Today's character is brought to you by a Mad Libs inspired character generation game. I wrote a description for a general alien character, then removed key words. I then asked on our forum thread for someone to provide words appropriate to requested parts of speech. xianyu118 was quick to play, offering the following answers:

1. An object noun ending with the letter "d" or "t": Peat
2. Animal species: Canine.
3. Number between one and nine: Eight
4. Color: Red
5. Plural noun: Strainers
6. Present tense verb: Butchers
7. Verb ending in -ing: Writing
8. Object noun: Bottle
9. Action verb: Think
10. Plural object noun: Sales

And thus were born the very strange, kinda scary Peatons.

Why, thank you! I hoped you would like how it turned out. It was fun to do. And I think I can use these guys. There's something beautiful and creepy about "butchers while writing". :-)

Cool character, and clever generation method. I might have to try it sometime.
