Age: 15-19 (depending on series)
Dessert: Cherries Flambe (Spicy, hot,

Character: Hot-headed and emotional,
he's the one with clinical depression and anger issues. He's the loner, and

the foot? God, I crack myself up... Action sequence in a trenchcoat. (Jim
Deflowered: Leo deflowers Raph. Literally...
Yeah, I know I've got a sick mind, but really, this one just presented itself...
Waterfall: Raph (nekkid) sort of striding
out of a waterfall, much to his brothers' delight. (He was de-mutated earlier,
and they weren't too happy about it.)
Twirling: Spinning his sai. This pic is from
a set of trading cards I found at a pharmacy. Cool, huh?
