Origin

As a race, the beings of Mojoworld are invertebrate and only accelerated in evolution after the creation of humanoid exoskeletons by the scientist Arize. A minority of invertebrates revolted against assuming bipedal motion and had Arize create a race of humanoid slaves through genetic engineering to carry out their desires.


Having no intention of allowing his sentient creations to linger in slavery, Arize programmed many of them to be more intelligent and have a strong sense of independence. Of those Arize secretly programmed for rebellion some he designed to have superhuman abilities, one of which was the rebel that would become known as Longshot.
