Captain Rad Profit Danger Trouble Dudesman[DJW 1] is a tough-as-nails alien who made his first major appearance in Rad. His occupation is mercenary-for-hire and smuggler. He will take on any job or transport any cargo, as long as he's paid well.
Rad is a duck-like alien with light-blue skin and a blue beak.
Rad wears a beige shirt with three black stripes and a belt with some equipment on it. He has a helmet with an attached black visor.
A trigger-happy duck, Rad has an aggressive personality, often getting angry when someone stops him from shooting his target. His reputation is considerable, as many of the patrons of the Black Hole bar were intimidated by his presence.
Since he is a mercenary, Rad is generally agreeable as long as he is paid.
Rad can become more cold-hearted and uncaring, having no concern for the well being of others. For example, he had no qualms throwing Ben out his ship and preferred leaving him on Anur Transyl. Additionally, Rad is not very forgiving, as he refused to answer to Ben after the latter accidentally broke the replacement part of his ship, the Lovely Duck, that was necessary to starting it up again.
When he gets very aggressive, Rad makes notable duck noises.
