2 "Greetings. I'm Gremlin. Despite my checkered history, I can actually be quite charming. A true romantic. You may have heard I can be a bit combative, but I have a fluffy side, too. I adore all animals, long spins on the beach, and bashing worthy opponents with foreign objects for maximum impact. I also love to cook. Maybe you like what you see. I'd love to have you for dinner- I mean, have you over for dinner. But first, let's snuggle up as I serenade you."
