Bio:

Thurston is a friendly & generous mouse, but not out of pure goodness. He plies his generosity as a way of winning people over; he rarely has the resources to buy many drinks, so the first is usually the only one he can buy. He will also share the last swallow in his canteen with a thirsty mouse, often at the expense of his own thirst; another reason for his “Thirsty” nickname. But everytime he shares a drink with a thirsty mouse he is sure to remind that mouse that it was Thurston the Poet who had been so generous. In his soul, Thurston feels small & unimportant, the second son of a simple stonemason from a provincial town. He has a gift of gab but little else to share, but he wants to be important, more so than just being a good & reliable scout for the Guard. He is not particularly strong, fast, or courageous, but he has a talent for reciting poetry & believes this talent will lead him to a special place of fame among the mice of the Territories.
