When Road Pig was born, the doctor held him up and said, "This is the ugliest-looking baby I've ever seen!" He was expelled from kindergarten for milk-money extortion and dishonorably discharged from the Cub Scouts. After being kicked out of a low-life, outlaw gang for smelling worse than was acceptable even by their standards, he joined the Dreadnoks as a probationary member. They're having a hard time making up their minds about this one . . .
"Ugly? They banned him from football games because he stopped the clock! His mother had to tie a pork chop around his neck so the dog would play with him! He went to visit the Empire State Building and got strafed! I'll tell you, beauty may be skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone!"

The only Dreadnok to have ever gone through a probationary period, ROAD PIG is extremely obnoxious even by Dreadnok standards. This guy pushes the needle to red on the evil meter. I mean, we're talking low on the food chain and high on the nasty list. No one knows for sure how Road Pig obtained his inner-cooled incendiary burst flamethrower, and .45in. XM1919A10 fully automatic blowback machine gun. Suffice it to say, the guy he "borrowed" them from isn't around to talk about it anymore.
"Gross. You could say that. Road Pig doesn't drink orange soda and eat nutritious and yummy chocolate covered donuts like the other Dreadnoks. He subsists entirely on a diet of barbecue-flavored fried pork rinds, fast food burritos, frozen corn dogs, and stale baseball card bubble gum. Once a year, when he brushes his teeth, he has to use industrial tub cleaner instead of toothpaste."

DREADNOK ROAD PIG was kicked out of every low-life, outlaw biker gang from one coast to the other. He was a vexatious wanderer, until the Dreadnoks took him in as one of their own. He's gross-looking and smells worse than anyone would think is humanly possible, but his brute strength makes him more than useful to the gang.
It doesn't take much to make him mad—just point him in the right direction and he'll stomp everything in sight. DREADNOK ROAD PIG actually believes that smashing things is the solution to all of life's problems. Besides, his cinderblock hammer tends to end all arguments rather quickly... "be it breath mint or candy mint." He has taken the position as ZARANA's bodyguard, and feels that it is his responsibility to watch over her (whether she likes it or not).
"I think, therefore, I smash!"
