I did have plans for a Noah type character.  In the Ted the Time Traveling
Atheist episode, Ted made mention of  an Arkhead.  Arkhead survived the flood
because he had an ark for a head.

That being said there's nothing that says there can't be two arks filled with
animals in the same Great Flood.  Perhaps the two of them met and had
an ark fight.

I'll probably start another run on the Dailly SSS Story sometime after
New Year's.
