Perseus "Percy" Boots is a 2016-introduced and all-around character. He is the son of the Puss in Boots and it shows overall due to his sly and mischievous tactics. He strives to be like his father all the while maintaining the minimal work it takes to be a Royal. He is known for stealing things and taking all the credit for everything that he did not even do. With bared fangs and shining eyes, Percy can barely keep his feet on the ground at the thought of fulfilling his destiny -- complete with untold riches at the end of it all. And that’s saying a lot, considering that his feet almost never touch the ground from all the parkouring he does.
Percy can be described with a few words: sly, mischievous, devious, flirty, and cocky. Even if there are many words that can describe him, and it all boils down to him being a sneaky cat with over confident thoughts. He is impulsive and does not regard other's well-being about anything. He is selfish and puts himself before others because he believes he is above everyone else. Anyone that crosses paths with him will consider him to be conceited and arrogant, as he tends to show off all too much. Even if his personality is difficult to acquaint with, his charm makes up for it.
Around girls and guys, he is seductive and flirtatious, mostly saying things they want to hear in order to pickpocket them on the spot or to get something out of them such as their homework. He likes to brag that he can make any person blush within ten seconds of meeting them, and so far, he has not failed yet. Despite his playboy tendencies, he does not prefer to have a relationship at this time. He would rather follow his father’s footsteps closely and sweet-talk multiple people instead of being tied down. He is also very handsy and can’t keep his hands to himself. It heightens the factor of verbal flirting when you throw in small touches on shoulders or chin or even waists. But, when it comes to friends or acquaintances, he is loyal in a subtle way. He believes in the phrase “I scratch your back, you scratch mine”, to an extent. Sometimes he fulfills his end of the bargain, other times, he does not. Promises are something that he does not keep so well either.
He is known as the master of deception and can smooth talk through anything situation, manipulating people to the point where he gains things for his own benefit. His eye is always on anything shiny and anything he wants, he gets. This is why he is so spontaneous, because he lunges himself on whatever captures his attention without thinking first. He does not think he has the need to even second-guess himself, since, in his mind, he is always right. Even when his choices cause the situation to go sour, he would blame outside forces instead of admitting his faults. His stubborn mind hinders him from seeing the truth as it really is. When he hears someone’s real negative thoughts about him, he would push it back to his subconscious, pretending that he didn’t even hear it. He still believes that he is the best, no matter what other people think of him. Thoug, he does get insulted when it’s directly said to his face, but like before, he would rather ignore it.
Percy does not like to participate in most things, but when he is dedicated to one thing, he is willing to give it his all. This is mostly when something interferes with his destiny and graduation. He would only get the minimal passing grade, but hey, it’s passing. Percy disregards other peoples’ stories and only puts emphasis on reading and re-reading his own story in case he missed any details about being Puss in Boots. It is the only thing he is anal about and would fight anyone that tries to sabotage his father’s legacy. As many would put it: Percy is a spitting image of Puss, and is a two for one deal since their behaviors are exactly the same. Like father, like son.
Hobbies and Interests
Percy loves to steal and deceit others, as many times he is told that was wrong of him. He does not care about what belonged to who, because the moment he spots it: it’s his. He mostly steals gold or golden things and sometimes jewelry and baubles. He has quite the collection from years of stealing things from others, as they all lie in a pile next to his dresser. It is a rather large pile and he likes to lay on top of it for a nap or for a pamper. People have suspected him of stealing their items, but after a smooth talk session with him, he is able to diverge their attention elsewhere. This is why he refuses to room with anyone, lest they rat him out for having a massive amount of treasure in his room. That plan backfired as Headmaster Grimm give the other half of his room to Romeo V. Cupid, seeing that he was a troublemaker too. The Headmaster had no choice but to room two delinquents together, as both of them can butt heads together instead of bothering the other good students. He does get annoyed that Romeo calls upon the afterlife in satanic rituals in the middle of the night, but annoys Romeo equally by scratching up his aerial silk sheets.
