Spotlight : Orange
What on Earth is a crayon doing on the desktop? This poor guy seems a
bit out of place.
Orange, is a crayon that was inadvertently left behind during a “bring
your child to work day". Being a bit of an outsider, he struggles to be
accepted by those around him. He frequently overcompensates for his
insecurity by lashing out at those around him in an attempt to prove
that he is superior.
Orange often sees things with a clarity that eludes the other desktop
characters and he cannot resist pointing out their mistakes. As a
result, he has had some difficulty making friends. However, as with
most places, there are always a few kindred spirits and he can be found
regularly socializing with Chewey and the other desktop misfits.
Orange represents the voice of reason and common sense, while
highlighting the importance of humility over self-importance. His
relationship with Chewey illustrates the value of friendship and the
struggle of finding a place in a diverse society after childhood.
