CHARACTERS

Gustav

Gustav, the forest keeper, is an imaginary creature.

An adult forest keeper can be as big as ten meters, but Gustav is still a child, so he is only about ten centimeters tall.

Gustav has no feelings of anger or hatred towards anyone. He is always thinking about how to help his forest residents, but being a quiet creature, he doesn't talk about it much. He admires his father who helps his father’s forest residents, but he doesn't have any magic power like his father. As Gustav goes through various challenges in his forest, he learns many things and eventually solves problems with his childish ideas.

Rita

Rita is vivid and talkative. While she was away from her beehive, a bear attacked it and she was left alone as the other bees flew away, leaving her an orphaned bee. Gustav saved her when a crow attacked her and since then Rita and Gustav have become good friends. Now they live together at Gustav’s home. Rita is a couple of years older than Gustav and she guides Gustav whenever he makes hasty decisions. Rita is marvelously strong. She carries Gustav and other heavy objects quite easily.

Rita loves honey. Whenever she smells honey, she forgets everything else, makes a beeline for honey, and eats all of it at once. After eating honey, her skin becomes smooth and shiny.
