Over the course of the story, she has Crash find a crystal, a starter and coins in order to buy her cars and get them running. She also uses this time to openly flirt with him.

Characteristics[]

Physical description[]

Pasadena has a somewhat feminine frame with light peach fur and a very pale muzzle. Her snout is somewhat pointed, resembling a mouse or rat and her nose is pink. Her eyes are green in color; she appears to wear pinkish eyeshadow and faint pink lipstick. Her hair is dirty blond in color and worn in tightly pulled back pigtails that stick out of her pink hat, which has a dark pair of goggles on them. She has a long tail, which she can use as a prehensile.

Pasadena wears a sky blue jacket with dark blue markings and noticeable shoulder pads. Around her neck, she wears a pink scarf/cloth, while her pants match her top. She also has dark gloves and boots, with lighter blue at the toes.

In Nitro-Fueled, Pasadena is now almost as tall as all the members of the Nitro Squad. She has visible fangs (befitting her species), larger eyes, longer and lighter hair, more detailing on her clothes, a longer scarf, and the back of her hat now has a large blue star while her jacket sleeves have bright yellow stars in place of her circles.

Personality[]

Pasadena is a southern/western girl, right down to her habits and speech. She proves fiercely loyal to her employer Von Clutch, vowing to win the gems and theme park for him and setting a rivalry towards the other competitors who risk taking it for themselves, particularly Cortex and his minions. She proves good on her word on the race track, where she is a passionate and aggressive racer.

Despite her competitive streak however, her attitude quickly softens upon speaking to Crash for the first time. It's shown she has a crush on him, openly stating he's 'cute' and flirts with him. Whenever she asks for favors, he does them willingly but when she states she wants to kiss him or makes a similar suggestion, Crash would either look like he'll vomit or get frightened right in front of her meaning he's a little uncomfortable with Pasadena's feelings towards him. However, Crash himself has shown interest in her as he acted like a dog as a sign of him considering her attractive.

Pasadena is resourceful and an expert racer, yet she is shown to be somewhat uneducated however. She has a rather rowdy and goofy demeanor, though proves slightly more lucid than Crash, who dumbfounds even her at times.

Pasadena is also a good friend of Coco and Crunch. She also seems to have a strong relationship with Von Clutch, hinting a father/daughter bond.
