They say you can’t get anywhere in Los Angeles without a car. But what do you do if you’re too young to get a license and you only have a short window of time to retrieve the last fallen star and save your sister’s life? For Riley and Emmett, that’s where Boris comes in. Just remember, this scooter is not for sale.
Not Quite a Dragon . . .
Upon first impression, it would seem that Boris is no more than a teeny tiny scooter you might think was meant for a six-year-old. What can we say? Not every hero can be gifted a cool ride right off the bat. And most twelve-year-olds wouldn’t be caught dead riding a little-kid scooter, much less with their best friend on their back. But desperate times call for desperate measures. At least Boris doesn’t come with training wheels.
Not Quite a Scooter, Either
Instead, it comes with scales and a tail. Boris is what’s known among the gifted clans as a “dragon-on-wheels.” Miru clan members use them to practice moving at superspeed before their own powers kick in. So if you’re in LA and you think you see a bunch of kids flying through the air and crashing into one another, that explains it. Either that or you might want to seek professional help.
Riding in Style
Much like any other dragon scooter, Boris is covered in shiny blue scales and has two ears sticking out of his handlebars. He even has a little tail in the back that wags when he’s happy. It may look like he’s just for kids, but you can’t help but want to take him out for a spin. Now if only there were some way he could breathe fire. . . .
Barf Bags Not Included
The one major downside to Boris (other than his size) is that he takes a little getting used to. Riding a dragon on wheels for the first time, especially if you’re unaccustomed to the superspeed of the Miru clan, can be a somewhat unpleasant experience. For the uninitiated, all we can say is hang on tight, close your eyes, and please, for the love of Mago, don’t ride on a full stomach.
Riley and Emmett will have to learn that the hard way.
