Pixel the Dustchaser

Well, here is one of my fan characters. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, meet Pixel, the jacktah. She's more commonly known as a dustchaser, but she prefers to be called a dog.

The collar around her neck is my little tribute to the movie, Up. She can "talk" when her collar is on and around her neck. She sometimes does not speak a lot, but when she does, she's got a fiery tomboyish voice to match her adventurous and spirited attitude!

Warning: This part is for a fanfic I am currently thinking of writing, so...SPOILER ALERT.

Pixel was originally Dr. Ozma Furbanna's partner in helping her track down animals and sometimes acting as a herding dog to keep them out of harm's way, thanks to her amazing speed. But sometime afterwards, she was captured by the Chlorms.

Part of her body was lost in an accident/experiment by the Chlorms. Thus, her lower half has had to be rebuilt as a robot! Turns out the Chlorms were hired by Zurg to turn animals like Pixel into fierce fighting machines, even stronger than the Hornets! Luckily, Ozma, Ty Parsec, and Team Lightyear were able to work together and take down the Chlorms and arrest them. But they couldn't have done it without Pixel and her superspeed! Ozma saw how well Pixel and Ty got along well together, mainly because Ty knows what it's like to be a robot...and so, Ozma gave Star Command Pixel, who is now one of the fastest Rangers in the Space Rangers Corps.

EDIT: Explanation for how the collar works: It takes a reading of the movement of her vocal chords and translate it into the Basic language. Explanation provided by ab103 since I forgot to mention how the collar works! xO

Also, there are two buttons on the side of her collar. One is used as a dial for sending in signals of any kind; distress, item/person found, etc. The other button is used to receive and take calls from Ozma or the Rangers. She can press them with her nose, making it easy for her to communicate.

On her lower half of her body, she has a jet pack on her back that can activate when she wills it to, since it is part of her body. She can also will her cyborg body to cover her upper half and provide a space helmet whenever she has to go into space, and she has claws that can extend out of her back paws as easily as she can do with her front ones. Her tail can be used not only as a lasso and whip, she can also use it to mold it into a claw/hand to interact with her environment. The tail is also pretty extendable as well.

I'm also going to post a personality profile on her, to help give a general idea of what she's like. So without further ado...Ahem.


Name: Pixel
Nicknames: Furball, Pixie (Although she HATES being called that!)
Age: In Jacktah years, 3 years old, in human years, 21 years old
Height: 3 feet (a bit taller than XR, with ears), tail is 125 inches long
Weight: 150 pounds
Gender: Female
Species/Race: half dustchaser, half robot
IQ: 100
Marital Status: Single
DOB: 7/25
Birth Place: In a desert/jungle (Verdentia)
Residence: Star Command/Capital Planet
Occupation: Space Ranger
Status: Rookie for 8 months
Rank: Cadet
Team Position: Navigator/Ship specialist (she's part robot after all)
Social Class: Can be seen as a bit of a tomboy
Alignment: Good

Abilities and Aptitudes:

*She can run as fast as the speed of sound, at approximately 765 mph. But if she is under extreme duress, she can push herself to break the sound barrier.

*Having traits of a herding dog, she is quite capable of herding animals or even people into a tight group, keeping them out of harm's way.

*Her acute sense of smell and hearing is top-notch as she can pick up sounds other people can't normally pick up, like high-pitched noises or loud booms in the distance. Pixel's sense of smell is also unique, like any other dog's, as she can pick up a scent from miles away, whether it's a missing person or a ticking bomb.

*Needless to say, as a generally predatory animal, she comes with fangs and claws. They can help her tear her way through many things, leaving a mark on whomever she targets.

*Having a robotic tail, she can use it like a lasso to catch an enemy or to rescue a hostage and use it as a hand in general.

*Her running also enables to become quite an agile leaper, able to jump at long distances and even heights, as well as Ty!

*Being an animal herself, she possesses a vast amount of animals and nature in general, even capable of talking to them using her own vocal sounds to communicate with them, which range from coyote sounds to wolf sounds.

