Tropers / Mutant Rancor
Mutant Rancor is a college student working toward a degree in library science, and an aspiring author. He lives in a small town nobody has ever heard of (except, apparently, Wikipedia). [Somehow, it's kind of strange seeing one's own life summed up in two sentences. So I'll add more.] If you need to use a nickname, Ran will do, or you could use his real name, Jake. [Wait, I think I just gave you enough information to locate me in Real Life.... Crud.] His YouTube account. Talk to him here. [
No, I have no idea why it didn't put a button on the top of the page like normal. If I figure out how to get it there, I'll move it there. If you can tell me how on the linked discussion page, it would be most appreciated. It seems to have been fixed. Thanks to whoever did that...Frank75, was it?]
He is 180 cm tall and 65 kilos (or 5'11" and 150 lbs, approximately, to his fellow Americans), has shaggy light-brown hair and Stoic Spectacles, and is pale and somewhat lacking in musculature from sitting at a computer most of the day. One might even say he's a bit...Bishōnen. Except for the stubborn acne.
His interests include Anime, Manga, Webcomics, Abridged Series, (heck, fiction in general,) martial arts (though he has not yet joined a dojo or otherwise received training), and cooking (though he's still learning).
He is straight, male (with all this speaking-in-the-third-person, you'd better have already figured that out), twenty years old, American (but not an Eagle Land American, as you probably guessed from his use of metric instead of the Imperial/Customary system), and has strange taste in girls. To be more specific, he thinks girls are most attractive when they're not trying to be—no skirts, no makeup, minimal jewelry, no heels, just a shirt and blue jeans. Also, short hair (optional). And glasses (also optional). Preferably without the Most Common Superpower. Function over looks, or as Ash from Misfile said it, substance as opposed to appearance. And all this falls by the wayside when personality comes into play. (Intelligent, tough, reliable, and independent, if you must know.)
He's also single, has never been otherwise, and does not see this fact changing any time soon. Unfortunately.
If it matters to you (which it shouldn't, really, but still), he's a Protestant Christian.
Also, a conservative, but something of an unusual one in that his most despised things in the world are prejudice and Double Standards. He votes Republican because they don't raise the taxes..as much....
He tends toward Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness in his verbal interactions, but tries to avoid Purple Prose in his writings. Probably related to his mild Asperger's Syndrome and high-level mastery of the English language. (He sucks at math, though.)
He is definitely a loner (member 97 of the Freaky Loners Association of TV Tropes, in fact), and as such has few friends. He values the ones he has very highly, though, so don't insult them. Ever.
Mutant Rancor is a fan of Star Wars, Discworld, Naruto, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, and for that matter any good story well told. (Except for the filler.) His favorite series (yet) is YuYu Hakusho. He's most certainly an Otaku for anime and manga.
He is currently working on a fantasy novel that vaguely resembles a fusion of Dragon Ball, Star Wars (without the, you know, space thing), Fullmetal Alchemist, Avatar: The Last Airbender, YuYu Hakusho, and classic sword-and-sorcery fantasy, with just a pinch of The Bartimaeus Trilogy thrown in for good measure. Hopefully it'll get published so he can start putting it on this wiki. And remember: Magic A Is Magic A!
