⁂ legacy lost stat chocolate lab | purchased from alisa ⁂
muriel is named after the character from the arcana, a romance simulator app that is based off tarot cards and the six major arcana figures. muriel’s character isolates himself in the forest after having lived a life of an orphaned gladiator in vesuiva’s colosseum, effectively representing the arcana card the hermit. you can choose to “romance” muriel, leading the player down a path to him discovering his heritage and ending the life of the count who forced him into the fighting rings. despite his rough beginnings, muriel is an incredibly gentle soul who values kindness and the quiet life. although he’s introverted, he warms up to people who see past his aloof facade and get to know him. eventually, he learns to accept himself for who he is— past and all— and sees himself as someone worthy of friendship and love.
after i fell for the character of muriel, i knew right away i wanted a pet to represent him on foopets. so many of my pets are representational honestly, mainly just an homage to favorite characters or things in my life. at first i struggled to find a character that would work for him, because i knew i wanted a lost stat, but a black lab male was already reserved for severus— so now i had to figure something else out. i thought about a black mix, but he wasn’t really a cat kind of guy, so then i thought about chocolate labs. i’ve always loved labs anyways, so the bond would be there, and i settled on it. when i saw alisa was downsizing her pets, and that her orion was for up for offer, i was floored. i asked her about what she was looking for, and she said she’d had offers upwards of 90k. i hadn’t wanted to spend more than 85k, so i felt a bit crushed, but she asked me if i intended on actually buying him if she accepted, and i said yes. she knew he’d be kept in my home forever, and that he’d have a scene and fully coded profile by the end of the week (or asap, tbh, because i’m really awful with this kind of thing). and even though it certainly wasn’t the highest offer she’d gotten, she decided to go with me. and i’m so, so freaking unbelievably happy to have brought muriel home. i’m seriously broke now, though, so please let me mourn my nearly 100k status.
though he was worth it, can’t lie
