"Picaro here. Safety landed at the Time Furnace World!"
Picaro is a Time Sweeper who appeared in Blinx 2: Masters of Time and Space, leader of his respective team and member of the backup team.
Picaro's fur is black on the right side of his face and his left ear is light grey. The rest of his fur is white, including the ventral areas. His tail is white with a patch of black. Picaro wears a purple jacket, black pants, white gloves and boots and yellow lens goggles.
Picaro provides occasional comic relief for the Time Sweeper segments. He is outspoken and enthusiastic, volunteering excitedly to travel to World A000 during the Big Crystal incident. He notably apathetic when Pelon asks for his opinion on the girl appearing in Benito's dream.
Picaro contributed to the Time Factory's efforts during the Big Crystal incident, though his contribution was limited to searching for information. Following the Tom Tom invasion of the Time Factory, Picaro left for the Time Furnace World in search of information, seemingly finding nothing of significance.
Much later, he travelled to the Time Oil Well World in search of a Big Crystal fragment detected there. He then met Furball, who left him behind to hold off Tom Toms by leaving for Planet Two Falls in a jet. Picaro objected to this (possibly in part due to Furball making demands immediately upon seeing him and mispronouncing his name), though he was left regardless. He appears again at the end of the game hugging a Tom Tom Gang member.
Behind the Name
Picaro (or Picaroon) originates from Spanish for a clever rouge or adventurer. The main character in a picaresque work when that character is a man or boy is known as a picaro. Picaresque works relate to a genre of usually satiric prose fiction originating in Spain and depicting in realistic, often humorous detail the adventures of a roguish hero of low social degree living by his or her wits in a corrupt society. Alternatively, it may be Japanese based. In katakana, Picaro is written as ピカロ (ピカ, pika, the sound made by electricity).
- He's the first among the Time Sweepers to figure out that the Time Goddesses may be involved with the monsters with time barriers.
- Picaro complains that the Time Furnace World is "burning hot" in the cut content.
- Picaro's jacket is a shade of purple that cannot be attained in the character customisation. Neither is his fur pattern.
- Picaro usually wields his sweeper right-handed but is capable of leading with his left.
