As the name may imply, she's a fan of things that have a lot of luster. Back in the original F-Zero Grand Prix (F-Zero), Tinsel became fascinated with racing. Her prized machine, the Silver Comet, had led her in second place during the Knight League while Falcon took the golden trophy. Unfortunately, her victory was cut short as she entered the Queen League; the circuits were more unforgiving, and she almost died when she couldn't make over a gap in White Land. She was hospitalized for so long from her near-death experience that she missed out on the King League, including the incident which took place during the Horrific Accident. Since then, she was thrown into despair and never wanted to race again. Her machine was left abandoned in a garage in Mute City, and she also missed out on the F-Zero X race.

But, she eventually got her hopes up as she heard of another intergalactic tournament, F-Zero GX. She eventually enrolled after she met two young Duelists, Yugi and Joey. Although Mute City and Port Town didn't suit their tastes, they were fascinated with the places and the fact the former's the main capital of all the F-Zero races. So, they decided to tag along as she explored certain parts of the galaxy while running into the undefeated champion, Captain Falcon. During his missions, they've discreetly used some cards to assist him, whether it'd be Slifer in the Lightning power plant, or Red-Eyes trying to dismantle a speed-sensitive bomb. Eventually, they met and the pair enrolled in the Grand Prix together to prevent his nemeses, Black Shadow and Blood Falcon, from winning.

By the time they won, Yami sensed an evil presence, which was Deathborn who slewed the demon and challenged Falcon to a death-defining race. In the Underworld, the champion somehow emerged victorious before the team was about to use their Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon. Then, they were encased in cards while the bounty hunter faced off the creator spirits. After that, they resumed their exploration. And it was about a year since she then met Rick and the Task Force as he was looking for Samurai Goroh. She became a member of the crew and usually had a certain disposition with Jody Summer and Jack Levin. There was a time when she used her Duel Monster cards during a party in Truman's home. She dropped the Duel Disc and avoided a trap set by him as Rick, Lucy, and the Arrows were caged in a basement. She countered him and the Bloody Chain using Kuriboh and Multiply, the Galaxy Police arrived, and Truman avoided arrest. However, she made an enemy for life, threatening him that if he should capture racers once more, it'll be his "head in the smasher." There was a reprieve for a few days, until Rick lamented over his lost past. Her relationship has grown for him since then, and she even saved his life from the Skull's spell after she succeeded using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

MeteorStorm

Duel Monsters in Outer Space, Meteor Storm.

There were also some times when she had to contact the Duelists for emergencies such as when Roger and Draq were participating in a race against Rick as Pico attached speed-sensitive bombs to every F-Zero machine after a promise he made to Alias on winning it, or when she borrowed some of their low-leveled Duel Monsters to hold back the fatal meteor storm after Zoda deactivated the shields. When the Crystal Cup ended, that began her curse on losing every challenge as Rick, Falcon, and Jack, and at one time Lucy, stole her victories. She became very glum after that.
Tinsel's Interview

Tinsel's Interview

By the time the Duelists went up against a 10,000-year old curse, things got complicated for Tinsel. Without saying a word, she just got up and went as she decided to quit dueling. The Task Force was actually surprised and glad that she volunteered to work for them full-time; it was indeed a better fit for her since she had more skill and experience as well as a better sense of belonging. Not to mention she loved hanging out and helping her friends along the way. Despite their relationship lasting for about a month, Yugi, Yami, and Joey still remained friends with her, but their contacts since then became very seldom.

After several months of winning race after race, while never taking in first, she eventually was brainwashed by Dark Million. She recently enrolled in the Hovercraft Hub on Planet Tortiz 3, as a way to improve her skills since she hardly ended up in the top five. Fortunately, the spell eventually wore off and Dr. Stewart made a formula to reverse the effects. She had an accident at Mist Flow, then she recovered as Rick was watching over her. Through time, she slowly had a deeper attachment to the pilot as she learned of his dark past and the loss of Misaki Haruka. She promised to herself she'll always be there for him, as he has always been supportive.

