The idea of Clam's (Camp Lazlo) origin came up a few days ago and I decided to write it down
I'm probably not the only one who wondered if he's mixed or how his parents look like. ^^
I personally am pretty sure that he is mixed. When I searched for his race last week, I have made some new discoveries:
We know that Clam is a rhino (you don't say! xD), but which race exactly? By the look of him he would have to be a white rhinoceros. There's only one problem: It's the largest rhino type and he's far to small for it. xD
And while looking at the other rhino types, I found something very matching there: A species named sumatran rhinoceros, which is the littlest rhinoceros species.
It's really fun, because my OC Chelsea, which is Clam's elder sister, shares one important thing with this kind of species. Her coloring is actually the same as that of the Sumatran rhinoceros. What an amazing coincidence! ^^
And that is how it came that I noticed how perfect this constellation is! I imagined it like that:
Clam's father is very tall/large (as is suitable for a white rhinoceros ) and his mother very small, she's a sumatran rhinoceros. So their children are both mixed.
Clam got his father's semblance (mainly), but his mother's shortness (poor Clam! xD) and Chelsea mainly her mother's semblance, but she also inherited some genes of her father, with the result that her coloring is a shade lighter than normal.
I get around to his parents characters. ^^
We didn't get to know much about the characters parents in Camp Lazlo. Related to Clam I can only think of two things: parents day and that his mother called him when he was at Camp That must mean that she does care about him.
So I think that she's this motherly kind of person, caring and stuff.
We don't know anything about Clam's father, except for the fact that he showed his son to make mustard xD
I think that he's also a strong relationship to his family and that he is kind of gently I just can't imagine that his father is that sort of guy who shouts the house down. xD
What an odd family! Especially because of Clam's autism. ^^ They sure had some problems with him. We saw how furious he can be. xD *imagining Clam, biting his class mates* XD
I think they were a normal middle-class family, until his parents establish their company (all part of my imagined story, don't wonder! xD). I'm sure they still love their kids, but they simply don't have much time to show it.
Hmm... should I name his parents...? Don't know yet.
