My second character for
, the goblin prankster Rupert.
Age = adult
Species = goblin
Size = 3 feet (when crouched); 6 feet (when standing up straight)
History = Rupert grew up in New York. His family was huge – as most goblin families are – but he enjoyed being part of that huge unit. However, after his parents lost their jobs for their part in an April Fool’s Day prank – that had most of the NY fire department working for most of the day – the family had to dissolve, and Rupert headed west. Eventually, he found himself in the same city as Luka. He was feeling particularly gobliny one day and decided to steal two scarves from a textiles dealer in an open market. Rupert would proudly brag about how he ran and lost his pursuers by hiding in Luka’s branches, but he is not pleased that she paid for them afterwards. He gave her the plaid one – keeping the paisley one for himself – and decided to follow her. No reason, but goblins don’t really have reasons for half the things they do anyway.
Personality = Rupert is somewhat of a typical goblin – reckless and mischievous. He won’t pass up a chance to pull a prank on someone else. He does restrain himself around Luka, though; he has never played a single prank on her besides messing up her occasional story. Rupert is kind-hearted… he just shows it in odd ways.