During the mid-spring, she returned to headquarters only to find Rick and his team missing. She knew Dark Million was behind all this and so she'd fit the pieces together and encounter new friends along the way. So far, she was successful on reuniting with Rick, Jack, Lucy and EAD; however, she was unable to save Dr. Clash after he was involved in a tragic death. Still, she manages to push forward and she would never give up as long as her friends are by her side. Since then, she moved onto the finals and learned the Booster Fire, as well as a special technique that enabled her machine to make longer leaps as she enters a Jump Plate, and land more lightly. She witnessed a terrifying incident during the Championship race as Black Shadow took Rick back to Dark Star. Fortunately, she was reunited with him as she, Falcon, and his friends helped him regain his senses and escape while he was saving Rodney. But things took a turn for the worst as she unexpectedly encountered Jody where her team was going to meet. As soon as she made an ultimatum to kill Super Arrow with a special bullet she made, in exchange for the Duelists' lives, Tinsel went berserk and declared quitting the Task Force. Soon after, she was abducted by Black Shadow, and he made a deal with Rick to surrender the remaining Light Reactor Mights. Now, this begins a perilous journey to his own turf with Dr. Stewart as the only infected associate left.

By an act of faith, Rick was able to save Tinsel while she was in a deadly scrimmage with Miss Killer. After some attempts trying to intimidate and trick him, he made a fateful decision to save his true love thanks to Haruka's kindred spirit. She later reunited with her friends, and Rodney decided to tag along as the trio entered the Dark Reactor Core. It was there where Dr. Stewart recited the legend of the savior. Rick Wheeler was the chosen one, as the Wuji for the Yin and Yang that was Black Shadow and Captain Falcon respectively. After the Death Anchor destroyed the restricted lab creating the Blood Falcons, Rick made a declaration to defeat Deathborn for good, leaving his beloved with the memos he kept.

It was only a matter of time before she saw Rick emerge victorious after defeating Deathborn and destroying the Dark Reactor; however, the loss of Captain Falcon was quite devastating. Nonetheless, Yami, Haruka, and even Jody and Dr. Stewart congratulated her on her accomplishments by reuniting the Task Force and saving the universe. After a week of grievance, she resigned gracefully and went on her last mission, to take care of Rick, who's become the official savior and Falcon's replacement. She was incredibly grateful that her new friends had found a place within the Federation, as well as finally overcoming her worst fear as Rick took her to White Land. Using the technique James McCloud taught her, she had nothing to dread and she and Rick had never been more closer, as they felt complete at last.

Rick and Tinsel

A couple months later, Rick received his first bounty hunting assignment which happened to be in Port Town. The Hive was to set off an epidemic known as the T-Virus and is owned by the corrupt Umbrella Corp. Rick took the challenge to save his and the late Falcon's home world, and he barely made it out alive. Tinsel saw him comatose until he was revived hours after thanks to Falcon's encouragement as well as the Light Reactor Mights.

Several months later, she was engaged to Rick, and she remained by his side throughout his new career as a successful bounty hunter. After he reached 50 captors, he and she got a word from Jody that Lily Flyer needed to be rescued by a street gang. They did, and she informed them that she was practicing a tune that was rumored to awaken the plasma Deity of Giant, Plassein. She was on her way there; coincidentally, so were they to relax there for a week. This unexpectedly turned into a salvage mission on apprehending Don Genie, who was obsessed with money, and would fulfill a prophecy that the Chosen One must reunite the four Materia orbs to restore the world. This made Rick's 51st bounty, and Tinsel was with him all the way. Together, they went through the Deities temples and obtained the spheres, but Don made a last stand by shocking Rick and Plassein. In his weak state, he urged her to finish the mission by placing the orbs of Plassein and Gastro to their corresponding slots, resulting in the restoration of the warring triad, and the damage done to Giant. She and Rick recovered, mourned, and spent their week-long vacation, then he showed her his new abilities thanks to Goroh's rigorous tutoring. It was then that Tinsel witnessed Rick's profound techniques, and they both realized that he rightfully chose to follow Falcon's footsteps and those were the signs of the calling of his destiny.
Wedding

Wedding portrait of Rick + Tinsel taken by Clank.

She later met up with a lost alien from the Empyrean Colony named PJ; she and Rick volunteered to get him back on his feet after the massive explosion there.

