Species: Canid Kobold
Age: 10 years
A small kobold of an offshoot canid species, Sticky has a large and pudgy body, the results of many nights of cooking and sampling treats. His heavy duties of hunting wild animals, chopping wood, and tilling fields, however, have given him a surprising amount of strength and fitness, and squeezing the pudge that covers his body reveals a set of muscles that could do heavy manual work for his size. His fur is short, wiry, and dusty grey, skin covered in many scratches and scars from his previous work, including a large gash on one of his ears.

- Comb Training/Skills/Experience
Sticky's previous home was a small forest tribe of kobolds, driving off most adventurers and most attempts to venture further than their forest via the large amounts of deadly wildlife and dangerous terrain surrounding the forest--most adventurers that tried to enter, and the few kobold scouts that plunged into the forest to find more about the world, never returned. It was said that every time one of the many, many shooting stars left a trail in the sky, another soul had attempted to enter the village and failed.
Sticky acted as the village's alchemist, getting lighter duties of making medicines and salves for the tribe. This let him also focus on the other trait that made him popular--his cooking skills. While he still hunted for his ingredients and chopped wood for his own cooking fires, he managed to nonetheless build a rather fat physique from his frequent taste-testing, getting teased behind his back for it.
One morning, however, the village kobolds awoke to find that Sticky had vanished during the night. While his axe and salve kit, his two most prized possessions, were missing, they were not found anywhere else in the village or immediate surrounding woods, and none of the rest of his house was disturbed. Ruling out the possibility of an animal attack, the only possible conclusion was that another brave kobold had fallen to the danger of the forest, and a small stone cairn was built at his empty house as a memorial. Nobody, including Sticky himself, had seen the red mist that enveloped him during the night's rest.
- Hidden Background Information
The "shooting stars" that the kobolds saw in the sky were actually spaceships crossing by. Sticky's tribe actually lived in an extremely high-tech world, where a single person could crew and fly from star to star, have backup clones of themselves to ward off death, and send messages from planet to planet in the blink of an eye.
Lack of many valuable resources is what kept most away from the planet. The few who did visit often captured the kobold scouts that made it out of the village and saw the landed spaceships and technology left behind, selling them as curiosities to wealthy clientele. On occasion, a broken weapon or drained battery was found by the village, but wasn't comprehended as anything but a curiosity.
