Brief History: The Cheshire Cat was an early experiment of Lewis Carroll’s, inspired by the grinning cat-shaped Cheshire cheeses his family sometimes bought. A small glitch in the Fabrication process led to the Cat coming out skeletally skinny, but otherwise healthy. The Cat’s personality proved to be a sarcastic one, and he seemed to take great joy in stumping those around him with obscure riddles and brain-teasers. Lewis, perhaps as a prank, assigned him the role of guide to visitors, a occupation the Cat took to with relish.

Life for the Cheshire Cat generally consisted of teasing visitors, using his invisibility and teleportation abilities to sneak around the park, and lounging in convenient trees. Usually a loner, Cheshire took an odd fondness to Alice Liddell upon meeting her and often consented to play with her (as well as occasionally give her accurate directions). Though he would never admit it to anyone, he worried about her during her time at the asylum and occasionally made use of his absurdly thin frame to sneak into her cell and check up on her. Upon her release from the asylum and return to the city, he encouraged her dreams of becoming a fighter and sparred with her when she was testing out new weapons.

Life continued on as normal for Cheshire until the arrival of one Victor Van Dort. Intrigued by this young man who seemed to be determined to draw every insect in the park, he stalked him invisibly until Victor ran into Alice. With an introduction forced out of him by his favorite person, Cheshire decided that Victor, with his odd love of Inventions despite growing up in the dullest town on earth, was worth keeping an eye on.

And besides, those staring contests the young man kept having with Alice were ever so amusing. . . .
