    Daveybird Randle
RSR's fictional CEO and virtual representation of Dee Jay's real self!!

Daveybird Randle is the mascot, spokesperson, and persona for Dee Jay Randle in RSR, who is something of a loose cannon for the RSR team. He doesn't play well with others, and that is why he formed RSR, making almost every decision. He's a guy with a Cardinal head and tailfeathers, who can also transform into different forms of his Cardinal-self. He loves racing, art, and having a good time with friends and family!! He is voice acted by Dee Jay Randle.

  • Ace Pilot: He's good in his Dirt Cars and other sim racing vehicles. Many people he knows outside of his Sim Racing life, can't even complete a lap when he lets them drive.
  • Anti-Hero: He is arrogant, often refuses others' help or disagrees with it, and has a quick temper.
  • Art Evolution: If you are a Dirt Oval race fan, his physique basically went from Street Stock to Late Model, as in boxy to sleek. Compare 2011-13-era pictures of him to today.
  • Berserk Button: He loves his own rFactor Dirt Late Models, even if no one else does. He will go out of his way to make sure those cars have the features and handling that he wants and doesn't mind if his popularity takes a dive over them.
  • Bishōnen: That physique.
  • Celibate Hero: He gave up on love after too many girlfriends got frustrated because he wasn't calling them, and said that he "loves his clay more than he loves (them)."
  • Character Development: Daveybird was always known as the angry, lippy, arrogant Sim Race modder who could never back it up. But in recent years, he's trading quantity for quality, and being quiet about more things. He provide a helping hand to drivers and modders who need it and he knows the answer, and his betas now look better than his finished products from the early 2010s.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Daveybird is quick to point out flaws in everyone and everything, and can be quite satirical.
  • Deuteragonist: While normally RSR's main character, in the Randle County adventures that he participates in, he is the second most important character next to Slimyscaly.
  • Expy: Of Falco Lombardi. Arrogant and loudmouthed? Check. Skilled at his talents? Check. Deep down has a heart of gold? Check. Falco is part of why Daveybird exists in the first place!!
  • False Reassurance: In a recent NASCAR Heat PC track video on Youtube, he made its icon have a screenshot of a new car on a new track he's working on, with "2019 Track Previews!!" and the current NASCAR Heat logo without a number by it. He claims it's to modernize and streamline his video and promo appearance, because it's the overall series' current logo, but because of the timing, it's probably because he set it up to look like he had a rare leak or news regarding a NASCAR Heat 4 Xtreme Dirt Tour expansion or overhaul.
  • Fake Defector: For his 2020 April Fools joke, he teased a merger with iRacing, as a part of their Dirt Racing hype. But actually, he tried driving in it, and was bored quickly, better suited for just competition than a creative automotive experience.
  • Feather Fingers: He obviously doesn't have them regularly, because his body is too human, but in his Cardinal form, when made out of clay, drawn, or in a custom 3D model, he has these. He said he is going to look into widening DAZ Genesis' fingers to make his regular fingers in that form look like that.
  • Glass Cannon: In most games he's put in, like Mugen, he's mildly strong, but also a bit low on defense.
  • I Work Alone: A lot of Dee Jay/Daveybird's mods/productions/etc are done by himself, though he borrows assets. He says it's because he doesn't want to have fun making what other people want, and wants to take as much as he can in his direction. He's a bit of a loner, because he wants to shape whatever he can and just flee any conflict.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even though Daveybird can be quite irritable and always wants things his way, he does care about his family and the people he values most, even being respectful towards some of his fellow sim race modders.
  • The Lancer: When helping out Slimyscaly, he isn't afraid to be at odds with him or anyone else.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": A variant of his creator's name, and his species. Go figure.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's a bit on the muscular side, and usually wears revealing clothes. Also subverted, because Randle said that he doesn't make his character style for others, just mainly what he thinks looks good.
  • Noble Bird of Prey: He's a caralcon, which is a Cardinal/Falcon mix.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Daveybird used to be arrogant and snappy with how other people reacted to his works. Now, he's more quiet, modest, and discreet about them, and gives more people a helping hand.
  • Tsundere: He's usually pretty nice to people, until they disagree with him about his interests...
  • Underwear of Power: He flip flops between pants, shorts, and these, sometimes being a bunching up of his short shorts.
RSR's Leading Lizardman

Slimyscaly is a young, wealthy Lizardman who races Dirt Super Late Models, with money that he made himself as a middle school kid in the mid-2000s starting Lizard Lair, a multipurpose skyscraper for entertainment and shopping, which started with him selling his paper car ideas to some wealthy buisnessmen. He is now a Dirt Late Model superstar in the fictional country of Randleton. He is voice acted by Dee Jay Randle.

  • Age Lift: In 2004-09, Slimyscaly was originally going to be in his early 20s back then. But around 2010, it was retconned so that he can have the same age as his creator.
    • That means he was a Dirt Late Model superstar since age 13!!
  • Art Evolution: From his beginnings as Anonymouslizardman in 2004 to the current form of Slimyscaly of today, he's had some radical changes.
  • Anthropomorphic Shift: Slimyscaly's face not only changed a bunch since 2004, but his level of reptilian-ness as well. He has switched between claws and nails, frequency of wearing his tail, slit eyes and human-style eyes, visible scales or ambiguously smooth skin. His girlfriend, Lizzie, is always more consistent about it, usually lacking a tail, having smooth skin (though scaly tail when equipped), and always having nails, and always a bit more human than Slimyscaly.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He grew up watching his dad race, his dad had to retire due to a crash, and ever since 2003, has BEEN a top Dirt Late Model driver, self-made!!
  • Fiction 500: Slimyscaly owns Lizard Lair, a skyscraper with a hotel, arcade, mall, gas station, art store, his and Lizzie's rooms at the top, a gaming center, and now Randle County Speedway, but is humble enough to prefer going elsewhere for his needs.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Averted, though in the beginning, he was supposed to be a headcanon ally to Bowser, to whom he is casual friends with now, along with most of the Mario and Star Fox characters.
  • Shout-Out: His design bears resemblance to Aeon Calcos, Bowser, and Spyro.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He started out this way, then quickly turned obviously cute. In late 2016, he changed his appearance, going from a soft, cute face, plain grey T-Shirt, and blue shorts, to a still cute, but more attitudinal face and personality, a la Spyro; sharper teeth, more visible scales, increased speech, and sharper teeth.
  • Underwear of Power: His blue legwear is usually either this or shorts.
