Character Contest 35 – Road Warrior!

Your mission for the week is to develop the best character who would fit into a “Road Warrior”, post-apocalyptic survival world (thanks for the idea, Imp!). Whoever comes up with the best design, as judged by me, Lord Emperor of … um, this site, I guess … will win either any item they like, or a portrait of themselves, to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version!

The rules are simple:

  • No more than three entries per person, fitting the concept of “Road Warrior”;
  • Each entry to be left as a link in the comments (with a brief character bio, preferably) to this post, said link going to a graphic file (JPG or PNG usually) hosted on a public web server somewhere like ImageShack or Facebook or the UGO Forums, what have you;
  • All entries due no later than next Monday, at which time I’ll pick a winner.

The standard concept here is a gritty, gun-toting warrior type with mismatched armor pieces consisting of current-world castoffs like half shoulder pads, biker pants, etc, usually with scars or mohawks or some other kind of street-thug regalia. But don’t feel like you have to limit yourself just to that, post-apocalyptic worlds can be host to some really bizarre creatures, too. Mutants from the likes of “Gamma World”, if anyone remembers that RPG, or the kinds of guys you see in the various Fallout games, or escaped robots scrambling for survival like everyone else, there are lots of possibilities. So don’t be afraid to be creative and let yourself imagine the kinds of beings (natural or otherwise) that would survive in such a world.

Good luck everyone!

    His name is Savage he leads a band of mutant bikers in the year 2056, he is a complete psycho and he plunders from the more fortunate survivors.
    I added a crab arm mostly because of the typical “nuke” deal.

    An urban pirate is a scavenger, raider, and thief who survives by his or her wits, luck, and skill. Lurking in the ruins of the pre-Fall cities, they take what they can from the decayed remants of the old society, and wait to band together and attack the occasional caravan that ventures into the badlands:

  14. Nicholas, sometimes WordPress flags a post as spam, especially if it’s just a link with nothing else in it. When that happens you don’t get a notice, because it figures you’re a bot or something. Then anything you post tends to get so flagged, until I manually go in and say it’s not spam. Which I’ve now done, so you should be good to go from here on out. Sorry for the hassle, computers can be so rude!

  25. Hey Jeff Are Rifts ( Palladium Books RPG ) Characters ok for this contest ? Rifts is a post-apocalyptic world, where the apocalyptic event triggered the re-emergance of Magic on such a grand scale that it tore the fabric of time and space causing Demensional portal or “Rifts” to open all over the world. These portal which still randomly open at any given time have allowed a whole host of different things to make its home on Earth, from creature normally only found in fantasy games like elves and Dwarves, to Strange Aliens, to weird and powerful Machines.

    So even though it is post-apocalyptic it has alot of fantasy elements and it isn’t uncommon to see an Elven Sorcerer battling against a Rail gun toteing Cyborg, or a Ancient Dragon going toe to toe with a 30 foot tall Robot.

  26. Hi Kaldath, I’d say it has to be something you’d instantly recognize as fitting into a post-apocalyptic setting. An image that you’d think was your standard elf wizard wouldn’t fly — if it NEEDS a paragraph saying “this elf wizard is actually in a post-apocalyptic world because of a portal” to figure it out, then it’s not what I am looking for.

    An elf all kitted out in cyborg armor with a big gun, sure. A standard elf warrior in Robin Hood getup with a bow and arrow, not so much.

    Entry 1- Fission Project

    The End of the World was an easily forseen inconvinince for humanity. The method of which seemed to be Nuclear or Bio-Weaponry.

    And where there is the Nuclear End of the World there is that ever so cinema-popular group of scientists that work on accelerating evolutionaries to the point where Humanity can not only resist radiation…but thrive in it.

    And where there are scneitists that mess with genetics…there are terrible genetic failures. One of which was Project Fission, codenamed ‘Fizz Twins’.

    Unfortunately, scientists came to the conclusion that Human anatomy is completely incapable of accelerated augmentation, and it is a natural process. Too bad for everyone else, Mother Nature just ain’t fast enough. Boom goes the World!

