Mutable (pronounced: Moo-TAH-blay) is a minor character in the fanfic webcomic Q-Basic Gorillas. He was part of Qilmara's royal guard until his death in 1996.

Character bio

Little is known about Mutable's history at this time. What is known is that he was chosen to his position in the royal guard due to his quick reflexes and determined bravery. He is seen advising the then-princess Qilmara to keep running toward the Q-Base in order to be safe from the skilled warrior cannibal Brassandra, while he stays behind to distract the cannibal (and avenge Adonias.) He utilizes his Q-Shield to great effect to block her arrows, demonstrating himself to be more skilled than Adonias at anticipating an enemy's next move.

Brassandra proceeds to make quick work of him regardless, as she is simply more skilled at combat (and more willing to fight dirty.) Brassandra then pursues the princess directly, but a young Flix interferes. Flix defeats Brassandra after a short squabble. However, defeating Brassandra only reveals that Adonias' lack of care to covering his own tracks made it easier for the Ice Chimp scout Midikag to find and tail Qilmara. Flix is able to defeat Midikag too, flipping the ambush around.

After being coronated, the new Queen Qilmara has Mutable's body recovered so he can receive a proper burial. Flix goes on to join the Topaz Division's science department, then rises up the ranks in North America until he becomes a lieutenant colonel. At this point, Qilmara officially makes him Col. Flix. In his science lab, Flix bears tributary plaques to Adonias and Mutable.


Mutable is shown as being loyal to a fault. He is also willing to take on enemies for more competent and skilled than himself, in order to defend the royal line he so strongly believes in.