She and Rick have set a future wedding date, on October 9, 2577, on the second anniversary on the day they first met in Planet Cryton, around four weeks after he woke up from cold sleep. The plans were all laid out, from the bridesmaids and ushers, to the locations of the ceremony and reception, to picking their mentor, Burt, as the wedding officiant. Heck, they already planned on what would their attire could look like. The merry occasion would start on that day, while also inviting some odd guests such as Goroh and his family, even the Duelists' other friends Tea and Tristian, and even Lewis Legend from the Dark Purveyors. Sadly, she never got her invitations back from Lewis nor Beat, not even Lily Flyer. She did decide the honeymoon should take place in Port Town, Rick agreed it'd be an advent for their future residence.

As Rick was curious on who her father of the bride should be, despite the fact her parents died several years ago, she wasn't certain; her mind went blank as she brainstormed any possible candidates, but they were so bizarre and unfitting. So Rick gave her some privacy to think things over, then...her mind snapped as repressed memories caught up to her! She screamed in agony, he came to her aid, and she was in hysterics while she recalled her neglectful old man, about how she refused to relocate to the Asian Colonies from Mute City. Rick immediately contacted the Stewarts and they were on the case. Meanwhile, he became worried that since she had this cold bias towards men as dominant figures, he thought the wedding could be cancelled, and their relationship broken... From his constant hobby on finding a mate there and having sex as a top priority and weapon, she ran away and Burt took her in, hence her residence near the Falcon House. Stewart assured her that he has died thanks to a tsunami which destroyed the Philippines, and she thought it was a way to punish the wicked. The docs tended to her turmoil and anxieties and assured her that Rick shall be the opposite of her farce father; she soon chose Dr. Stewart as the escort down the aisle afterwards. And she was ecstatic that Rick shut down 5 interplanetary brothels, and resisted Princia Ramode's charm when he went to the Desert Kingdom at Planet Magica; it was thanks to Haruka's ring that saved him from temptation, as she and Tinsel spoke to him subconsciously and broke the thrall, then the thot and her territory were destroyed by a meteor shower, as if a higher calling did the job!

Still, Rick returned with Stewart, and she was incredibly ecstatic knowing that he'll always be faithful to her and never give into temptation just as her father did. Through his wedding vows, and as long as he has Haruka's ring, he demonstrated how unbreakable their bond is. In addition, they received more than enough space credits to keep the occasion going. And she was soon invited to her bachelorette party at the Raining Spa and Salon, while the guys decided to go to Roller Rocket World for the evening bachelor party as well!

While there, Tinsel received a variety of services, such as a mud bath, full-body massage, relaxing at the sauna, and finally after about an hour, she headed to a fancy restaurant; this was definitely a good way to ease her inner turmoil her thot dad left! She also received some envelopes of money (shugi-bukuro), even a lot of space credits from Samurai Goroh thanks to the gems he stole and cashed in from the Desert Kingdom before it was destroyed.

With a fortnight to go, she received an unexpecting call; she feared it was some sexual prank, but it was only the Guardians of the Galaxy dropping a line to say hi, especially from Star-Lord, Rocket, and Baby Groot! As they apologized for not showing up on account of their busy bounty-hunting missions.

With only a week left, Tinsel finally received her dream wedding dress, comets and all, at the Falcon House! She and Rick also received some shugi-bukuro, Japanese envelopes of money that're impossible to untie and their sum was up to 3/4 of 1 million space credits! They presumed they'd pay the Falcon Fortress twice, so they cashed them in, and there were a few hundred thousand credits to spare! Heck, she also got a set of exotic drums from Planet Giant, as well as a ceremonial outfit symbolizing the Genbu (the Black Tortoise/Dark Warrior and Chinese elemental of winter).

Before she knew it, it was the day! Everyone but Rick and Burt were seated as she was being escorted by Dr. Stewart. She met up with Rick at the makeshift altar then Burt announced their union. They went thru a sake-sipping ceremony, the san-san-kudo, to symbolize purity and challenges, then they read their wedding vows, received their rings, and tied the knot w/ a passionate kiss! From that moment on, she's known as Tinsel Steelus Wheeler!! She enjoyed the reception, then went on stage to perform the duet, "Ebony and Ivory," w/ Kate and did the finale, "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," honoring Rick, Burt, and Haruka saving her from her dad's and mistresses' sins.

