Like Texas itself, The Star's personality is BIG. Everything about him oozes with confidence. He's the horse everybody came to see and he relishes the opportunity to prove his greatness. You could say there is another side to him but there just isn't. His confidence is so severe that it could almost be considered a superpower all by itself. When engaging his enemies, the Star lets them know who is boss immediately with his catch phrase "There's a new Sheriff in town."
The Star is almost totally made up of Hydrogen and Helium gasses and like an actual star, he generates an incredible amount of energy through nuclear fusion. He can harness this energy in a variety of ways but his main offensive weapon is something he refers to as a solar flare.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
