I did this during my stream thanks to everyone who came by and helped me design this character on the fly
For this stream I used the next suggestions from the chat: Monkey, Space, scifi. Also had the idea of an aquatic monkey but at the end chaged it to fit a little into the back story of the character.
In the 40's and 60's the soviets sent monkeys into space as test subjects.
Not all of them died...
