Current Description:

......... bronzed skin glistening in the sun .......

.................. powerful muscles rippling at the slightest movement ........

.... golden locks cascading down around broad shoulders ....

........... a pinnacle of physical perfection ....

At least, that is what you had expected when you heard that Gup was from the
fabled Great Southern Land.  The man standing before you, however, is
definitely not what you had expected.

Strong and agile are two words you would not use to describe him.  Handsome and
elegant are two more.  His hair is unkept, and he appears to be covered in a 
thin layer of dust and grime.  His armour, if it could even be called armour,
looks as if it is about to fall apart.  It appears to have been pitted and
etched many times, and obviously has not been attended to for quite some time.

Most of all, Gup is NOT a cutie!!     Grrrrrr!!!
Gup won't win any beauty contests.
Gup is in perfect health.

Player Provided Information

Gup! Gup the Wagnificent! Gup the shoulderpuppy! Gup! My early TFC would not have been the same without Gup's presence. He was a delight and a joy, who made you grin even when you didn't want to. His heart was broken when his beloved Sylar retired, and after that, we didn't see nearly as much of him.
Kollen gossips (in common), 'my favorite thing about Gup is that every time he is on we start asking him about boomerangs and koala's'.
