Moominpappa is a born explorer and a keen adventurer. He considers himself to be very knowledgeable and rather an expert in many fields.
Nothing makes Moominpappa prouder than being the head of the family and he will do anything for them. Of course, he loves his life in Moominvalley, but is also curious and ready to try new things.
He is a dreamer who likes whisky and the company of friends. He enjoys pondering life’s big issues and often makes notes of his observations. Writing is very important to Moominpappa. He truly loves the sea and believes himself to be a skilled sailor and fisherman.
You can recognise Moominpappa from his top hat and walking stick. We meet Moominpappa in the first Moomin book, The Moomins and the Great Flood, and he tells us all about the great deeds of his youth in Moominpappa’s Memoirs.
