Ducheval was put into the roster for Dragon Army by Bean and later was organized into the C toon. When their commander Ender Wiggin asked Bean to make a separate special toon, he selected Shovel to be a part of it. Crazy Tom the leader of C toon was angry that he was losing two of his soldiers, but eventually accepted the arrangement.[1]
