He is an average joe with occasional eccentric tendencies, but overall due to his average and generic nature, his mood tends to best represent what the rest of the generic town citizens are feeling during most events. However he does have his own odd habits which make him standout from the rest of the generic populace, such as his desire to wear a fake beard and dance and appear at random moments.
