Biography

Roald has always been an energetic individual, and has lately been channeling that energy into sports. Although he's a stocky guy with a pudgy, penguin-like body, he's extremely proud of his athletic prowess and spends most of his time "honing his skills." He wakes up every morning at the crack of dawn to go to the gym, where he swims (although he's not a very good swimmer, since his buoyant body just causes him to float), makes small talk with the front desk guys, and attempts to fit in with the giant, jacked guys in the weight room. Outside of the gym, he considers himself the "strong, silent type" - he often butchers simple phrases and tries to relate everything back to his workout regime, but he displays an impressive amount of motivation and dedication in his personal life and has an impressively big heart. 

Roald's cousin did "well" in Total Drama, and once Roald found out about the show he just had to apply so he could showcase his impressive biceps in a new setting. 

Trivia

  • Roald, similar to a certain few of my past characters, is named after and based around a character of the same name from Animal Crossing.
    • I first decided I'd write this story after drawing human versions of three characters in my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town—Roald, Whitney, and Beardo (Graham)—and realizing I could create a love triangle between them.
  • Roald was created for comic relief, like Puck, but I wanted to give him better characterization than similar characters from my past, hence the plots with Boris and Whitney.
  • He and Whitney were always planned to leave back-to-back in the early merge, but I didn't decide it would be in a double elimination until I incorporated Kelsey's fake elimination.
  • For his relationship with Whitney, I purposely wrote them with over-the-top humor and a questionably short exposition, similar to Total Drama Island's actual couples, to contrast the more drawn-out, will-they-won't-they romantic arc between Graham and Kelsey.
