Today we’d like to tell you about one more character, the one who lives in the wagon, considers it his own home and would never exchange it for any riches. Meet – The Brownie from the Wagon
What makes this character really interesting is not just his biography, but the fact that there are several of them.
- How could this be? – you may ask.
- Very simple.
His appearance and biography was invented not by our artists, but by the students of our school of computer graphics. The elaboration of a character was one of the tests that the students had to pass in the course of studies. In general, the task was as follows:
To invent a character
To tell his story without missing any details
To show the character from different sides
So the test is passed, the marks are given, let’s look what came out of it.

This brownie comes from a family of skilled tailors. When his masters were overwhelmed with work, the brownie furtively helped them and the work progressed. But a great fire destroyed everything and the bogie set off to look for a new home. He was picked by wandering gypsies. At first the brownie planned to get to a big city, but he was amazed by the variety and quality of fabric in gypsies’ carts and decided to stay. Gypsies being sharp-witted people gave the brownie not only shelter and food, but a job as well- he sewed and repaired clothes for them.
The brownie has his own nature as well. Occasionally he makes his masters some woven presents, but when somebody puts him out of temper, he can play pranks: sew sleeves to different clothes, stitch a hat to pants, or even take all threads out of clothes.

Georgie is a magic brownie. He has magic hair and mustache. Why are they magic? According to a legend he is a great handyman! His mustache is as strong as a string, with its help he can sew or fix anything. His big feet just like another pair of hands help him to speed the work. His ears are real locators, so he hears the approaching danger from afar.

A long time ago out of dust and small rubbish a brownie was born behind an old stove. He was born old, with a magnificent beard and soft wrinkles. The stove gave him the name Grofo. While the brownie was growing up, the stove was telling him stories about people’s life. Finally when little brownie came out from behind the stove and saw people he loved them immediately with all his heart. The time has come for the stove to go, dying she told the brownie about the magic cap which gave its owner great power, faith, hope and even answers to all questions. Grofo didn’t believe her. “How can it be?? People must find strength in their family!” So Grofo went to look for a new home. Once he saved a cricket which was supposed to become frog’s dinner. The cricket became his close friend. Together they looked for houses where sorrow lived. As soon as Grofo and the cricket gave the hosts strength and hope to live on they left the house. Only the cricket knew where the brownie found hope looking at his patched cap.
9. Lopushansky Alexandr
The main occupation of the Flame is to look after the household. Sometimes he can assume his master’s appearance so that animals and birds were not afraid of him. He is a miser; all kinds of expenses make him very angry. He often grumbles, but in his heart he is caring and kind.
Overgrown with hair the Flame helps his masters in the house, he can warn of impending disaster, but he can also misbehave. He notices every little thing, strives to keep everything in order and at hand, he would often help a hard-working person and correct his mistake if needed.
10. Nechitaylo Irina
This is Palyulya. He has a rough appearance and a tender heart. Palyulya always wanted to be an ordinary human, but his height was less than an inch. The family, where Palyulya lived, truly loved him, however a brownie could never become what is called “a family member”. As a result, God’s wrath descended upon him. Palyulya was sent to roam. This way he met Gypsies. Palyulya was taciturn, he was afraid of strangers, so he prowled in the bushes most of the time where he met the talker Bumblebee. Quite a strange couple of swore friends, I must say. Gypsies used to say that Palyulya would bring them happiness, like no family had ever been given by a brownie.