    The Scientist’s Projects were all destroyed when the bombs dropped…all but the Fizz Twins, that is!

    My first attempt at Road Warrior.

    Craig Dustman Fought in the Great Zombie War of 2115-2123. This war was mainly ground based, and there were around 7 different front lines. Craig rode around on his 2009 Harley-Davidson FXDF Dyna Fat Bob X-Boost Thunder Mod bike, customised for the more rugged terrain of 2115. Craig carries the skull of thhe first zombie he killed in the war on the front of bike, in between the headlights, and uses his cybernetically enhanced vison to seek out the zombies, wherever they may be. Craig’s main hunting ground became the forests, as he found that most of the zombies sheltered there.

    By the end of the war, every zombie except three had been wiped out. Those 3 were in decontamination chambers at Utah Scientific Research Center, as they were 3 of the 10 most brilliant minds in the World. Order still hadn’t came to the world, after every human was on the same team killing zombies.Over 3/4 of the population had lost somebody close to them because of the war, and the population went down from 18 billion to 14 billion. The most devasting war ever to happen in the universe. Craig was extremel upset, as he had lost both of his parents in that war.

    Craig placed the skull of the first zombie he killed on top of one headlight, and the skull of the last one he killed, the one who killed his parents, was placed above the left headlight.

    7 years later, another Zombie war broke out, and Craig became ruthless. He shot anything that moved that wasn’t human or machine, and managed a weekly average of 23.7 rather than 14.6 in the last apocolypse. Craig became the Road Warrior, mericlessly killing to avenge the death of his parents. His revenge caused him to become sick ad twisted, often forgetting who he was. Whenever he forgot, he looked at the two skulls. ‘This is for you, Mom and Dad,’ He would say before he climbed onto his bike everyday, ‘Rest In Peace.’

    Kurt Drakal,was a harsh,hated bully at all his years of Elementary School, High School, and his 2 and half years of College.Inside school all he was in most of the time was at detention, in the back at his classroom with negative thoughts and ignoring his teacher, or sitting with in the Principal’s Office being scolded and yelled at. Most of his family had hated him to such as his Uncle, Siblings, and all of his cousins.Two weeks before he had gone to college he had killed his Uncle with a broken piece of glass. It took the Local Police 1 year to find out about the murder, and it took them 1 months and 282 days for them to find out Kurt caused the murder. After 20 years in prison, once Kurt was released he was beat up by his to older brothers,Arnold and Anthony. 2 weeks later a nuke had hit four countries including Kurt’s. Kurt was on of few to survive, but had been mutated into a lizard and scorpion-like creature. He had covered his body with many pieces of ripped and old clothing to feel normal with the non-mutated survivors.After 7 weeks of the nuke explosions he had been hit by a few rocks on his forehead by a rock slide of a collapsing mountain.After finding a few other survivors he was given an old and rusty motorcycle with decent speed. The group of survivors he had nicknamed him Acid Burst from the burned and lost skin he had, and the leftover acid on his body that he had absorbed from the burst of the nukes that had exploded 7 weeks earlier.

  34. James Armstrong was just a simple mechanic before the Event. When everything was over, the right side of James’s body had been damaged beyond repair. He hacked off his right arm, and built several mechanical replacements for it; each serving a different purpose. He then set out to look for any traces of civilization, becoming the nomad “Strong-Arm”…

    The arm he’s wearing shoots blasts of energy (I’m assuming by the time of the apocolypse, we’ve managed to develop energy weapons), and the three around him are examples of some of the other arms he’s made: an arm with a serrated blade, an arm with a beam sword, and an arm with a powerful gripping hand.

    http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/Kaldath/HalJackson-Juicer.png

    ( Text below Taken From Rifts World Book 10: Juicer Uprising )
    ” It’s like this.

    Imagine you’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and then two street scum decide to screw with you. Maybe they don’t notice the drug harness-myself, I hide it under my cloak; I don’t like to advertise-or maybe they are just high on something, or just plain crazy. They ask you for money, you tell them to go play with themselves, and one of them reaches for a gun or a vibro-blade.