Soon enough, she went with Rick to the honeymoon in Port Town! Before she did, though, she performed the bouquet toss and Dr. Stewart managed to catch the batch of roses! She hopes he'll eventually settle w/ Jody! Meanwhile, Rick and Tinsel were being covered by thrown cherry rose petals as they headed to their chauffeur, PJ, and his Groovy Taxi. It went thru the warp gate toward the space harbor where the hovering yacht awaited them. They embarked and soaked in the incredible scenery; an hour later, they went below decks and settled down, or rather take their marriage to the next level. Rick was earnest to go all the way, unprotected, and Tinsel warned once he gets under her skin, there's no getting out. He accepted and their bodies and souls intertwined. The universe is at peace and aligned, just as they were, and as inseparable from that night on.

The Silver Comet was inspired by Hailey's Comet. As it shines while it races, its shape of the machine is very similar to a comet's luminous body and tail. This was revealed that it was once Dr. Clash's experimental machine, a prototype in which Tinsel obtained; much like Rick with the Dragon Bird. Despite the appearance, it's also able to shoot out ice beams, freezing her enemies. It was rumored to be by a reconstruction after the incident in White Land, from the nozzles to withstanding heat. A perfect example was when Tinsel was chasing after Rick who was on the pursuit for Jody to Planet Alcatran. The duo was attacked by Zoda, and Tinsel showed up at the last minute freezing the machine gun aloft instantly.

The Comet also has sub-par endurance, its defenses are still an improvement. But it's boost is extraordinary, and it handles sharp and slight turns fairly well. It's easy to handle and it helped Tinsel obtain many victories, even though she doesn't always mind being in first place. Until there was a slight change as it was enhanced by components from Bio Rex's Big Fang. It now has the same stats as the Dragon Bird EX, minus the Reactor Might she had. Thus, she couldn't use her ice beams unless there was one present in the ignition.

Tinsel's main weaknesses in racing were handling sharp turns, the Comet's weak endurance, as well as lagging behind her teammates. The thing is she usually wants her friends to win, as she always feels she may steal the spotlight from them. It was mostly they're job to win against Dark Million after all. And being she was a newbie, she never wanted to be a burden. Her other issue outside of competing was her meekness. Jody once lectured her about it, as she needs to take chances like Rick and Jack do. She must not hold back, even if the going gets tough despite being a woman. That if she could overcome her fears, she'd be unstoppable. Tinsel used that point of advice during the Big Blue race and won first while saving her life and Leon's in the process. Since then, it was the thing that kept her motivated on reuniting the Task Force.

Ebonyandivory

Ebony and Ivory

Tinsel is known to have a pure, sympathetic heart, and she would deal with any risk to help her allies in need, especially Rick whom she feels the most compassionate for. However, if you mess with her and her friends, she can be as cold as ice.

Relationships

Rick Wheeler

Tinsel first met Rick at the Falcon House while there were some technical problems with her Silver Comet; she felt intimidated since he's an officer working for the Galaxy Platoon, but Burt assured him he's a hero and pure since he was preoccupied with the ill kids as he's pursuing stolen medicine at Planet Cryton. She followed him and revealed his guide WAS Samurai Goroh, but it turned out he stole it from Vidion since he has a soft spot for kids, like his son Dai Goroh. Since then, Rick became her best friend, even encouraging her a lot, even when she joined the Task Force. Tinsel has given him some advice and support, as well as teaching him to be a more seasoned F-Zero pilot like herself; it was like deja vu on what Haruka did for him 150 years ago. Her infatuation grew and so did her feelings for him on that night when they encountered Miss Killer and saved his life by giving him mouth-to-mouth.

Her courage and confidence grew as she was searching for him and the missing members of the Task Force who were brainwashed by Dark Million. After she saved him from Black Shadow's thrall, and when Haruka said she needs him, and when she was saved at Dark Star after Miss Killer's scrimmage, she no longer hid her feelings. She was too afraid because of Rick's survivor's guilt and wanted to let him recover Haruka's mind; however since she was corrupt to begin with, he accepted and loved Tinsel more than ever.

