Character Sheet for Ricky Hamilton
Derpy Herp, Tricky/Sticky Ricky, Chucklehead #1 (by Rusty), Sugar-snake (by Maxxie)
A chocolate-brown-scaled, cream-scuted English Rattlesnake, adopted into a family of Scottish foxes (the Hamiltons). Sings for the band "Whyte Knuckle"
The word that can best describe Ricky is "irrepressible". He's loud, he's proud, he's rude and he's crude. He'll put on the performance of a lifetime, every time! When it comes to women, he's quite a "snake-charmer", and so he spends his time coming up with one-liners/chat-up lines such as the following:
“I’m like your thighs: I do go on a bit!”
“I’m full of myself, am I? I suppose I am! Would you like to be full of me too?”
“I’ve got more one-liners than you’ve got grey hairs!”
Likes: 80's glam metal, large cuts of meat, imitating voices, getting into trouble with Maxxie Black.
Oh, and ass as well. Big, thick, round bumcheeks that he can kiss/stick his face into.
Dislikes: the whole "snakes are evil" thing, being hungry
Born to an abusive father and a non-committal mother, Ricky’s life was miserable. His father would relentlessly mock him, citing that, because he had "un-natural" things like hair and legs, he brought shame to their name. Ricky just couldn't take it anymore. So, on the eve of his 17th birthday, Ricky ran away to commit suicide. He ran into a nearby outdoor freezer (reptiles don't like the cold) and awaited death's cold embrace.
But the Hamiltons weren't having any of that. Rusty Hamilton happened to be looking out of his bedroom window at that exact moment and spotted the doomed snake crawling into the refrigeration unit. He rushed outside and pulled Ricky out before death could claim him.
Living with people that weren't utter bastards quickly got rid of his depression, and he learned to express himself. Rusty introduced him to the musical phenomenon of "heavy metal" and artists like Van Halen, Poison and Whitesnake.
But he didn't become the animal he is today until he met Maxxie Black...

Strangely for a reptile, Ricky has hair, which is orangey-blonde and hangs over his left eye. Both eyes are blood red and have vertical slits for pupils. Inside his hyper-extendable mouth are two 3.5 inch fangs which contain a deadly venom (but he's not the type to use it). His body is fairly thin, despite his voracious appetite. His feet are rather large (you know what that means!) and have three taloned toes on each, not unlike a dinosaur's.
Ricky believes that "more is less" when it comes to clothing. All he ever wears are his wristwarmers and a pair of tights, usually in animal print and adorned with a selection of very 80's items, like studded belts, scarves and handcuffs. His favourite are his tiger-print ones.
As explained above, Ricky usually has at least one pair of handcuffs on him.
But the main thing he carries is his "Piercing Scream" microphone, a microphone with a large Bowie Knife on the handle.
