Captain Falcon (Japanese: キャプテン・ファルコン Captain Falcon), full name Douglas Jay Falcon, is the main character of the F-Zero series. He is a mysterious, retired racer and bounty hunter who is one of the best racers on the circuit.
Creation and DevelopmentEdit
Nintendo originally meant Captain Falcon to be the flagship character of the then new Super Nintendo Entertainment System. However, this never panned out, and Captain Falcon was rarely seen in Nintendo media. He is described as an accomplished F-Zero pilot and renowned bounty hunter. In F-Zero X, it is rumored that he is called "Captain" because he was once an officer on the Internova Police Force. By the age of 36, Captain Falcon had built a reputation as one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy, one that has earned him many enemies. This constant danger forces him to live in a sanctuary on a chain of islands off the coast of Port Town, where he spends most of his time. His desire for solitude is such that even after winning a race, he takes his award and quickly dashes home. Each of his home islands contains a different racetrack, allowing him to keep his racing skills at their peak while remaining relatively safe. On the island in which he hosts the largest and most treacherous of these tracks, he resides in an 8000 square foot villa with views of the ocean and a UV-ray cleansed swimming pool.
