This post will elaborate more on the world of Sies. We will look at some of the minor characters who figure into the story and provide a little background on them. First up is the Ergonoid Spearsman, a guardian of a nomadic group of people who shun all outsiders, happy and angry alike. Ergonoids are an aquatic people spending half their lives on land and half their lives in the sea. They make their temples at a depth of fifty meters which they free-dive to in order to observe their rituals. A master of the trident and other polearms, the Ergonoid Spearsman can easily dispatch a foe with his weapon on land and in water. On the spectrum of happy and angry, the Ergonoids are neutral. The Ergonoid Spearsman’s emoticon is B|.
Salazar the Lonely Hermit was once a happy lord whose lands consistently brought plentiful harvests. One day the Angries blighted his lands and Salazar lost his favorite flowers. Although the Happies restored his land to its original bountiful nature, Salazar still mourned his favorite flowers that were lost. Unable to become happy again, Salazar retreated into the mountains to mope in solitude. On moonlit nights, he emerges from his cave to cry soulfully while he watches the night sky. Salazar was designed by Ryan Herriman, one of the first Siesians. The emoticon of Salazar is u_u.
Dub Dub the Warrior of the Dance is an ally of the Happies. His power is such that he never tires of dancing, which he uses to lure his enemies into dance competitions that rage for days until they inevitably collapse of exhaustion. Dub Dub was once a vain practitioner of the dance, seeking only to advance his own reputation. Flambytoes showed him the error of his ways and from then on, Dub Dub has been an upright individual. His emoticon is naturally :P.
King Giffle the Sad Monarch is ruler of a large realm yet still he is constantly plagued by the belief that his countrymen secretly hate him. Living in fear of being disliked, he never makes any decrees nor does he arbitrate in any matters. Instead, King Giffle stays holed up in his castle, sulking and wondering why people hate him. In truth, his subjects do not hate him and think he is a considerate if ineffective king. In some aspects, King Giffle could be compared to Ukhed because of his brooding. The difference however is that Ukhed blames others for his predicament while King Giffle is always introspective. The emoticon of King Giffle is :<.
Wumbley the Captain of the Indifferent Pirates is not a seeker of adventure, though he likes such monikers. He leads his band of pirates from island to island with the constant promise of treasure and mischief-making. Every time the opportunity arises, however, Captain Wumbley decides to take a nap instead. Usually his men decide to go off without him, which Wumbley does not mind as much as he pretends to. Fiercely independent but without motivation, Captain Wumbley and his pirates could be considered allies of the Angries but they are far too undependable. His emoticon is :l.
Roarlor the Hideous Swamp Creature lives in a swamp close to the high seas. Although he is a solitary creature, Roarlor is nonetheless a kind being and a friend of the Happies. He is also quite powerful, especially in the swamp where he camouflages with the green plant matter. On rare occasion, Roarlor will leave the swamp to help his allies. When he does, his appearance usually scares the denizens of the land of Sies. He has even caught Mooflor the Scary off-guard and scared him. As scaring people is never Roarlor’s intention, he mostly stays in the peace and comfort of his own swamp. Roarlor was designed Ryan Herriman. His emoticon is 87.
