    Might have to give this one a go...

    Incase others are wondering (as I was), a Toreador is the same as a Matador.

    From Wikipeda:
    The word toreador is used in English to designate the main performer of Spanish-style bullfighting, who taunts and kills the bull. This word, which roughly translates as "bull handler", is not used in Spain or Latin America, where that role is called matador ("killer") or torero.

    According to Sherlock's dictionary:

    toreador n : someone who fights bulls [syn: bullfighter]

    According to WhiteWolf:

    Heavily makeuped, black garbed pretentious teenager whom believes oneself to be a vampire.

    Oh this one's gonna be cute.

    I believe the official difference between the Toreador and Matador (which stem from the root words "taurus" and "matar" respectively) is that the Toreador are bull fighters, whereas the Matador is a specialized Toreador who actually -kills- the bulls (with a sword).

    Hope that helps.

    (Oh, are we allowed to use the WoW definition of Toreador or are we strictly staying to RL terminology??)

    GriNGoLoCo:Wikipedia is an online dictionary where anybody from around the world can edit an entry. Thus there is no guarantee that someting is correct but since there are literally millions of people who use it, people will correct a mistake quickly. So BlueMech meant you should go to Wikipedia and improve the entry buy correcting the mistake. That's all.

    You look very serious in that portrait, how about a smile

    Just kidding, but smiling improves peoples moods and it is oh so easy to smile!

    I think you've got the deadline wrong. Also, can it be a robotic bull?

    Noooooo, BeamUs, you got my idea!!! Ha, yes, I'm sure you can make it a robotic bull, that's what I had in mind. I also was thinking of making the fighter a robot, but I'm not sure yet. Simply don't make him Spanish, that's all that is required.

    Well remember that the bull is not necessary- the focus should be on the bullfighter. I was thinking that if you want to succeed in doing that only one leg of the bull should be showing.

    I'm not doing a robotic one but it's still going to be far from ordinary.

    By the way, what's the deal with the deadline?

    FINAL

    Pawel Kowalowski - is Polish Toreador who started his career in Barcelona in 2081, where he bacame modern toreador. He act in famous tauromachy show which was very popular all the world over. It was very moder and expensive fun, because Spanish government forbid killing bulls, then the organizators use modern technology. Show became like hi-tech ballet with robotic bulls in beautiful future stadium. At that time was Pawel young and act only as emergency man, which helped to real "star" , to Spanish toreador Francisco Lopez. Pawel was very talented toreador and acrobat, then it wasn´t surprise when he bacame star of tauromachy show after Francisco Lopez death (he was murdered). Many people said that Pawel was born to bacame Bull-fightning star. His shows were awesome and very dynamic with many acrobatics elements.

    Here is Pawel in his special acrobatic suit, which include jumping boots for better acrobatic tricks. Also he has special glove with red light temptation for eletronic bulls (it represent old traditional red flag), which control calculator at his leg and with this has contact with bull. Last important thing is traditioal sword for killing bulls.

    CHOW #31 Brock Samson Jr.

    CHOW #31 - Non Spanish Toreador

    Heres what I have so far...Ill post the story later this week. After reading all these comments I wish i did a robot...

    The Year is 2026 and after a long brutal war the forces of P.E.T.A have finally been destroyed. The world is again free to to use and abuse animals as they please without fear of prosecution or discrimination. Thus the legacy of the Toreador becomes a world sports phenomenon and soon after an Olympic event. Representing the Americans... Brock Samson Jr. geared with his Nike Cowboy Boots. Assless Chaps, and Bowie Knife "cause swords are for sissies".

    Landauart, that is well done. But it also shows the nastiness of this idiotic "sport"/ritual. Causing the poor bull to suffer. Your image, using the US flag to blind the bull and then getting blood all over it... has an interesting connotaion... kind of like the propaganda that is being spewed in the name of freedom and then the blood of innocents that is spilled... Whoa, way to get heavy with the subject matter.

    masai toreador
    -he worked as a guide for foriegn big game hunters traveling in africa. he maintains traditional masai garb, adorned with trophies of previous hunts. he mainly kills wildabeests, watusi, and other large bulls of africa. the combination of his brightly colored attire and his game of choice earned him the nickname, the toreador, by spanish hunters he was guiding through the bush. he was later brought to spain to fight bulls professionally.

    Landauart- Don't worry you haven't done what everyone else was planning on. You don't want to be like everyone else do you? Good entry.

    flex- I really like how this is coming along. His skull shoulder pad is a really nice touch and the weapon looks interesting. I assume you're going to add very vibrant colors to his clothes?

    neat - we have a great start.
    toreadors have a very ritualistic way, dress code and such - that's what made them appealing for me. they are not just bull fighters.. they have a darling in the audience, they act with the crowd, etc...

    My entry:

    CHOW #31 - Non Spanish Toreador



    Xenodian Bullfighter

    In one of our scout missions to some of the garden planets we made some time ago ( around lunch yesterday), we inspected the third garden from one of those small solar system appointed to us. We found that those pseudo-apes with termite syndrome were doing fine, creating all kind of strange and sometimes idiotic rituals.

    The ones we liked were of cource the ones who had to do with public entertainment, such as the one with the giant felines and goofy wheely things. So, sometime before lunch we checked again someplace else, they did some little porgress, but putting people in funny outfits inside a ring was still the favorite ritual, specialy if there was blood involved ( this guys love blood). But this time it was with bulls...and the outfits were even funnier.

    Anyways, we thought it was a brilliant idea and we stole it. It was hard enough to find people of our own to put themselves in danger while wearing something ththat would take all their dignity, I mean rodeo clowns are at least trying to be funny, and they have barrels and stuff. So we desided to take people from a planet we use to breed stupid muscle soldiers with iron skin......But the idea didn´t worked out with normal bulls from that third planet, so we looked in the archives for even bigger bull-like creatures and we were lucky to find this really massive and brutal bulls that not only ram you, they also stomp you with their massive head.

    The idea was a success of cource, the ratings were up in that show and we retired from our crappy abducting job.

    CHOW #31 - Non Spanish Toreador

    The last hope of humankind - Toreadors

    By 2145 almost all pet animals are extinct because of various viruses and radiation in the air. Only because of some random genetic mutation bulls and cows became suitable pet animals - and after being intergrated into pet animals - they evolved in few years to become humanoidish, intteligent and aggressive againts humans.

    The bull revolution took the war weakened humankind by surprise and soon overcame all major resistances. Now they control the cities and enslave and breed humans as their food.

    One of the last guerilla organisations is the Toreadors, the former elite EU platoon, which now fights with it's last gas bombs and swords to free as many human slaves as possible, and get them into underground shelters.

    They fight only with their swords, striking when they are least expected like assassins. They kill without mercy to ensure that every human has beef for dinner.
