Like all members of The Vvarrior clan, 1006-ε was raised with one purpose in life – to win the SnailRace8000. While still an egg, as is tradition with Vvarrior Clan egg clusters, they were conditioned with videos of the clan’s past glories on the 8-Track and sprayed daily with a secret tincture made from the Azolheria plant – other clans have tried to get the practice banned, but SCEACFOSRA have said that as long as they’re not using illegal performance enhancers they don’t have a problem with this ritual.
1006- ε never knew his parents. Vvarrior clan members are taken from their parents after being laid. The clan considers the love and affection received from a parent to be detrimental to a snail’s strength and speed conditioning. 1006- ε was picked out at twenty – four seconds old as having great potential when he was first to hatch out of the egg, ate it immediately and then cannibalised five of his unhatched siblings.
Since that day, 1006-ε was separated from the standard training practices which every ordinary Vvarrior receives and put on the elite regimen. He quickly excelled there against the other elites, making them look unelite.
1006 -ε swept the rest of the Vvarrior clan away in the 1000-1 trials when he reached competing age after four months. When asked in interview what his tactics would be in the 8-Track, he paused, gazed off into the middle distance for what seemed like an eternity and then looking back with a steely expression in his eyes, replied in a deep and gravelly voice, “Win”. And when the reporter tried to explain that “Win” wasn’t really a tactic, 1oo6- ε responded quickly, “You’re not a tactic”. The reporter left it there.
