Pelon, leader of Team Pelon and member of the backup team, is a Time Sweeper that contributed to the Time Factory's efforts during the Big Crystal incident in Blinx 2: Masters of Time and Space.
Pelon has peach-orange fur and yellow eyes. In both games, he is seen wearing red lens goggles, orange pants and a yellow jacket that was slashed during the Tom Tom Invasion.
He displays a high degree of confidence, offering himself and his team for the battle at World A000, though the Time Sweeper protagonist's team was chosen instead.
His involvement in the Big Crystal incident was very limited, as he initially left for the Dark Valley World to gather information but seemingly found nothing, potentially due to continued attacks by time monsters that led to him expressing concern in his initial transmission. He later travelled to the Sky World, where he encountered a giant time monster resembling Benito (in fact a monster that absorbed a Big Crystal fragment and mimicked a dream of Benito's, as he had touched the Big Crystal) at the Flying Castle, leading to a request for backup supplied by the TS protagonist, who defeated the monster and retrieved the fragment.
Though he has a notably effeminate appearance and voice, it has been confirmed by Naoto Ohshima (via the art director) that Pelon is indeed male.
Behind the Name
Microsoft and Artoon paired up to create a game for XBOX that would appeal to the Japanese market. The project was codenamed Pelon during development, which later changed to Blinx. Pelon became the name of the time sweeper we know today.
Pelon (Peron) is written as ペロン in katakana.
