Vector the Crocodile


Vector the Crocodile is the leader and founder of the Chaotix Detective Agency. He makes recurring appearances in BearfootTruck's stories. Regardless, he is still doing his best to make a buck.

Backstory

ASMW

Vector was born in Hancock City – the capital of the Federal Republic of Columbia – to Hector the Crocodile and Nile the Crocodile. From an early age, Vector took an interest in water, whether it was lakes, rivers, oceans, etc… He was unhappy being constrained in an urban environment, where there were few opportunities for him to go swimming around. Undeterred, young Vector made some opportunities for himself, swimming in such unlikely places as the Devil's Gate River and the Amsterdam River. Unfortunately, he often became sick from doing this and even had to be hospitalized on a few occasions. Still, despite his parents’ disapproval, Vector was hardly fazed.

Then, one day, Vector challenged himself to swim as far as he could. Saying goodbye to his parents, he kept swimming…and swimming…and swimming. Finally, after swimming for so long, he ended up in Mobius. Eventually, he met up with Charmy Bee, Espio the Chameleon, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. Together, they struck up a unique friendship. Eventually, they would all go to a newly-opened theme park (except for Ray). Unfortunately, it was one of Dr. Robotnik's traps, and Vector was captured along with the three others who had gone along with him. Fortunately, Knuckles came to the rescue. Much later, Vector and his other friends founded the Chaotix Detective Agency.

Finally, after swimming for so long, he ended up going around the world to San Santos. While exploring the wilderness to the east of the city, he encountered Charmy Bee and Espio the Chameleon. By this time, Vector had gained a significant interest in solving the mysteries of the world, and sympathizing with Espio's quest to avenge his fallen master, he founded the Chaotix Detective Agency.

Sonic War Zone

Vector was born in Emerald City to Hector the Crocodile and Nile the Crocodile. From an early age, he proved to be a bright, outgoing and somewhat rebellious child. In school, he didn't get the best grades, but he always managed to pass, and he made a good amount of friends along the way. In the background, however, Mobius was fighting a Great War against the Roseinian Empire. Upon graduating high school, Vector knew he was gonna be drafted, so he ended up enlisting in the Mobian Marine Corps to appease the Recruitment Board. Though he passed boot camp, he wasn't one to be tied down to conventional military command structures, so as soon as he could, he ended up deserting. After a long while of conducting guerrilla warfare against the Roseinian Armed Forces, he met with Charmy Bee and Espio the Chameleon, forming the Chaotix as a mercenary group dedicated to taking on the Roseinians on their own terms.

Personality

Vector is a gruff and tough kind of guy, which can make him appear to be rude. However, deep down, he's got a good heart and has even been known to take on cases for free. For example, he will help little children find their lost toys for free. Though Vector is interested in money, he won't do anything illegal for cash. His excellent leadership skills have kept the Chaotix in business, too. Despite his leadership skills, though, he’s not exactly the most straightforward thinker, but he’s far from a complete dummy.

Appearance

Vector's appearance is exactly the same as his canon counterpart.

Abilities

Despite his immense bulk and slow running speed, Vector is still capable of doing the Spin Jump and Spin Dash moves that other Sonic characters are capable of. He also has immense physical strength, which allows him to perform a variety of special attacks, including the Power Boost, where he charges shoulder-first at an enemy, much like Wario. Also, like Wario, he can also do a ground pound attack, called the Jump Attack. Like a real crocodile, Vector's jaws are immensely strong, in fact, strong enough to crush hardened steel. And like any good crocodile, he's an excellent swimmer. Vector is also a gifted musician, especially on keyboards.

Items & Weapons

Vector doesn't need any weapons given his size and strength. His main item is a pair of headphones that he wears all the time. However, he does have an M60 machine gun in Sonic War Zone

And Down Will Come Sonic – Cradle and All

When Espio takes notice of increased troop movements in Eggopolis, Vector calls Sally and tells her about it. He also notifies her when Espio locates “Robotnik's megaweapon. In both cases, Charmy attempts to interrupt by singing songs over the radio mike, much to Vector’s annoyance.

Other stories

Sonic's Weird Birthday

Vector – along with Charmy and Espio – worked on a 1970 Chevy Camaro Z/28 for Sonic's birthday. He is a bit insulted when the Blue Blur questions the awesomeness of the gift before even seeing it. Nevertheless, Vector is excited to tell Sonic all of the unique features of the car. When Ol' Blue questions his need for a car, Vector cites the All-Star Races as a time when he used a car. Sonic decides to take it for a spin, and Vector hands him the keys after calling shotgun. Unlike Charmy and Espio, Vector is terrified by Sonic's driving and is hugely relieved once the car comes to a stop, vowing not only to get Big Blue a sweater for his next birthday, but also never to get in a car with him again. When Espio knocks out the FCC agents with a blowgun, Vector is horrified, thinking that the two were killed.

A Dark Birthday

Vector offers his condolences to Sonic before showing him the cars that he got for Shadow and Rouge's birthday. He rejects Sonic's idea to get them faster cars, citing the Blue Blur's shenanigans with the Camaro.
