The Organization

"We are the true masters of this world. We are the Organization!"

The most powerful criminal organization of the 23rd century, consisting of unauthorized chrononauts traveling in time to steal items of historical value.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #14 "Carpe Diem"

  • Agent Peacock: All the Raiders we've seen so far dress up like flamboyant supervillains while everyone else in the Organization (and the 23rd Century in general) is garbed rather conservatively.
  • Advertisement:
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: In their introduction, the Organization do what they can to stop an expanding bubble of nothing from annihilating absolutely everything in all of time.
  • The Group: The Organization itself is nameless; its member do not consider it to have a name, and "The Organization" is just how they refer to it. As the tall member of the triumvirate says:
    Tall triumvirate member: Names are needed to distinguish things, Paperinik. We have no need of them. We are unique!
    • Ultimately Subverted, as the crossover with Double Duck reveals they were named after the 20th Century Organization, that had inspired one of their founders to do his Face–Heel Turn.
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: Implied to be the ones who sent the Raider to try this in "The Winds of Time". They had him assemble a device to change the timeline to the preferred one without altering any event. They later succeed by accident in "Nothing Personal" thanks to the Gryphon, but that alternate future disappears at the end of the issue.
    • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: How they solved the problem with the bubble of nothingness: sending the Raider and Paperinik to prevent it from forming.
  • No Name Given: The three leaders of the Organization are never identified with specific names.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: They don't usually try and change the timeline because it's too dangerous, and prevented the end of time because their own skins were on the line. Also, when the microcontraption blocked all time travel they were on the forefront in trying to restore it, mostly for their own gain.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Reveal: At the end of crossover with Double Duck it is revealed that Axel (an ex-superspy and a villain) and T32 (a Rogue Time Cop) have created the organization.
  • The Syndicate: A well structured organization bent down on changing history and becoming richer.
  • Time Travel: Even better than that of the Time Police, as they can travel into the future.

     The Bosses 

The Organization Bosses

The three, nameless leaders who are in charge of the Organization, they consist in a tall, imposing member cloaked in a mantle, a sarcastic scrawny cyborg and a woman in purple.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #14 "Carpe Diem"

  • Cyborg: The scrawny one seems to be almost entirely mechanical, safe for most of his face and his long blond hair. In The Banks of Time, both male members are half-machine.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Even the scrawny one's Establishing Character Moment has him snarking at the uncoming time destruction which is inesorably destroying the past.
    Scrawny Org. Boss: "Oh boy, how I hate monday morning..."
  • Graceful Loser: in #43, when the Time Police finally manages to capture them all, only the Large Boss looks shocked, the woman even chuckles when she puts two and two together and realize that it was the Raider's fault and even the scrawny guy takes it in stride.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the timeline of #37, the series of events caused by the Gryphon leads to a brainwashed Odin and Deugemio (Due in a body) to overthrow them, but is undone by the end of the volume. In #43, using Vostok as a mole and the Raider to recover the device to stop the microcontraptions ends up with their arrest.
  • Large and in Charge: The big leader towers over nearly everyone else, otherwise averted for the other two members.
  • The Man Behind the Man: They're revealed to be this to the Raider. The woman is revealed to be the one who sent the Lyla-impersonating Droid after the Dol Arador Raider in #18.
  • No Name Given: Not once they're given names.
  • Not So Stoic: When first introduced they look serious and stern, but they reveal a comical side of themselves in later stories. The woman in particular seems to be the most emotive of the three.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: As seen in #14 and #43, they're willing to work with "heroes" if the current crysis is a threat even to their own business or existance.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: A huge man, a cyborg and a woman, to be precise.
  • You Are Number 6: While they're not given official names, each have a code attached, namely 9001010 (the large one), 9001011 (the woman) and 9001012 (the cyborg).
  • You Don't Look Like You: The three Organization leaders that appear in The Banks of Time only have a superficial similarity to their old design. Most notably, the woman is no longer a dog-nosed person but a duck.

     The Raider 

The Raider
"I don't have time for this."

"Raider" is a title used by the greatest time pirate of the Organization, and he is the current one in Paperinik New Adventures. A time traveling thief who steals valuables from the past, and sometimes attempts to change history. Over the course of time he becomes more of an ally to Paperinik.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #0/2 "The Winds of Time"



The former Raider in Paperinik New Adventures, and the one and only in Pikappa.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #33 "The Day that Will Come"

  • Artificial Limbs: His right arm.
  • Badass Cape: That he stole from the Raider.
  • Composite Character: In Pikappa, Kronin and Raider were combined to create a new character called Kronin.
  • Dark Is Evil: A more evil version of the Raider.
  • Enemy Mine: He and Paperinik worked together once in Pikappa.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the current Raider in PKNA.
  • Karmic Death: After the creation of the Black Hole in Time Zero he tries to leave everybody to their fate with his ship... only for the power to run out when he's still in range of the Hole's attraction. Undone by the next volume though.
  • Only One Name: Like all the criminals we see in PKNA #33.
  • Punny Name: "Crono", as in "time-related", and "Ronin".
  • Purple Is Powerful: Wears that Raider cape.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Dons the Raider's costume with the good old colors in Pikappa.
  • Time Machine: As an agent of The Organization he has one.
  • Villain of the Week: In Paperinik New Adventures, he only truly appeared in the story of #33. His second appearance in the first series was only in a What If? version of said issue.




A droid who works for the Organization.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #14 "Carpe Diem"

     The Gryphon 

The Gryphon

The evil future version of Trip, the Raider's son. Following the death of the Raider, the Organization adopts Trip and convinces him that Paperinik is responsible for his father's death. Becomes the greatest time pirate the Organization has ever had.

First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #34 "Nothing Personal"

  • Ambiguously Brown: Like father, like son.
  • Cyborg: Indicated by how he speaks with the same robotic speech bubble pattern as his cybernetic father.
  • Evil Feels Good: Paperinik confronts him with this, asking why he never used his time powers to save his father, then concluding that the Gryphon likes the life of a criminal and wouldn't give it up for anything in the world.
  • Failure-to-Save Murder: An interesting variation, as the Gryphon could just use his time powers to save the Raider whenever he wanted to. IF he truly wanted to. His younger self isn't happy about hearing this, screaming out how he hates him for this.
  • Hand Blast: From the same technology as his dad.
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: He succeeded (for a while). See the Meaningless Villain Victory for more.
  • Master of Disguise: Can change appearance with his tech.
  • Meaningless Villain Victory: The Gryphon had actually already won before you start reading the first page of PKNA #34, having managed to utterly destroy Donald's life. The rest of the issue is about him trying to maintain that victory by assuring that his younger self will grow up to be him. However, everything was rendered moot when Odin Eidolon's actions caused the Raider to stay alive, thus Trip would never become the Gryphon and the whole timeline was changed.
  • Motive Decay: Convinced that PK caused the death of his father, he was raised and trained by the Organization for revenge. However, when he got the ability to travel through time, he had grown so content with his criminal lifestyle that he'd rather maintain it - even if it meant to not save his father. His younger and still innocent self is disgusted.
  • Not So Above It All: Even when preparing himself to destroy PK, he ounded amazed when he discovered that Newton's necktie glows in the dark.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Gryphon" has been rendered his only name at this point.
  • Time Machine: Obviously.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Ok, Trip isn't exactly sweet, but you wouldn't expect him to become such a sadist as an adult.
  • Villain of the Week: But damn was he dangerous.
  • Walking Spoiler: Due to the reason this villainous persona came into existence.
  • You Killed My Father: Blames Paperinik for the death of the Raider.
