Pessimist-242 is a Mark 3 Clockwork Cherub.
Description[edit | edit source]
Pessimist-242 is a member of the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids, and, more specifically, of the Blue Feather, their emphatically non-elite task-force. Unlike his teammates, Pessimist is part of the Blue Feather not because he is incompetent as such, but rather because he is a depressingly down-looking cynic seemingly incapable of getting excited about anything, who never misses a chance for a wry remark.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Pessimist-242 first appeared in 2019 in the short story Acquaintanceship-982 and the Missing Mail Mystery.
