Skull is super duper late, but with good reason, I swear! Let's not waste too much and get right into it. This month we have XophPsycho, a user since 2016, and, if I'm not mistaken, a newcomer to Featured User!
Let's see what questions we ask him this time around!

A new feature has been added; news; this allows users to read up on situations in a compact and clean manner. When you add a new news message, add one after the comment so that they are organized by date.
Mantis is busy, so I've volunteered to take over for him this month. Speaking of this month, our 39th Featured Article is Smash the Echidna's dear old daddy, the late David the Echidna! Once a legend in the Blitz Pit, this handsome fellow unfortunately met his end at the age of 37 under mysterious circumstances. Will we find out details about those circumstances?
Read and find out!
# 1.) How did you go about designing his appearance?
A) Both David and Sarah were odd cases in that I didn't really have much of an idea to go by. Being characters that were dead upon creation, it didn't occur to me that coming up with a design for them would even be necessary until several years later. It wasn't until roughly a year or so after I joined SFW when I came up with a basic imagery of what he looked like and asked a certain artist to create a design for me based off of it.
All I had down was dark blue fur, short hair, somewhat pale skin, and I think I might have come up with the open jacket part because I remember mentioning something about showing his torso. The results were kind of jarring to me, if only because it was strange seeing a fully completed design for him when previously all I had were a few vague words. But I was satisfied. And about three people in the DA comments thought he was hot. That 'handsome male' meme runs in the family.
# 2.) What would David say/do to inspire someone?
A) This is an interesting question, but I think it really depends on the context. He's not super talkative, and I can't see him being too gentle with words either, but I think he's the type of person who'd be better at inspiring people through actions rather than words. To someone struggling with something, he'd probably show them how it's done and say something along the lines of "If I can do it, you can too."
# 3.) What do you think was David's biggest character flaw (other than being dead)?
A) Biggest Character Flaw? You know what, that's a really good question. Because now that I think about it, I think he has the same character flaw that Smash is revealed to have in Season 2: Trying to shoulder everything by himself. David is a family man at heart, and is more than willing to go the extra mile when it counts; even if it hurts him in the process. There were times when he should have asked for help, but didn't and tried to do things on his own. Granted, he didn't have a whole lot of friends out in Greenflower, and his only family around were his wife and kids. He has a bit of a better excuse than Smash, whose actions really came back to bite him in the butt. But that's a story for another time and another character.
# 4.) What would you say was David's toughest fight?
A) David's toughest fight has got to be the battle where he took on every fighter in the Blitz Pit at once. I never finished writing out that scene thanks to writers block, but it's said to have been not only one of his most memorable matches of his career, but also one of the greatest battles in the history of the Blitz Pit.
Did he win? Of course not. But he made damn sure that everyone knew that David Corliss was not to be trifled with when he gets serious.
His other toughest fight, on the other hand, was his final battle. Did he win? Technically, no. But he didn't go down alone. It was a draw.
# 5.) Do you think the Smash today could beat David in a fight?
A) That's the big question we all saw coming. A legendary battle between father and son, lol. To be perfectly honest, if present day Smash fought with David before his death, Smash would probably win. He'd have an edge with his mastery of High Tension, but that's pretty much the only extra advantage he'd have. I think they'd be on equal footing otherwise, and it'd be difficult to make out a winner.
# 6.) What would David be doing if he were still alive?
A) Still kicking butt in the Blitz Pit. If David were still alive he'd have trained Smash himself. He'd also definitely participate in just about all of Smash's adventures and mysteries, etc. He'd be borderline part of the main cast, in that case.
# 7.) Can you give us any hints into how he died?
A) Died in a car accident. RIP.
Yeah nobody's gonna buy that, right? All I can say is, this was no accident. David discovered something sinister, and set out to do something about it. He didn't return.
Congratulations to our featured article! What will our next featured article be? Let's see!
Notice: Due to reasons, Sanzu will not be the Featured Article winner for August. Instead, we will be resetting the poll (except without Sanzu) and interviewing the winner next month. Sorry 'bout that!
