Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's Fantom Stranger, and I wished upon a star from wouldn't you like to know?. My other imaginary friends include SCAR, LEFOU, LIGUINI. WIGGINS and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: Wilfred Wiggins

Custom title: Highly Recommended Valet
Why'd you pick this character? trying to increase my stable of stars
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: Wiggins's hair is a very ordinary shade of brown. He wears it long enough to tie in a short pigtail, keeping it out of his eyes while working.
Facial description/mood/expressions: Wiggins has a triangular head with a long chin. His pug-like nose turns up. His large eyes and sharp ears give him almost an elvish look. Wiggins's expression is usually vacantly cheerful, though when he is sad, he is mournfully so.
Clothing style: Wiggins's clothes are always neat and tidy, as befits a servant to the wealthy. He wears the usual doublet, breeches, and hose of his century, though nothing very fancy or expensive. Just ordinary, serviceable attire.
Body build: Average in height, Wiggins is very slim but not scrawny. His large hands and prominent Adam's apple give him a gawky look. His movements, however, are not clumsy.

Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
Wiggins's most obvious personality trait is his cheerful attitude. He hardly ever complains about anything, taking whatever life throws his way in stride. This is not an act or merely putting on a brave front; he really does enjoy each day and every circumstance, or nearly so, looking on the bright side of almost everything.
This sunny disposition may make Wiggins appear stupid to others, but he isn't really. He just appreciates what he has, feeling that, if you're alive and kicking, then that's reason enough to be happy.
Any task he does, he will try to find as much pleasure in as possible. He enjoys working with his hands, being busy, and helping others, trying to make them happy, too. If insulted, Wiggins will honestly try to do better to please the other party.
Wiggins tends to see other people as better than they are, not thinking evil of them unless they give him a strong reason to. Although he was an assistant to Ratcliffe, a villain, it was done innocently. Wiggins assumed he was working for a gentleman of good character and only gradually realized his error as he saw more of Ratcliffe's wickedness. Even then, he gave his employer the benefit of the doubt as long as possible, and would be quick to forgive him (or anyone else) if given half a chance.
The 6th child in a brood of eleven, our Wiggins was an undistinguished child. His mild manner and uncomplaining attitude only made the family think he was simple-minded. Like all the children, he was farmed out to work as early as feasible, after receiving a basic education.
Instead of seeking something for the young man within the sphere of his natural talent and inclination for gardening, the family placed Wiggins in a situation in a manor house where his willingness to work hard and improve himself stood him in good stead.
Upon reaching adulthood, he was suddenly let go, along with most of the servants, when the master of the house died. Jobless didn't mean hopeless, not for such a cheerful fellow. He looked about himself and found a nobleman who was seeking a valet. Thanks to an excellent reference from his late master's widow, Wiggins secured the position of servant to one John Ratcliffe. Though he'd never been one before, he performed the duties of a valet quite satisfactorily; and he liked it.
After only a few months in that gentleman's employ, Wiggins found himself on a ship to the New World. Though not what he'd bargained for, he took the journey in stride. All went well at first, though the new land had its dangers. After a week or so, however, Ratcliffe began to show his true colors, attempting to start a war with the natives. When he shot one of his own men, Ratcliffe was disgraced, deposed, and scheduled to be sent back to England in chains. Such a pity...
Once more unemployed, Wiggins had a decision to make. Should he stay on in the New World? Though he liked the place, it hardly seemed that any of these men would have need of a servant. No, a return to England appeared to be his best option. Until he suddenly found himself in another new world...
Wiggins is not an ambitious man. He wants to work and keep busy, wants to be useful, wants to enjoy the situation he's in
Strengths & abilities:
Can cook, clean, mend, pack, iron, bake, polish, straighten, and anything else in that line
Good at gardening, especially topiary work
Decent singing voice
Too trusting, he thinks good of anyone until proven wrong
Easily taken advantage of
Hardtack and gruel
All growing things
Bringing order out of chaos
Finding himself in mortal danger
Evil people, though he more pities than hates them
Untidiness, especially if he can't fix it
Wiggins is not really afraid of anything in particular, until it proves to be dangerous. But he doesn't anticipate danger or fear things that haven't happened yet.
Anything to add?:
I hope I can play him correctly without making him overly stupid, which Wiggins is not.
PAST TENSE ONLY. MUST BE ABOUT THE CHARACTER FOR WHOM YOU ARE APPLYING.
