Bashful is a male dwarf.
Bashful is one of the Seven Dwarfs living together in their cottage in an enchanted kingdom in the Black Forest, and spends his days mining for jewels with the others. As his name states, Bashful is shy and fussy, though also, on the flip-side, kind and gentle. Along with his siblings, Bashful took Snow White in after she fled from her stepmother's murderous intentions, and ended up befriending her. Bashful is also a bit of an artist.
Behind the scenes
Bashful first appeared in 1937 in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He has only been the title character of a handful of stories, including the 1949 one-pager simply called Bashful, notable for revealing that he is an amateur painter.
