Contest Entry - Unwelcome

This homeless grem chooses a life of solitude in fear of being rejected and hurt, the past memories of his abusive owner keeping him in constant vigilance. He roams the streets restlessly each day and night, staying in the shadows and avoiding being seen as much as possible while scavenging for food.

By the people who do spot him, he gets either pity or frowns but is rarely approached. To the locals, he is mostly just an unclean, unwelcome sight who makes a mess with the trashcans and is suspected to steal food whenever he gets the chance.

I have never felt more emotionally invested in a grem before
Arvata's avatar
Omg ;v; Thank you! *Pets your heart*

Bless Bless, he just has so much personality and ahhh if he did not run from everything my grem Travis would so try giving him food! :,0
Arvata's avatar
Aww bless your Travis ;v; Even if he's not likely to trust anyone easily, Stryder would remember good deeds done to him for sure due to not experiencing very many. There's been a few kindhearted people intentionally leaving out or "forgetting" food so that he can have it, and sometimes he catches onto their kind intentions. They puzzle him more than anything, but he appreciates the meal ;v;
SmilingShad0w's avatar
Then Travis will 110% "accidently" leave out a lot of food knowing my boy x3, I demand happiness for Stryder!
Arvata's avatar
XD Travis has a heart of gold. And a plate full of food! Stryder will love ;v; Any scrap of meat is a livesaver to him.

Yea haven't worked out his full story yet but Travis is the nicest character I own and has a super sad story :,)
Arvata's avatar
Oh man ; ; How come the nicest characters always get the saddest stories XD Poor them!

Nooo! 


Hey I live in the city! Am I allowed to put out some food and pretend I don't see him (and let him take it)? ; ^ ;
Arvata's avatar
He'd love that for sure! Food can be hard to come by for him so he isn't picky at all ; ;

*Brings him all the healthy foods, and also dried foods so he can hoard and eat later* ; ^ ;
Arvata's avatar
Yes gooddd, he could really use that! Will probably hoard what he doesn't chew down in one go in some temporary hideout ;v;

Wonderful!!^^ I feel like if I had an urban char in this universe, I would be working at shelters or soup kitchens. Or undercover sneak food out!^^

Dunno if that would get people in trouble. :o
Arvata's avatar
Ahh that's such a nice thing to do ; ; It would probably help a lot of people!
I believe the universe is somewhat similar to ours in that there are many people still in need of help ;v; So that'd be a great occupation for sure!
