Tales, introducing Bothell T. Mole

original Bothell scrap-of-paper sketch

Bothell has a kind and gentle nature, even sappy movies make him cry. Possessed with a sly and understated sense of humor, he may or may not be joking, it's sometimes hard to tell. He believes that he can run faster than those high altitude jets, because when he looks up it seems like they are barely moving. He also thinks the moon is following him. He loves Clementine more than the whole world. He's impatient and will start flapping his hands wildly and blurt out whatever is on his mind if you ignore him for too long. Bothell is deathly allergic to nuts and plasters anything remotely suspect with Mr. Yuk stickers. He hates getting lost, which happens frequently because he gets bored and starts thinking about other things instead of where he's going. He applies salt evenly and methodically to his food before he even tastes it. He is Lucy's brother.

*I can't decide about the glasses, they're kind of cute but he looks a bit stupefied and confused without them. Which is also cute. Lucy thinks she should be the only one who gets glasses. What do you think?

  1. Oh, he needs glasses, of course, but he almost always misplaces them and can't find them again, so you rarely see him with them on.

  2. I wonder if Lucy and Bothell have a sister who wears trifocals.

  4. 'He's impatient and will start flapping his hands wildly and blurt out whatever is on his mind if you ignore him for too long.'

    I can't stop LOLing. It's perfect, and so very true. Also agree with Dale.

    Maybe I should get out of this family before you make a character that's a blogger who can't get a job or lose weight.