    That’s when it starts to happen.

    The little computer they built into you starts pumping chemicals into your bloodstream. The world slows down around you, and everything feels sharper, clear, more real than anything you’ll ever feel, before or after. You can count every hair in the young punk’s face, you can smell his fear and anger, you are aware of everything around you. I guess that’s how a god would feel.

    You have all the time in the world. The punk’s weapon is only halfway out of its holster, and you still have time to think of a battle plan, enjoy the scenery, and even think of a snappy joke before you need to make your move.

    Finally, you decide it’s time to act. The punk is ten feet away. You close in. To the punk and his friends, it’s like you just teleported. They are flies trying to swim through milasses, and you are a hawk soaring through the sky. What to do, what to do…You could draw your gun and drill the punk between his eyes, but you are feeling artistic, so you just wind-up and give him a good haymaker, powerful enough to dent ballistic armor. So the punk manages to clear his weapon, but you just batted his head clean off his shoulders. The other punks try and run. You can catch them-they’d need a car to get away from you-or you can let them go, enjoying the high while it lasts.

    Finally, the danger is over, and you come down. Things stop being so clear and beautiful anymore. You may even get the nagging suspicion you are back to being a human. Sometimes, I need to remind myself I’m not, and I have to leap off a building just to get the rush going again.

  40. The Doomed Pixel

    I never believed in superstition. Why should I? I was better than that. Smarter than that. I didn’t need any make-believe stories to make myself feel better.

    I never believed in the apocalypse. How could the world as we know it end, with just the blink of an eye? That’s ridiculous. I thought so back then. I still find it hard to believe, but very day I wake up to see the world around me crumbling upon itself. But the Mayans had it right: December 21, 2012: the day the Earth went to Hell. Who knows how long it’s been? Paper hasn’t been able to hold up like it used to. The radiation from the sun finally came through the ozone layer, and slowly, everything’s been falling apart ever since.

    First it was the little things. Paper, plastics, synthetic-weave fabrics. It’s not that it would just disappear, it would just…break. Paper crumbled and plastic melted. Then, it was some of the larger things: most types of wood, glass, …people. Gone. Crumbled to the touch. They just kind of shriveled up one day. You still run across some of them every once in a while. It’s awful to see. They aren’t dead, really, but alive is too strong a word. Not zombies, but shadows of what they were. They aren’t dangerous; they can barely fend for themselves. Those of us who survived the radiation breakthrough are few and far between; miracle men, we’re called. But it’d hardly a miracle. Our skin’s gotten hard and leathery, and I don’t know about others, but I’ve started growing protrusions and spikes on the areas that get the most sun.

    So now I do whatever I can to stay alive. I travel; no sense in stocking up when it all eventually falls apart around you. I take things as they come, and if I have to kill people to stay alive myself, then I do. But i keep a strip of fabric for each person I kill, in their memory (at least, for as long as I can). What I do isn’t pretty, but it’s necessary. I don’t know how much longer I can last. I don’t know where I’m going. I just hope I get there.

    She roams the wastes using her skill and feminine endowments to her advantage whenever she can. Her trusty racoon, Atticus, helps her forage for food, and she cares for him as she would her own child. The wasteland has hardened her, but she is not yet completely devoid of emotion. Occasionally she will help those in need when it does not benefit her materialistically. She carries only what she needs and keeps only memories as souvenirs of past loves and times well spent. She figures she’ll be dead by the time she starts to forget them.

    This is a Night Stalker.

    No man has seen one and lived, nor has anyone ever killed one. In a post appocalyptic world there are many nomads who travel the empty desserts searching for pieces of a lost civilization. At night while these nomads sleep a different kind of being comes out to hunt. They feed on the humans that sleep, like packs of wolves they circle the victims and attack. They are gone before anyone can realize they were being watched by the creatures they call Night Stalkers.

