Oh Spinach, you underloved poor little aquatic 'deviv. This guy....this guy has taken me so long to figure out what I needed it to be. It started out insane and violent. Then it was just insane, then it wasn't insane but more of a derpy spaced out teen. Then it was destructive again, but it just never clicked for me. I wanted to include it in more but it was the one unit of the crew I couldn't get the right feel for. Spinach is part of Crew 52, but I bet that a lot of you don't even know that from how little I draw it.
Well, I updated its design (Although the update is tiny) I basically added the things on its face and made the bow it wears bigger. Also omitted the harness thing. The biggest change is its personality. So! Here's a basic run down of its personality. I considered making it a new ref, but since this was literally the only visual changes I decided it'd be impractical.
Name: Lowfat Spinach Stuffed Fishsticks (Spinach) Also sometimes referred to as "Eki" (eh-key)
Background: Did you know you can be too good at being a 'deviv for Qwuedeviv society? It may seem hard to believe, but it actually can and does happen--although rare. Spinach was a little too enthusiastic about world domination and ruining everything. A little maniacally. So Qwuedeviv leadership decided it was best to send it off to some reconditioning classes. The classes were a success, and Spinach is considered fully rehabilitated and acceptable in Qwuedeviv society now, however those who have to deal with it directly may have a slightly different opinion on the matter.
Personality: Spinach is helpful, to a fault, it always wants to be in the center of whatever its crew is doing, but unlike Smiley, this isn't because it wants attention. It just wants to show enthusiasm and team support for whatever their plans may be. The other Qwuedeviv of Crew 52 think Spinach is a little...well...crazy. Spinach is something of the team cheerleader, always backing up the others' ideas and offering encouragement and support whether its warranted or not. Spinach also works near tirelessly to keep the crew from fighting with each other, trying rather to teach them some of the techniques it learned in its classes for all to get along. Quite contrary to how it used to be, Spinach will generally suggests diplomatic ideas that don't involve destroying everything. It tries to teach Crew 52 to be positive instead of negative and direct their energy towards more productive things--it's opinions usually go unheard. It seems almost afraid of the mention of violence or cruelty. Sometimes it will cower away, other times the displeasure is less obvious. Whenever it feels this way it tries yet even harder to repeat what it has learned back to itself--although usually out loud. Sometimes that isn't enough and it finds itself reverting back to its former life. Whenever that happens, afterwards Spinach is always extremely apologetic and whines about what a failure it is, it usually bounces back pretty quick though, as dwelling on negative emotions is forbidden...apparently....what kind of reconditioning classes WERE those, anyway?
-Spinach usually looks like it's about to snap and lose its mind.
-It constantly has a nervous laugh to whatever it is saying.
-The sensitive feelers on its head make it look a bit insane because its always twitching or jumping, suspecting that something may be sneaking up on it.
-Spinach most often follows DN around, as the quiet 'deviv is one of the few who seem to pay attention to what it says without interrupting or booting it out.
-DN is also the calmest and therefore Spinach has less of a risk of losing its cool.
-Despite the fact that the other Qwuedeviv constantly laugh at its giant bow, Spinach insists that it was a gift of human hospitality and thus it would be rude not to wear it.
