Good ol’ Martin, let’s see..
How I feel about this character: Love him. He’s got such an inspiring character and story. To power through all he has done with his head held high and a smile on his face is something really empowering.
All the people I ship romantically with this character: Well, there can only be one right? Although when I didn’t know about Rose and was first reading Mossflower, I though he might be ok with Columbine if Gonff hadn’t ‘gotten’ there first.
My platonic OTP for this character: Again, aside from the obvious (Gonff of course) If he had stayed in Noonvale I think he would’ve been pretty big-brotherly to Brome, as well as Keyla and Tullgrew. I can see him being like a foster-son to Barkjon. But as of Mossflower, Columbine, Bella, Skipper, Amber, Germaine and Vurg.
My unpopular opinion about this character: Like you said, small fandom, so not a lot of opinions to work off in the first place. None really.
One thing I wish had happened with this character in canon: I wish he had said goodbye properly to his friends in Noonvale, and not just the ones in the tree-house. Keyla, Tullgrew, Barkjon, etc.