    Little Janey Monroe was born after the Big Fire, in the time when even the luckiest were scrambling just to stay alive. Her father was a dirt farmer in a little fortified town called Hope’s Dust, and they, along with the other 40 or so people who lived there, fought tooth and nail to bring enough food out of the scorched ground to keep body and soul together. And they were even doing all right, as far as things went back then…

    But when little Janey was seven years old, the raiders came. They were a motley band of wastelands trash called the Overlords, a pack of scum who lived by taking what others had for themselves. The people of Hope’s Dust fought hard, but the Overlords were too well armed and too determined, and in a night of fire and blood they blew a hole in the palisade around the town and took the place.

    The lucky ones — like Janey’s father — died. The others, like Janey herself…well, they had it worse. The Overlords took a few women and girls to use for their pleasure, and their pleasure was pretty unspeakable. Jane — she wasn’t a little girl any more, not after that night, and she would never again use a little girl’s name — spent the next eight years suffering things no girl should ever have to suffer. One by one, the others taken from Hope’s Dust died, but there were always more, always new slaves taken from other towns. Most of them died too, sooner or later.

    But Jane was tough, and Jane was mad, and Jane didn’t die. And one night some bathtub gin combined with an unguarded gun to give Jane a chance at the thing she wanted more than anything: payback. The Overlords died that night — most of them, anyway. Some fled into the night, seeking escape from the raging angel of vengeance that had sprung up so unexpectedly in their own midst.

    Yes, some got away, but that’s all right — it gives Jane something to aim for, after all. Now she’s searching the wastes for them, and one by one, she finds them. And when she does, their heads go right on the hood of that cherry 1957 pink Caddy she found in an old barn.

    So if, once upon a time, you used to hang with the Overlords, know this: your days are numbered. You can run if you want — Cadillac Jane doesn’t mind a little sport. And she’s got a nice place on the hood of that car waiting just for you…

    It’s never easy being a superhero. There are rules that you must follow, for example; no killing. However, sometimes people have to break their own rules. After the bombs went off, reducing the world to a wasteland and obliterating most of the worlds population, most of the remaining superheroes did their best to keep order and keep everyone alive, however this was near impossible, with the government gone people went crazy, they formed gangs of raiders who slaughtered and robbed anyone they came across, people turned into madmen, and even cannibals. It was too much, and soon the heroes gave up. BoltMan (lol) was one of them, he was once a great hero, who saved thousands and thousands of lives. Now he just wonders the wasteland, keeping himself alive, by any means necessary :(

  55. Jethro Banks fought alongside Craig Dustman in the Great Zombie War. He now roams he opposite side of the forests to Craig, and often walks down by the polluted lakes and rivers.

    He was on of the unluckier survivors of the Great Zombie War. He lost half of his left arm and leg, and all of his right arm except for the bone at the top of the arm, which pokes out of his shoulder. The only full limb he has left is his right leg. His body is cybernetically enhanced, and has a cybotic left leg and arm, with a gun on he outer side.

    When he feels threatened, or needs to attack, he can telephacally expand his cybernetic structure, with a gattling gun coming out of his right shoulder, and armor shooting out of his cybotic limbs, where almost everything on him is covered, and he still has as much freedom of movement as his normal clothes give him. His left arm’s gun increases in size, and his hand swivels to grip it. the Gattling gun loads, and his armor adjusts to his positioning. All of the transformation takes just 1.7 seconds, from the expansion of his structure, to the adjusting position of the armor.

  56. Here’s my entry.
    I don’t really have a backstory on him, I just made him up as I went along. I’ve never been a fan of the movies, but I had to make an entry.

    I tried to give him as many Madmax-ish details as I could, Like giving him Makeshift weapons,etc. I gave him a propane- fueled flamethrower on his wrist, which would probably have to be my favorite part.

    First contact with an alien spiecies wasn’t under the best of circumstances. Earth was on the brink of WW3. The second korean war had reduced the korean peninsula to rubble and had put the Far East in chaos. The situation in the Middle East was still tense and the resulting economical crisis affected the entire world.

    The aliens on the other hand, were very friendly and were looking for lots of people to populate a few newly terraformed planets.

    The mass migration of humans to less populated and poluted planets across the galaxy was so massive and so short that Earths population dropped 80% in the next 50 years.

    Governments, army and police disapeared almost instantly. And Earths remote and insignificant location in the galaxy made it a haven for al kinds of tughs, thieves and other criminals of all species.

    Now Earth is a lawless zone, its culture and cities all but destroyed by illegal weapons testing and other experiments. Filled with shady spaceports and settlements.

    Kr’ish has a long rap sheet on his homeworld and settled on Earth to avoid prosecution. But he seems to have sworn of his life of crime and now protects the few humans left.

Most of his family had hated him to such as his Uncle, Siblings, and all of his cousins.Two weeks before he had gone to college he had killed his Uncle with a broken piece of glass. It took the Local Police 1 year to find out about the murder, and it took them 1 months and 282 days for them to find out Kurt caused the murder. After 20 years in prison, once Kurt was released he was beat up by his to older brothers,Arnold and Anthony. 2 weeks later a nuke had hit four countries including Kurt’s. Kurt was on of few to survive, but had been mutated into a lizard and scorpion-like creature. He had covered his body with many pieces of ripped and old clothing to feel normal with the non-mutated survivors.After 7 weeks of the nuke explosions he had been hit by a few rocks on his forehead by a rock slide of a collapsing mountain.After finding a few other survivors he was given an old and rusty motorcycle with decent speed.

    Last and Final Entry that will have a working link

    Lexy Moore was a sassy,flirtatious girl that was a high attention to the boys at her High School. During her Sweet 16 she only invited the most popular boys and girls in her school, her best friends, and she even wrote down her own name in the list. Those in her family were not allowed to her party or the body guard she hired would have tied them up to the basement of her house. During that party a group of Pakistan terrorist had invaded and shot every person in the party for purposes of luring Lexy’s Dad (who was a General in the Marine force)and kill him at all costs.Lexy’s dad was found, but instead tied tighter until he was suffocated. The rest of Lexy’s family were left in the house and were bombed by stolen Air Force Jets. Lexy had been paralyzed though survived the bombing.Though the bombs were full of highly toxic and explosive bombs that spread all over Lexy’s state. The Pakistan Terrorists were also hit by the great force of their bombs. A mutagen plague had spread all over the world. Later the plague had gone wrong and the whole world was back to normal but the people had gone berserk and millions of people had been dieing. Lexy was still in the hospital getting highly powerful treatments until Saturday 1:49 P.M., a group of thugs and cannibals had attacked the hospital and 157 people were killed in this event. It was called Grief and Sickness because of the sadness created and all the sick patients killed. Lexy though had enough treatment to move again and was able to knock out one thug, steal his weapon, and save the surviving Docs, Nurses, and patients by killing the rest of the enemy. She was known as Avenging Alexis(Alexis is her real name). Though the last group of terrorist in Afghanistan once again bombed Lexy’s town but transformed them into creatures called Gammanoids. These creatures were savages that feast on blood and the heart. Lexy wasn’t powerful enough to handle these creatures so she fled into a group of warriors known as the “ROAD WARRIORS.” Lexy had met an unusual orange fox and kept it and a new ATV as her companions in her journey as a ROAD WARRIOR……

    Dogmeat (yes named for the Fallout 3 companion dog). As a young child, Dogmeat was an orphan in the nuked out shell of Chicago. He was gathered up at the age of 5 by slavers, and sold to a traveling combat troupe – that specialized in animal fighting. They would throw young children in with animals, and bet on how long the child would last. Dogmeat survived. He continued to survive for over a decade, until he was rescued by The Ranger. Dogmeat is mute, and rumored to be hideously scarred under his mask.

Highly intelligent, and able to mask his scent, and coloring when needed.

    I’ll post a bio for this one as soon as I can figure out what in the world I’ve done! It appears I made a wrong turn on my way to Mad Max country and ended up in the land of Tank Girl instead. But I’m pretty sure that even after the apocalypse, there will still be rock ‘n’ roll, flamethrowers and lightish-red choppers.

