Known as "Aaaaaaaaaaah" to his friends (and pretty much everybody else), Plurk was the Licktoad village coward. Until one day when he was running screaming through the forest and encountered a spirit that was running screaming from its death. The two collided and became one. Since then, "Scary Guy" has been teaching Plurk to control his fear, and to inflict it upon others. Since then, he's gained respect in the village.
