Primary Canon HistoryEdit


While very brief, you could tell he wasn't a tough guy and seemed a bit like he admired the Ghostbusters. He retrieved the Ghostbusters from their prison cell and informed them Mayor Lenny wanted to see them because the city was sinking into chaos from the impending arrival of Gozer.
