Rides The Lightning
Quote(s): "I'm a Laughalympian*.  The name of the game is to make people laugh: and if the act requires I get hurt; so be it!  It's all a show to see just what you can get away with: for the sake of entertainment.  Always remember to never take the joke too far."

*Laughalympian - A person who has dedicated their life to the comedy of slapstick: It is a trial to endure the hustle and bustle of the station...  It is a gauntlet to face the station head on with a smirk on your face and a squeak in your step.  Get up when you're knocked down, and never forget to grin and bear it.  The station will never break you.

Physical Description: Rides The Lightning is a tall and thin lizard, who has dedicated his life to entertainment.  His muscles  have a visible definition to them from years of hard work and rigorous practice, and a strict diet.  Though he may look spindly, it would be a very big mistake to consider him weak or frail.  Under the mask, Rides has a somewhat triangular shaped face: he tends to wear a mouth guard to help prevent his teeth from being popped out during an accidental fall or taking a hard hit.

His scales are notably keeled upon his forearms, legs, and tail.  These spots feel rougher than normal, and break up the outline of his dark scales: while also helping them stop the reflection of light.

He has a dark black set of scales with a distinct vibrant pink banding accent coloration.

Education: Rides is well learned, being both a trained acrobat and clown.  He has a full college education (If one can count a fundamental clown college as a genuine college), and is self taught in a variety of routines.

Habits: Has a distinct fidget problem, and a restless leg.  He is also known to have little regard for his own life.  He drinks coffee (and energy drinks) to excess, which has lead to a caffeine addiction.  This is distinct for when he hasn't had a cup: he will get a hint agitatable.

Nanotrasen Loyalty Index: 50%.  Rides is fully aware that actual clowns are seen as a joke: and is capable of malicious intent when it comes to his performance.  If things aren't going his way and he feels he's giving more than he's getting, he is easily convinced.

That said, don't expect this maliciousness to be done effectively.

Occupation: Career Clown, capable of acting as a Musician and Security Officer.

Personality Traits: Rides is known to attempt to get along with everyone and anyone they meet.  When acting in a serious manner Rides is a very capable individual: but it goes against his nature as a Clown.  This is distinct when he is acting as a Security Officer: He will often handcuff himself as a joke.
