Kintype: I still don’t know what that is
Family: His father is dead, he doesn’t have any known siblings, but his mother is most likely still alive. He’s never met her, though

Notable/unique features: None, really
Usual clothing: That totally depends on the timeline he’s thrown into. Originally, he was from the 20’s, so he’d wear dark pants, button-ups and suspenders. But tbh, except for the suspenders this probably doesn’t change in modern times

Backstory: Kidnapped by his father to live in the circus (his mother thought this was an unsafe environment for a baby). His mother either never came for him or never found him. He grew up among his father’s tigers, because his father had been a tiger trainer for many years. His father was super chill about him cuddling up with the big cats when he was still a toddler and they accepted him as one of their own. Unfortunately, they got a little too excited that one time and bit his father to death. He insisted on keeping the tigers, though and is now working as the tiger trainer in the circus.

Likes: Peace and quiet, animals, specifically tigers, Celio, the circus, people of the circus, alone time

But then, like, I can see him actually bonding with maybe the kind of children that remind him of himself when he was younger…the quiet type…and they’d probably like him too and they could just quietly sit next to each other and that’d be kinda cute, yes.

What is something someone has told them that they can’t forget (two good things and one bad)?: One good thing was probably something Aurelie or her father said about his performance (I actually have quotes in mind that I made up, but I guess that would get to sappy now) and I can’t come up with anything bad (not because nothing bad has ever been said to him)
