The Scumbug is a disgusting alien ooze who works as a hit-man for an intergalactic crime-family. When the Scumbug is paid to kill someone he doesn’t ask many questions besides “how much should they suffer before they die?” and “can I eat the corpse or am I mailing out body-parts again?”
But the Scumbug has one rule: the Scumbug doesn’t hurt kids. So when the crime-family places a bounty on a human diplomat’s young daughter, the Scumbug kidnaps her to keep her safe. Now the Scumbug and an eight-year-old earthling girl are on the lam from every entity in the galaxy, and a few from outside, too. They’ll have to survive using only the Scumbug’s Scrambag, a cache of tools and weapons he stashed so he could disappear someday. Today, disappearing seems off the table.
