Titero is a colorful character, in more ways than one. They were a wandering spirit for awhile, tending to prefer observing humans, until they witnessed a human birthday party for small children. The children were beating a colorful animal-shaped piñata, their joy and excitement obvious. They watched from a safe spot in the tree that the piñata was tied to, and were startled to see that the colorful object cracked in half after a well-placed smack of a stick, releasing piles of candy that were hastily grabbed and traded and shared. Delighted by this concept, Titero began collecting scraps of cloth from various places on his travels, eventually crafting a body of multicolored fabrics that faintly resembled the appearance of the piñata from that day.
As such, Titero makes a habit of stashing candy (and sometimes other strange knick knacks) inside of their vessel and handing these treats out to children and adults of any species. They love the feeling of gratitude, and subsists off of it as their Niche. Their gregarious kindness seemed boundless, until one unfortunate day when a child mistook them for an actual piñata and chased after them with a stick. Now, they're a bit more cautious, and sometimes just leave candy in various places for people to stumble across, instead of giving it to them directly.
The cloth, flimsy frills on the back of Titero's head are usually kept in a kind of rope-bound ponytail, but occasionally—especially when Titero is startled or frightened—they spring up and slip out of the rope, giving them a rather humorous appearance. The rope around their neck was an attempt to appear more piñata-like, though it looks a little more ghastly than they meant for it to. It acts as a sort of tail, wagging when excited and tucking low when frightened, and on occasion, Titero trips over it and ends up momentarily choking their vessel. It doesn't take long for them to fix the issue, but it's embarrassing nonetheless.