They became roommates, boyfriend/girlfriend, fiancés, and soon newlyweds! Their relationship thrived, and Jody knew they were the perfect match; she was the ice that sooths Rick's ardency and cause him to think more thoroughly, while Rick's fire warms her heart and increases her confidence more. They share their positive traits, like having the elements merge to water, and become inseparable. According to Goroh, it's a close relationship as the Vermillion Dragon/Bird (Ryu Suzaku) and the Black Tortoise/Dark Warrior (Genbu).

Burt Lemming/Andy Summer

He took in a distraught Tinsel several years ago when she ran away from her estranged, neglectful old man as he'd been forcing her to relocate to the southern Asian Colony from Mute City. Knowing she'd be better off staying, he harbored her for awhile, despite the consequences on doing so. He mended her broken soul giving her support and being there for her needs. Since then, she shared the same apartment complex with him, Rick, Jack and soon Clank. He had became an angel toward her, as she'd mention during the finale of her upcoming reception.

He also admires Tinsel's relationship with Rick as he devoted the Falcon House to him and the late Falcon, even when she was searching for his beloved and the Task Force. He was always her sense of encouragement no matter what dire situations she'd possibly have.

Capt. Falcon

At first an unchallenged and difficult rival since the original F-Zero Grand Prix, till that incident in White Land. 13 years later, he became her temporary mentor as he taught her the technological advancements of her Comet, even mastering the Booster Fire. Tinsel kept her word on never revealing his location and became fast friends. He even respected her deep feelings for Rick, upon observance, and knew he made the right choice on sharing his mantle after he realized his morality. He knew that Rick was the savior and he must stay pure as he told her that saving Rick is vital for the galaxy's fate. Knowing he'll always be in good hands, Falcon made the sacrifice after he encouraged Rick to carry on his unstoppable legacy, and rely on Tinsel to support him.

Haruka Misaki

She accepted Tinsel as Rick's living, mutual partner. As she watched him for 150 years, she observed Tinsel's feelings for him and willfully accepted each of their deep feelings for each other. When she visited to say her goodbye to Rick, she knew she made the right choice for him to fall for Tinsel and vice versa. Both living and dead, they became Rick's guiding lights. The darker version, however, became Tinsel's lethal rival. The rookie of Dark Million quickly soared through the ranks, as did Tinsel as she was looking for the Task Force. They temporarily had a relationship as they were the top women of Dark Million when Tinsel was mesmerized. But at the Fire Field race, their archrivalry was demonstrated and she triumphed, making Tinsel lose her confidence and spirit on saving them. She took advantage of Rick's thrall and wanted to wipe out Tinsel to have him for herself as they reunited in the darkness. And she made every attempt to eliminate her and use his survivor's guilt, even during their scrimmage in Dark Star. Luna fell for her demise when Rick remembered what Haruka's lighter half said. Zoda Much like Miss Killer, he too was Tinsel's greatest adversary. Since he was Rick's assassin and negative driving force in his life, Tinsel considered him as her latter. She was always determined to cut him down to size, especially when she wanted to save Rick from harm. She did just that as Rick saved her from Zoda's captive in Port Town, then he was frozen and then shattered. She knew Haruka would be at peace, however, she won't till Dark Million's defeated.

Octoman

Thanks to her kind and generous nature, Octoman appreciated Tinsel for her donation to use to save Takora. Despite the fact he was a crony for Dark Million, she was the only one that still saw some good in him as a desperado for supporting his people. After the Green Plant preliminaries, Tinsel encouraged him to finally do the right thing and redeem himself since he grew more scared over Black Shadow's viciousness; realizing he never cares for his kin nor war-torn planet, he assisted Tinsel deal with the scoundrel, James McCloud; according to Clank, HE was the one who framed the Takorans against the Federation, and since the Cosmo Terminal quarterfinals, they shared their common goal. Since then, he couldn't thank Tinsel enough for believing in him, and they remained as close friends when he enrolled for the Task Force. Leon Like Octoman, he too appreciated Tinsel's charity, and he was willing to help her search for the Task Force and save the galaxy from Dark Million's annihilation, aside from the fact it's for the pups. They became fast, close allies ever since, even when they admitted their feelings for Lucy and Rick respectively. Much like Rick, he has been a supporter and loyal friend to Tinsel, even when he decided to join the Task Force during hers and Rick's resignation.

