Not the most interesting colours for a homepage, eh? Well he chose them himself, and as you will soon read Panchatan is All Business. He doesn't even want a page written up about him because he thinks it's silly and doesn't want people he doesn't know learning all about him. I told him that every neopet has a petpage and then forced him to help me design this one as a compromise. I could see him twitching to get back to work after about five minutes of code-editing (credit to the layout goes to Nienkju
), and every few seconds he'd glance at his phone. He's gone back to his table to work now, so I guess he's happy again.
Oh, by the way. I'm Nobaseba. I type slowly because I have big, meaty claws. Also, Panchatan's the oldest, so I figured he should go first, right ;D?
Pancha's the eldest of pentamerone's
neopets, and you can see him to my left exactly as he was first made. He's always been a blue Zafara because the boss has never had lab ray maps or enough cash to paint him. And there's no way in heck that he'd spend that kind of money. He doesn't really talk much about the time before I showed up on the doorstep, because he hates talking about himself, but we agree that he probably came from somewhere poor. Somewhere poor where he had a lot of responsibility, since he's totally okay with being a sort of surrogate-owner and taking care of everyone in his own highly-strung sort of way.
See that sweatervest? That's pretty much his entire wardrobe. He has different versions of it, but he's not adventurous and has absolutely no fashion sense. Miss Boss had to step in and buy him this just so that he didn't walk around in wellington boots and a sundress, or something else utterly silly. He's always been a blue Zafara and doesn't plan on changing any time soon. He thinks that paintbrushes and different coloured pets are all frivolous and have no point, but I disagree! He's just grumpy and doesn't want to be made into a faerie.
That picture to the left is one I took of him the other day for this page. He hates having his picture taken and his 'say cheese' face is always that backhanded, unsure smile. I don't know what he was reading at the time, mainly because when I popped over his shoulder to have a look all the words were way too long. And I'm not a bad reader!
The first thing you'd notice about Panchatan would be how much he works. He likes it, or at least I hope he does, and if he's not reading about stocks he's trawling shops for cheap, resellable items or running across Neopia doing the dailies. If he's separated from his phone for more than a few minutes he gets seriously upset and if we don't find it fast we're looking at one angry kangaroo-bunny-thing. Workaholic is a word I'd use, though I'm sure he'd disagree. He's quite miserly too, and won't spend any money on anything that isn't absolutely necessary. His finances are very carefully kept and apart from investments he's made I don't think I've ever seen him buy anything other than food. It's me who spends it all on wheels and scratchcards (shhhh).
Don't think too poorly of him for that though, there's a lot
of nobility in him. We know he does all this earning to keep us safe, but he just doesn't know when enough's enough. If you get him in a good mood he's the sweetest (if tiredest) thing in the world. He's also a brave little soldier- just the other day he took the blow from a trap in Geraptiku instead of Miss Boss. And he still tried to text with a broken arm :). Basically, he'd be the greatest guy in the world if he'd just calm down every now and then, and we all love him to pieces.
He's definitely the breadwinner, but not only that, he's definitely the team mom too. Of course there's Miss Boss, but as far as us pets go he takes good care of us. While the rest of us all have petpets (which, by the way, he was totally opposed to because he thought he'd have to take care of them when we got bored- more fool him! I love my Walking Carpet) he has no time for an animal. We're keeping our eyes out for a petpet that's easy to take care of and that he'd actually like, but so far no luck. It's a shame, because he could use the company.
