Throughout history, species have followed a course of evolution. Life forms have started from the primordial ooze, and risen to become investment bankers (some would argue that this was an evolutionary process). And throughout history, scholars have studied this progression. One wonders how scholars several centuries hence will chronicle the evolution of VeloMan.
VeloMan is descended from the species Homo Sapiens, but that is where the resemblance ends.
Veloman's head is usually encased in a protective carapace. Occasionally there are members of the species seen without this, but evolution being what it is, their survival is in doubt.
Veloman is a biped, though his usual stance is hunkered down over the handlebars, so can't really be called a homo erectus. His feet are not unlike cloven hooves, containing clips to rigidly attach to pedals.
He is not unlike a marsupial, except he has multiple pouches in the back, not for carrying young, but food to consume. Food consists of hard bars containing nuts and berries. Unlike other species, he does not forage for nuts and berries himself but obtains them from others. He also consumes a semisolid mass of sugary material, known as "goo." These are apparently sufficient to sustain life over long migrations. There is a hump-backed variety so named for a dorsal pouch for carrying water.
His mating rituals are difficult to understand. He sports beautiful multicolored plumage, but seems to avoid females, preferring to associate with other alpha males.
He is known to travel in herds, sometimes 30 or more specimens. The weaker of the group, unable to keep up with the herd, are left for dead.
Just as fish have evolved a set of gills and sleek profile to cut through the water, Veloman has adapted to present an aerodynamic profile while running with the herd. He has adopted a position not unlike the praying mantis with arms close together to allow him to reduce wind resistance.
All in all, Veloman is a highly evolved species and should replace inferior ones. Assuming of course velo man does not become extinct and be replaced by Roller Man.
