Gatherer was a happy man living in the Village before his unfortunate death. He left the village to tell his family beyond about his newborn child, but was later found on the path behind the Schoolhouse, brutally entangled by the Forest.
He is mentioned to have been cheerful and smiled frequently. He loved children, small animals, and enjoyed telling "boisterous jokes". He liked to toss berries to the children, and gave them another if they caught it in their mouths.
