Racoon Dog en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccoon_…Characteristic:
level headed and charming, but can be huge dork (especially while tasting food). He's a modest and honest guy, but is outspoken in his own way and he's fairly easy to get along with. He loves making others smile, and hearing people's stories. He's the curious type, so you'll see him exploring Hemlock most days, and others he might be fishing or surfing in the morning. He gets lost in thought when he's alone. He wont even realize who's beside him until he snaps out of it.History:
Jheru grew up in the islands, with his rather laid-back uncle, who was a surfing champ (now retired) and also ran his own cafe, which jheru would tag along and learned from him. He was well on his way to becoming a fantasitc chef (making sweets mostly) BUT because he wasnt old enough to work, jheru would run errands for his uncle which he was happy to do cause it meant a little exploring in the forest/jungle. He would meet many people, and he became well knowned around the islands, he would pick rare flowers, and give them to the shop owners once in awhile, which attracted a visitor.
An otter traveller, who was on a 2 week stay at the island studying the plants/environment, saw these flowers and wanted very much to meet the boy who picked these. He soon caught up with the pup and wanted to know how he got these, as well as other flowers he had been carrying. Jheru could already tell he wasnt from around here. Siezing this oppurtunity, Jheru cut a deal with him. If he showed him around, then the otter would tell him stories about the world. The otter (surprised) quickly agreed and soon they became friends. As their adventures continued, Jheru became more curious about the outside world, and wanted to work towards a brighter future that was his own. The otter even introduced him to music. The day came when the otter had to leave, and as thanks, the otter presented him with his own hand crafted ukulele, and wished him all the luck to his future. He rushed home and told his uncle about his friend, inspired to make his own way. From the day he was old enough, Jheru worked at his uncle's cafe, saving up.
The day came when he decided to move out (which most of the locals came to see him off.) With the money he had saved up, he decided to go traveling and maybe find a place where he could settle. Years passed and Jheru feels that he's finally found it.