  94. Radd of the Wastes. Radd grew up on a farm out of the way of the violent and cruel wasteland. At 14 His family’s farm dried up, not reacting well to the wandering radiation the earth was now covered in. He grew up quick once his lively hood was taking away and took up the art of scavenging the the wastes. Currently he can be seen digging through abandoned cars or trading in Barter Town.

  96. I just updated and changed the character i posted on here. What should i do?

  97. http://s979.photobucket.com/albums/ae274/capttravis/?action=view&current=NightStalker2.jpg

    I decided to go ahead and post the updated version.

    This is a Night Stalker.

    No man has seen one and lived, nor has anyone ever killed one. In a post appocalyptic world there are many nomads who travel the empty desserts searching for pieces of a lost civilization. At night while these nomads sleep a different kind of being comes out to hunt. They feed on the humans that sleep, like packs of wolves they circle the victims and attack. They are gone before anyone can realize they were being watched by the creatures they call Night Stalkers.

  98. Third Final Submission

    Jynxy the Highway-Woman. Jynxy grew up a typical post-apocalyptic scavenger, searching through ruined buildings and cars, hoping she’d find next meal at the bottom of an overturned vending machine or in the glove compartment of a minivan. She continued this harsh lifestyle until she was robbed by a group of raiders several times. Fed up with her predicament she turned to literal highway robbery. Jynxy can now be seen charging merchant caravans and wastelanders “tolls” to cross her particular stretch of road.

    I also did a final update for my first submission Rivet.

  100. AlexEliades

    This is a mere Survivor.

    Jake Archer and his brother Terrence were working in their auto-workshop when the apocalypse occurred. Jake didn’t see what happened, but when his eyes opened, he saw his brother’s bones white and dry in a pile. He was in a room he did not recognize. The shop’s roof was gone, and only a few tools and a tire to their truck was left. He even lost a foot, but just a white bone stuck out, no blood coming from the leg. After the initial shock, he used his clever brain to use his brother’s bones as a staff, using the remaining tools to attach them together. He now roams the lands looking for food and shelter where he can find it. Along the way, he obtains weapons to protect himself (like the Uzi in the picture). Will he someday stop his nomadic journey and give his staff a burial?

    Blunderbass Mel Chisum was born shortly after Great Nuclear War. Her mother died during childbirth due to emaciation caused by radiation, which slightly affected Mel by giving her blue hair and complete heterochromia, but also improving her reflex, scent and range of eyesight. Her father, one of few soldiers surviving war unharmed, tought her everything he knew about firearms, explosives, hand-to-hand combat and survival, prepapring her well for living in polluted enviroment. When she was 21 she was ready to leave home and stride wastelands protecting settlers and ‘freaks’ like her from marauders. Badge attached to plate on her right tigh is a trophy from her first major kill, rogue sheriff attempting to exterminate mutants in his town. Her armament constists of father’s long-range rifle, hand grenades, two spiked knee pads, shoulder blade (useful in wrestling situations) and huge short-range pistol shooting nitroglycerine bullets. She bears tattoos all over her body for defeating dangerous enemies, except for face tattoo, which hides skin disorder caused by radiation.

    Okay…what’s going on? My post #113 was held in moderation, so I cleaned up the language and re-posted it, #117. But that one’s also in moderation, for no reason I can see. What exactly is the problem here?

  107. Neon, I can’t control what WordPress holds for moderation and what it doesn’t, I’m just its humble human servant. If you get the moderation message, don’t worry, I’ll get it approved the next time I’m at the computer. No big whoop.

  108. @Hammerknight: thanks

  109. My third and last entry, The Lizard King. He was heavily mutated while still in the womb when the bombs fell. He leads a band of other mutants on raids throughout the wastelands; raping, pillaging, and enslaving humans wherever they find them.

    OK Jeff, thanks for clarifying that — I thought maybe I was violating the comment guidelines for your blog, or worse. Also, thanks for deleting the duplicate comment; that won’t happen again.

