Welcome to Night Vale, who simply goes by the name "Vale", is based on the Podcast "Welcome To Night Vale" created by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor and published by Commonplace Books.
Welcome to Night Vale is a Radio show about a little town in the desert somewhere in the southwest United States. "Twice-monthly community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff's Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events."' -Actual Podcast Description
Vale is based off of the fanon appearances of Cecil Gershwin Palmer, The radio Host and Voice of Night Vale and Carlos the Scientist, sharing personality aspects with them both.
Vale is a 6'1" young male with long blond hair on the right side of his head and short brown hair on the left. He wears black framed glasses, a violet long sleeve button up shirt with the sleeves rolled up to the elbow, A purple sweater vest and purple pants. (it is implied that they are fur pants but it is never stated whether or not they really are).
Just like the fanon appearance for Cecil, Vale has tattooed tentacles and eyes on his arms and body that can move and become real at will. He also has a Third eye in the middle of his forehead.
He wears a pair of Purple Headphones around his neck. They are the most forgotten piece of his attire and he is missing them in most art.
Vale is a very cool and collected kind of guy. He tends to speak from a darker viewpoint and he does enjoy this darker way of life. He is, however, upset or depressed most of the time. He tries to look at the "bright side" of things the best he can.
Vale is also rather naive to some things and tends to speak his mind. This has gotten him into trouble many times.
