Recently you were introduced to Paxton, SnoMon’s ‘motivationally challenged’ penguin buddy.

People seemed to be intrigued with Paxton, so I thought it made sense to let everyone get to know him a bit more.

As you already know, the name “Paxton” is of English origin and means “from the peaceful farm”.  And you also learned that although he’s not from a farm, he takes peaceful to a whole new level.

So who is Paxton?

He is an independently wealthy slacker penguin from Antarctica.  His family is royalty from the South Shetland Islands just off the coast of Antarctica, not far from the southern tip of South America.  The islands have been claimed by the United Kingdom since 1908 and have been part of the British Antarctic Territory since 1962.

He’s embarrassed by his wealth, and has a complex about always wearing a tuxedo that he feels portrays a certain aura of high-society upper-class that he is trying to hide from.  As a  result he often wears ridiculous Hawaiian print shirts to try and offset the constant look of pretentiousness that would come with wearing a tuxedo everyday.

Stay tuned…there’s plenty more to learn about Paxton.
