Skinnys is the older brother of Fats in Edge of Reason.
In fourth grade, Oren used his right hand to portray the character of Fats as he practiced ventriloquism. Wanting a second character to interact with the first, he used his left to portray Fats' big brother, Skinnys.
Skinnys is a rail-thin lizard with a mustache-like pair of tendrils on his upper jaw. Unlike his slacker brother, Skinnys tends to dress well, wearing a tie most of the time.
Skinnys is a slavish worker, compulsive perfectionist and a terrible coffee addict.
The earliest drawing of Skinnys (not available today) was a hand with two feet, eyes and a mustache.
