Crash Bandicoot is a mutated Eastern Barred Bandicoot who was created by the demented Doctor Neo Cortex to be the general of his growing army of super-animal soldiers and lead them to world domination.
However, when Crash was proven to be unworthy of Cortex's army, he was promptly ejected from Cortex's island castle and washed up on N. Sanity Island.
To exact revenge on Cortex and to rescue a female bandicoot named Tawna, Crash returned to Cortex's castle and destroyed it, foiling Cortex's dreams of world domination.
Crash is a very emotional character, quick to laugh and quick to cry. He loves a good tussle every now and then and is fearless and danger-loving by nature, but he rarely seeks out trouble and prefers a good bask in the sun.
Crash is not known for his grasp on the English language and instead communicates through gibberish vocalizations. In the first Crash Bandicoot game, his voice (including his trademark "Whoa!" that has been used as a stock sound effect in subsequent games) is provided by Brendan O'Brien, who voiced a handful of other characters in the game.
In Crash Team Racing, he is voiced by Billy Pope. In Crash Nitro Kart, he is voiced by VA Steve Blum, who also voiced the villainous Emperor Velo XXVII in the same game. From Crash Tag Team Racing onward, he is voiced by voice actor Jess Harnell.
