Senior Grey. Affectionately known as The Senior. The backbone of the Bristles basement. A sound Eurocratican – yet still totally in love with his own country, The Duchy of Neverland.
At first glance he doesn’t look old enough to have been The Senior for decades.
This picture was taken on his first day as a Grey all those years ago.
… and this today as The Senior.
Spot the difference!
It’s down to careful management of time – always on his way to or from a meeting but rarely enough time to actually attend them or stick around for long, let alone make decisions. No stress, you see …
It’s also down to a sound relationship with the basement box shifters. The Senior nurtures loyal Greys like the reliably efficient and compliant Stickler Grey from Germolena, and Groveller Grey from The Shrek Republic, a past master at brown-nosing.
The Senior is simply all-round nice. Give him a yellow box and a counter bell to play with and he’s happy as a sandboy.
In fact, so idyllic is working life in the Eurocratic Union, that regardless of how long they’ve worked there, no Grey ever looks a day older than when they first started. And they thrive on The Senior’s benevolence. One of his rare tickings-off feels as punitive as a pampering session in the Union’s onsite health spa.
All in all, The Senior and his team are perfect for promoting the Eurocratic Union’s role as – as – well, whatever it is …
