Hobo is quite possibly one of the most socially inept dragons to walk the face of Sornieth. Although the big red Tundra is filled with emotions and has a lot of love to give, he can't seem to get the hang of expressing himself. Like Nana, Hobo had been alone all his life, and wanted nothing more than to have a home, to fall in love, start a family, and surround himself with friends. Luckily, he's found a ton of new friends in Denutena's Candyclan, but he still hasn't been that lucky with love.
When Hobo first saw Nana, she was busy building a lair all on her own. It was love at first sight, and Hobo immediately wanted to run to her, but he didn't think it was wise to disturb the hard-working little Fae. So, instead of offering a helping hand (which would've been much appreciated!), the big red floofball stayed put. Hobo knew from experience that disturbing others wasn't a good idea. The few times other dragons actually came up to Hobo to talk, he had been busy himself, and, focused as he was, the interruptions always greatly startled him. Hobo would scream and bellow in confusion, scaring the other dragons away and leaving him alone again. No, connecting to others was not his strong suit.
The red Tundra waited and waited, while Nana struggled to build her lair. A few days later, at sundown, the little Fae was finally done. Exhausted, she sat down against the wall. This was his chance! Hobo didn't waste another second stomping over. He barged into Nana's lair, sat his big floofy butt down on the ground, and loudly proclaimed: "I live here too now! We should breed!" This was Hobo's way of asking the little Fae on a date, but Nana was too petrified to even respond. Hobo felt confused, but seeing as the little lady didn't flee from him like the other dragons always did, he assumed that all was well.
It wasn't until Cookie joined shortly after that Nana started to feel safe in her own home. Cookie seemed to have a gift for reading the big red floofball, as well as the peculiar Fae body language. Acting as a mediator, the three quickly became close friends, and as Denutena's Candyclan grew, Hobo was even chosen to be on the Council with Nana and Cookie!
