Buck is Katja's sidekick and James' childhood bully. He makes an appearance in Starshine Legacy: The Riddle of Dark Core and can also be found in Star Stable Online as a resident of New Hillcrest.  

Starshine Legacy: The Riddle of Dark Core[]

James is being bullied by Buck at school before Alex steps in and stops him.

When Linda and Alex study ancient texts in the library, one of the images represents Buck, with tentacles instead of legs, fighting the Soul Riders.

When Alex later challenges Katja, it is Buck who fights her. Buck loses to Alex, and later, when Alex wins against Katja in the race back to stables, he disappears.

Tentacle legs

Buck is seen fighting against the soulriders and having tentacles instead of legs.

Star Stable Online[]

Buck appears in Fort Pinta during the interval between Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 of the Token Quests and makes rude remarks on James' Toy Postcards. However, Buck is interrupted by his seemingly romantic interest Rin who praises Token's Adventures instead as she explains how it increased her Purple Pony sales by 15%. Feeling abashed, Buck apologises to James and reveals that he was jealous of James' resilience and courage to smile despite facing hardships in his life.
