Pet Name: GitchiManitou
Behold! I am GitchiManitou: Ghost Krawk, battler, quester, special aide to the Defenders of Neopia. And I am wearing a silly hat.
I do not regret my sweater, pants and shoes as it can get very cold in my ice cave. They protect me when I make raids on the Snowager’s den and battle in the Ice Dome. In fact, were it not for their warmth, I might be forced to hibernate through the long winter months, here, so far from my natural habitat on Krawk Island. No, I do not resent my sweater, pants and shoes.
I do not regret my Krawk Axe Wielder arms bands and axe. They signal who I am and send a warning to any who would dare provoke me. “Is not the axe a toy?”, you may be impertinent enough to ask. And I would reply, “Would you care to find out what I can do with what you call a ‘toy’?” No, these make me feel strong, and I do not resent them.
I do not regret my Battledome trinkets: my Pant Devil Bopper, my Floating Space Faerie Doll. My Battle Thought Bubble accurately reflects to where my consciousness drifts. It comforts me to surround myself with souvenirs from past battles. No, I could not resent the trinkets.
I do not regret the accessories I carry with me everywhere I go. My monocle was a gift from my sister, Cavillave the mutant Draik, given to me as I left the family nest in the Fungus Caves to seek my place in the world. She gave it to me with the instructions; “Focus on what is important, look always for an alternative to fighting.” I assure you that, while I have never backed away from a justified battle, I have never sought one unprovoked. My watch was a gift from Cap’n Threelegs, given to me upon graduation from the Swashbuckling Academy, to remind me that, in his words, “Time is fleetin’ and life be short. Do not hold grudges or regrets; they be the thieves of the time ya have.” I am often asked if the Air Faerie Bubble Necklace strapped around my neck embarrasses me, and I will state now and always that I treasure it. The necklace was a reward from Psellia herself for my role in freeing her from Sloth’s evil entrapment. It signals that I enjoy the protection of a most powerful Faerie, and with my watch and monocle, helps to remind me from where I came. No, I do not resent the accessories I carry.
And yet…the hat…I must confess…I do resent the hat. It is droopy and pointy and ill-fitting. It is decorated with childish stars and it does not add to my appearance as a fearsome warrior. You might well point out that it marks me as a thinker, but do you not see that I lose the advantage of my intellect when it is displayed to my opponents? You might say that it adds to my prestige as it is very valuable, but do you not see that I lose the advantage of my expensive battleset by displaying my worth to my opponents? You might even say that you think it’s cute. And I would bite your face.
No, the hat I do resent. The hat preys on my ego. It is the thief of time of which Cap’n Threelegs warned. I resent the hat. I dare you to knock it off.
