Rudolf the Gecko is a member of the Egg Ruin Renegades, and serves as the group's mechanic.
A fairly lanky crested gecko who stands a little over three feet tall, Rudolf has a short muzzle with slit nostrils, a pair of large, scaly crests going from his eyebrows down to the back of his head, and a somewhat long, tapering tail; he also has a short, thin crest running down his tail.
His scales are primarily fire brick in color, with a rosewood stripe running from the top of his head down to the tip of his tail, while his muzzle, chest, and stomach are earth yellow in color, as are the markings around his eyes. He has no hair on his head, and his eyes are tangerine in color.
He dresses simply, often opting to wear a brown vest, a tool belt around his waist, brown boots and thick leather gloves, as well as a blue ascot.
Rudolf grew up in a small Mobian settlement near the United Federation city-state of Mazuri. Both his mother and father were mechanics, and taught their son the trade. They made a living repairing things for not only the people in their hometown, but for the people of Mazuri as well.
A fairly adept combatant in his own right, Rudolf is nevertheless not as strong as the likes of Sharifa or even Kahina; while he is capable of hand-to-hand combat, his main strength comes in the form of his mechanical expertise. In fact, after he joined the Egg Ruin Renegades (which only consisted of Sharifa and Kahina at the time), he was the one who got the only undamaged roboticizer up and running, so that Kahina's damaged tail could be fixed.
He is a Pyrokinetic of moderate skill, often relying on ranged attacks to keep his enemies at bay. He can also use his wrench as a weapon, and, being a gecko, he is capable of adhesive climbing.
As he can manipulate fire, he can form it into a small, concentrated and incredibly hot flame; While it has little-to-no combative use, it allows him to weld metal.
Rudolf also creates many of the tools used by the Egg Ruin Renegades; among these are smoke grenades that are mostly used by Niklas the Osprey, the group's scout.
Rudolf is fairly resistant to the Elements of Fire and Nature. He is also quite agile, able to dodge slow-moving opponents and attacks with ease. Being a species suited for life in the desert, he can also easily tolerate hot and dry weather.
Rudolf is weak to the Elements of Ice and Earth. His defenses aren't anything special, therefore he mostly relies on his agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. His physical strength is also less than stellar, making him falter heavily in hand-to-hand combat. As a reptile, cold weather is quite dangerous to him.

A generally upbeat and cheery gecko, Rudolf has always held a fascination for machinery. He spends much of his time tinkering with the old and broken machines littered about the Egg Ruins, trying to fix them so that he and his comrades can actually use them.
He's quite adept at keeping his temper, but if pushed to his furthest limits, will fly into a tantrum and lash out. These episodes are quite rare, thankfully. He seems to get irritated whenever he gets interrupted, but usually not enough to make him fly into a rage.
He seems to be best friends with Niklas the Osprey, but often finds himself irritated with the bird's naivety.
