"snicetoo meetyew!"Assok is currently a friendly traveling companion of RGB and The Hero, first appearing in Chapter 7: P.O.V. of the comic on page 115, where they come to visit a distressed Hero.
Assok is, as their name implies, a small yellow-green sock resembling a puppet. They've been described by Hero as "kinda warm" when held.
Their speech bubbles are a cloudy amalgam of the speech bubbles of others, whose words they are currently using.
It is heavily implied that Assok was RGB's previous lost Hero. How they came to be a sock is unknown, but in the process they lost a part of their identity, being described by RGB as "empty", and without voice.
Some unknown amount of time later, they played a very important role in the restoration of the tree in the wasteland. Being small enough to fit in the cracks in the ground, they ate away at the _____ so it would not smother the surviving roots. They encountered Hero and RGB at the tree, and relayed messages between the two as Hero hid up in the branches. They later served to end the argument between the two, which had degraded into simple insults, by mixing phrases into new words such as "blighterpoop", causing our protagonists to simply burst out laughing.
They have tagged along ever since, helping with things such as breaking the tether that kept the sun/tree from floating off, and stopping another argument at the arrival of Julienne and Melody.
- A real-life version of Assok exists, and is in the possession of our very own Sarah Jolley, given to her by tumblr user "rusharound".
- Assok has no gender. They are a sock. In addition to "they" pronouns, alternating "he" and "she" as done with BMO on Adventure Time is also acceptable.
- For a short time after their introduction, the fanbase was convinced that Assok was a dangerous creature, concerned about their vocal-mimicking tendencies and the fact that in this world, nothing is as it seems. Assok was later debunked by Mod to be harmless.
