With all of my Dark Krypto stories now out of the way, I've decided to focus on a new group of villians.
Band of Theives
Right away, the episode begins with a bank being robbed at night by a mysterious group of animals. They call themselves the "Band of Thieves", and contain a group of 4 dogs, 2 cats, and a tanuki. The leader is a dog that wears cloak, covering their body and face. The dog stars spotted the trouble after receiving word of these villains and a battle ensues. The Band of Thieves manages to escape, but leaves the stolen goods behind. Krypto and Streaky arrive, only to find themselves too late. After Brainy tells them about the band, the two head back home. The next day, Krypto and Streaky walk through the town as their normal selves, when Krypto spies a white female dog with a ribbon around her head that looks just like him. Krypto falls in love her and walks over to introduce himself. Never having done it a love gesture before, he falls and sumbles in front of her. The dog laughs and helps him up, telling him her name is Aria. Streaky sighs and decides to leave them both alone. Krypto and Aria spend the rest of the day together. Thankfully, no emergencies happen so Krypto is glad that he doesn't have to show her what he really is. After doing many events together, Krypto heads home with a smile on his face. After he leaves, another dog approaches Aria and asks her why she's so happy. Aria replies with "I may have found us a new member." and runs off with the other dog. At Kevin's house, Kevin gets a nausiated by Krypto's talk of Aria, until Krypto mocks him by saying, "What about you and Andrea?". Kevin gets embarassed and the two decide to say no more. Later that night, Krypto goes on patrol with Streaky and the two find out the Band of Thieves are at it again. They arrive to see the Dog Stars already duking it out with them, except this time the Dog Stars are losing. Krypto defeats three of the dogs while Streaky does the same with cats. The tanuki shows off its shapeshifting powers, but the Dog Stars take care of it. Krypto confronts the leader and the leader tells him that the fight isn't over. The leader throws a smoke bomb and all of the band members manage to get away.
