Hi there! My name is Merpeth, and I'm a Gnorbu. I'm so glad that you've taken the time to come visit my page. I hope that you find it interesting and informative.
When it comes to the Gnorbu species, we are generally best known for our spirited sense of humour. Unlike Meercas, who have more of a reputation as pranksters, Gnorbu tend more toward witty remarks, comical stories, and quotable quips. You'll find that there's never a dull moment when a Gnorbu is around, because we're always eager to share a joke or tell a comical tale based on our experiences Neopia.
Interestingly enough, the Gnorbu's greatest source of comedy comes from our keen sense of observation. Gnorbu are excellent listeners, who enjoy hearing a funny story just as much as telling one. We also have a knack for getting a laugh out of everyday events, such as hunting for a bargain at the Trading Post or trying to grab a bite to eat at Kelp.
As long as it's not mean-spirited, a Gnorbu is never above having a good laugh, even if it's at our own expense. For example, it's often pointed out that we Gnorbu aren't exactly the most fleet-footed species in Neopia. In fact, it's even been said that whenever a Gnorbu goes hunting, the number one thing that he's likely to catch is a case of the Sneezles. That's okay, though… we understand that not every Neopian can soar through the sky like a Pteri or sprint as fast as a Poogle Racer. Our gift as Gnorbu is discovering the lighter side of life in Neopia, and it's a gift that we enjoy sharing generously.
In case you were curious, here are my current stats. As you might expect, Gnorbu don't generally have a reputation for being fierce Battledome warriors, like Grarrls or Kougras. Don't be fooled, however; Gnorbu are more than capable of defending ourselves when the need arises!
Age: 2715 hours
Hit Points: 6 / 6
When it comes to personal interests, like most Gnorbu, I enjoy social activities such as browsing through the shops in Neopia Central or enjoying a bite to eat with my closest friends. I've also taken a great interest in reading, with my favourite books usually being (what else?) collections of jokes and funny stories. I think books are great, because they've allowed me to find humour in situations that are outside of my own day-to-day experiences.
Well, I think that about covers everything for now. Thanks again for stopping by to give my Petpage a read. Please feel free to drop in for a visit whenever you like!
