Herbi was designed via meme with the help of my twitter followers suggesting one trait at a time! Thanks, friends! I had a ton of fun working out how to design a coherent, usable character from such silly and varied prompts.
- their full name is Herbiualo, Herbi for short
- not a sentient 1963 Volkswagen Beetle from a movie franchise
- possibly a love bug tho
- left-handed. wishes lefty keytars existed. their engineer dad keeps offering to help them make one custom, but their orange shs-10 is so cute...
- a competitor in Catband. chill, bubbly, friendly with the other contestants. the opposite of "I'm not here to make friends"
- operatic arena emo punk
- not really expecting any kind of success; here to have fun and show off their unique thing
- the kind of person who knits all the time to keep their hands busy and nerves calm; want a scarf? bc they're probably going to get through a few over the course of the competition. they'll let you pick the colors
- you really should let them pick tho bc their sense of style is impeccable
- owns a pet hedgehog named Walt, after Whitman
- Walt is illegal in NYC but Herbi is a criminal for love
- their fave animals are sharks but those are super illegal
- probably????? the apartment space would probably be a challenge either way
- Jaws sequel apologist
- the shark in Jaws: The Revenge was totally justified ok
- loves animals-gone-wild moves in the vein of Roar or The Birds and confident they'd be able to handle theirself better than all those movie protagonists
- not gonna try it tho
