| COMMUNITY LORE|
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Sky is a stellar jay known for her prominent Mohawk. She has phoenix ancestry and eats hot coals instead of candy. She has been observed antagonizing umpires with rude songs and breakneck flybys, aided by her apparent immunity to flame. She is the president of the Dallas-Forth Worth Volunteer Fire Department and two-time winner of the Lars Mendoza Memorial Chili Cook-Off with her Eight Bean Barn Burner.
After Ogden Mendoza's incineration, the Breckenridge Jazz Hands gathered around the molten remains of their marble player. Sky flew from a nearby snow-covered tree and landed on Mendoza's mitt. She lifted a still-smouldering blaseball from the mitt and flung it over the plate and into the stands. This was the first known instance of Sky’s now famous signature beakball pitch. Comfort Septemberish solemnly proclaimed, “Takes a licking, and keeps on ticking.” Needing a new pitcher, the Jazz Hands accepted them into the team.
Sky has been frequently asked by interviewers to give a statement on their opinion of their blaseball-hating brethren. They refuse to comment at this time, but there is a glint in their eye every time the question is asked.
During and after the game of Season 4, Day 73, a frustrated Sky revealed that they grew up in Hellmouth, and had some history of bullying from the local birds. They apparently still like Hellmouth despite this.
