Meet... Prototype! Another Oc from my "Twisted" series:

The plot:
WHAT HAPPENS TO AMUSEMENT PARK RIDES ONCE THEY ARE PUT INTO STORAGE OR DESTROYED? They are magically transported to a place only known as “Amusement Park Between”, a park that co-exist within any other and is only accessible by those who are of its blood. There are no limits and no humans. The only residents are the rides. However, they are much different from our own. Amusement Park Between’s rides are ALIVE, having both the characteristics of man and beast. Amusement Park Between was once merry and joyous, but for the past several years it has spiraled into turmoil. An evil tyrant known as Ironwheel has taken control, casting a dark shadow over Amusement Park Between, and whose evil intentions endanger both their world and our own. The rides only hope is the key to their prophecy; the red will defeat the black. That particular key is the only ride that was created differently. The red roller coaster, Railrunner. AND THIS IS HIS STORY.

Yes, these rides are BIO MECHANICAL, meaning they are metal on the outside, flesh on the inside.

This is actually my third redesign of Prototype ( the others were really dated) Here's a backstory:

At first glance, Prototype would appear just like the average Twisted roller coaster - until he turns around that is. One side of his body is perfectly normal but the other is composed of gears and thousands of moving parts, all visible to the eye. Indeed, Prototype was not always that way, which means you're in for a tragic tale. Prototype once lived by a different name, Flametrain, and had perfectly normal life in Hudong, running his own delivery business, and in love with his soon to be wife. When Ironwheel seized Amusement Park Between, Prototype was captured by the evil king and was forced to work as a slave. For many months he was tortured by the king and his top general, Freakshow, sometimes so brutal that he couldn't walk for days after the beating occurred. Starved, wounded, clinging to life, Flametrain wasn't sure how it could be worse, but he soon suffered just that. Ironwheel came up with a plan. He would force his slaves to fight for his armies, force them to kill their own kind. Flametrain refused and he was ordered to be burned and slaughtered by Freakshow. The act rid his of much of his flesh, his eye, arm, several organs, and his vocal cords, plus damaging many tissues . Somehow, Flametrain escaped only to be found more dead than alive by a few stragglers passing through the land. They took him to Timberwolf, the finest doctor in all of Between. As the old doctor saw Flametrain, he was surprised to see him still breathing. The only option in saving him was a new medical procedure, replacing everything with mechanical limbs and organs that were linked directly to his brain. It had never been tried before on any ride, so the risks were high. After days and nights of surgery with no breaks, the work was finished and the coaster was in stable condition. After a month in a coma, he awoke for the first time, unable to remember his name. Timberwolf called him Prototype as a replacement. At first, he was happy that he was alive, but soon saw the huge price that he had to pay to even be alive. Prototype lost many of his capabilities, all of his powers, his ability to some of the other stuff that was a roller coaster's pastime, even the ability to speak. All on top of all that a device that would never be missed. After he fully healed, Prototype set off alone to rebuild his life, but his wish to have his old life back would not be granted. He was constantly stared at, refused by many employers because of his looks and disabilities, and when Prototype tried to patch things up with his love - she rejected him. Prototype was a freak, alone in the world with nowhere to turn until there was a spark of hope. He met a group of rare Halfcoasters (roller coasters that come to Amusement Park Between as a mix of another animal or machine. The trait comes from being themed to be something that looks anything remotely near a roller coaster in the real world) Prototype learns that the Halfcoasters share some of the same disabilities. They lack all of the powers that a coaster has, even their size for they are much smaller. They welcomed the young coaster who gladly accepted to join them. Years go by, and Prototype is still shunned by many of Amusement Park Between's residents and is truly at home with the nomadic Halfcoasters. One day, unexpectedly, the Halfcoasters stumble on Railrunner and his traveling allies. Prototype is spooked by the king's presence, fearful that he will be judged by even the most powerful being (or rather individual) in all of Amusement Park Between. However, to his surprise, Railrunner finds him to be a great friend and that they have a lot in common with each other, including tragic stories. Soon after, Prototype and the Halfcoasters embark on the king's journey to defeat Darkrail. In the meantime, Prototype and Railrunner spend plenty of time sharing stories and performing many tasks. In the end, Prototype does get his wish, just in the way he never expected.

Prototype really does have a heart of gold. He thinks of others before himself. The mute roller coaster is often misunderstood when he's being giving. Though he can't speak - he oddly doesn't know sign language but uses various gestures instead. When he's not with the Halfcoasters or practicing his battle skills (which are amazing) Prototype likes to be one with nature. If the nomadic Halfcoasters ever settle down, he wants to make a zen like greenhouse with beautiful plants and loads butterflies. XD

lol never judge a book by its cover :D

sorry for long description.

Wow! Awesome!
BladedMako Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
What's he holding there, a Naginata? [link] It certainly looks like one. And why not? He's got that whole Samuri vibe going. And his clothing too looks Japanese.

Random question: Does he have any special enhancements? Like can that eye of his see in thermal or something? Because that would be badass.

At first, I thought your living coaster idea was rather strange, but it's actually very interesting! This is a neat design... I might have to try to get my paws on your book and read it sometime!
