Cloris was a monster made entirely from the mildew scraped from the armpits of former United States Vice Presidential candidates, with Harry S. Truman being the largest known contributor. Interestingly, Sarah Palin is the one whose fungal growth gave the creature sentience, if you can call it that. Cloris now does her best to live up to the expectations of her peers and progenitors. She is largely successful. When the Tick ran for president, Arthur was nearly made to donate his armpit mildew to cloris, but in Season 4 Ep 12, The Tick vs. the Mildew Monster, the duo was able to successfully fillibuster their way to victory.
