Unknowing the Truth
Cris Formage is a clear parody of scientology figures David Miscavige and L. Ron Hubbard, incorporating various elements of both figures' personalities and histories.
The word "formage", if pronounced like how Cris pronounces his last name, is quite similar to "fromage", which is French for "cheese".
On the promotional posters and the in-game website, Cris' skin color is notably lighter and his hair is black. However, when seen in person, his skin color is light brown and his hair color is dark auburn.
Like Lazlow, Fernando Martinez, Jack Howitzer and the Love Fist members, Formage is also a surviving character from the continuity of the 3D Universe.
