Red doesn’t really speak. He says the odd word here and there, but mostly he communicates with little chirrups and peeps, or just with looks and motions. He just seems to prefer it this way, and one quickly learns to pay attention.
At first he may seem detached from conversations or classes, but be assured that he is fully involved, and sometimes his one-word inputs or even just a subtle change of expression can bring something entirely new to the talk. He’s an incredible listener and highly attentive, and is very good at detecting things others may have missed. Red’s quiet does not mean boredom or disinterest, it simply means he is taking everything in and only adding what he thinks needs adding.
