Eeebs Cottonpaw Thistlewhiskers (more frequently known as Eeebs) is a curious kitten who entered an abandoned Nether Portal in the woods near his home. Him entering this portal would change his form and mind, and lead to the discovery of the mysterious Prophecy, involving him and his two best friends. In The Prophecy, Eeebs' purpose is to serve his master, Runt Ironfurnace.






Backstory

One fateful day, when Eeebs was playing hide-and-seek with his friends Tufty and Meowz, he got lost, and was forced to escape into an old Nether Portal by a group of savage wolves. Afterwards, in The Nether, he met a Ghast named Clyde, who taught him about The Nether and about an Enderman named Enderstar, a mob so crazed his brethren banished him from the End. Later, he would faint and Clyde took him to a witch named Eldra, who would tell him that he was chosen by the Nether, which gave him mysterious powers for a purpose. After coming to terms with this, he wandered, eventually meeting a Wither Skeleton named Batwing, a deserter from Enderstar's forces. He would bring Eeebs to the city of Lavacrest, a town of magic led by a enderman wizard named Grayfellow. Meeting him would teach Eeebs about his newfound powers and the Prophecy, an ominous foretelling of a war pitting the forces of good and evil against each other.

Appearance

Eeebs was a black kitten with green eyes. After his transformation he became an indigo cat, with purple eyes and enchanted claws, and is slightly larger than a normal kitten. When under the effects of the Wildshape potion, Eeebs looks like an anthropomorphic version of a cat. While anthropomorphic Eeebs retains most of his physical features, but his limbs become longer and enable him to walk easier. While anthropomorphic he can also wear human armor. He has a strange marking (indicated to have some significance to the Chosen Beings) and is currently residing in Villagetown.

Personality

Prior to his transformation, Eeebs was disobedient, carefree and fun loving, often playing games, such as hide and seek, with his friends Tufty and Meowz. He lived the simple life of a carefree kitten, until he traveled to the Nether. However, following his visit to the Nether and his transformation, his mind was changed to a degree, making him more responsible and realize how much danger the world is in. He has repeatedly shown his determination to help his friends and make himself more powerful, such as training until Exhaustion, facetanking 3 ultimates, searching for Clyde, chasing down an assassin more powerful than he is and repeatedly risking his life to protect his friends in the Lost Legion. Although at first, he was reluctant to do new things, like his reluctance to eat boags and wear armor, he has proven that he is truly among the destined - not just in his body, but in his spirit.  He also has a hidden ability named Bane of Noobs ll.

Series Timeline

Trivia

  • Eeebs is, so far, the first main protagonist to be a monster, the first main protagonist to be an animal, and the first main protagonist to have their personality modified by magic. Breeze was enhanced by magic, but it is unknown if she was affected personality-wise.
  • Eeebs may have hydrophobia (a fear of water), as highlighted by this quote from Nether Kitten 6/Tales of an 8-bit Kitten 2:
    “As for my swimming skill, that’s a sad story. I once fell into a river when I was a little kitten and have rarely swam since.”
  • Despite his very recent introduction to the larger world of Aetheria, Eeebs seems to have easily adopted human customs, such as using hashtags and slang such as ‘ult’, ‘NPC’ and ‘quest’. However, this is most likely him easily picking up new words.
  • Eeeb’s curiosity getting him into trouble has become a repeating trope throughout the series-his exploration of the forest led to him being chased by wolves, his clueless exploration of the Nether led to him encountering Clyde and unknowingly making an enemy out of Enderstar, and his curiosity led him to run into danger inside the Halls of Agemmon during the events of Nether Kitten 6, despite his common sense telling him not to.
  • Despite his interactions with Runt and the rest of the team, it is as of yet unknown if Eeebs will play a significant role in the Diary of an 8-bit Warrior series moving forward, as he is headed to Silverfall whilst Runt and his friends head to Aetheria City. He may also meet Pebble or play a significant role in Path of Exile
  • However, the two cities close proximity to one another suggest that Eeebs may play a much more significant role.
  • He has a mysterious gift of instantly learning monster abilities he is exposed to.
