Bringing minors to bars

Ples is totes a responsible authority figure…
I like to imagine Ples had a ‘petty larceny phase’ that started roughly around the time he became obsessed with clocks and time-pieces, which he’ll only admit to when he’s tipsy. He is normally embarrassed at this part of his life, but when he’s drunk he becomes strangely proud of it.
(The Beartrap Child nickname is from a fanfiction I read once and I thought it was an endearingly blunt description of Veser)