Percy is an early riser kind of kitty and loves the atmosphere of the morning fog and brisk breezes. It catches up to him, however, whenever he is in class or perched upon a tree. He would knock out quickly to what he calls a “cat nap”. It is easy to wake him up, since he’s a super light sleeper and would fidget at the sound of paper rustling. Despite his various cat naps, he is an energetic and athletic cat with a toned build to him. He enjoys the excitement and rush of parkour and running up tall things. With the help of his clawed fingers, he able to latch onto surfaces for easier access. As one observes his parkour, it is dutifully noted that he seems very acrobatic and flexible in the way he maneuvers his way around. Again, he does it mostly to show off and display his body, since it takes a really big toll on his energy doing it.
Dancing is another passion of his, but mostly just hip hop and salsa. He likes to interrupt the ballet class with his abrupt dancing, blasting his music over their classical ones. Madame Baba Yaga always chases him out with a broom, but that does not prevent him from returning. However, he cannot for the life of him, do ballet. He gives props to those who can, but he mostly falls flat on his face due to the differences of muscles in vaulting up buildings to holding up his weight on his toes. It was expected of him to be able to do ballet, but the most he can do it lift someone up during their performance, and he is more than happy to volunteer. He also loves tango because of the close contact he has with other people, but he can never find a dance partner that wants to dance with him. He blames his claws being too sharp, but never the factor that he gets personally too close to one person. He takes this tango passion from Puss, as he watches his father do the dance a lot when he was younger. Another dance he likes to engage in is dancing at nightclubs past curfew time. It is pumping around the time he is expected to sleep, but when has Percy ever followed the rules?
Percy stands at a full 6'2 and possesses smooth olive skin. His structure is toned and lean due to the exercise he does every day. He has a chiseled jawline like most boys in Ever After High does complete with sharp heterochromia eyes, one being green and the other being yellow. He is of East Asian descent with silky black hair highlighted in the front with electric green. His face is adorned with lime green face paint which matches his green tattoos that decorate his limbs. There are off-white ears that stick up and fade to black along with a few earrings on them. His other human ears usually have several piercings as well. He has a sharp tooth smile with feline teeth that show whenever he smiles or talks.
Percy has a white button up underneath all his clothes. He also wears a dark green collar vest that is dotted with yellow feathers. A vintage black jacket is thrown over it with a shredded and ripped tail coat. Around his neck is a brown leather collar with a golden bell in front of his throat. Another shark tooth necklace hangs from his neck. He has brown gloves: one long and one short -- that have golden claws on the fingertips to compensate for his clawless fingers. A green sash wraps around his waist and two brown belts are clipped over it, complete with golden buckles. A small golden chain clips onto one of the belts and has little bell charms hanging from it. His pants are light brown and off-white with black buttons and two stripes on either side of the pants. His boots are his most prized possession as they are made from gold that Percy had stolen over the years and melted into shiny golden boots. They are carefully laid on top of black boots and adorn the whole boots with real gold. His tail is off white and black like his ears and has a golden ring on it. His tail is constantly moving and active in whatever he does.
His cat form is off-white with black gradients on his legs and tail. His eyes are still heterochromic and ons paws are golden clips to resemble boots. He turns into a cat whenever he needs to get up at a high enough place, or sometimes, just for fun.
Fairy tale – Puss in Boots
How the Story Goes
In the tale, a miller was on the brink of death and passes on his inheritance to his three sons: the eldest receiving the mill, the second eldest receiving mules and the youngest son inheriting a cat. Obviously disappointed, the youngest son was told by the cat that he will do everything in his power to make the son rich. But first, he requested a pair of boots to which the son obliged to. Afterward, the cat got to work, capturing a rabbit and presenting it to the king of the land. For many months, the cat delivered gifts to the king.
One day, the kind was out on a stroll with his daughter, the princess, on a carriage. Seeing this, the cat told his master, the youngest son, to strip and go into the lake. The cat took the clothes and stuffed them underneath a rock. The cat captured the attention of the king, fully distressed, explaining that his master had been robbed of his clothes while bathing in the lake. The king took in the cat's master, dressing him in royal clothes, which captured the attention of the princess. She immediately fell in love with him.
