The Predator

(Click image to enlarge)

"The Predator" ("The Pred") is a fan of all music seeing as Nashville is Music City. A skilled musician, he is comfortable with almost any instrument but the guitar is his favorite and he loves sitting in the rafters of the Grand Ole Opry. The Pred is an outdoorsman, like many of the Guardians, and his sense of smell makes him an excellent tracker.

As a result of Tennessee being nicknamed the Volunteer State, the Pred is the most duty driven of the Guardians. No matter the danger the Pred is the first guy to join the mission. His size might say otherwise, but he sees himself as the consummate underdog and as such he makes it his mission to outwork his opponents. This mentality makes him unbeatable in a fight, and the other Guardians use him as their own personal measuring stick in regards to personal fortitude. In the face of insurmountable odds, many a Guardian has uttered the phrase "What would Pred do?"



I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
