Bio: They are Vulcanizer and Sigh Ren: A multi-sport athlete as a child who grew tired of traditional sports as an adult, they went through many changes in the next decade, leading up to some of the biggest changes a person can go through. After becoming their true self, they naturally became interested in the rebellious sport of roller derby, particularly the referees who both skate and keep the game fair. The new referee Sigh Ren had been mysterious to everyone but their closest friends, but that was soon to change. After many bouts in the black and white stripes in less than a year, Sigh Ren was growing in skill, and was ready for different challenges. Now that Sigh Ren has also become Vulcanizer and joined the league as a skater, their knowledge of the sport is better than most fresh skaters. Can Vulcanizer live long and prosper on the flat track, rather than just around it? The future is uncertain, but the present moment is clear to those who can see beyond the black and white lines. The logical implications of this journey are fascinating!
