Carc: "Great. All we need. OctoProwl" (sarcasm)
Prowl got the Green Lantern ring because while he is a joker and a comedian and a bit immature at times he does have some incredible will power. To be able to get up every morning for a routine that is excrutiatingly painful so he can go in and fight in a ring or in a cage is formidable on it's own. Prowl's willpower goes deeper than that. He really is a "No one gets left behind" type of man. If the chips are down and they have to get out of Dodge and someone is wounded he absolutely will NOT leave them. If he can't rescue them in then secretly in his heart he will stay and die with them.
"Nobody dies for me!"
"Tough shit. If you can't stop them then you sure can't stop me."
That mentality comes from his own one fear. The only thing he fears is being alone. He could have the devil himself with ten red lantern rings but he'd stand defiant against the devil. He'd be afraid, sure, but he wouldn't run. He'd put up one hell of a fight. But drop him far enough from people where he'd have no hope of seeing anybody and he'd be terrified. That fear fuels his need to make sure nobody dies alone.
Trained as an assassin but really just a cat burglar (harharhar) he can do damn near anything.
I can see him in my mind now... giving the oath on Oa for the first time...
"In brightest day and blackest night
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my power
Green lantern's light"
And as he looks across to all the other lanterns a big stupid smile comes across his face...
"Because we the unwitting
lead by the incompetent
Do the impossible for the ungrateful.
We have been doing this for so long
we are fully capable to do almost anything with absolutely nothing."
He gets the name Prowl from being able to get into anything. He's a world class master cat burglar. He's also an MMA fighter, kickboxer, boxer, and pain in the ass.
