Bread is a blond haired human midget. Also known as a dwarf or imp.
Some might consider him good looking despite his size.
Bread and his twin brother Mule were sold into slavery by their father at a young age. Their father had to haggle the buyer down from two loafs of bread and a mule, to one loaf of bread and a mule, in order for the buyer to take Bread as well as Mule.
The boys farmed for their master for many years until they were rescued by a traveling carnival.
The master of the carnival became their new master and father figure, training the boys in all manner of tricks and thievery.
The boys then betrayed the master, and are now on the run from him.
They also like to deal in stolen merchandise, finding the right buyers.
