Profile[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Cider considers himself a realist, saying whatever is on his mind with little concern for how others will feel. Even though Cider displays a lack of empathy for other peoples' feelings, he wishes to help others, but his self-doubt prevents him from taking supportive action. His hobbies include abstract painting and poetry.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Cider has blonde hair, a small red hat, purple eyes, and a tanned complexion. His outfit consists of a red scarf, a yellow vest with big sleeves, as well as baggy pants of the same color. Two blue satchels are looped over his shoulders, and a blue cape flows over his back. His choice of shoes is a pair of brown loafers.[1]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Cider started drawing at the age of 2, following in his mother's footsteps. At 10, he held his first private art exhibition, wherein he was showered in praise and called a child prodigy. However, Cider frequently criticized other peoples' art, regardless of how much praise they received. He was once kicked out of a gallery for condemning the art on display. Cider would spend hours in his atelier on his days off, but never had a clear theme in mind, and his brush rarely touched the canvas. More recently, he began teaching his 7-year-old cousin Souffle how to draw. Souffle turned out to have lots of creative potential, but when someone came to purchase one of her works, Cider claimed it was he who made it.[2]

At some point in Cider's life, he and his mother went to an art festival in Shandy Hills. As his mother was focused on her ice sculpture, a blizzard swept through the festival, leaving the attendees stranded and foodless for four days. Cider's mother went to look for help, but did not return, and only her son made it home after rescuers arrived the next day.

Cider and the others in the music room.

Before leaving for camp at the Valencia Beach Seaside School, Cider talked with Cassis, Olive, and Arancia in Will-o'-Wisp Academy's music room. They discussed rumors about students disappearing at Valencia Beach in previous years, though unlike his classmates, Cider was in disbelief. He argued the academy would not allow students to camp there every year if it endangered their lives. Olive attempted to use Ganache's sister Vanilla as proof of the disappearances, as she abandoned Will-o'-Wisp three years ago upon returning from camp. Cider considered going to Ganache for answers, but Cassis doubted he would open up about his family. The four students joined up with the protagonist shortly after, leaving the academy and boarding the magic bus with Cabernet.

On the drive to Valencia Beach, Cider improvised poems about the youthful freedom that was to come during the summer, saying they would be like the children who opened the doors to heaven. Lemon accused Cider of parroting another artist's words, to which he proclaimed his poem was an original work. He spent most of his time at Valencia Beach near the cabins, creating more dramatic poems of the sea and evening sun. At dusk, Cider gathered antiqua coins hidden in the sand, convinced they were currency used by an ancient civilization. Suddenly, creatures called enigmas began swarming Valencia Beach, warping the students away one by one and sending them to another plane called the Light Realm. When Cider woke up in the Light Realm, he found himself with Cassis at Rekcarc Quarry. He attempted to ally with Cassis, until Chocolat cried for help in the distance, so Cassis ran off to look for him. Cider would later team up with Cabernet, Olive, Ganache, and Candy in Ufot Village. When the protagonist and their party approached Ufot Village, they saw Cider and his group walking through the mountains. A zaf lopik enigma leapt in under Equillekrew's orders to send the students to the Dark Realm, warping Cider and the other four out of the Light Realm.

At Spollacs Swamp Edge in the Dark Realm, Ganache killed the zaf lopik and advised his classmates to find Chocolat and Sesame, who were also brought to the Dark Realm moments prior. Having never been to the swamp before, Cider and Candy were skeptical, but Ganache was familiar with the area. He led the others east to Masala Chai Village, where the protagonist and Latte followed. Reaching Masala Chai, Cider opted to wait for Miss Madeleine and the protagonist's party to come rescue them. Ganache, however, told Cider that staying behind would benefit his own plans. Meanwhile, the party talked with Cinnamon, who informed them Ganache's group was heading for the Enigma Forest. To the party's surprise, only Cider stayed in Masala Chai. He reprimanded the others for their overconfidence in facing the enigmas, refusing to go to Enigma Forest, to which Cassis said the students could not sit around and wait for the help of grown-ups any longer. Cassis believed everything happening was predetermined by Principal Biscotti, who had faith in the students, though Cider did not budge. Overhearing a conversation between the students and a resident canin, Cider learned that Cinnamon had supposedly come down with ooze fever. Fearing for her health, Mace took it upon himself to find the curative icy seed in Gelato Cave. Cider watched Mace take a boat to Ice Island, to which the party urged Cider to join them and follow Mace. Refusing to leave the village, Cider found the journey to be too risky, wishing for the party to die like his mother. Cassis tried convincing Cider that unlike he and his mother, the students were strong and did not need to wait for help, but Cider did not listen.