Hobbies and Talents:

*Being a speedster, she loves racing with other creatures and her friends, often tempted to run at her most natural speed, and wanting to prove that she is one of the fastest, if not THE fastest, creatures around in the galaxy.

*She loves to babysit for little kids and LGMS, having a bit of a soft spot for them.

*Although she's active most of the time, she also loves to sleep.

Weaknesses:

*Breaking the sound barrier is already a tough job for her, but if she breaks the sound barrier while she's hurt or if she's already tired, she'll become exhausted, as it takes more out of her, leaving her wiped of energy.

*Because she's a fast runner, she sometimes can't slow down in time to stop herself from crashing into other objects or people, which is why she needs a lot of room to run around, thus her need to go to Capital Planet more often sometimes than Star Command.

*When she's in space or in a place where there is a lack of oxygen, she has to make her lower half of her body become a suit to cover up the rest of her body and head, using her instinct to command her lower half to cover up the rest of her body. Thus, she also can't use her fangs to help her fight, or her nose to help her in a case, leaving her to use her claws and tail to help her fight, and her ears to pick up anything suspicious.

*When her nose is plugged up, if she has a cold for example, it messes up her sense of smell, leaving her to pick up too many things at once. She's also allergic to cobwebs.

*Like all dogs, her ears are sensitive to high-pitched whistles. When she hears those kind of whistles, it hurts her ears like heck and causes her to slow down, until the noise has ceased.

*She can also be blunt to the point of rudeness, sometimes clashing with other Rangers' opinions and attitudes, like Simone's more quiet nature. Pixel just doesn't believe there's anything point in hiding something unless it's necessary, but until then, she'll be quick to point out whatever is needed to say with no regrets.

*She normally doesn't lose her temper to an extreme, but if you make the grave mistake of harming her friends, or worse, calling her PIXIE...she will be ready to tear you apart and toss you into the nearest abandoned moon! She hates being called Pixie, as she thinks it's a stupid and silly name that doesn't fit her.

Greatest friends: Ty Parsec, Simone Caldera, Dr. Ozma Furbanna

Other friends: Team Lightyear (although she sometimes picks on XR because she finds him loud at times), Daphne Thornhoof
Enemies: Zurg, Chlorms

Gourmet of Choice: Fish, small birds, grasses, melons, other fruits, the occasionally leftover meats

Beverage: water or milk

Likes: playing, running/racing, chasing, sleeping, being with her pack, looking after children/LGMs, asking questions, the coast, singing

Dislikes: bad guys, XR (sometimes), baths, anyone messing with her friends (she considers her friends to be her pack), silent whistles, cheating

Pixel is quite a sight, isn’t she? This tough jacktah, also known as a dustchaser, is an enthusiastic and adventurous critter, always in search of some excitement or adventure. She’ll also boast with pride about others’ talents, but not to the extent Booster does, because unlike Booster, she knows when to boast about someone or something and when not to be, keeping her mouth shut when it’s a bad time to show her enthusiasm.

Although she doesn't always "speak", Pixel is also a very blunt creature, preferring to cut straight to the point and tell others what needs to be told rather than being sensitive about it, since she believes there’s no point in hiding something from others. This can lead to conflict, and sometimes even arguments, with Simone’s more sensitive nature. Her tendency to be blunt and brash can often get her mouth into trouble with her friends and fellow Space Rangers, marking her as a bit of a fiery tomboy.

But her brashness, for her, is a big advantage for to be brave in battle, showing her enemies, no matter how scary or big they are, that she’s not afraid to take them down. When in battle, she’ll fight long and hard, even to the point of exhaustion, to protect her fellow Space Rangers and others from harm. She’d rather die than have others harmed, even XR, whom she shares a sometimes frustrating friendship with.
Pixel’s devotion to protect her friends is part of her strong loyalty to them and her family. No matter the outcomes, she’ll stand by her friends and their trials, like her new owner and partner Ty Parsec, even if everyone else is against it, since she really doesn’t care what others think. She’s also a bit of a prankster, and she’s not above pulling harmless pranks on them, thus making her a bit immature. However, if the prank she set up for a particular person is pulled on someone else who was not the intended victim, she’ll apologize and try to fix it.

