Pet Name: Elvyne
I was born in a forest where I lived for a long time with my big family… you must know that we Elephantes live in clans?... Our clan is a very large family that extends over several generations and we all have a very good memory, the memory of Elephante! I was lucky growing up in a smart, happy, helpful family; I’d say it helped shape my main character traits. My favorite game as a kid was Marco Polo; I spent hours playing it in the water with my many cousins. The trick is to go down deep and wait patiently. Don’t forget to hold your breath! Trunks come in handy for the good ol’ gasp and get away.
Despite growing up with plenty of relatives for company, I wanted to make other friends and explore my surroundings… some places other than the forest I knew. But other children (and adults) content with their lot in life made fun of me. They told me I was too small with too big of dreams... (an Elephante? Small? Compared to whom?!?)
The elders of my clans often told stories and talked about the outside world. Gathered around a cozy fire, our oldest troop members would recount memories passed down from ages ago, when our clan roamed free. They said that our home, our forest, was a true paradise, and that it would be silly to ever leave.
As with all children I’m sure, hearing this made me want to go more! I thought a lot before making my decision. My family was skeptical and sad but gave me their blessing and the gift of autonomy. I will always be grateful.
The time had come; I prepared for my trip. The day before my departure a big feast was organized in my honor. She has the spirit of an adventurer they said. When I told them goodbye, I could not hold back a few tears; they made me promise them that I would come back soon to visit.
My travels across Neopia were some of the best days of my life. I basked in Rainbow Fountain, escaped the Shadow Usul, made friends with the Giant Squid, and won big at Tombola. Meridell ended up being my favorite land (Brightvale a close second!). It’s just so peaceful… and who needs electricity when you’ve got peanut butter scented candles??!
It is there at a ball in Skarl’s castle that I met my owner: petiteluciole!
I was welcomed into her family and spoiled beyond belief (have you ever heard of gourmet foods? Delicious!!). I was painted Royal and given jewels to wear. We plant flowers together as a hobby as well as bake. I wouldn’t trade our life for the world.
Every year, my new family and I take a vacation and visit my clan in our beautiful forest. My older sister, JaJuan, is a bit of a ninny and doesn’t like mud on her heels and bugs in her hair, but I couldn’t care less. There’s no place like home!
