From game manual (Road Rash)
Slater was a skate rat, but got bored of doing damage at only 20 miles per hour. Slater bought a bike. Now Slater can do damage at 140 miles per hour. Watch this unpredictable dude.
From game manual (Road Rash II)
A wild man from head to toe, this kid set a world skateboard speed record wearing nothing but a tense grin. His moment of truth came early one morning when he skated alongside a biker who had just tried to run him off the road. He jerked him off the seat, hopped on and sped into the sunset. Good-bye skateboard, hello wheelie heaven. Slater's way radical. Hiss wealth of local knowledge and sarcastic tongue make him one of the most sought-after contacts on the tour.
