friendly dirnel marionette
Look: A long ponytail trails behind the puppet, swaying with the slightest movement. Though the face is painted with a gentle expression, the fierce teeth barely visible demonstrate the dirnel's dedication to protection. Given a free hand, you think you can PUSH, PULL, TURN, POKE, TAP, RUB, CLEAN, POINT, WAVE, BREAK or SCREAM at the little puppet to make it perform.
