Cannonblast is a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural armor plating on its back, shoulders, and the backs of its arms. Cannonblast can roll into a ball like an armadillo or pillbug to encase itself in this plating. There is enough space within the shell while rolled up to protect and transport people or objects. When in the form of a rolled-up ball, Cannonblast can increase its rotational momentum and roll into enemies as an attack, as well as ricochet off surfaces. However, it is subjected to the physical laws of reflection and conservation of momentum, meaning that it has difficulty stopping or controlling its direction if it picks up speed. By spinning in the same spot rapidly it can create a tornado. Cannonblast's armored shell is used for a defensive mechanism which means that it is extremely resilient. The plates aren't safe from corrosives but will reflect energy-based attacks. Cannonblast can also shoot energy blasts. The energy blasts are similar to lasers blasts except that they are more lethal and destructive.
The planet Vulpin is a pitch black planet on the edge of the galaxy, which is used as an intergalactic dumping ground by other planets. The ecosystem of Vulpin is poisoned beyond repair, and the Vulpinic Tortugans are one of few species that can live on the planet, the other species being Vulpimancers. They have been mutated due to the effects of the pollution. These mutations involve shooting energy blasts from the palms of their hands and foreheads.
Some Vulpinic Tortugans left Vulpin when it began to be a intergalactic dump and because of it's pollution. They started a new life on an uninhabited planet called Arburia. They did not develop the ability to shoot energy blasts.
