The Zookeeper is an Other who embodies the hoarder of animals.
|“||≪mad chattering, cawing, hissing≫||”|
This True Fae is a tall but hunched-over figure wearing a coat of living rats. His face, when taking on a human form, is fat and dirty, with pupil-less eyes; usually, however, it shifts between avian faces. Obsessed with his animals, he captures humans to care for his collection — until such a time that they become bestial enough to join it. The Zookeeper treats all of his collection as precious animals; of course, even precious animals are still animals in his eyes.
Naturally, Beasts of all sorts are a common form of changeling to come from the Zookeeper’s collection, but Darklings and Ogres are not unheard of — the former being those kept in darkness, forced to be nocturnal, and the latter those whose tasks were the most physically onerous.
