The Protos are the roots of all Knittables and represent the Wise Spirits
After they first appeared, they had to adapt and defend themselves from all kinds of predators. They had to fight to be able to survive in a world that was not adapted to their needs and had started without them. To accomplish this, they had to make use of all the objects they could find, adjusting them to fit their needs.
They are kind, respectful, and patient creatures that only use violence to defend themselves. They never attack without good reason. They respect nature and all other living beings and try their best to live in harmony with their surroundings by making sure to always being aligned with their moral and ethical compass.
