ProfileWorcestershire is a young owl creature (specifically, a Long-eared Owl) working for the Condiment Crew. His age is, despite telling everyone who ever asked him 20, 15. Though, because of his rather young age, he has a smaller stature, making him more agile and flexible. This makes him rather effective in thievery, as he can use this agility in conjunction with his wings as a way of breaking & entering, as well as a way to make a quick escape. And, due to his wings, allowing him to get to high places, and his owl anatomy, granting him night vision, he can be used effectively as a nighttime lookout. However, outside of the Condiment Crew, he is weak. And, due to being a teenager, he can tend to lend himself to bad situations. While these situations cause him personal trouble, it doesn’t lead to trouble for the crew as whole often times.
Worcestershire is covered in feathers, with the only exceptions being his bright yellow talons. His feathers possess a dark brown coloration, with a line of grey on the edge of each. These feathers droop on his body, covering most of his face. Though, there is a circle of black around where his eyes are located.
Despite his breed, Worcestershire's ears are not long. In fact, they are anything but long, barely being visible if you really tried to look for them. It's unknown why, but Worcestershire's guess is a birth defect.
His arms are one of the only parts of his body where his feathers aren’t drooping downwards. Instead, he has his feathers sleeked up his arms, lying flatly. These feathers are in much better condition than the rest of his body’s feathers, signifying he takes significant care of them.
His feathers can fall under the same exception as his arms, with the feathers on it being sleeked up his wings. The feathers on his wings contrast with the rest of feathers as they do not have the streak of black along the edge. Instead, they are completely dark-brown.
While his heavy, drooping feathers give the illusion that he has the average body mass of a 15-year-old male, but in reality, he is rather scrawny, with his ribcage being visible. His skin is very weak, being easily punctured and torn.
If someone were to, for some stupid reason, remove all of his feathers, they would see that his skin is a fleshy pink. His skin is extremely flexible, yet this ability isn’t commonly shown, as it tears off easily if force it exerted onto it. His wings are very small, about 1/8 of his normal wingspan. His eyes are a dark brown that matches well with his feather color
Worcestershire, being a teenager, does not often like to show his true emotions. He often stays away from crowds, preferring to stay around empty places. He keeps himself as small as possible, usually with wings folded in and arms crossed.
Worcestershire tries to act edgy and intimidating, making mean, distasteful expressions to anyone that even tries to approach him. If anyone does approach him, he will make quite death threats to them, and when someone tries to converse with him, he’ll reach the brim of actually shouting, and even start pushing people away.
He tries to act tough, saying that most things that have happened to him in the past haven’t even phased him. However, in reality, he cracks very easily under pressure, knees buckling under him and breaking down into tears. He tries to control this so that it only happens when he’s in a private area.
If you manage to crack his shell of hatred, it turns out he’s actually a really sweet boy, almost like a kid. He wants to be social, wants to make friends, but he knows that he can’t really do that with anyone but the crew. He knows that anyone can be the next target, so, instead of having to endure friends get constantly destroyed, he simply doesn’t make friends.
He becomes loyal and obedient to anyone who manages to break through his shell. He will check on them daily, either through phone or in person, despite whatever is going on with the crew. He will do his best to try and provide them physical or emotional support.
Before the crew
Worcestershire was born into a life of crime to 2 anthropomorphic bird creatures. His parents had minimum wage jobs, and couldn’t afford to pay expenses for both of themselves and a child, so they resorted to crime. With his father becoming a mugger, attacking people and taking their money, using brute force alone, and his mother becoming a thief, breaking into places and stealing things.
However, it all went downhill one day. After the royal guard had gotten leads from a victim of one of his dad's muggings, and raided the home. The broke down the doors, where the small child named Worcestershire, who was about 8 years old, was sitting at the front door, cowering in fear. The scanned through the home until they found the two parents, who peacefully submitted to arrest. They are currently serving a 10 year prison sentence with no visitations allowed.
After this ordeal, Worcestershire was stuck without a home to go to, no one willing to adopt the child of 2 criminals. So, he was put into a foster home. However, the conditions were deplorable. He was neglected in favor of children that had been there longer, and were from purer backgrounds, he was not only given the smallest room in the home, but also the filthiest. The entire house was constantly filthy, and no matter how many times he was forced to clean it, it would always return to it’s filthy state. He was barely given enough food to keep himself from starving.
He stayed in this foster hell (he will absolutely refuse to call this place or any other foster home/orphanage a ‘home) until he was 11, in which he finally snapped. He took any belongings of anyone in the house, evading the awakening of anyone in the house using his flight, and running, fleeing into Snowdin, and eventually Snowdin forest. However, despite his sudden disappearance, the foster family only called in reports of a robbery, completely ignoring the fact that he was missing. This was recognized by the Royal guard as neglectful, and they were removed from the foster care system.
He wandered through Snowdin, robbing and pickpocketing, until he became part of the Royal Guard’s wanted list. He hide away, stocking up on food. Lucky, his owl heritage allowed him to eat animals like rodents and rabbits, letting him survive much longer, and his night vision gave him an extreme advantage against royal guards during the night, allowing him to escape many encounters.
Joining the Crew
He found about the Condiment Crew at the age of 12 during an encounter with Royal guards during the night. They were conversing to themselves about whether or not he was actually part of the crew, and whether he could help find them. He fled, and started looking around to try and find out where this ‘Condiment Crew’ was.
After extensive searching, he found the crew. He quickly asked to join, wanting to be secure in his business of thievery, and was accepted. He tried to stay disconnected from the crew, so if it were to ever be caught and captured, he could escape without being caught.
