REGEN is an earthy, pragmatic, drug smuggler who cares little for anything but money, beautiful women and his own highly unusual pet. The animal is a skeen, and they are usually shot on sight for the pests they are. Most people marvel that Regen managed to tame such a nasty creature. On top of everything else, he named the skeen HITLER after a 20th Century Earth dictator with a personality as evil as any skeen’s.
SKEEN HITLER performs several tricks, most of them involving the removal of one or two fingers from an unsuspecting sucker in some low class bar. He also has a penchant for attracting the attention of lovely ladies, and on several occasions, he manages to pull Regen’s chestnuts out of the fire and save the day.
They have several adventures together while Regen seeks the funds needed to retire to the planet of his dreams. He finally succeeds, but retirement doesn’t last long before he’s talked into a gun running scheme. It turns out the rebel buying the guns is a princess he helped out in a previous adventure.
A traitor in the princess’ army sabotages Regen’s ship, and he winds up on a planet ruled entirely by women. He falls in love with HERION, one of the women there, but the ruling council insists he leave the planet as soon as his ship is repaired.
He goes back to running guns and helps the princess regain her throne, but the memory of Herion calls to him. He uses a special device she gave him to navigate back to the planet of women and asks to stay. After a thorough mental and physical examination and an extensive background check, he is allowed a hearing on his request before the Ruling Council. The vote will be close, but Herion suggests a unique use for Regen and Hitler, and the Council agrees to let him stay. They live happily ever after. That is until the next adventure.
