aka "Jon Jon the Phenomenon"
Middle class precinct of a large metropolitan city
Skin/Fur Shade: Light gray fur. Pink ears and nose.
Hair: A three inch high lime green Mohawk
Eyes: Large and with lime green contacts. Underneath, his eyes are very nearsighted and yellow.
Friends: Ryo and Chad. He is very solitary, despite his love of showing off.
Family: Two older brothers going to college and living away from
home. A Mother and Father
who are both supportive almost to the point of spoiling their youngest
son. His mother is a well
known lawyer and his father is a salesman for timeshares.
No time, and no one can keep up with him.
Not much of a social life outside the skate scene.
A significantly large scab and burn collection over his entire
Huge ears, tiny muzzle, thin fluffy neck, long thin arms and
waist, strong well built legs, large clawed feet that can grip as well
wings are evolved enough to have hands and a pose able
thumb with a little bit of webbing between his fingers.
There is enough wing membrane along his arms to half glide half
parachute down from high aerial stunts, but he cannot fly or stay
airborne for more than a few minutes.
White A-shirt, baggy green cargo shorts with black drawstrings on
it just gets in the way.
Excels in vert skating more because of his build than anything
else. He has a great sense
of timing in stage direction and dialogue, and has a couple play scripts
he’s been working on.
He has managed to build his own style of vert skating off of the
leverage he gets from his wings and his ability to grip the skateboard
deck with his feet. He’s
also a master at combat style video games.
Best class subjects are History and Drama.
He is secretly a member of the Shakespeare society.
Being in the spotlight, sushi, improving his tricks, action
movies, arcades, traveling and performing in new places.
Personality: Jon Jon
has a great front of being the “too cool for you” macho kid, but
underneath he is his worst critic.
Appearance and style are his top priorities.
He believes that the best way to rank ones talent is by how well
one is sponsored and how many skateboard
demo tapes one is starring in. He
has great admiration for skaters who are the same level or better than
him, but due to his bad social skills, his shyness always comes across
as arrogance around them. He
feels like an outcast in anything not relating to plays or
Jon Jon’s style of skating was so different from anyone
else’s when he was first learning, that none of the professionals knew
what to make of it. He got
a lot of criticism about it looking sloppy, especially when his wings
would slow him down on the ramps. He
would lose the little bit of thrust he was able to get from his tiny
His parents had
always pushed him to be competitive since their own jobs were both win
or lose fields. Competing
at different skate parks became his fastest way of getting any positive
attention. His outlandish
style also got him noticed by skateboard companies who were looking for
something original for their videos.
Watching how some of the more professional videos were done was
what sparked his interest in directing and acting.
Jon’s dream is to skate every country in the world at least once, but
his more realistic goal is to become a published playwright or director.
His body heats up very quickly and has no means of cooling down
fast enough beyond exerting heat through his wings and ears.
To make up for it he drinks and douses himself in about twice his
weight in water every day.
