Character Name: Gene Ruttish
Age: 22

Stats:
					Handling: 10
					Armor: 1
					Sp. Weapon: 4
					Speed: 8
How to Unlock: After you beat Cousin Eddy on the stage "LA Wood",
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...
