Name: Madam, I'm Adam

Gender: A man, a plan, a canal - Panama

Race: Was it a rat I saw?

Text Color: 07BB70

Biography: They called it the Heap.

It wasn't really anything to look at; just a big pile of trash left over by the Giants long ago. Or so everyone guessed.

Still, there were more than a few valuables in the pile. You could tell they were important very easily by their one common trait: they were all so shiny you could see yourself in them.

Considering how filthy everything else around was, the novelty of being able to see your own face, to figure out what needed cleaning - that had become more valuable than anything, even better than good food. After all, the tribe had long ago learned they could just eat whatever was lying around if it came down to that.

So when Adam was finally old enough to go scrounging in the Heap, he was excited. Thought he might get a piece of shine for himself, rather than having to bargain with his bigger brothers and sisters.

Unfortunately, the only shiny thing he could find was a rock. And it did, indeed, shine; and you could see yourself in it. But it wasn't smooth. You had to work to see anything in it.

Still - it was his now. So he damn well wasn't letting it out of his sight.

He wondered if it might be possible to make the rock into the smoother shines. Maybe the Giants had known how, once. Maybe somewhere in the Heap, their secrets lay buried, waiting for someone to find them.

He wasn't going to find out, though. Not long after getting the rock, Adam vanished.

Description: Adam is a rat. Slightly larger than average, and with very crude clothing; and his people are starting to move on just their hind legs a little more often. But to your average human, he'd just look like a big rat, although one with slightly better hygiene.

Adam is extremely distrustful and possessive, because that's how you survive in his world. There's no real concept of "someone else's property" beyond "things I'm not able to steal". Still, despite all this, he's a curious sort and might go poking his tiny little nose around in places where it's not supposed to go. And if someone actually did him a favor, well, he'd expect they want something in return, and he'd oblige by putting minimal effort into giving it to them.

Weapons and abilities: Being a rat, of course Adam is good at sneaking into small spaces. He's also got a talent for identifying small objects.

The only item he has with him is a small shining rock. It doesn't seem to have any special properties, though he won't let anyone else see it. On the other hand, he might be persuaded to hand it over in exchange for a smoother piece of shine... after all, this one's just a rock.