The cat runs ahead of the carriage, announcing that his young master owned some land and encounters an ogre who inhabited a piece of land. The ogre is capable of transforming into many creatures and the cat deceived him, giving him the challenge to change into a mouse. When he did, the cat pounced on him and devours him. The land then belonged to the young master and the King was so impressed, he gave riches and his daughter to the young master. The cat then kept his promise and lives in riches with his young master.
How does Percy come into it?
Percy's father, Puss, is notorious for his crimes, and wanted posters are plastered throughout the Ever After world with his face on it. He has a habit of seducing women and men, sleeping with many of them and sneaking off into the night. He doesn't keep up with anyone that he might be the potential father for, except for Percy, mostly because Puss’ best friend/master (who Percy calls Uncle), took little Percy in and took care of him whenever Puss isn't home. Percy is next in line to become the next Puss in Boots. He will start from scratch and not live in riches with his father as he is much too excited to pursue his passion as the manipulative cat. Percy really wants to be like Puss when he grows up, therefore, he learns whatever his father does to follow closely into his footsteps, including flirting abilities, parkour, thieving, and perhaps even assassination someday. He is most excited about the riches that lie at the end of his path and would do anything to get there.
Percy is in good relations with his father. He looks up to his father as his father taught him everything he needed to know to steal, sweet talk and parkour. Puss handed down his trusty sword and flintlock pistol to Percy when Percy turned 18 and they are Percy’s most prized possessions. From when he was little, Percy was taught to handle weapons, mostly since Puss insisted that he was not going to let Percy into the real world without those skills. They both still contact each other via MirrorPad and Percy often leaves his dorm at night to hang out with his father at his estate.
Percy does not know much about his mother, but he hears from Uncle that his mother was a very beautiful woman and despite Puss having many partners and lovers, he loved her the most. Unfortunately, she was betrothed to someone else, only having feelings for Puss and not her fiance. He offered to help her run away with him, but she denied, worried about her family's well being without her. Additionally, because Puss was so notorious, he had to leave her so that no one would suspect her and cause her harm. Puss was saddened by it, mostly since he was happy that he could start a real family this time, but all that was in vain because he had to flee. Puss then resumed his playboy life, and one day, a beautiful woman knocked at the doors of Uncle's castle.
She was desperate, hastily asking for Puss, but unfortunately, he was a nomad and was off in a far country by the time she got there. The woman mentioned that she needed to leave something to him, which was baby Percy. Uncle denied her, seeing as most ladies had done this and Puss denied every time. But what set her apart was that she had left a gold tail ring into Percy's small hand and left without another word. Uncle took in the baby momentarily until the morning where he can drop Percy off at an orphanage. Puss had returned early in the morning to drop off some treasures in his room and Uncle welcomed him home. Uncle nonchalantly spoke of another child that was dropped off by another woman but reassured Puss that he would deliver the baby to the orphanage soon. Puss agreed but did a double take on the golden tail ring held tightly in Percy's hand. Immediately, he recognized it-- as it was the promise ring he had given to the love of his life. From then, Puss knew that this baby was one he had to keep, as Percy was the only thing leftover of his love, and was the child they both had hoped to raise together one day. Ever since then, the promise ring was given to Percy which was placed around his tail as a symbol of his mother. Still, Percy couldn’t help but be curious at who his mother is, but keeps it at the back of his mind since his whole focus was primarily on following his destiny and keeping true to the Puss in Boots tale. To this day, Percy knows that Puss is still looking for his amorcita, and it had been years, but he wasn't giving up, even if she was married by now.
Percy grew up in a rich castle with Uncle and his wife, the Princess. The Princess aided in being a maternal figure for Percy and she would help him with his wardrobe and etiquette. She believed that Percy should at least know when a line is crossed and how to be polite. Uncle helped him improve his weaponry skill and strength to prepare him for a fight whenever. Their son is good friends with Percy, as they love to fight each other, sometimes surprising the other with attacks on random occasions. The Princess’s father, the King rarely talks to Percy,but does give encouraging words every so often.
