This is Ranger Anterhog. I've been struggling to get this guy drawn adequately for years but finally produced a piece I'm happy with. Most of it being related to his quirky species (He was originally created as a half dog/half deer, but now he's just a Jackrabbit). The most recent image of him I wasn't fond of cause his face looked too flat and his expression didn't really look right. Ultimately I like this piece a lot better.
1. Of all Starmaninjians, I think Ranger went through the most species changes. Originally being a dog, then a Deer/Dog hybrid, and eventually a rabbit. Yes I'm using Earth species names cause this was before I made up my own species. Ironically, though Jackrabbits are a thing on earth, Ranger is considered a hybrid, being half Klapiko, half Lagorizu. Even stranger is his mother is also a hybrid, but part Spinerizu. His father is a pure Faunapiko (deer).
2. The boots he's wearing are technically Starmaninjian style boots. They wrap around and kind of zip on the other side of the foot where it meets the sole. The toes are always exposed cause making material that wraps around them would make it impossible to wear unless it was a sock. Thier toes are the widest part of their foot. He just wears the boots cause it makes him look a little tougher.
3. While Ranger seems like he'd be related to Spring (his eventual wife), he's not. Spring is related to Emerald though, but Ranger doesn't have any lagorizu ancestors. It's just the Rizu gene that made him into a Lagorizu. He is related to Seedle as Maple and Aurora are sisters.
4. Whether Ranger Mountain was named after him or he was named after Ranger Mountain is a mystery. They were both named at the same time really as before he was born, The Stars just referred to the Mountain as "the Mountain".
5. I really am not certain what his lastname may end up being. I just stuck with Anterhog after his mother. Something about it just worked for me (note Anter, not Antlerhog, easier to pronounce). Still don't be surprised if his last name eventually changes when I figure out what it should be. I've changed a few other last names on my site like Tricera's. Oh, and fun fact: Despite being named Ranger, he only started acting like one after an explosion burned off all of his mother's fur. He normally acts like a mechanic enthusiast.
