My name is Lofty. I have been described over the years as adventurous, brave and cheerful but I am also an avid explorer and treasure seeker. I seek treasure for the fun of the adventure, not because I am greedy. Once the treasure is found, I leave it where it is so that the next pet enjoys themselves just as much as I did in finding the treasure. This is how I became such good friends with the Snowager.
I do rather much enjoy exploring full-time, rather than treasure seeking. I would say that treasure seeking is more of a hobby for me than anything else. My personality is one that could easily hoard items. Thankfully, my lifestyle is not fit for that. I travel much too often to be tied down by items.
I love my family and friends and I have never considered them a burden. Some of them have not been easy to get along with but they have and always will be dear to me. I am protective of my loved ones and will do anything for them. To underestimate me is a big mistake. The ones I am closest to are my younger sister Sweet and my blue Babyca, Trouble.
I am very confident and I rarely back down. I am intelligent in all my dealings and it is rare that I rush headlong into anything. I miss being a Wocky but I love making Mamma happy. I like changing baby stereotypes one pet at a time. I must say that being a baby gives me a few advantages.
Most pets trust me easily. I love making friends. Being an explorer, I have traveled extensively all over Neopia for many years. I have friends everywhere. There are other things that I like, besides the things I have already mentioned.
I don't mind getting down and dirty. I've gotten into some incredible scrapes through my travels! As a Yurble, I love to eat, my favorite food being Double Chocolate Jelly Beans. While others only see my thick fur and rather round build, I have muscles kept firm from running and snowboarding (my favorite activity!). I am incredibly fast and have amazing endurance, meaning that Sweet and Trouble are the only ones in the family who can even keep up with me!
My favorite color is red. It is very bright, cheerful and reminds me of Christmas, my favorite holiday! Everyone is so happy during this holiday and there is much good food to eat. Not to mention that its during winter and winter is my favorite season! There is just so much to love about it like the snow, the the gifts, the family gatherings...
I could go on and on about that but there is still more to tell. My favorite place in all Neopia is Terror Mountain, with home being in second place. I support Terror Mountain in the Altador Cup but, not being competitive, I don't mind that our family officially supports Faerieland in the AC every year. Just because the family doesn't officially support TM doesn't mean my sister and I can't. Sweet and I just make sure that we wear our TM gear and cheer on our team to one day win the cup!
One last thing I'd like to mention. I have an excellent sense of direction. If I've been to a place once, I won't be lost there, again. Though, in my earlier traveling years, getting lost was part of the fun of traveling. I learned to enjoy it because I never knew what would happen to me next!
I don't dream of adventure. I live it.