  112. First Entry: Roadkill.
    Roadkill is a survivor, a scavenger and a bully. He likes hurting, maiming and killing people. And has enough skill, weapons and an car armed with wheel spikes and gattling guns.
    Radiation has scarred his body. He wears mismatched armour he has picked up from his victories. He also has a sniper scope monicle.

    (I hope it doesn’t count against me. HM3 froze on me after I realized the weopon hands had come UN-masked.
    I have pics of the steps where one then the other are masked before it totally froze on me, to prove they had been.)

  113. LoneWolf6155

    This is a typical member of the Hanging Skulls gang out on patrol around one of their many hideouts. The gang got their start as one of the many groups of bandits and outlaws that formed to take advantage of the chaos of the end of World War III. With most of U.S. Military and National guard guarding the borders, supporting the Reminants of Russia fighting the splinter New Red Army, and engauged in infrastrcture reconstuction efforts following the war.

    The Hanging Skulls make their home in the American Southwest. They prey on the convoys carring goods from city to city. The ones who forgot to pay their “protection dues” that is.

    The gang began as the Grinning Skulls. It is believed that many of the members or the founders came from military backgrounds due to the bandits use of tactics, intelligence, and military grade weaponry that “fell off the back of a truck.” Their name changed after ticking off the governor of Arizona, Jim Buntline. In a long expletive filled speech he singled out the Grinning Skulls and said that he would have every one of them hanged. The Grinning Skulls changed there name in mockery to this claim. Some senior members wear nooses around their necks as well. They have successfully eluded army forces and are now the most powerful bandit gang in Arizona.

  114. Road Warrior entry 2:
    Jack Robinson aka Grease Monkey.
    (I thought of something I thought others MIGHT not. Kids! Kids played an important role in the RW movies. From Mad Max’s slain family, Feral Kid in RW2 or the children of Barter Town in Beyond Thunderdome. So here is my Road Warrior kid entry)
    Jack had been raised in his family’s car garage buisness, now also a bunker and fortress. The family buisness is still in somewhat of a working order, due to fixing/jury-rig old and worn out things, scavenging for “new”, and occasionally being able to make bits they need.
    Jack/Grease Monkey has learned to be a survivor and reluctant fighter, since the death of his mother, 2 brothers, a sister-in-law, a nephew, a niece, an aunt and a cousin. It’s only Jack his father and uncle now. And both men are shadows of their former shelf. Leaving much of the work and defence to Jack. who is 16, quick, nimble, and crafty often using booby traps to safeguard The Garage and has an incredible car repair/tinkering talent overshadowing many adult men.
    Jack/Grease Monkey’s left side of his body has been scarred in a radiator incident.
    He wears tail light kneepads, a hubcap chest plate, a lug nut hangs from his ear, uses a YEILD sign as a shield and a large wrench as a weapon.

  115. LoneWolf6155

    Since this is a contest on characters. His name is Jim “Rattler” Wilson. He is one of the Hanging Skulls best marksman and a skilled mechanic who joined the gang shortly after recieving a dishonerable discharge from the Army.

  116. Roadblock.
    Perhaps it was years of raditation exposure that saved him, when Fred Blocker fell into a vat of radioactive concrete leaving Fred’s body hardened into a flexable concrete mutant with incredible strength and near invulnerability.
    Of course the process did effect Fred’s mind. He is not only slow of body but also of brain. But when those two flaws work against him its his strength and concrete body that saves him.

    (it was simple, but was rather proud of the bib overalls. the bib is an upside down top jacket panel.
    I had also given the fat body the wider shoulders instead of the slumped shoulders.)

  119. Before the Fallout, James Robbins was a successful zoologist working at the San Diego Zoo. After the Fallout and the mass destruction, he continues to study animals but now they are mutated and unrecognizable. He travels the deserts,crumbled cities and vast wastelands searching for animals in need. His faithful companion in this quest is his pet chimp Dominic. Who like most animals, has been forever altered by the Fallout. Large ears and tusk have sprouted from his head and he is also capable of speech and has a high level of mechanical knowledge allowing him to fix, build, etc any type of machinery, weapons, etc. James has taken the name THE DRIFTER…
