Río the Alligator is a powerful Mobian alligator, resident of the Evergreen Glades, and leader of the Glades Gang.
Río has red scales with a pinkish tinge, with a pale yellow underside. His build and shape is much like Vector's, but Río has a shorter, wider snout, and a longer, thicker tail. He also has ocean green eyes. Río has three rows of pinkish-red spikes down his back starting at the back of his head, with the first scale of the middle row being the largest. As the rows go down his back, they thin out to a single row down his tail. On his forearms, Río wears metal guards that look similar to torch heads. On his hands he wears plain white gloves. Río wears white shoes with red accents/highlights as well, along with an open black khaki with pale yellow palm-leaf designs on the shirt.
Being an alligator, Río is quite strong, able to smash thick trees with his tail and mangle steel bars with his powerful jaws. Despite having average running speed, Río has incredibly fast reflexes, able to strike out at an enemy in an instant. In water however, Río can swim quite fast, and lash out at enemies even faster.
However, what makes Río especially strong is the fact that he is capable of controlling both fire and water elements. However, Río almost never uses hydrokinesis; the only time he uses it is to move faster in water, or to keep himself moist and hydrated when not near a body of water. However, Río is able to do so with no visible indication, as if it is second nature for him, indicating a high level of mastery. Río does not have the same level of mastery over the element of fire, and even then only uses it to breathe fire or blow scalding hot steam from his nostrils.
Being capable of controlling the elements of both water and fire gives Río an additional power as well; control over the Boil element.
Río is a laid-back character, who often prefers to relax. However, Río is very territorial concerning what happens in his group's area, and won't let people "do what they want on his turf". He takes actions against those who live in his territory as an attack on his pride, and will immediately take retributionary action against whoever is responsible. Río has a special soft-spot for kids and other innocent people, and will become lethally furious if such people are injured or brought into the middle of fights between gangs. Río usually puts up the image of a tough gangster head, though he finds stereotypical "gangsta talk" to be quite annoying. Despite this disposition, Río will often lend a helping hand to friends and bystanders if he isn't busy. Río typically has a tough time believing or trusting "big-time lawmen" like G.U.N. members and members of rival gangs, but will listen when urged to or given no other choice.
