I revamped Empanada Cookie and I decided to make him Rose Cookie’s brother! He loves life threatening challenges and he took up bullfighting to sate his thirst for danger. Rose usually preforms before his matches to hype up the crowd and she honestly gets more attention than he does. Empanada doesn’t really care about that since he only wants to have fun with his bulls and really supports his sister’s dancing. He’s an approachable guy, but his interest isn’t kept for long unless the topic at hand suits his danger-loving interests.
Disclaimer (that I cannot believe I have to include): I’m Hispanic (Chicanx, my parents are both from Mexico) and I know bullfighting originates from Spain and empanadas and Rose’s dance style are from Argentina. Let me just say, Hispanic cultures all share from one another and bullfighting is something that’s done in Mexico, we eat empanadas in Mexico, and we also like various dance styles (including tango) in Mexico. That being said, these characters are cookies…Empanada calling Raspberry a “pendejo” in that doodle doesn’t mean anything, and pendejo is used in a variety of Spanish speaking cultures. I didn’t make him with the intention of him being Mexican…just Hispanic. Before you try to explain cultures to someone, maybe check out theirs before speaking.
