Role in the Games
WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW
Pandergast is introduced early on into the game. His primary purpose in the game is to serve as the host for the racing modes. It isn't until the tenth level of the game where he's portrayed more antagonistically, where he holds Glumshanks hostage as a reward to anyone who can win his Rideocalypse Demolition Derby.
