Makara-Son of the Monkey King.
For one of my final projects I designed this little guy. He is loosely drawn from Hindu Mythology. I imagined him as the spitfire little son of the monkey god Hanuman, existing in a sci-fi version of the epic Ramayana. Perhaps he accompanies Rama and Hanuman on their adventures, or maybe attempts to help but ultimately causes more problems for them. He is cute and feisty, an agile fighter, and a little annoying.
His weapon is a sun mace that doubles as a speeder. It's a little to heavy for him to lug around on his own, so the rocket helps him swing it.
