This article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community. It is just one of many Rumors that we've found in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill. You can find more Rumors about Basilio Fig at their Rumor Registry.
When on the Hawai'i Fridays, Fig was known as a strong surfer and would often spend their free time along the beach. Post Feedback to the Unlimited Tacos, in an attempt to fit in to their view of LA culture, Fig began to secretly learn skateboarding, with the goal of showing off a kickflip to the team. However, they soon realized they were the only one on the team who knew how to skateboard, based on the team's astounded reactions to their tricks. Picking up longboarding soon after has led the team to referring to Fig's methods of transportation as "concrete surfing".
Fig has since become skilled in all manner of extreme skateboarding tricks, enjoying the adrenaline of them and often making somewhat risky decisions. Everyone agrees that their sick skateboard tricks are very cool. This propensity for extreme splorts is what allowed them to become a Fire Eater in the Season 9 Elections, thus allowing them to get even more thrills out of Blaseball plays, and keeping their team safer from incineration. When asked about the rumor that a dull flame has burned on them consistently since Elections, they responded that "Fire is a rebirth, so I don't mind its vibe as long as there's no forest fires".
Fig, outside of and sometimes even in their Blaseball uniform, is noted as extending their risky skate tricks to risky fashion statements, never seen without a tacky outfit or accessory. They are often seen practicing in a series of neon tank tops with slogans on them such as 'I flexed and the sleeves fell off', 'My other car is a surfboard', or 'Suns out, guns out'. After spending more time with the team and discovering Basilio Mason's high fashion history, Fig has continued to play off of ridiculous patterns and color combinations, contrasting Mason's put-together style.
