Sprinkles is a private person. It is extremely rare for him to talk about his past and if he does, it is usually a watered down version with little to no detail. He isn't against talking about his recent past, around the time they got to the island, but he really doesn't like to get too personal with people.
He has a temper and a short fuse to boot but won't go out of his way to blow up on someone unless they are the aggressor. Leave him alone to sleep and all will be right with the world. He isn't a total stick in the mud, though. On occasion he can be less of an asshole when doing things he enjoys, like listening to old music or enjoying the company of his trolls.Likes:
- Alone time
- Music (60s typically)
- Movies (secret guilty pleasure)
- Being touched
- Loud, unnecessary noise
- Waking up
- New people
- People that do things 'just cuz'
- His gourd tree being damaged or found
- Verd getting killed because she's a walking disaster (though more of a casual concern)
- Jirou leaving
- Biting his lips
- Tail twitching, usually when annoyed
Family: Has a few hundred 'siblings' or 'children' that were birthed through the gourd tree.
Friends: Verd and Jirou
Other Relationships: N/A
Sprinkles had a fairly happy existence before encroaching humans destroyed most of the area he lived in. He escaped with a group of about 100 of his family, along with his dug up gourde tree, though others were not so lucky. He became the leader of their ragtag group and wondered around Europe for quite awhile before following others to the New World before it was properly settled.
When the humans caught up with them there and began to settle their communities, Sprinkles and his family bounced around from one haven to another, not staying long because of their group size. His once happy, friendly disposition deteriorated from these events, having the weight of such responsibility crushing the lightheartedness right out of him.
Eventually they stumbled upon the abandoned island and had it all to themselves for a few years. He met Verd only a few years after living there, her being the only different kind of thing on that island for 60 years. You could say they are best friends, kind of.
They were pretty peaceful and had gotten use to dull days until he ran into Jirou and was followed. It took some getting use to but all is well and it's been 15 years since anyone else has shown up. I'm sure he'll be thrilled if others do. *cough*
(There is a longer history I have on stash but I felt it was too huge and dumb but if you are curious let me know ahahahsdlkfjasga)
His gourd tree is hidden extremely well on the island and well guarded.
His family consists of 109 members, all which live on the island with him. They are usually out of sight, though, residing in his apartment building or hiding around. They do talk but are just recently getting use to speaking English and they do not leave the island.
He can contact juggle and do a few sleight of hand tricks.
He is missing his pinkie toe on his right foot because of a certain lady snake.
Knows how to speak in his troll tongue, Swedish and partially some other Scandinavian languages, Greek profanity (thanks Verd) and English.
