OriginEdit

Dan Patch was the predominant standardbred horse of early 1900s. Only two heats were ever lost in his career. He galloped past other jockeys by such a wide margin, competition refused to enter in races with him out of shame. Instead, Dan competed in timed trials – and set a three decade long pace record of 1:55. Even off the racetrack, his glamorous mug rocketed him to celebrity status. Cigars and photos promoted his physical power and tender lovingness towards the crowds, all from the luxury of his own custom railcar. Not bad, considering his original owner saw Dan’s prospects as nothing beyond hauling hay with his mismatched body size.

As champion of the raceway, Dan become a sizeable figure to bet on. Thousands of spectators would gather for a single race, filling the pockets of gamblers galore. For his solo timed runs, organizers wanted to insure only the fastest times. On many record-breaking trots, other horses would line up ahead of Dan to act as a wind shield and reduce drag he would normally encounter. Although the practice was eventually banned, the proto-drafting was commonly used by Dan’s owners to incense the crowds into cheering.

EffectsEdit

Allows the wielder to perform slightly beyond peak achievement in whatever they desire – from top sprint speed to time needed to cook minute rice (blame Claudia). Only condition, it must have a measurable metric. Being good at recognizing smells won’t change anything, but behaving on par with a bloodhound will.

Felix’s NotesEdit

"Diminishes the amount of air resistance the user encounters during movement. Although useful for quick bursts of motion, it is uncontrollable as Dan’s dependency on the barricade of breakers ahead of him in races. The inertial movement keeps the person going like they’re riding on electrified roller skates, unable to slow without crashing or keep an erect stature. Often times they look like a flamingo imitating a jetfighter imitating a newborn with too heavy a head. Which reminds me. I must post that video of Nikki and Mary online."
