals (don’t tell Ox).
Princess is the unloved mutt the Butcher’s call their mascot. Abandoned with the team by a player who didn’t make the cut, she earns her place on the team by savaging anybody who comes near her.
A popular name for female dogs. Possibly linked to the Flash series, Princess, produced by the creators of South Park.
Boar lives for the thrill of spilling blood, and finds ample opportunity to practice this with the Butcher’s Guild. He will not stop until the opposing team have been violently maimed, or worse…
Either an adult male domesticated pig or a reference to wild boar, known for their aggression and strength.
Beginning his career as a lowly apprentice, Boiler has quickly proven himself a worthy addition to the Butcher’s squad. Whilst only a young lad, his capacity for bloodshed is only exceeded by the most prolific of murderers.
Not entirely sure about the link, but a boiler is a fuel-burning apparatus or container for heating water.
Brisket is considered one of the most desirable players in the sport due to her exceptional talent and good looks. Many a rookie player has come to regret thinking her an easy target for this, as she is well protected by the rest of the team, and more than capable of looking after herself.
Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of a cow. A popular cut of meat that requires slow cooking.
A mysterious women from the far north of the Empire of the Free Cities, Meathook is well suited to playing for the Butcher’s Guild. She is fast as the north wind, and can catch anybody who tries to escape their bloody fate on the butcher’s hooks she wields.
A meat hook is any hook normally used in butcheries to hang meat. Expertly wielded by Meathook.
Shank is a man with a dark past. You could call him a common thug, a thief, a murder and more and still yet fall short. To Shank, a Guild Ball team is essentially a gang that pays better, where he practices his many violent talents on the opposition.
A meat shank or shin is the portion of meat around the tibia of the animal, the leg bone beneath the knee. Shank is also slang for any (usually improvised) knife like object or to stab someone or something.
A tenderiser is a hand-powered tool (usually like a mallet or hammer) used to tenderise slabs of meat in preparation for cooking.
