Creecher Residence[]

  • Caroleena - Creepie's mantis adoptive mother who governs the Creecher House with a firm but gentle appendage. She and Vincent the Mosquito have been a couple since before finding Creepie. The two treat the insects of the house as family with Caroleena being chiefly interested in dining etiquette. She struggles with what Creepie calls an insatiable hunger and lives as one who is conscious about her figure. She mostly feeds on larva such as caterpillars and is on a "no friends or family diet" according to Creepie. [Episode 1 "The Tell-Tale Poem"] She goes on 'health walks' to stay in shape but it's really an excuse for her to get out of the house if the struggle becomes taxing.
  • Vincent Creecher - Caroleena's husband is Vincent, who doesn't drink blood despite being a mosquito (male mosquito's don't). He does a lot of meditation and sciency tinkering. The home has been in his family for many years and some time in the past he began to date Caroleena who apparently was a lot worse back then but she changed for him. It wasn't a sudden change, and isn't totally complete but Caroleena tries for love's sake and with various anniversaries of their union she's been doing well for years.
