Royal Petites Animals

Hailing from the wilds of Kazungula, Hector is a reserved sort of fellow, having spent his early years in the shadow of his many older brothers and sister (hippos are a hierarchical bunch, you see). Hes a lover of long soaks in the bath, a voracious reader, and always up for a thoughtful discussion about current events. He’s also a very good listener, and will drop everything to be there when you need him.
