This little one is a child.
Not actually a human, though may or may not believe/have at some point believed himself to be one.
His hair grows long quickly and needs to be cut often. His dad cuts his hair, hence the odd haircuts. Eventually he’ll stop cutting his hair altogether and it will grow really really long.
The D on his overalls is the first letter of his name (I call him Donnie in my fanfics).
Will never grow up mentally, will pretty much grow into an adult-sized child.
He can (or will at some point be able to) summon rain through a special dance. (The one he did during the chaotic part of DHMIS, right before the storm appeared)
His parents are very organised and sophisticated, but spend so much time in business work that they rarely get time to spend with him. Because of this, the bird puppet has more of a relationship with his friends than his parents.
He’s a few years older than the yellow puppet but very mature and adult-like in nature. He gets this personality from his parents and is quite intelligent.
He met the yellow puppet when they were both very young, and befriended the strange child out of pity before eventually growing to genuinely enjoy his presence.
His fingers have claws on their tips, like the toes on his bird feet, though he tends to file them down so they aren’t sharp.
Red guy (Not calling him puppet because he’s played by a guy in a suit)
He’s covered in fur. The hair on his head is a lot longer than the hair on the rest of him.
Part of the hair is his beard, but it’s hard to tell the head-hair from the beard-hair.
Females of his species have beards too.
He’s the oldest, in early adulthood, and owns the house.
The red guy met the bird puppet soon after he hatched, their mothers being friends at the time. He later met the yellow puppet through the bird puppet befriending him. (Is this getting confusing?)
The red guy allowed the other two to live with him as the bird’s parents had little time to care for their son, and he doesn’t trust Roy.
He’s very good at hiding his emotions, especially given his concealed face. In fact, sometimes he’s too good at hiding his emotions and doesn’t express himself enough when he should.
Roy (Yellow puppet’s dad)
Has a reputation as a creep due to his bizarre looks and that blank, unsettling stare.
Got his nose broken after telling a silly pun to a bad-tempered man at a bar.
Isn’t really a bad guy, just comes across as creepy. Although he’s not always the best role-model or most responsible parent, he loves his son dearly.
Roy’s son is all he has left, he has no friends, his family doesn’t talk to him any more, and his wife went missing soon after the birth of their son.
He breathes heavily because his nose is crooked.
Roy acts very differently with his son than with others. With his son he can be quite cheerful, but around others he appears very still, quiet, to the point of making others feel uncomfortable.
Roy acts this way because he himself feels uncomfortable around others, given that he knows they see him as a creep, therefore he thinks of himself as a creep, so he is very distant to others, coming across as creepy, all in an unfortunate cycle.
Roy had a red an blue striped cap he used to wear (Which, along with his overalls, made him look like quite a dork) before giving it to his son.
Likes to ‘get creative’, but doesn’t like others being creative in ways the sketchbook doesn’t like.
They don’t like the colour green, obviously, so they deemed it ‘uncreative’.
Has a very “Be yourself! But only in the ways I say you can!” sort of attitude.
They have the power to read and evoke creativity within the minds of others, but if this power is used too much on someone their creativity will turn into vivid hallucinations. This is what happened to the three friends the sketchbook sang to that one time.
The sketchbook can be quite a jerk, but isn’t violent. They were quite disturbed by what happened during DHMIS and refused to speak to the three friends again afterwards.
The sketchbook isn’t really bothered about not having a proper name.
Tony the clock
Tony can make his face and limbs disappear and reappear at will.
Tony can actually embody different kinds of clocks, if his current body gets too worn over time he will find a new one.
Tony has existed or a very, very long time and has seen many living beings come and go. Having never formed a relationship with any living being and mourned their passing, he is quite unaffected by deaths of others. He does not quite understand the significance of death to those who inevitably have to face it.
Because of this, Tony was displeased by the yellow puppet’s reaction to being shown the (less pleasant) effects of time on living beings. He assumed “Make it stop” meant “I don’t want this to ever happen to me” rather than “This is painful please put me back to normal now”. Hence his response “It’s out of my hands, I’m only a clock”. He could have stopped the rotting right then and there, but not their inevitable death and eventual decay as he assumed the yellow puppet was referring to.
Tony is a lot more aggressive in nature than the sketchbook. Although not blatantly murderous, Tony can and does do things that bring harm to others, as we have seen, though he’s not always aware of the suffering he causes as he is incredibly desensitised to it.
Tony named himself.
