Pinky got its name from when it first arrived on Earth. It crash landed in the vibrant pink-hued neon of a red-light district. Space Cyclop's camouflage themselves to blend in, so what better color than hot-blush for such a seedy place?
For reasons unknown, Pinky hates crabs (of the aquatic kind), but no one quite knows why.
It usually spends its time these days as a hardworking mascot, doing what it can to help out at X-Plus.
