I like it, but the tediore part seems a bit strange, most other characters don't hone in on one manufacturer. The rest is awesome, especially the skag idea.

I would be willing to pay for this character.

Is he kinda like Don Quixote? Like he thinks he's a gallant knight but isn't? That could be interesting.
