When seeing how animals get scared by Bendy, I am curious of what quirks Bendy has by being a demon.
(I’m glad you asked, friend. The animals thing is definitely annoying… But luckily Bendy doesn’t have to frequent pet shops! The animals freaking out probably wouldn’t happen as much if Bendy didn’t have the aura he does (i.e. a threatening one, it didn’t happen as much before he started having practical use for his abilities) but it doesn’t really bother him anyway.
When he has a bad day, occasionally electronics and other technology doesn’t quite cooperate around him. It’s definitely not always, there’s really only a small chance of it happening, but it’s embarrassing enough that Bendy feels like it happens a lot more than it actually does.
When someone does something particularly bad around him, especially something unnecessarily malicious or against his friends - that is, when he has a really strong feeling of hate, occasionally - without usually meaning to - he makes… accidents happen.
But in general Bendy a lot of the time just makes stuff happen. Ink is the only thing he really has innate, conscious control over, but sometimes he imagines things he wants and they just sort of happen. Or when he feels a particularly strong emotion, especially anger, things sort of just tend to break around him.
Being a demon, the things that happen are almost always destructive. That is, if he really wanted flowers to grow or something… that’s pretty unlikely. If he wanted them to die, the chances are much better.
Luckily these types of things don’t actually tend to happen unless he wants them to - consciously or not.
Like, maybe he should reel in the bad vibes to make animals and technology cooperate with him more, but he’d rather be threatening. He likes to be bad. Maybe he doesn’t want to let his temper get the best of him, maybe he’ll regret it later - but right now breaking those mirrors as a little tantrum was extremely satisfying. And maybe it would have been a good idea not to put the fear of god into that one theater critic who gave them a bad review, but does he regret it? Not a chance.
Are these “quirks” involuntary? Almost always. But do they make Bendy’s life harder? Not as much as you might think. -HG)
