Thrasher was spoiled rotten as a child by his nice middle class parents in their nice middle class neighborhood. He was never disciplined, since his parents believed this would "stifle energies he might need later in life." Thrasher was never denied anything he asked for, even though everything he asked for wound up causing some type of unexplainable destruction or minor disaster. He got everything he wanted...but that wasn't enough! At a tender young age, this "wild child" wandered into the swamps where he could do what he pleased. It was in the swamps where he met up with Zartan and the Dreadnoks and was welcomed into the fold...
"Even by Dreadnok standards, this guy is pretty low. He derives a slight sensation, which almost registers as pleasure on his primitive central nervous system, from inflicting misery onto others."

DREADNOK THRASHER does the most damage behind the steering column of anything with three wheels and up. His unique vehicle creations continue to impress his fellow Dreadnoks, although its' his bragging and boasting that cause the gang to ignore him the rest of the time.
"Every vehicle needs a custom-fit jet engine and a big machine gun."

DREADNOK THRASHER was spoiled rotten as a child by his nice middle class parents int heir nice middle class neighborhood. He was never disciplined, since his parents believed that this would "stifle energies he might need later in life." DREADNOK THRASHER was never denied anything he asked for, even though everything he asked for wound up causing destruction or minor disaster. He got everything he wanted, but that was never enough to satisfy him. He was in his teens when he stole a motorcycle and hit the road to corruption. Eventually, he ended up in the swamps with ZARTAN, who welcomed him into the fold and channeled his newest member's destructive tendencies into profitable acts of sabotage and chaos.
"What's wrong with slashing people's tires? I'm doing them a favor. Just think how boring their lives would be if I didn't add a little excitement."
