Sterling LaVaughn was once the greatest driver in the F-MAX Grand Prix, a competition that predates the coming of F-Zero by some 200 years. Thanks to the inexplicable powers of science and black magic, The Skull has returned to this world to compete once again. With his remarkable technique and decision-making powers, he now has a chance to extend his legacy into a new generation.

For a long time, Sterling was able to win race after race without ever suffering a single injury, despite how bloody the F-Max was at that time. Realizing he could not avoid death forever, he used a combination of science and black magic to arrange his own immortality. His plan worked and during one horrendous accident, the Grand Finale of the F-Max Grand Prix, he and several others were burned alive.

What happened next is unknown, but two hundred years later he emerged as a figure composed of only his original skeleton. He joined the F-Zero Grand Prix to compete yet again, as nothing else in life but racing held any meaning to him anymore. He's become an even better pilot than before, as he now no longer fears death and can make split second decisions better than ever before. He now goes by the name "The Skull".

In the anime, he plays a supporting antagonist role, where he works for the Dark Million organisation as a henchman, where his black magic powers come to use.

Trivia

  • He is possibly the oldest F-Zero pilot, but the ages of many racers (such as Deathborn) are unknown so it is also possible that he isn't the oldest.
  • He is named "Arbin Gordon" in the Japanese-language games.
