Hardworking | Caring | Friendly
Being raised in a big family, Raff sometimes had to step up and care for his siblings. He didn't mind it and took it as a natural thing. He had been the quieter twin growing up, and people loved his brother just for being himself. Raff had to learn how to be much more friendly to get friends rather than his loud brother. Again, with being in a big family, each had their own chores and Raff was always the first one done with his chores.
Hot Tempered | Shy | Awkward
While not always a big problem with him, when Raff is in a bad mood, he can get very quick to anger. He hates it when he gets like that but it does happen. The other two traits happen because of being the younger and quieter twin. His older brother, Dellmore, did a lot of the talking for him when they were growing up. Raff never learned how to get out of his shell before now. This is his first time getting out of the family and being on his own. He doesn't know how to talk to people and is really awkward when trying to talk like he remembers his brother talking. He's learning, just bear with him.HISTORY
Raff was born with his twin brother when his mother was imprisoned by an evil wizard. They got out of the imprisonment when Raff was about 2 so he doesn't remember much from his time there. His mother took them to a safe house. This safe house was on an island with a farm. He grew up playing in the garden and barn with his adopted grandparents. His little sister was born in this house with the help of his grandmother. When he was just three years old, his mother left the family, heading off to join a traveling carnival.
Though his mother was gone, Raff and his siblings grew up just fine. His adopted family raised him just fine, giving them chores and letting them learn about living on a farm. He loved gathering the eggs and playing with the chickens. When he was five, his mother returned home! The carnival had to go on the downlow as the owners got healthy again, all four of them having bad medical problems. When she came home, she brought a friend. He came as a friend but as the kids saw him, he slowly became dad. Raff was happy to finally have a real family like his adopted did.
Not too long after his mother came back, the carnival started back up and his mother debated going back to the carnival. It was where she felt she fit in most, even if she loved the farm and the work there. She decided to go back with her boyfriend and the kids came along this time too. Raff was a little upset to leave the farm and all the animals but the family got plenty of pets when the moved back to the carnival.
Raff grew up in the carnival, cooking along side his mother in the kitchen of the carnival. He had three mice that he cared for very well. He tended to their rooftop garden with his mother too. Even though it wasn't a huge farm anymore, Raff still stuck to his calling of animal care and gardening. At the carnival, he learned how to juggle, perform puppet shows, and how to run different games and rides.
As he grew into his later teens, Raff decided to leave his family and figure out where he fit into the world. He jumped from farm to farm, none feeling truly right. He went back home to his adopted family and worked there until he heard of a new promising job. He left his little farm on an island for another farm on another island.
-Because his mother was mute, Raff is really good at reading people. Half a conversation with him is watching people's faces and getting hidden meanings behind their words.
-He never is seen without his hat on. His front door is even locked so no one can walk in on him without his hat on... What's under that hat?STORY
He had heard through the grape vine that there was another little island out there with a farm on it looking for help. It seemed like a good place for him to go since it sounded a lot like home already. They were even looking for a farm hand like him, he would be able to work with animals like he wanted to. It was truly a dream come true! He didn't waste much time for trying to get there for the job.RELATIONSHIPS
