Steve the Slug

Steve the Slug is perhaps the most famous of my slugs. He was my best mate until I accidentally killed him with my lawnmower. Steve was my top slug, closest friend, and the one that I could recite my poetry to during all hours of the night – once he listened to me for 36 hours straight and only fell asleep 28 times. He was an extremely loyal slug, standing side by side with me through thick and thin, and helping me to uncover the coup that Clyde the Slug was planning. He may not have had any special skills or superpowers (except for the normal slug traits of creating slime and being able to break into shopping centres), but he had the most important things – patience, trust, love and loyalty. How I regret choosing to mow the lawn that day, having been up all night consuming vast quantities of my patented Noggin Rocker™.

Slug Fact: Slugs have been around for millions of years.
