About Spike Spiegel

Spike is a bounty hunter traveling through space in his ship, Bebop, and with his crew. Spike isn’t the ordinary hero you would expect. He isn’t one to jump up at any job to help out, but if it sounds interesting he will always get the job done. When he’s not working, Spike likes to spend most of his time doing absolutely nothing. He’s usually seen on the Japanese anime series, Cowboy Bebop, laying around inside the ship watching television or reading magazines.

While claiming he doesn’t do his line of work to help people and that it’s strictly business, we can all see through his tough exterior to really see the good guy that he really is. Even when he is harsh to the rest of the crew, he doesn’t mean to hurt anyone and actually truly cares for them. Spike puts on a big game of being tough, but he has fears just like anyone else does.
