Sid (シド, Shido) is a character in the Aozora's Adventure series.
Sid is a slim and lean punk from New York City that moved down to a sunny urban town in Florida to escape his parents, who loathed his preferred “heavy-metal” life style which included his dress code, smoking habit, and his obsession with chains, piercings, and punk-rock music. He rarely returns to his city of birth, always steering away from his parents whenever doing so.
Sid is very chilled, lax, and ignorant, living by himself in a small rooftop apartment and taking orders from no one except his group of close friends, all sharing a similar lifestyles to himself. They spend time together on rooftops and out of the way of the general public, places where Sid and his circle of fellow punks can do as they wish with no interruptions. Sid’s friends see him as the leader- with his trademark mohawk and overdose of piercings on his face standing out. Because of all the piercings, Sid takes extra care to keep his hygiene in tip-top shape, even to the point of refusing to join his gang in skateboarding sessions around the city to avoid damaging the piercings if he falls. Sid enjoys taunting anyone he dislikes with “offensive hand gestures” and keeping them at bay with his signature weapon, a home-built handheld sub-zero launcher that blasts exploding balls of ice.
Sid is considering starting a carrier as a professional tattoo artist as it would be one of the few occupations he could indulge himself into without being ridiculed for his looks and personality. Sid is also an avid fan of the yearly Florida-based heavy metal rock band event “Deadbeats: Battle of the Bands”, showcasing several of Sid’s favorite bands on stage. Sid’s jacket came from the first Deadbeats he ever attended, and he treasures this piece of memorabilia with every ounce of his life.
Sid is a sarcastic and smug punk who prefers to simply chill back with his buddies, listen to music, smoke, and overall have a good time. Even then, he's still a decent person who would never back off from his friends, despite what his appearance may suggest otherwise. If he sees an argument or fight break out, he's usually the first to interfere and try to put an end to it.
Sid's relative laxness and "chill" personality makes him much less prone to anger and frustration. When stressed however, Sid increases the tone and frequency of his swears and gestures.
Powers and Abilities
Sid has above-average agility thanks to his flexible and athletic figure, allowing him to move with reasonable speed and perform impressive parkour movements. His main weapon is the Cicle Launcher, a bulky, primarily black weapon constructed from pipes with additional aesthetics added by Sid himself. The Cicle Launcher is handled with two hands and blasts spiky chunks of ice that stick onto surfaces- before exploding and sending small ice shards flying all over in different directions.
Sid can equip himself with tattoo or piercing needles, which he uses as more accurate, faster projectiles or direct melee attacks if required.
- The aesthetics of Sid's Cicle Launcher were loosely based on the Freeze Bomb from Sunset Overdrive. Sid himself was also created as an analogue to the game's male protagonist as viewed on the game’s cover art.
