Winkie Shijuu

Played by Kiki

Winkie Shijuu (a.k.a. insomniacLepitoptera)

[/container] winkie has nearly no short term memory. they're very quiet.. very friendly, though.
if you walk into one of their traps out in the beyond, the likelihood of you getting freed is almost 80%. unless they just want to talk.. then you might never get out of there
but their glowing eyes and wings seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel, for most travellers out in the beyond. the chronic lack of sleep has ruined any past memories they once had, and they're reliant on what little they can grab onto now. which is very easily manipulated, if you're cruel enough to try...

Physical Description

Identifying Characteristics

a very raggedy two-tailed troll with big, amaranth-colored eyes, and horns that resemble antennae. they're not too tall, at about 5'7, and their wings are just enough to let them fly around comfortably. their wings and eyes glow in the dark, and they sometimes act as a beacon for lost travellers/adventurers. their hair is unkempt, and their eyes never blink. they're also extremely pale and underweight, and the bags under their eyes are very prominent

Mental characteristics

Personal history

winkie .. can't remember... winkie doesn't know. winkie should have been dead years ago. winkie hasn't slept in so long. the most winkie gets is a couple of seconds of non-REM sleep. what day was it again?
it was probably wednesday. was it?
who knows.
did i mention winkie should have been dead? winkie hasn't slept in a while... oh , did winkie say that again? (winkie was just a grub when they were diagnosed with a genetic form of fatal insomnia, due to a gene deletion that caused a malformed version of what would be the hypothalamus in humans. however, due to their unusually extended lifespan caused by their blood, it was not fatal.
this has caused certain parts of their brain to be slowly eaten away, controlling memory, sight, sleep, hunger, and feeling.
a troll took them out into the beyond to try and put them out of their misery, but unfortunately, in a cruel twist of fate, the troll ended up getting killed instead by a stray lusus.
this caused winkie to have to fend for themselves, whilst dealing with neurological issues, a lack of vision, and the Alternian sun. luckily, they managed to survive this long through what seems to be pure luck.
or possibly immortality. winkie doesn't know. winkie doesn't want to find out. winkie wants a nap)
