King Of The Cobbles

Speed Demon

The Speed Demon lives for speed, he is speed.  He is so damn fast the hairs on his legs don’t grow due to the high wind environment that they live in.  He is so fast that they had to add an extra digit to his speedo to clock top speed.

The Speed Demon is obsessed about speed and has been all his life.  The training wheels on his first bike at the age of 6mths were specially modified to reduce drag.  He was the only kid to work on his billy cart race position in the local wind tunnel.  He was the youngest kid to be accepted into the Air-force’s Top Gun Academy at the age of 13.

NASA comes to the Speed Demon for lessons on handling speed.

The Midnight Daredevil is the lost brother of The Daredevil.  They’re twins that were separated at birth.  The Daredevil does his shit by day while the Midnight Daredevil does his by glow of the midnight moon.

Some say his moves are more insane, but no one really knows because he is never seen, just heard.  No flashing lights for the Midnight Daredevil, he does his moves by using the force.

As the sun rises and most bike riders are pumping up their tyres and heading out for the day the Midnight Daredevil is pumping up his altitude tent to 8000m and get a much needed rest.

One day in a particular fierce battle that had lasted for 3 weeks he finished off the last of the enemy. He turned around to celebrate with his army, but found that they had all been left behind. Realising he had single-handedly defeated the enemy he put his arms in the air in victory while riding across the battle line.
