  • Chaos Sprite: "Chaos Sprite has never understood River Sprite. But we're sure they'd be friends if flames weren't so easily extinguished by water."
  • [Tweaked] Splash Town Choncc: "Splash Town Choncc's dream is winning the Splash Party surfing competition. And with how much napping they do, they're likely to keep on dreaming."
