.: Facts :.1.
Wally comes from an average family background of little note and was born in the town of Ramdon on May 8th – his official age is 21.2.
Although Wally is only a little guy with no muscle on him, his greatest strength is probably his eloquent tongue. The weasel is a natural sycophant, but with the best interests of his employer at heart. He has a strong sense of loyalty.3.
By no means independent, Wally’s only ambition was to go into service for someone who needed somebody hardworking and conscientious. Since the local Labour Exchange didn’t have those sorts of jobs going, he was unemployed for quite some time.4.
Wally’s first meeting with Retsubnad was a purely chance encounter. As the wizard-hare was carrying wood back to his castle (an abandoned place, which he was renovating at the time with a view to taking possession), the weasel was impressed by Retsy’s costume and strong demeanour and offered to work for him. Retsy, equally surprised at meeting somebody who actually wanted to associate himself with him, hired him on the spot.5.
Since coming into Retsubnad’s employ, Wally proved himself a character of many hidden talents. Besides being hardworking in all his regular duties of cleaning and dusting and generally keeping the place running, the weasel is also a very good cook and is quite good with a needle and thread if there are any robes (or other clothes) in need of mending.6.
Initially serving Retsubnad out of a simple desire to be useful to somebody, Wally has come to know the wizard-hare more and more over the years he’s served him. In his own quiet way, his feelings have developed more into a true sense of respect and loyalty towards his Master, who despite his outwardly villainous ways, has a hidden goodness underneath. Although their relationship remains officially on a Master-servant basis, they have in a way become fast friends.7.
Wally’s relationship with Retsy’s gryphon, Thoronraw, started off a little rocky. The weasel suspected that the then-newcomer to Retsy’s castle would begin to supplant him as the Master’s favourite and that made him jealous. Over time, though, the pair reached an understanding and realised that they’re both important to Retsy, but in their own unique ways. Although Wally may sometimes resent Thoronraw’s more prideful traits, he would never wish any harm on him.8.
Wally’s loyal service to his Master has proved him a trustworthy worker. Having started out as a general dogsbody, cooking and cleaning and the like, he has gain greater positions of trust, including serving the food and drink, valet service (assisting Retsy with his choice of clothes) and even holding his bath towel.
.: Other News :.
It’s looking like things are finally starting to happen for me here.
After several years of being unemployed, apart from the odd short-term contracts or various waste-of-time “getting back into work” government schemes, something has finally turned up!
Although at this time, I’m waiting on agreement about start-date, I could soon be working as a Data Officer for the Royal Papworth NHS Foundation within a couple of weeks!
Finally, I’ll be getting a full-time job! I just hope it all works out. I’m naturally feeling nervous… (prayer or something would be appreciated)
.: Commissions :.
In the meantime, I’d like to point out that Commissions are still open from me! For further details, please click the image to link to my page here:
