Need a class name for a d20 Modern-based project

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 8

One of my on-and-off pet projects is making a revised, Pathfinderized d20 Modern.

I've expanded and renamed the base classes, and in a few cases split the classes into two (and/or made new classes). One case is the Fast hero, which I felt was quite broad.

One of the "fast hero" split offs is a class focusing on movement/mobility and has a sort of extreme sports theme. Members of this class would include (but are not limited to) excellent athletes, extreme sports enthusiasts (think mountain climbers, sky divers), free runners, and racecar drivers. I'm still tweaking the abilities, but they'd get extra movement, evasion/bonuses to saves versus certain kinds of damage (like from avoiding explosions and the like), and such. Talent trees would focus on acrobatics tricks, stunt driving tricks, and combat abilities pinging off of things like attacks of opportunity and bonuses to initiative.

I can't think of a good name for the class (and I think a good name would help me focus its abilities and theme further). I started off with "Athlete" or "Acrobat" but I feel like those are too broad and too generic. An earlier draft was called "speedster" but it was too narrowly focused on fast movement and it's also a dumb name.

Thoughts?

Thank you.


Considering the original class names included "Strong" and "Tough", "Fast" isn't that off. Perhaps "agile", or "nimble"?

As I said in the OP, all the classes have been renamed. Although nothing's set in stone and all could get revised, other class names include Bruiser, Tank, Genius (or supergenius), Survivor, Minister, and Personality (the advanced class equivalent is now called Superstar), amongst others.

Notably, I need a noun, not an adjective.

Thank you for posting, however.

Speed, dodging, quick movement.

Tracer, from the french traceur a practitioner of Parkour.

Or perhaps Freerunner if you want the basic English.

Hmmm... cool. Neat! I mentioned freerunners in my OP but I wasn't familiar with the traceur term. That's worth thinking about. Thanks!
