On my previous post about Meet the Character, I introduced you to the Wig Bag Trio. So today I will expand on one of the characters from it.
World, meet Knit Anele (and Mischief).
The Wig Bag bestowed her with Mischief, and most of her powers are based on dreams and sleep. Anyone want to guess what Mischief does?
Do you maybe wanna count sheep?
Yes indeed! Mischief can “replicate” itself and as soon as Mischief (or any of the replicas) jumps in front of someone that person will fall asleep there and then. This can be toned down, but Mischief isn’t named Mischief because of its innocence. Life isn’t easy with Mischief around.
And to top that off, Knit’s powers mean she can affect the dreams of others. She can choose to give people certain dreams she must craft, maybe to remind them of something, to make them reflect on thigs, etc. And she also is in charge of keeping a record of their adventures.
This is Child Knit. She is a bit of a paradox. The real past Knit lived in a farm most of her life until she moved to the city to study and get a job. So her childhood involved farm animals, and fresh crops, and other settings. However, Child Knit as pictured above, is the paradox. She isn’t exactly part of the story but gets drawn when there are difficult topics to be dealt with.
In this particular depiction, she is wearing The Captain’s coat, which is odd, as they never meet and she shouldn’t have it at hand. (Enter paradox). She has also been drawn firing a gun towards the viewer. All in all, Child Knit represents the loss of innocence and growing up.
And Knit in general has a lot to work through, between trusting, carrying guilt and trying to become the superhero she is meant ot be, it is interesting to see her move around.
And of course, it doesn’t help that she has Mischief ‘helping’.
Until next time and the next character!
