Blammo was one of many children in a French family of ore miners. While his family was renowned for their expertise in the mining of precious metals and the use of explosives in particular, young Blammo grew tired of the simple life under the mountains, and sought his fortune in the armed forces. Despite his genius with explosives, the regular military rejected him because of his size. His talents, however, drew the attention of the Clown Commandos. The sergeant has a tendency to be gruff, and to wax philosophical at the most inopportune moments. The squad’s peculiar fate has seemed to have the least impact on Blammo. His usual demeanor continues to boost the squad’s moral in the most trying of circumstances.
