Shrikes is a HTFF character.
Shrikes is a grey-purple shrike. Just like a shrike in reality, Shrikes is known for using things like thorn bushes and barbed wire to impale his prey. However, Shrikes himself is actually a dangerous criminal and his "prey" tends to be other characters.
A telltale sign that Shrikes is nearby would be the sight of his victims' impaled corpses. Shrikes gets arrested fairly often but can easily escape from prison by flying. His usual targets are characters he would want to eat, whose body parts he'd want to use, or if they offended him in some way.
Among Shrikes' favorite victims are "delicious" insect characters, which also makes him one of the main antagonists in Happy Insect Friends.
