Backstory: Ruler of the Cloud People, King Blotto ruled over a nation which existed within the stratosphere. A people who lived upon clouds which filled with stardust, remained solid to stand upon. Carving out a civilization that relies on falling space debris to survive, the Cloud People lived meager lives, rationing to live from year to year and carve out lives from what has been their way for thousands of years.
However the march of progress and continuous advancement of human civilization would spell dire trouble for King Blotto and his people. As humans began developing jet engines and using planes which traveled the stratosphere, King Blottos people would go unnoticed by fast moving aviation which tore through, dispersing the ground which they walked upon and destroying the precious crops which they needed to live.
Thus King Blotto would order war upon aviation itself! For the sake of their survival they would blast those offending planes out of the sky as they approached the hidden kingdom of the clouds using newly created weaponry for this very purpose.
The planes would crash in the cloud kingdom and their occupants enslaved to work the fields which were destroyed by the aviators. With King Blotto certain that his peoples fate rested on an iron fist for showing any mercy could spell extinction for the Cloud People.
