Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview… aspiring inventor living in Swallow Falls. With an emphasis on ‘aspiring’. Every single one of Flint's creations – ratbirds, spray-on shoes, hair unbalder – have ended in failure. When the Baby Brent Sardine Cannery, the town’s main source of income, shuts down, residents are left with only one food source: sardines. This inspires Flint to make the FLDSMDFR, a machine that converts water molecules into food. If he succeeds, the inhabitants of Swallow Falls will be able to feast on whatever they want. Given Flint’s past blunders, however, that is a pretty big "if."

Personality… energetic, creative, and odd. Flint is basically the town nutcase. To most residents, he is a nuisance with crazy hair who introduced pesky ratbirds onto the island. But Flint is determined to prove everyone wrong. Together with his monkey lab assistant, Steve, Flint is bent on changing the world with his inventions. He just has to get them to work first.
