Character



RODD
"He keeps his past to himself, but Rodd's always been running from something.

Former stunt driver, turned racing legend, Rodd has made a reputation built on risk.
But, he's finally risked far too much by involving himself and his love Susie with gangsters that want them both dead."

Each of the characters portray a bit of myself I suppose, different aspects.
Rodd, obviously, represents my most ambitious nature...or my most naive.

Hopes, and regrets. Accomplishments, and mistakes. All of the characters in Rodd Racer represent certain experiences in my private, or professional life.

As much as I like the character, there is alot I really dislike.
Of all the character's in the story, I think Rodd is the one I put the most work into, but is the least familiar to myself.

I love seeing the continued work on this, Toby, and look forward to reading the complete story someday.

"Of all the characters in the story, I think Rodd is the one I put the most work into, but is the least familiar to myself."

This does seem befuddling. Still, perhaps Rodd's a kind of surrogate, for you the creator and ultimately for the readers?
