Grodin shows up a lot in my school notebooks. He’s a mutated snail-creature. He doesn’t have much of a backstory, but I guess I could make one up: he was a snail who slurped up some radioactive junk. Then he got a job at a glue factory. That’s about all so far. He does pretty well there, so there isn’t much conflict. The sunglasses are totally cosmetic—his eyes are actually at the top of the stalks on his head.
