[edit] Biography

Co-founder of Conjectural Technologies with Master Billy Quizboy, there are many words that could be used to describe Pete White... starting with "white". Pete is an albino who works and lives with his best friend, Billy Quizboy. Due to his condition, he must protect his pale skin from the sun with either a parasol or a hat (as seen in the episode "Spanakopita!") and sunglasses.

His first known association with the Ventures came in college where he went with Dr. Venture, Baron √únderbheit and The Monarch, and where he hosted a New Wave radio show called "The White Room". Pete is intelligent but lazy, self-absorbed but extremely loyal to his friends. Billy and other characters have speculated that he is gay. However, he is actually straight, and is shown to have interest in both Dr. Girlfriend and Triana Orpheus. Pete also has a tendency towards some mean spirited jokes as well as a passive aggressive nature. He is quite sarcastic and often snide, but this seems mostly due to his belief that he is a "freak", as he puts it, from being an albino.

After college, White and Billy Quizboy worked in tandem on a Jeopardy-styled gameshow, called "QuizBoys" in which Pete hosted and Billy participated, with Pete using makeup and a black wig to hide his albinism. There was a debacle concerning the show seeding Billy's answer display with the correct answer, regardless of what he put down. After being fired, White revealed to Billy that he is an albino and the two of them left to find new lives. They try to get a job working for Rusty Venture but they are rejected. White then tries to enter Quizboy into another competition, not realizing it is a dog-fighting ring, and Billy loses an eye and a hand. While the two had a short falling out, Pete eventually rejoined Billy (after his short unwanted stint with O.S.I. and his task of spying on Phantom Limb). They find refuge in a trailer near the Venture Compound.

Pete White is a tall, handsome man with pale, pink skin, white hair concealing half of his face, white eyebrows, and dark red eyes. He most often wears a pink shirt with a white jacket overtop it, and pink pants, though he has been shown in other outfits as well.

Billy's skill as a surgeon attracted the attention of The Investors, who bought stock in Conjectural Technologies for $10,000,000. This money was payment for the future services of Billy as a surgeon, although Pete and Billy didn't know it at the time. They stood the risk of losing this money to the Monarch but by Guild law the Monarch was forced to give it back after Dr. Venture rescued Hank before the Monarch could "return" him.

He and Billy have worked their ways deeply into Doc and Dean's psyches, taking on the roles of Thanatos and Eros (respectively) in Doc's subconscious and The White One and Giant Boy Detective in Dean's fantasy. They frequently argue over whom is the protagonist and who is the sidekick, resulting in them both being kidnapped in Any Which Way But Zeus.
