Marital Status: Bromance
Occupation: Funky Fresh Breakdancer
Crusader Pop’N is one half of the Brothers from East and West Berlin, “The Crusaders”. Pop’N is the younger twin, and spends his days and nights perfecting his funky-fresh break-dance moves and practicing to be the world’s greatest DJ and bring his fresh beats to the masses.
When Pop’N was a child, his mother and 3.5 out of their seven (known) fathers lived in poverty, in East Berlin. Pop’N had always heard rumors that he had a twin brother, separated at birth who lived on the other side of the Berlin wall. Every day, Pop’N would kick his only possession, a red ball; against the Berlin Wall, and dream of the day when he could be a rich and famous MC. When Crusader Pop’N got older, he accidentally kicked his red ball over the wall. After crying and doing the Dance of funky sadness at the loss of his only possession, he was about to go home in shame, but then; his ball came flying back over the wall to him. out of curiosity, he kicked the ball over again, and again; the ball came sailing back. Crusader Pop’N Called over the wall to the stranger kicking his ball back, and a friendship was born.
Crusader Pop’N would return to the wall every day to perfect his dance moves, and kick the ball over to his new friend, who he learned also had a brother on the other side of the wall that he had never met. Pop’N’s heart filled with sadness as he too knew this pain.
When the wall finally came down, Crusader Pop’N was leading the efforts in the east. When the Wall in front of him crumbled he found himself face to face with someone almost as funky-fresh as himself. He knew immediately this must be his twin brother and the two have been insuperable, since.
The only thing that bothers Crusader Pop’N to this day is: He still wonders if that other guy ever found his brother, too…