Through the 3 years being part of the condiment crew, he’s grown to find the crew more as a family then a crew of criminals. He has grown to like some more than others, but still loves all members (In a completely platonic way… Only exception would probably be Nutella.)
((NOTE: I will be putting the whole of the Condiment Crew here. If you don’t want your Condiment Crew character to have relations with him, go ahead and tell me in either my PMs in chat, my wall, or the comments, preferred in that order.))
When face-to-face with any Condiment Crew member, Worcestershire will shows his utmost respect for her. However, when in his own company, he will rant to himself about how bad of a leader he thinks Mayonnaise is. He believes that she ‘Doesn’t do any actual leading!’ And ‘All she does is steal stuff! She should be in the same ranks as the rest of us!’
Unlike with Mayonnaise, Worcestershire has actual respect for Salt, believing that she is the true leader of the Condiment Crew. He will blindly follow Salt’s orders, sometimes obeying her orders rather than Mayonnaise.
While Worcestershire dislikes being around Sriracha, he must applaud to Sriracha’s handy work with arson. Though, he dislikes his lack of hesitation to kill babies, finding them too pure and young to take them out of this world.
Worcestershire enjoys Peppers company, finding it relaxing to be around someone that’s nice enough to actually listen when he talks. Not much else. He just really enjoys her company.
Worcestershire pities Salsa. He thinks that being the role of ‘live bait’ is inhumane and horrible, and whoever made the choice to make him the ‘live bait’ should be kicked from the group and handed over to the royal guard.
Eh. Really, he doesn’t exactly hate her, just… Doesn’t enjoy being in her company too much. He secretly agrees with her disobedience to Mayonnaise, but despises when she disobeys Salt.
He finds Splenda’s shape-shifting antics hilarious, being one of the only things that can get him in a good mood instantly. Outside of these antics, their relations are much over a casual conversation.
He thinks Vinegar’s backstory is sad, yet despises the fact that he came from a rich background. He thinks it’s ridiculous how, as he states, ‘Came from an idiot-proof background, and still failed!’ This only makes him more confused at the fact that he’s seemingly a genius.
He thinks of Honey as a sister, finding her adorable and charming.
He used to be somewhat suspicious of Butter, but he has shaken the suspicion off since they first met. Worcestershire finds Butter’s attempts of womanizing funny. Not because they’re actually funny, but more because they’re pathetic. (Though, in all honesty, he couldn’t do much better)
Worcestershire likes Sweet's charismatic nature, unknowing to her true reasons of being in the Crew, or even of her more sadistic side. However, his opinion's on Sour are much like his opinion's towards Guacamole:Too big of an idiot for what he's worth.
He doesn’t really have that much of an opinion on Tahini. They haven’t talked all that much. Also, he finds his fashion sense rather dapper.
While he hasn’t talked to Nutella too much, he has some kind of strange fixation with her. Well, more accurately, with her blood. He is, in ways, enticed by it. Wishing to taste it himself. He is aware that it’s used to brainwash people into her cult. But, he only finds this more enticing.
While he thinks that Guacamole is a bit too stupid for what he’s worth, he still finds it reassuring that there is someone that is willing to help him out in tight situations or bad encounters.
Peanut butter & Jelly
He doesn’t exactly hate him. He commends him for his work because, as he says, ‘It’s gotta be difficult the make something explode. How does that even work?’ Yet, other than this, he just has a very neutral opinion about him.
He sees ketchup as a lying, backstabbing, traitorous, son of a bitch.
He thinks Sugar is also adorable, and wishes she wasn’t kicked from the crew. Yet, he can admit that she was rather useless.
He believes he does a much better job as lookout than Barbecue Sauce. Not much else to say.
Worcestershire likes Gulkand... Like, a lot. He enjoys Gulkand's oddball personality and enjoys being around him... To the point that it could be considered somewhat of a crush.
Worcestershire feels as neutral towards Saffron as neutral can get... That is to say, he treats him like any other stranger. And that is to say, like a dick.
Worcestershire feels some bit of sympathy towards Ranch. That's... About all there is. Other than that, he doesn't interact with him much.
Worcestershire absolutely despises Aduhey's mere existence, simply due to the fact that he exposed his family to the Royal Guard. Worcestershire will attack Aduhey on sight with relentlessness, no matter the situation at all.

Worcestershire will only engage in a battle with you in you interact with him in the overworld 3 times.
Check, talk, hug, comfort
While his shell of hatred is a hard one to crack, it's not impossible. You simply talk to him 5 times. Once this is done, he'll collapse to his knees and start crying. At this point, he can be spared. However, if you want to achieve his pacifist yellow text, you have to comfort, then hug him. This will cause him to befriend you.
Due to being an anthropomorphic owl, he does have wings. His wing span is around 6 feet. This gives him very effective flying power.
Due to, once again, his owl anatomy, he has very effective night vision, making him an effective lookout.
He has talons, though not to sharp. They can be used to grab things, and are rather resilient. Meaning, he can use them as a way of grabbing attacks and disarming opponents.

- While Worcestershire does have night vision, he is also color blind.
- He is anal retentive when it comes to how people pronounce his name
- He tries to claim he's 'As straight as a board!' However, while he is somewhat heterosexual, he is bordering on... Well, every sexuality but asexual. He's quite confused about it, actually.
- While he doesn't know he has it, Worcestershire does have quite the potent magical ability, inherited from his father. His magic comes in a similar form as blue magic, yet only used in a way to repulse enemies rather than throw them any direction.
