brave eyes


The most famous Italian plumber from Brooklyn anywhere (except for maybe Luigi), Mario is a hero to the last, always rescuing one person or another, selfless, thoughtful, and kind. He is good friends with all the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom, especially Princess Toadstool (wink wink). This friendship springs from the fact that Mario has rescued the Princess from peril, out of the jaws of death (well, maybe not, but away from Bowser anyway) at least five or six times. So, when Bowser kidnapped Princess Toadstool this latest time, Mario was not surprised. Nor did he even break a sweat! For though Bowser has already proved himself to be a formidable foe, Mario has faith in the fact that good will always prevail over evil. A faith that may yet prove unfounded, unless he and his friends can defeat Smithy and return peace to the Mushroom World!
