I get dibs on the idea that everything Cherik has, like his extra masks and clothes and stuffed birds and things, are all unwanted or broken things.
Clothes from the costume department that were torn or tossed out and he fixed em up on his own, same with the birds i think got tossed out from an opera production and he saved them from the damp of the cellars which is why some of them look worse for wear
And it’s like that with everything he owns. It’s always been unwanted and second best, but he took it, fixed it up, and gave whatever it was new worth
That’s what iii think
