Thank you, but that still doesn't explain some the more nonsensical one like Wilson he might be a gentlemen if your standard is low, and we don't really know if he really is a scientist, probably not since he bad at it and live in the wood, some of his qoutes are about science stuff but there are way more generic and pun qoutes, and the 2 inventions that he make in the constant are magic wooden thing and wooden thing that make you know more about ocean stuff.

They're short, especially comparatively to other merms

Not by much she's quite big in her child form compared to ingame Merms.

If she would grow up she would probably be bigger and meaner looking than the Merm Warriors.

He is a "Gentleman Scientist", a title that was given to financially independent scientists who didn't have any affiliations to institutions like universities, which is noted in the loading tip lore that tells how he left university. He is a scientist in the sense that tries to find new discoveries and create new things, but he comically fails at trying to do so.

He is not a standard scientist. The German instruction booklet let us know he isn't popular by his fellow scientists. Of course there might be a reason why he lived in the woods but he work! Back then science wasn't branched and inventing was not that fast and maybe Wilson was interested occult stuff to prove his ability (in te origin trailer he looks like he's depressive)

Wig

Wilson, the gentlemen scientist: He does science

Willow, the firestarter: she's a pyromaniac

Wolfgang, the strongman: he stronk

Wendy, the bereaved: bereaved means that you've been deprived of a close friend/family member because they died, wendy lost her sister

Wx-78, the soulless automoton: Wx doesn't have an empathy module (or at least it wasnt active), a synonym for unempathetic is soulless

Wickerbottom, the librarian: she make book

Woodie, the lumberjack: he chop

Wes, the silent: mime, no talk

Maxwell, the puppet master: Used to be the king of the constant, pulling the strings much like a puppeteer would. He also summons shadows to do things for him, like how a puppeteer makes their puppets perform shows for their audiences.

Wigfrid, the perfomance artist: Wigfrid isn't actually her name, it's the name of the valkyrie she's performing as. Back in the real world, she just performed in plays or something idk lol

Webber, the indegestible: a spider tried to eat him but failed, and the two became one

Warly, the culinarian: he cook

Wormwood, the lonesome: not to sure about this one, but im pretty sure its because nothing wanted to be his friend

Wurt, the half-pint: a definition for half-pint is "a small or insignificant person or animal", i wouldnt call wurt insignifcant, but small does make sense

Walter, the fearless: He plays off the trope of the fearless and overly fearful, a perfect example of this is scooby and scrappy doo

Wanda, the time keeper: A timekeeper is an instrument or person that measures the passage of time, and considering wanda is always trying to outrun time, it makes sense that she would keep heavy watch on the passage of time

only dst characters cause frankly idc about the singleplayer characters lol

Because he eats souls? He is cursed, so normal food work with 50% effecivity on him, souls refill his hunger and health at cost of sanity.

He is a robot and therefore has no soul. Automaton means robot.

When he woke up he was alone and tried mimicking animal behavior, but he kept scaring them away instead.

He's too young to comprehend the danger he's in until he feels it and his illusion is shattered.
