Raphael (or Raph for short) is one of the four protagonists of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Named after the 16th century Italian painter Raphael, he is the most impatient, aggressive and hot-headed of the turtles. He has an extremely short temper and displays considerable joy in combat, genuinely enjoying life-threatening situations where he can prove his skill. His weapons of choice are twin sais. He may by grumpy and tough but on the other hand he is known to have a soft side when caring for his pet turtle Slash. It is also shown that he loves his brothers very much, and shows his nurturing side at times, mostly to his younger brother Michelangelo. However, he often feels that his family doesn't understand or accept him so he doesn't usually open up to them.
