|A Polished Pilot 'Til The Day He Dies|
|Mortimer "Silver" Neelson|
Silver Neelson is a pilot in the F-Zero series and the oldest human racing.
No racer has entered more F-Zero races than Mortimer "Silver" Neelson. He's raced for decades now and has never missed a single race in his career. However he has never won a single Grand Prix in his many years of racing. Despite this he is quite a fan favorite for being the ultimate underdog. Amongst many people it is understood that eventually Neelson will finally start winning races - a though that has made a lot of money for the gambling businesses.
However his old age has caused many pilots to think of him as a joke and that he should retire. Although he has considered doing so, he feels that he'll probably keep racing even after he turn 100. In his old age he has got rather crotchety about racing and criticizes some of the new fangled devices used by the younger pilots. Despite that, he's considered a great mentor and just buying him a few drinks, pilots can get as much advice in an evening as you would in a year of racing.

The Night Thunder was designed by Neelson's childhood friend, Gold. It was designed to be highly competitive with strong power bursts and advance dashing ability. Gold himself has since passed away, but his mind and emotions were preserved in the cybernetic systems of the Night Thunder navigation system.
