Characteristics and personalities of the Earth Pig

They’re very impressive and so singularly uncomplicated it's almost a joke. 

They like to (in order) work very, very hard, eat, drink and protect those they cherish. 

They’re extremely straightforward characters. 

They’re strong, stable, honorable, wonderfully loyal, fantastically reliable, friendly and just the best company. 

They don’t really have any flaws. They’re a Pig so they’re actually a very sensitive soul, but they conceal this aspect of their character really rather well.
