I actually just started watching the 2011 series. I was surprised at the entertainment value. Think it's fair to say they've taken a leaf from the Avatar (airbender, not james cameron) book, but that's a good thing. I actually laughed out loud genuinely, as opposed to the old Thundercats where you'd be laughing at the hackneyed script. Well, not when it first came out and I was a kid. I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY HEART back then.
Anyway I noticed that there are actually public arena games! I must've subconsciously known that when I did my character sheet. Now I hope they're not just limited to "running up massive tree and ringing massive bell", then Rus's profile will be canonically correct.
