Mope is stubborn and dwells on the past because he just can’t let things go. He over compensates his lack of self-trust with bold statements about how others should live their lives. This causes him to have many awkward confrontations with his homies in which, he usually loses. Afterwards, Mope needs to redress his wounds – alone – as to not rely on anyone else. His appendages take the brunt of the damage because his tummy is very sensitive. He is both pristine but chaotic. Mope is a walking contradiction.