Progressing through Gelato Cave on Ice Island, the party eventually met up with Mace and defeated the hailcrab. After Mace stumbled out of the cave with the icy seed in hand, a dwarf called Quattro Formaggi arrived. He had taken Chocolat hostage earlier and was actually possessed by a Dab Hasnel enigma. Just as Quattro Formaggi unleashed his enigma form, he was struck with a yellow rose spell, revealed to have been cast by Cider. The enigma warped away, then Cassis asked Cider how he was feeling. Cider seemed to have come to terms with his mother's passing, but sensed someone was watching the party from afar. He joined the party, taking the boat back to Masala Chai Village to check on Cinnamon. The group soon uncovered Ginger's ploy to keep Mace away from Cinnamon, so Cinnamon abandoned the village in search of Mace. Cider advised the students to depart as well, and set off for the felin village south of Spollacs Swamp.

Arriving in Tapioca Tea Village, the party heard from the local felins of how ricebirds were blocking routes in the nearby forest, and could only be moved by canin whistling techniques. They entered the house of Musk and Cocoa, who informed them Ganache and his group had passed through the village earlier. Musk also told the students that Ganache's group learned to move black-feathered sparrows from a canin youth, leaving behind a memo for them to read. The party proceeded to Ecir Thicket, reuniting with Nectar whom they previously met in the Light Realm. Musk and Cocoa followed them into the thicket, wherein Musk realized the dodos in Nectar's care were really people cursed by enigmas, and that he had used his fennel to kill them for their medicinal blood. Sesame was present as well, having helped Musk for saving him after the Valencia Beach incident. Once Sesame fled Ecir Thicket, Latte suggested the party return to Musk and find out how to cross Muy Mot Desert. In doing so, they reached Opopmat Cave at the desert's edge and discovered Mace hiding within. As Mace announced his plans to help the Traveling Putties in Osim Village, he explained to them the whistling technique to move sparrows. To the students' surprise, only Cider was able to whistle the correct way, though he admitted it was because he had experience herding chickens in elementary school.

Return to the Kingdom[edit | edit source]

Cider painting memories of his journey.

Cider produced several paintings depicting his adventures at the Seaside School, retelling his story for future generations.[1]

Knights of the Universe[edit | edit source]

Cider and Souffle searching for Vanilla.

In this continuity, Cider and Souffle accompanied their classmates to Eldide Plains, where Vanilla and her brigade where investigating an alien life form dubbed The "Sheep". When Arancia and Cider asked if Souffle could detect Vanilla's voice, Souffle proclaimed she could hear nothing. The group then arrived at The "Sheep"'s crash site, so Cider, Arancia, and Pistachio attacked it with their magic. However, The "Sheep" was barely damaged, and it fired laser beams at most of the group. Souffle emerged from the debris, to Mash and Sorbet's shock, and called upon Kerendu to fight The "Sheep".[3]

Nomenclature[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His favorite food is wakennoshinosu, a Kovomaka sea anemone dish.
  • He and Cabernet dislike the taste of gummy frogs.[4]
  • Cider mentioning his chicken-herding duties contradicts established worldbuilding, as Kovomaka Kingdom does not have elementary, middle, or high school systems. This is further explained in Magical Vacation rumors.[5]
