+1 for a custom character. We can then use it to create lost of poses etc.

I suggest to concentrate on the character and not the image. I'd think that a
guy named "Bob" that looks like these http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join is
better than a shiny thing like Firefox which is hard to adopt in various poses
and contexts.

Ideally it should:

 * Look daring/fearless (reflecting Fedora's vision for bleeding-edge)
 * At the same time friendly/earnest and potentially serious
 * Be simple enough to easily yield a stuffed puppet

An example for the above is FreeBSD's daemon mascot:

And OpenBSD's:
