Rai Rivet +2014+ by Robaato Rai Rivet +2014+ by Robaato
Since :iconrat-rage: is going to be a regular thing now, I figured I'd reintroduce the characters (since the last introduction was in 2009!), especially since the style of the series has been fixated for a good while now. And I gained a lot of new followers and watchers since then as well. 

Support Rat Rage Webcomic on Patreon! Updates there every Wednesday evening (and sometimes Friday evenings too)!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Rai is a city rat in Ratopolis, working as a bodyguard-for-hire at his fledgling business "Riveting Refuge" with his best friend and older bro, Jinx.  He accepts majority of the jobs he receive, since the government and law enforcement barely does anything for its citizens. He tries to fight for what is right and tries to be an honest believer of "true justice". Doesn't always work out, though.

Surprisingly, he cannot eat cheese (dishonoring tradition), as it will cause him to fall ill and weak; even the smell of cheese can render him disoriented, even though everyone else around him eats it. His choice of weaponry is a custom gun called the Rimshot, which is capable of shooting all types of organic material (lazers, lightning, bullets, bubblegum, plants… poop… etc.) and he studies various weaknesses of criminals and creates new organic compounds to add to his ammunition.

For choice of wheels, he drives a Furrari Mouz ZXT. He should be more simple, but he can afford it. He loves mice, but doesn't have much luck with them. He also sports a stiff, crooked tail, which is highly unnatural amongst other rats or mice, and even though it is looked upon as a disorder, he utilizes it when fighting (and even some mice dig it).

One day, his daily routine and life makes a complete one-eighty when meeting Nini, and this certain… creature.

Yeah he does, actually! The weather's usually cold in Ratopolis so he often wears the jacket when outside. :)

Thanks! Yeah, I've been toying with the idea of his jacket being a varsity jacket for a while now, and it just stuck! :D

Really looks nice, give a kinda "Teen-Punk" vibe from it, which is great, can't wait to see the rest of the cast, but hopefully you'll keep Jinx's cheese sword, it's just too brilliant to throw away! XD

Looks great, but I do have one question. Do you think if the webcomic manages good enough, there'll be a printed book as well?