He considers his boots as his only friends and the only things he can depend on since he did make them. Percy thinks Ashlynn is also a “bestie” since he is always on the lookout for discounts at her shoe shop. She finds it comical that he stares at the boot section in awe, even requesting to try on the glass walking boot one time. Of course, he didn’t fit it, but he still walked around in them like it was the perfect size. Being around in the shoe shop for a while, he sometimes encounters Sparrow Hood, who also hides within the ladies’ shoe aisle sometimes. They both like to sing loudly and disturb the other guests because annoying + annoying = double the annoying.
As much as Percy doesn't like to admit it, he does consider his roommate, Romeo to be a friend. Maybe even best friend, if you're able to pry that statement from his tongue. If you were the unlucky ones to be next door to these roommates, shouts and insults could be heard from inside of the dorm. It was so consistent that many asked to be moved elsewhere to escape from the loud volumes. If anything, they both find ways to fight or anger the other. Percy has a habit of ripping up Romeo's aerial silks (blame the cat side of him wanting to claw at anything hanging) and Romeo awakens Percy from his cat naps due to ahem... loud partners. Even so, they both have a sense of attachment for each other and it shows when they are getting ready together in the morning or pouring their hearts out about a situation. Both are mysterious in their own ways, but respect those aspects of themselves.
Percy does get very annoyed when Romeo flirts with Celes, and it's very apparent. It only makes Romeo want to do it more frequently (which he does) and Percy is lowkey glad she does not show interest back to the pink Cupid boy.
Percy and Anne were childhood friends who have known each other since they were kindergarteners. Their fathers have traveled a lot with each other due to the thirst for adventure and Anne was left with Percy’s uncle some of the time. They, at first, hated each other due to the fear of “cooties”, but became close due to their love of sparring. Anne was a natural at sword fighting and always corrected Percy’s uncle of his stance or position for fencing. Anne’s own father taught her to wield a rapier and beat her dear feline friend every time. After all, she basically taught him to improve his technique.
Percy was the only person she trusted with her secret, however. She told him how she preferred girls and had no interest in the opposite gender. Percy, of course, was understanding, since he and his father did not care for gender when it comes to courting. He sees her as his little sister, even if she still overpowers him at her extensive swordsmanship skill. Equally as much, she is the only person Percy trusts with the pistol his father handed down to him.
He also considers Kitty Cheshire as a friend since he admires her teleportation skills and that they both do mischievous kitty things together as well. He loves taking cat naps with her as they both occupy branches on the same tree. Sometimes, when they’re adventurous, they both would pull pranks on other students. It’s funny since both of them do not get into trouble for that since they would be “following their destinies”.
During one of the ballet classes, which he interrupted, he had bumped into Minuette, and then met her again in Ashlynn's shoe shop. They became good friends with their similar interests, even finding out that they both love to sneak out of the dorms to boogie on the dance floor.
Percy has a lot of people he likes to bother and one of them is Krystal Glassmountain. She has a lovely glass crown on her head that is much too shiny for him not to steal. He likes to play around with her and flirt, his claws always a few centimeters away from her glass items. Even if they weren't gold, he was still interested in it, and also interested in the golden apple pies that Krystal talks about. He intends to see for himself just what this "golden" item she is talking about.
David's father knew Percy's father many years ago as Puss was always the only to swoop in and steal Davy Jones's booty. Of course, this sprung a friendly rivalry between the both of them in where Davy's ship was one of the most difficult places to steal anything from because Davy goes to sea all the time: having Puss to steal things quickly and flee before Davy sets sail. This seeped into Percy as he still loves following his father's footsteps, and this would mean infiltrating David's ship to steal some gold. The both of them do seem to have a thing for shiny things and it would either end up with the both of them fighting over it or helping each other gain some of that booty. Either way, they have a cat and fish relationship and mission impossible partners in crime.
