Personality: Like most lupes, Casterton is loyal and dedicated. He is passionate about his work, and works intensely hard to ensure that he never lets anyone down. While on the job, Casterton is serious and stern to ensure punctual completion, and a quality job. This is quite on a contrast to his personality while taking a break, or on his days off, where he is often boisterous and silly. Those who know him often remark that his loyalty and love of life are unmatched, which make him the best friend one could have.
Casterton is more than just a random assortment of letters that somehow managed to form a word. Actually, it has a lot of meaning in respects to his design. Casterton's design is based largely on a breed of Australian sheep and cattle dog; the Kelpie. The Kelpie originated from Collies bought over to Australia, with Kelpie being the name of one of the first pups found with the markings that now help to define the Kelpie. This is where Casterton's significance comes in. That original Kelpie was adopted in 1872, from a station near Casterton, Victoria. The town of Casterton is famous for its annual Kelpie muster which includes time trials, high-jump and other competitions. Casterton is a mere tribute to this great breed, and his character is based heavily on all the Kelpies I have both worked with and owned. His name is far more than just a random word.
