Ron Cornelius the 8th Evil Ex by TheSteveYurko Ron Cornelius the 8th Evil Ex by TheSteveYurko
Name: Ron Cornelius
Age: 28
Rating: Too cool for school

He gets down, he gets funky, he dresses retro! Ron has always been the life of the party. He boogies down, he does the hustle, and he makes sure to never rock the boat. He's known to be a trend setter, and he swears that disco will become cool again, and when it does you better remember that Ron started it.

Ron has the ability to change the shape of his afro, mainly into weapons to use in combat. A diet of fruits vegetables provides him the vitamins(iron, minerals, etc) to keep his hair strong and deadly. Having grown up in the 80's, he absolutely despised Jheri curls, and insisted on keeping his afro despite the trends of the time. Ron's weaknesses are the creams and moisturizing sprays that soften his hair, make it greasy, and hard to shape. If challanged while having a bad hair day, Ron's long dancer legs come in handy allowing him to kick his way. Ron prefers the advantage of his fro, though.

Big in New York's club scene, Ron meets a lot of ladies, but he took an Interest in Ramona Flowers. The style of her hair changed on a monthly basis and this drew him to her. Ron, thinking of himself as the coolest guy, needed to have the coolest girl at his side. Ramona gave Ron a shot, but realized it was all about Ron, all the time. Ramona was just an accessory to him and being smart enough to see that, dumped him quickly. Ron was shocked. Ron was the one that dumped the girls, not the other way around. Embarassed, he swore revenge on Ramona Flowers and any man that would come into her life. No guy is better than Ron would ever be for Ramona, and he intends to keep in that way.

Shaping his own hair into anything?

That's a win scenario right there.

Nice Work! I was gonna do that hair morphing with my character. But i think it fits your character more! He probably has a Dance fighting style. Reminds me of mystery men.