At first, it was rather difficult to befriend Nautica, mostly because she was constantly surrounded by water. Percy did not prefer being soaked and it happens a lot when he does try to approach her. Eventually, Nautica's seawater magic was controlled better and Percy found his way in just to use his usual flirting techniques on her. Like most girls, she rejected his attempts, but not before befriending him and looking past his charms. They butt heads a lot but do enjoy each other's company as cat and fish.
Percy has a falcon named Aristotle who likes to perch on top of Percy’s gold pile sometimes. He is very useful when it comes to stealing as well. His powerful and quick wings allow him to swoop down and snatch anything in someone’s hand. He then flies back up to land on Percy’s forearm, dropping off the treasure into Percy’s hand.
Percy is too focused on his destiny to be tied down to a single person. He is aware that people are crushing on him like Nautica, but then again, he thinks that every girl and guy in school has a crush on him. He has no problem with flirting with each and every one of them enough to invade their personal space. Either way, he doesn’t seem to be interested in being in a committed relationship at the moment since he has bigger fish to fry.
Even so, Percy had been bothering Celes Mochigome for a while and it always ends up with her shouting at him. He still likes to flirt with her and prod into her everyday life, and he doesn't let her outbursts get to him. Either way, he feels like she is one of the most real people that he's ever met, as she voiced her annoyance on him and actually points out things that are wrong with him. Percy does try to ignore it, but lately, he's been taking her words to heart and he isn't sure why. Perhaps it was the cat within himself being enticed to a bunny.
His pride and joy outfit, complete with his golden boots.
Also used as his dance wear, minus the sneakers.
Hat-Tastic Tea Party
Design by MonsooonSeasonn
A thank you for voting Percy as COTM!! Here, he wears his dad's old Legacy Day outfit. It's an oldie, but a goodie. He has on a big hat that represents honor and a gold sword that represents strength. He's a sucker for hand-me-downs from his father, so he doesn't add a single touch of Percy to this outfit - apparent from the lack of earrings he wears or tail accessory, minus the ring from his mother.
This is basically a thank you gift for all those who voted Percy for the Navigation Tabs! Here, he is sporting a long tailcoat and his most expensive Hans Christian Dior boots. His hair is a little more slicked than unusual, but due to his parkouring, he messes it up pretty quickly. He has a crest on his necklace, which is a gift from his father. He has intricate facepaint in place of a mask and fully intends on winning Thronecoming king.
Way Too Wonderland
Percy has a more neon color palette that has neon green, purple, pink and yellow. His boots are thigh high boots that are purple and pink. His coat has chess and swirl patterns and flares out into a tailcoat. He also wears a green jumper with gold ornaments. Bells dot his outfit as well.
Inspired by matador bullfighters, Percy sports a matador outfit perfect for teasing those dragons. His childhood friend, Scarlet Anne, had always engaged in bullfighting alongside with him. Even if dragons are not used for fighting, he is surely to ace Dragon Slaying class in this outfit.
Through the Woods
Percy is in more of a casual outfit and can maneuver easily around with it on. He still prefers to put on golden clips on his boots, since he can never leave the house without gold. His date is probably his boots and they will go to a shoe shining place.
Fairest On Ice
Percy has a more lighter and pastel palette. His faux fur lining matches the fur he has on his ears and tail. A hood covers his head and cat ears to ensure warmth. He skimps on gold because metal is super cold during winter and he hates that. He despises cold so he will stay indoors for the rest of Epic Winter, making this outfit totally useless.
Percy has green all over what more can i say
Summer is the time where Percy shines the most. He has on a Hawaiian button up shirt with fish scale patterning, pawprint necklace with toe beans and a white visor. He doesn't have any type of footwear in because he knows they will be ruined by the sand and water. Despite having swimming trunks on, he refuses to go near the sea, so he stays along the coast and shows off his abs or plays soccer (or what he calls, "futbol").
- He loves to dance to hip-hop. He is able to pop and lock and breakdance and usually does it at the dance studio. Sometimes he disrupts the ballet classes to show off.