Samurai Goroh

At first he was Tinsel's bitter rival/enemy since the original F-Zero Grand Prix, and Tinsel had always recognized him as such! He was surprised she survived the incident at White Land and mocked he's not afraid of ghosts. Tinsel always held some negativity for Goroh, while Rick sees some good in him regardless. It took her a long time, but she slowly warmed up to him, especially when he became Rick's own sensei and mentor. She does like the fact she's related to the Black Tortoise, and that her relationship is close to Rick like it and the Vermillion Bird.

Dr. Stewart

Another rival from the previous F-Zero competition, technically GX unlike his dad from the original. But after she joined the Task Force, she opened up to him as he became her personal physician and mentor. He was the one who shared his secrets of Capt. Falcon, while she still stayed true to her word on never breaking her promise on never revealing his location. She has grown comfortable on whatever was bothering her, including her infatuation with Rick, and even combatting her repressed memories and inner demons. In fact, while Rick was nervous on getting intimate, w/ Tinsel's permission he unveiled a secret of her...unique turn-on, which soon became Rick's as well. On top of that, for Tinsel's wedding, he became her escort down the aisle.

Yugi Muto/Yami Yugi

They were both courageous adventurers that share their styles on utilizing skill than luck, even when they, along with Joey, set foot on following Capt. Falcon, their inspiration on being the best on what they do. He was Tinsel's closest Dueling buddy as well as the latter being her mentor and aspiration. That was till she quit as she thought she'd be a burden for the 10,000-year old curse involving the Great Leviathan...

While Tinsel's relationship was long distance, he still was a good friend helping her in her times of need, including dire emergencies utilizing his Monsters.

Since Rick and Tinsel, the Task Force, and the galaxy were important, and since it involved Falcon again, Yugi/Yami was on the case defeating his old nemesis, Black Shadow/Deathborn; it was quite shocking of the revelation and how he survived his demise. He took on the battles vigilantly and learned on the legend involving the universal forces determining the galaxy's fate, including Falcon as the Yang/Deathborn as the Yin/Rick as the Wuji. Yami himself knew that Rick as the savior would put the universe in good hands and was grateful on meeting his friends thanks to Tinsel. He knew that her relationship with Rick would maintain the universe's peace and safety. Which was why Yugi was enthusiastic on their upcoming matrimony.

Lucy Liberty

Like Rick, they both started as a bunch of newbies; however, unlike Rick, she has learned the ways of F-Zero thanks to her mentor, Dr. Clash. Both Tinsel and Lucy share similar personality traits; they're sweet, young, compassionate and docile, but they can up the ante if necessary. They're both determined, devoted in their own crafts, and loyal to their associates. Plus both their machines are lightweight, non-enduring, and nimble suiting their styles. Though Tinsel's more of a tomboy than Lucy as a girly girl; they seem to have a close relationship with Leon, and they admit to each of their feelings for their loved ones.

Jody Summer

They're both strong, independent women who respect each other, though Jody's strict personality is Tinsel's biggest turnoff. Despite that, she admires her great traits including her motherly instincts and devotion to her missions, even when Tinsel lost it after she dealt with the treacherous Truman. Both of their machines are light, flexible and low endurance, and Jody always wants to bring out the best in that veteran, hence why she chose her as a member of her team. And why she lectured her on being meek and not much of a risk-taker, unlike Rick and Jack whom she should learn more; she always wants her to break her limits.

"Only those who go too far will know exactly how far they can go. Think about it."

When she was brainwashed by Dark Million, she became their personal assassin w/ Miss Killer and Tinsel let out all her rage and hate onto her. As she was recovering when she reunited w/ Andy, she was determined to save her and the universe in order to redeem herself. Later on, she became more of the motherly wolf and gave Tinsel one final mission, to take care of Wheeler, during their resignation; she was fully aware that Tinsel and Rick's relationship began to blossom, even Stewart knew, while she was still too nervous to admit it to him.

From then on, she always watched the couple closely even from afar as she'd keep tabs on Rick during his bounty-hunting missions. She always supported them and encouraged both respectively when things seem the most dire. She's so devoted that she even decided to plan some elements of their matrimony.

"This baby is hot in cold courses, cool in hot courses, and it looks SPECTACULAR when it speeds across the track. It's a great machine, and I NEVER want to replace it! Unless...if I would count the Dragon Bird."
