consider Terezi and Karkat living in ancient woods filled to the brim with horrifying monsters. only a complete badass or someone who’s VERY LUCKY would dwell there. Terezi is the badass, Karkat is… shockingly resourceful. they both have thier own reasons for not wanting much to do with society
not so long ago they found a human friend, it is Dave. Dave was raised by robots (Squarewave and Sawtooth because I love those guys) but was seperate dfrom them because no one thinks robots can raise kids. Karkat and Terezi basically rescued Dave from unfortunate circumstances and he just lives there, he’s their live-in human buddy, he refuses to go outside without them covering him despite being a badass.
(Also, Dave may be a robot himself, an android made specifically to look human)
and then there’s John
he just walks in through these absurdly dangerous woods by himself; no weapons, no special skills, nothing hurts him at all, initially it’s assumed that he’s so blaise to danger that the danger got embarassed
then it turns out, he befriended all the monsters
together, these four knuckleheads fight crime hang out together and chill a lot