- He parties at the Red Shoe Dance Club most nights. It is usually after curfew but he sneaks out anyways and vaults up to his dorm after it is finished.
- Loves to tango, being a little to close for comfort when doing so.
- He adores Kitty Cheshire’s magical transportation abilities but doesn’t have them. He makes do by parkouring, which is a close second to get to where he needs faster. It helps that he’s a cat and is fast on his feet.
- He is well versed in Spanish.
- Percy has a strong Spanish accent. which he is insecure about.
- He’s super annoying and never shuts up. He thinks everyone likes him, but he’s honestly too annoying and cocky.
- His tail is constantly moving and highly animated no matter what he’s doing.
- He turns into a cat a lot and uses this to his advantage.
- His guilty pleasure is shopping at Ashlynn Ella’s Glass Slipper Shoe Store but he will not tell anyone. He hangs out there just to look at the new shipment of boots. He can never fit the ladies’ boots, but he tries them on anyways.
- He has a habit of smooth talking through his assignments, but it catches up to him quickly because he never does them.
- Probably the laziest Royal there is. He likes his destiny a lot and wouldn’t want to change it, but his Royal ranks stink.
- He’s a thief and likes to pickpocket his classmates. Never leave your finished homework out – he will find a way to steal it and make it his own.
- He's also a lock picker and can open doors using his claws. It was a technique he learned from Blondie Lockes.
- Keeps catnip in his pouches along with golden coins. He loves anything shiny and gets wide eye upon encountering them. If he likes it, he will take it, no matter what. This is why being roomies with him is difficult. Romeo threatens to tell everyone about his stolen goods if Percy didn't stop stealing from him.
- He has dabbled in bullfighting before, but it freaks him out a lot.
- He has a bunch of other tattoos but has to cover most of them up. The marks on his face is paint, however.
- He is president of the RoyalTEAM dance club, which is something he is actually passionate about running. It is a dance team for those who prefer hip-hop dancing like he does.
- He has an RP blog!! (Still trying to renovate it lol)

I inherited his quick reflexes and keen senses which gives me the ability to swoop in and steal yo things. I even stole Professor Daring Charming's mirror one time and that made him dismiss class early. Needless to say, people always request me to do stuff like that to get out of class sooner. Sure, I was the first to get accused, but with a sharp tongue, you can get away with anything.
Just saying, I totally anyone's type, yo. I mean, who doesn't want all this? Everyone loves me. If I were you, I'd do anything to get to this kitty. I know, I know, I'm so irresistible. I don't know how I can handle all this hotness all in one go. I mean, I look at myself in the mirror every morning and I still get shocked at how gorgeous I am. Here, touch the fabric of my shirt. Feel that? 100% boyfriend material. I'm A+ hot stuff, babe.
Hm, I suppose I should tell you something about myself then. My favorite hangout is the Red Shoes Dance Club and you can see me there partying at night and practicing dance by day in the studio next to it. I'm pretty good at dancing and hard-hitting choreography is my favorite. I have my boots to thank for that. I'm a bit of a party guy and I arrive at my dorm like way past curfew. It's a good thing I can vault up to the dorm window. Guess that's all you need to know for now. Don't expect too much from me since I'm a Royal and all.

PortrayalsPercy's faceclaim would be Kai from EXO-K. Kai possesses feline -ike appearances and likes to smirk, much like Percy. Their hair also matches to an extent and Kai's body frame is similar to Percy. Kai's dancing style also matches closely to how Percy dances, which is fierce choreography and hard -itting pop and locks. Kai is also very flirty and handsy, regardless of who he is with at the time; this translates over to Percy for he is the same and loves to flirt and touch others with his sharp, golden claws. He does not realize that it makes others uncomfortable either.
Percy would be voiced by Max Mittelman. He likes to sing sometimes but doesn't like to showcase his singing voice to others. His voice would be very boyish and deep, with a hint of slyness. He finds it difficult to whisper, but also easy to conceal his singing. He only sings to himself while polishing his boots or if he is in the shower.
