Boink: a restaurateur
orig: a construction worker, building monuments to the Bling King
now: a chef who never makes the same meal twice
odd: he puts a part of himself into every dish: tears, blood, toenails, etc.
voice: quiet, deferential, humble
Boink laboured for years, selling his strength, to construct the endless parade of salutory monuments demanded by the Bling King, until he’d finally had enough: he wanted to build small, temporary works, rather than gigantic, permanent ones. Now, he uses the raw materials of the wastes to cook a thousand different meals — never the same thing twice — and he puts some small token of himself into each one, be it an eyelash, some spit, or something far more foul.
