Crooz is a Crocodile-Fan Character created to give a story to a background character from the Chima TV show.
Crooz spent his entire life in the Crocodile swamp with his parents, having little to no money on them. Crooz's childhood was a difficult time for him. During the Civil War, at age 26, he joined the 7th river, a member of the Crocodile Navy. In this group, he often either piloted the Crocodile Command Ship or stood with several guards in the prison near the vessel's "mouth". Later in the war, Crooz fought battles on land as well, using a spear purchased from the wolves.
After the War, Crooz mostly served as a tribe guard. He was nearly frozen by the Ice Hunters twice, and when he finally was captured for the "gallery", Crooz was one of the first to be freed by the Hunters' allied opponents.
Crooz is a lime green croc with tan stomach scales. He has a crimson crest on his head and yellow eyes. Crooz wears little or no clothing, only wearing a small strip of red fabric on his right side and a small belt. He has no loincloth or leggings at all, placing his abdomen scales in full view. He often wields a spear in combat.
