Profile[edit | edit source]

Putties are bipedal, floppy gray masses of konjac with beady blue eyes. They are born when putty peas get boiled and mashed, then placed in a mold to cool off.[1] Their grey square bodies flop around when they walk, and are soft enough to repel the sharpest of swords, but can go stale if exposed to sunlight for too long. When they do not have access to water, they use sheer will to keep themselves hydrated.[2] In Japanese, Putties typically end sentences with でぺたん depetan or ぺたこん petakon, a sound effect for flopping over. Their names are also written in a messy hiragana font.

In Magical Vacation, Putties are named after famous philosophers,[3] whereas in Magical Starsign, their names come from various flowers and spices.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

Magical Vacation[edit | edit source]

It is said that long ago, the Traveling Putties' land was attacked by demons, but their bodies repelled the demons' razor-sharp swords. Unfortunately, Osim Village's Putty population would begin to steadily decline. The only remaining Putty, Bachelard, took it upon himself to find putty peas throughout the realms of the universe, hoping to shape them into new Putties. He encountered the party many times across the Light Realm, but did not find any putty peas. He returned to Osim Village depressed, until he was met by Mace, who promised to help him repopulate the village. The party also assisted Bachelard, obtaining every putty pea to make Osim Village flourish once more.[3]

Magical Starsign[edit | edit source]

Several hundreds of years later, another Putty named Cardoon arrived at the Stone Stage in the depths of Shishkebab Cavern on Razen. Finding it a suitable environment for his kin, he tasked the party with gathering putty peas around the Baklava solar system. In doing so, the cavern was eventually filled with newly-made Traveling Putties, who each sang parts of a song retelling the universe's history.[4]
