Rave is always on the cutting edge of cool. If there is a new album, he has it. A new T-shirt, he's wearing it. A new catch phrase, he's always saying it. Rave is a huge fan of the band Vinal Fellony and is constantly explaining why they are the coolest band around.
Rave has a semi-secret rivalry with his fellow student HP, as HP is more popular than Rave is. Of course Rave will never be open about this rivalry because then he would have to admit HP is more popular than him.
