" YOU KNOW ME; I SEE AN OPENING, I GOTTA PLAY BALL. "

Showmanship made (panda) flesh, a poet in the medium of randomness, 'Baller' crashes the HexaDome like he crashes a party: unavoidably and unpredictably. He rolls like a powerful opening break, only this ball is calling all the shots. 8-Ball is the pain in any team manager's ass and the life of every party worthy of that name.[1]


8-BALL | THE CHARMING BLACK SHEEP

He’s the eighth heir to a caste of Aristeia! champions, a beloved media superstar and an outrageous sex-symbol, but he’s always fallen just a little short of snatching the coveted title of Bahadur.

8-Ball hails from Bakunin, the weirdest of the three motherships of the Nomad Nation. If the Bakunin society has one salient trait, it’s a tolerance for all things different and eccentric. A specific borough inside Bakunin, called VaudeVille, is the Human Sphere’s most fertile soil for artistic endeavor, sordid indulgence and extravagant lavishness. One discipline lies at the intersection of all three: body modification. For the right money, you can get panther eyes, live wire hair… or panda fur.

No dark arts are responsible for 8-Ball’s prodigious size and strength; he was always going to be buff and deceptively agile for his massive size. Cheeky, impudent and carefree, at least he has the skills to back up all his bravado. As for his family, from a very early age they enabled his addiction to extreme sports in lieu of training for his rightful destiny: the crown of Aristeia! Bahadur.

Will this be the season 8-Ball finally realizes his legacy?


Genetically designed to become the ultimate aristo, 8-Ball is the eighth iteration of the ‘Ball’ saga of Aristeia! superstars. When designing his genetic cocktail in Praxis, they added the strength of a bear, the nimbleness of a monkey, the slyness of a fox… and the adorable looks of a panda. You know, for the kids. Increasing the merchandising possibilities of an aristo is always a good thing in Vissiorama’s book.

What they certainly didn’t expect was that combination to deliver the sassy, sexy, party animal he is. According to his metrics and performance tests, he should have achieved the Bahadur status right from the beginning of his career, yet he seems quite more interested in having fun with his teammates – and even his opponents – than in getting to the top of the ranking. And he enjoys immensely driving his managers to despair whenever he shows up two hours late to his training sessions, surrounded by a big entourage of groupies, fans, and lovers.[2]
