    Name of Vehicle: ATV
    Character Name: Gene Ruttish
    Age: 22
    Ht: 5'9"
    Wt: 185 Ibs.

    					Handling: 10

    					Sp. Weapon: 4
    					Speed: 8

    you will have him unlocked.
    
    Story:
    	Gene Ruttish had always fancied himself a ladies' man...
    unfortunately no one ever told the ladies. All his life he'd tried one
    crazy ATV stunt after another in the vain attempt to gain their favor.
    For years he's been living by the credo, "Bones heal. Chicks dig scars.
    Glory lasts forever." Years of trying crazy stunts have made him quite
    the skilled driver and willing risk-taker. Joining Cousin Eddy's caravan
    has given him a place to show off his skills and Twisted Metal is his
    latest attempt to "wow" the women. Gene knows exactly what he wants from
    Twisted Metal. When he wins, he will ask Calypso to make him the most
    desired man on the planet.

    Story:
    	More than a decade ago, Axel was imprisoned in a massive, two-
    wheeled contraption by his father. At the end of Twisted Metal 2, he
    confronted his father about this and he was told he'd have to spend
    another decade imprisoned. In a show of defiance, he tore his arms free
    from the contraption and disappeared. Even though he was now free, he
    found he couldn't handle living without the thing he'd been part of for
    so long. He felt like he'd lost a part of his body. Axel met a doctor
    who constructed cybernetic arms and feet that would allow him to drive
    the vehicle once again, on the condition that Axel would have to turn
    over his wish should he win Twisted Metal.

    Story:
    	Cousin Eddy was born in a backwater Ozarks pigsty called Sour
    Creek. You won't find it on any map. A textbook case of what can go
    wrong when cousins marry cousins, Eddy was the strongest man in town by
    the time he was ten, though his malformed, inbred brain had stopped
    developing at age three. Eddy only had two loves: "smashin' things" and
    collecting "shiny things". By age thirteen he owned all of the shiny
    things in Sour Creek. After he'd finished his smashing the place was
    kind of lonely, so he wandered off in search of more shiny things and
    more things to smash. When he stumbled across the Twisted Metal
    competition he thought he'd found paradise. Eddy had gathered a band of
    drifters - "cousins" he called them - who he coerced by brute strength
    into helping him transform RV into a nightmare killing machine. Now he
    could blast his way into Twisted Metal. So much to smash. So many shiny
    things...
