Senator Bob Kasten
Real Name: Senator Bob Kasten
Identity/Class: Normal (?) pig
Occupation: Truffle hunter and vampire slayer
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Wisconsin
First Appearance: The Badger #19 (First Comics, January 1987)
Powers/Abilities: Senator Bob has an extremely sensitive nose that allows her to hunt truffles or vampires with equal ease. She is also a skilled vampire slayer.
History: The Badger first made the acquaintance of Senator Bob Kasten when he was truffle hunting in France with Ham. Senator Bob Kasten proved to be the best truffle pig available, as well as a daring and heroic individual (she had saved her previous owner from a house fire, which is why only one of her legs had been eaten). She was deliberately starving herself when the Badger met her, to prevent anyone else from trying to eat parts of her. Ham purchased Senator Bob, who moved to America with her new friends.
Some time later Daisy was threatened by a vampire, and Badger called on his old friend, now a seasoned graduate of the Van Helsing Vampire hunting school. When the vamp had Badger on the ropes, Senator Bob came to the rescue, and when the nosferatu relieved her of her stake, Senator Bob used her peg leg and a daring forward roll to finish the creature off.
