Hi guys, its Smart Flame.  I’m am giving a backstory to every villain of Poptropica on how they became evil.  Note:  I will not be doing Ringmaster Raven, Binary Bard, The Magistrate, or Holmes because their backstories have been introduced in their islands already.  Also not all islands has villains.

Dr. Hare: Mad scientist, Dr. Harvey Hare, loved experimenting, especially on carrots.  With a carrot farm just a mile away from him, his experiments never lacked any important ingredient.  Until, he started buying the whole harvest of carrots.  But the farmers started limiting his supply shipment.  So the scientist put on a rabbit costume and starting stealing the carrots and became known as Dr. Hare.

Captain Crawfish: When James and Samuel Ridley were boys, there father was the leader of their island.  When their father died, one of them had to assume Governor, so, James, being the oldest, assumed head governor.  Sam was angered by his brothers decision, left home, and headed to the seven seas.
