Summary: A Big Game Hunter who hunts all avatars
Van Pelt NPC
Owned by: Jaxx
Game: Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Online
Real Name/Gender/AgeVan Pelt is a big game hunter who resides within the deepest darkest dimension of the cursed board game, "JUMANJI".
Job/Skills/AbilitiesElephant gun, sniper rifle, and pistol: His weapon of choice is a modified lever-action Winchester M1901 shotgun rifle. The shotgun had been modified with a custom stock, a false box magazine and a large tube placed over the barrel in order to make it appear to be a large caliber elephant gun.
Tracking: Van Pelt's hunting skills and tracking abilities are second to none, as he can sniff out his prey by their scent, and track their pace by observing the environment left behind them. He is known to even use a magnifying class for closer inspection.
Invulnerability: Van Pelt awaits being mauled by a lioness due to holding her cub. Despite being slashed by a saber, crushed to death by collapsed paint pots, mauled by a mother Lioness, impalement from a Rhinoceros trophy's horn or completely swallowed by creatures, Van Pelt has always emerged unscathed, making him un-killable as he is a game-essential character. Alan has even acknowledged that he is indestructible and the only way to stop him would be to either imprison or throw him into a bottomless pit.
Swagger stick: Akin to 1800s army officers, Van Pelt carries a swagger stick to restrain or injure opponents. It has a leash that can hook onto ledges to prevent falls or restrain opponents, evidently when hanging on the edge of a bottomless pit and intending to take Alan down with him.
Hound horn: When needing extra help when hunting prey, Van Pelt can blow on a horn that will summon a duo of ravenous black mastiff-like hunting dogs to chase prey. The hounds can however be turned on their master if they hear the horn being blown by someone else.
Saber: When traveling through the ever-growing Jumanji jungle where the vegetation grows faster than bamboo, Van Pelt uses a Saber to cut his way through plants in his path.
Tractor: When taking multiple or very large prey back to his lodge, Van Pelt drives a steampunk, locomotive tractor around the jungles.
Gold coins: He carries Victorian era gold coins to barter with.