But she's not always brash. She can also be very motherly, as she's willing to step up to the role of caretaker if she needs to be, offering a nuzzle or a lick to comfort someone if they are in pain, and being there by their side. However, while this is not rare, it's not very often she steps up as a caring figure, as she doesn't actively become one if she doesn't see the need to. In addition to her soft side, she’s also very curious, often asking questions about things she’s genuinely interested in learning about. Sometimes her curiosity can get the better of her, and gets her nose stuck where it doesn’t belong. But she means well, as she learns from her mistakes (most of the time).

But as much as brash, curious, and blunt as she is, Pixel is a very brave and devoted Ranger to have in the Space Ranger Corps, and will do her best to be there when the fight is on or when a friend is in danger, whether it’s through her sharp fangs and claws, or her sharp sense of humor. Her speed and knowledge on the animal kingdom may be some of the best traits she has about her, but her greatest contribution to Star Command is that of a true-blue loyal friend.

Themesong: "I'm a Supergirl" by Shonen Knife, "Sonic Boom" by Pastiche

Trivia:
*Pixel likes to sing, but she sings when she's alone. She doesn't like boasting about it, and it's something she does when she's up to it.

*She might be a Ranger, but she's still a dog, so she's still prone to have some dog-like tendencies. One of them is that she hates baths. Mention that word, and she'll be off and far away!


Whew! I know it's a lot of information to absorb, but I hope she's a good character. I've put a lot of effort into creating her, thanks to OC guides, and my own imagination. If you have any questions about her, go ahead and ask! I'd be happy to answer. Smile

Wow, you've certainly put a lot of effort into the character development department! Pixel sounds like a nice and quite interesting character. She seems to get along well with quite a few people!

Pixel's backstory seems quite intriguing. The Chlorms working with Zurg! What a great combination. Throw in Spyro Lepton and you have the complete collection of disgraced and mad scientists! I really like the relationship that seems to develop between Ty and Pixel, and why it does so.

Does Pixel have an existing homeworld/race? Are they all sentient?

Oh, thank you! Yeah, I wanted to put in some effort and hard work into making an OC since OCs sometimes don't always have a lot of information on them, making them seem somewhat one-dimensional. I wanted to create some OCs that had three-dimensional qualities to them.

She does get along well with some people, true...except for XR. xD
She thinks he's annoying and a bit of a loudmouth, and she's sometimes annoyed by both Booster and XR when they get into trouble. Pixel also gets pretty snappy and irritated when someone calls her Pixie. She hates it. Razz xD

Spyro? Heh, that would be cool...except he's not corrupted by the crystals anymore. xD But yeah, I can see the Chlorms working with Zurg since they are scientists. I think Zurg would probably find their science intriguing and try to work with them. But knowing Zurg, it probably wouldn't last. xD

I'm glad you like the relationship that Ty and Pixel develop. I wanted to do things with their relationship, actually.

1. I wanted to give Ty some background information since we know little to nothing about him, save the Buzz-saving-him thing. So I gave him a soft spot for dogs. And he'd be good with them, as Pixel will generally listen to Ty when it comes to commands. Heck, he's the only one she'll really listen to, with a few exceptions, of course. Razz

2. I wanted to create a four-legged creature who is like a "pet" in a way. I mean, in the US Armed Forces, they'll sometimes use dogs to help them in their work. So I thought why not make a character that fits that description and works with Star Command? And well, the rest is history.

She was actually, according to my notes, born on the planet of Verdentia (from the episode Haunted Moon). Since not much was known about that planet, except that it loves peace, I'd figure I would give it some information on it. I didn't include that because she was sent away to another planet to assist people in herding, hunting, etc.

As for her race, they are pretty smart creatures. They're kind of like dobermans in a way. Dobermans are very intelligent creatures, and they're also very protective of their families. They will usually obey commands (most of the time, anyway!) The collar on Pixel's neck is something I borrowed from Up because I wanted to make Pixel be able to talk without actually making her talk, if you know what I mean. And it's a little tribute to that movie, as it's one of my favorites. Smile
