"Laiyas... How could you even think it? Assassinate both Master Gordo and the true heir to the Saiyan throne? You mad, sadistic fool! I'll never let you accomplish your goal!""
— Ticholla's inner monologue after discovering his leader's plans

Background historyEdit

Ticholla Sprite Right

Ticholla—codenamed T'kaij during his many years as a member of Laiyas' Band—is a Saiyan mercenary whose ancestors survived the destruction of Planet Vegeta by Frieza yet were stricken from the records when they could not be found by the World Trade Organization as a way to save face. The members of this band would take codenames to avoid detection by the WTO and, later, to avoid the Celcian Hypotherm during his Great Saiyan Purge. The name Ticholla would take was T'kaij, an alien word meaning "annihilator" that he was called during an early one-Saiyan invasion.

As time went on, Ticholla befriended both Kaalif and Kale, two other members of their mercenary band and often would partner up with Kaalif to eliminate worlds for the black market sale from non-WTO benefactors.

Known AbilitiesEdit




Ticholla Family Lineage

Ticholla's contribution to the Brief Family tree

Ticholla's family refers to ancestors of his who were part of Gordo's initial squadron as well as the family he established upon reaching the planet Earth upon his starting up a relationship with a descendant of the Brief family.

Laiyas' BandEdit

Ticholla & Kaalif 2

Ticholla & Kaalif invade a planet.

Laiyas' Band are the remnants of a small band of survivors from the destruction of Planet Vegeta, who now work as mercenaries. Currently, only 18 members remain who have survived Hypotherm's Great Saiyan Purge. Initially Ticholla was a member of their group but he eventually went AWOL and they sought to kill him under orders of Lord Laiyas. As such, for the most part these are former allies turned enemies, although it is not always the case as some remained loyal to him or were not sicked on him to begin with.

Ticholla Transform MM Sprites

Spritesheet of Ticholla going Super Saiyan.

  • Ticholla's name is based on artichoke.
  • Ticholla was Somarinoa's second fan-made Dragon Ball character, being the first character not intended to just be himself (with the first being created for 1-on-1 chat RP over ICQ based on his Ultima Online character, Goku). Overall, Ticholla is considered Somarinoa's first actual Dragon Ball fan character because of this.
