Sportacus is autistic
• in some cases, autistic people have moderate to severe trouble differentiating relationships (i.e. it’s hard for them to tell the different between an acquaintance and a friend, that sort of thing) which is why sportacus is so kind and amiable with robbie, cos he just doesn’t get why he wouldn’t be
• sporp needs constant stimulation, which usually comes in the form of exercise, and that’s his method of stimming
• his special interest is anything athletic
• he doesn’t have many friends his age, instead choosing to hang out with the kids as he gets along with them well
• he’s got a tendency to be very literal, not taking well to figures of speech, sarcasm, or tone signals
