Short Biography


Ricochete (commonly referred to as Rico)
Kangaroo (EG mod Jilaic)
Golden orange/ yellow with black stripes, dark green eyes.


Cere, Ash, Rebound, Outback


One of the five Kangaroos to be genetically-engineered by Exotica Genoworks, they were given over to the Fox militia, where they were abused. She escaped with the other Kangaroos and first took refuge with a Fox family, and eventually left and made their way to Centralis. It would be there that they would receive citizenship and make something of their lives.

After the Centralis War, They would receive their ship and christen it, Independence. They would make regular shipping routes to various worlds, including Earth. It would be there that they would meet up with Mako, and pick up Tamera, Rayne, and Darrik.

In later comics, they would find a derelict Fox ship and discover a Tree Kangaroo who is connected to the ship's computer. They name her Nil and make her a part of their crew. Upon returning to Centralis, they go on a little R and R to Sunset Haven, along with Zax (except for Outback who wants to remain behind to look after Nil). Rico, along with Rebound, would accompany Ash to find Raquel.
