His appearance was often described as slovenly, as he is commonly seen with either a chicken drumstick in his hand or a gourd of wine on his person. After he becomes the Pavilion Master of Shrek Academy's Sea God's Island, he takes more care of his appearance but is still a glutton.
Initially shown to be very strict and stern, he is later revealed to be an exceptionally caring mentor and leader, especially towards the Shrek Academy students and members of the Guardians. Due to a previous guardian mission in which majority of the guardians died, and the events shortly before the first Soul Master Tournament, he considers himself unworthy to be at Shrek and unfit to watch over the students and the school. However, with some encouragement from Elder Mu, he becomes one of the pillars of Shrek Academy and guides the junior generation of Shrek's Seven Monsters to their greatest potential.
