Originally the Knights of the Slice were portrayed by hired union actors for live events. As the need for the Knights to run security alongside deliveries increased, the huge insurance liability for putting outside contractors at risk was too much to bare. So Pizza Shunt CEO Fred had the idea to use corporate staff, with the proper training, as security. With employee contracts already covering any fatal eventualities, Fred could fill the suits with his own people.
Unfortunately, 99% of his staff was morbidly obese due to constantly eating Pizza Shunt’s offerings, so filling the role came down to who could actually fit into the suit’s measurements.
Ironically, it was something as insignificant as dietary restrictions that led to the selection of Lime & Brick. Lime had severe allergies to diary, gluten, and.. well… everything. Brick, a committed pacifist, was strictly vegan and plant-based.
"Starting out in the marketing department of Fred Foods (the conglomerate that owns Pizza Shunt restaurant), Jesse quickly rose in ranks for his innovative suggestions to revive the KOTS mascots as action figure prizes in kid’s meals. The program was a resounding success but despite his promotion, Jesse was still stymied by entrenched management.
His invite to become an official Knight of the Slice was extended when he met the basic requirements to “fit in the suit”. His training commenced immediately and with the hyper-charged pizza, he become an adonis in breathable spandex!
Having been a sickly kid who never passed a fitness test, Lime has embraced the enhanced powers of the Knights of the Slice and fearless jumps head first into battle. His many years in the marketing department gave him a business acumen that makes him a natural leader…although he can be hotheaded."
