Elegant is a phantom thief of sorts, or atleast, he believes he is (because nobody has told him that they're supposed to be righteous yet), and so he dresses the part. Really though, the only part of his outfit that deviates from the traditional drattle wear is his lace mask and long, dark cape, coming straight from a masquerade party and obfuscating his identity.
Although he barely fits in his black tuxedo and tight pants, Elegant is an incredible acrobat, zipping across rooftops and through windows, easily escaping from even the tightest roadblocks and traps in seconds. Some theorize that this is due to some sort of gravity defying gadget, others say that all the "fat" is really just extremely tight packed muscle. Regardless of how unreal it sounds to say that he has backflipped up 3 stories without having broken a sweat, he still did it.
His last notable quality is that his mustache is said to be quite the magnificent specimen, with a length dwarfing most others' and a signature gleam even the biggest enthusiasts would be hard pressed to reproduce.
Like many phantom thieves before him, Elegant is known for being cocky, yet careful. He is completely fine with sparing an incredibly childish taunt or two to pursuers before practically disappearing into thin air, even if his delivery slows him down tremendously.
Unlike many phantom thieves before him, Elegant doesn't actually steal anything. Or make righteous claims to oust an evil party. Or, well, anything you'd expect a phantom thief to do. Nobody's quite sure why it is he's so obsessed with the concept of phantom thieves. Sometimes he'll even come back to the scene of the crime to correct officers wrongly writing down "mustachioed creep" in the report instead of phantom thief.
Elegant is a wanted criminal bearing the universe's 7th biggest bounty. Surprisingly however, the reason for this is not horrible crimes of a ruthless nature, rather a record-breaking amount of petty pranks, capable of breaking even the most patient of people.
Elegant had always been a fanatic of practical pranks, but it only got in the way of the usual drattle blowing-up-stars-for-the-sake-of-blowing-up-stars and tying-a-helpless-maiden-to-traintracks-for-the-sake-of-tying-a-helpless-maiden-to-traintracks when one of his henchmen jokingly and angrily told him that "Pranks are the true evil. You should do them to everyone. I bet that'd get you even more horrible results. Asshole." after sitting on a chair with a whoopee cushion. The henchman never expected Elegant to take it seriously, and he also never expected himself to actually be right.
His modus operandi consists of nothing more than landing in front of a victim, tying together their sleeves, tentacles, or any tendril shaped organs into absurdly complex and almost beautiful knots, and disappearing into the night as if he was some form of hallucination the victim made up.
Victims usually find these events humorous albeit strange in nature and think nothing of them beyond a funny story to tell others later at their bar of choice, that is, before Elegant strikes a second time. And a third. And a fourth. And a fifth. And then victims have no choice but to become paranoid husks, fearing for their sleeves from the Knotable Monster of the night.
With the addition of the fibrae to the universal community however, Elegant's pranks went from a couple dozen minor police reports to legendary tales from peer to peer, victim to victim, recounting the harrowing experiences they had to suffer through.
There is no more preferred victim to Elegant than a fibrae.
Once having tied a fibrae into a replica of a long forgotten monument titled the "Eiffel Tower", his reign of tyranny upon this species knows no bounds. The fibrae are like putty in his hands and he made sure that all of them knew it.
Before long, countless fibrae donation campaigns and even some decrees by the fibrae government to get him off the street turned what was once an obscure prankster into one of the most wanted men in the local galaxy.
Elegant's henchman's jaw only grew wider and wider the more Elegant managed to increase the size of his bounty. There was nothing he could do anymore. Elegant had grown and left the coop. Nobody was going to stop him. Not even his former right hand evil man.
Fastest knot in the west: Even amongst drattles, Elegant's tying skills are top notch. He can tie the most complex of formations in seconds, leaving victims not even the chance to ask him to stop.
It takes about an hour (at minimum) for a fibrae to untie itself when struck by this smooth criminal.
• Apparently the name "Magnificent" was copyrighted, so Elegant had to compromise.
• The current fibrae dictator, Fontange the Terrible, is a known victim of Elegant's atrocities, contributing to 37% of the bounty on Elegant's head, making Fontange the single biggest contributor to the gigantic number.

• Elegant is known to attack from any angle. Paranoid victims desperately searching the air will find themselves pulled from below as they step on a manhole, only to come out of it once again tied.
