Bootsy Collins is a great Funk Mage, skillfully wielding such techniques as the Slap Bass and Funky Groove. His mighty staff, the Space Bass, is feared throughout the land. He first practiced his noble craft with his brother Catfish, an eventually became the apprentice of Funk God James Brown. Here, he learned how to bring new bags to fathers and how to attain a feeling of wellness. However, Bootsy was not content being Brown's apprentice.

Brown would later say, "Bootsem wis ulwez a gud prispact for finkaterin, heht. HEEEEY."
Bootsy then became an apprentice under the Great and Powerful George Clinton. It was with Clinton that he learned the devious plot of Sir Nose D'Voiddofunk.
