Designed for my scifi setting, the Hotshot pilot is a proof-of-concept character illustrating that a Novice character can work as a viable combat pilot. An archetypal character in conflict/action oriented science fiction and space opera, the Hot Shot pilot is often young, brash, and oozing with talent. Basically good at heart, it can sometimes be difficult to notice under the bluff and bluster the pilot tosses about to make himself feel as important as he really wishes he was.
This character was built using the rules in the Savage Worlds Test Drive v6 Document. However, I see nothing that conflicts with the rules presented in the Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition.
