Sterling LaVaughn (known as Arbin Gordon in Japanese versions of games) was once the greatest driver in the F-MAX Grand Prix, a competition that predates the coming of F-Zero by some 200 years. For a long time Sterling was able to win race after race without ever suffering a single injury, despite how bloody the F-Max was in that time. Realizing he could not avoid death forever, he used a combination of science and black magic to arrange his own immortality. His plan worked and during one horrendous accident, the Grand Finale of the F-Max Grand Prix, he and several others were burned alive.

What happened next is unknown, but two hundred years later he emerged as a figure composed of only his original skeleton, now known as The Skull. He joined the F-Zero Grand Prix starting in F-Zero X to compete yet again, as nothing else in life but racing held any meaning to him anymore. He's become an even better pilot than before, as he now no longer fears death and can make split second decisions better than ever before.

That's no mask he's wearing - this racer's over 200 years old! At least, he would be if he wasn't dead. His records in F-Zero's predecessor, the F-MAX Grand Prix, are the stuff of legend, and thanks to a bit of science and black magic, he's back for more. Death hasn't slowed him down at all - he's still a truly fearsome opponent. Randomly Obtained.
