History[edit]

Background[edit]

In Super Princess Peach, Perry's story is revealed through his dreams. Perry found himself on a mountain as a young boy, who didn't know who he was, but had strange powers that allowed him to survive on the mountain. He met an old man, who took him home to protect him, and adopted him when he found out Perry had nowhere to go. They enjoyed each other's company, however one day, when out for a walk, they were confronted by two mysterious figures. They demanded that the old man should hand Perry over, as they knew about his powers. The old man tried to protect Perry, but one of the figures used magic against them, and turned Perry into an umbrella. The pair were separated, however Perry managed to escape from the figures and attract the attention of a traveller, who took him to their shop. He remained in the shop for a while, until Toadsworth visited the shop and felt Perry's power, and then bought him. At the end of the dream it is revealed that Perry would like to reunite with the old man, but wants to stay with Princess Peach for a while.
