With an initial impression that's as shocking as the electricity they generate, Knuttes are very curious and enigmatic beings. It's widely agreed upon that they are an artificially created species, but it is presently unknown just how much their appearance is influenced by the habitat that they call their home. They move by levitating just slightly off of the ground, but cannot soar through the air proper. When generating large amounts of electricity by using their mechanical core, they scrunch up tightly before bouncing back into their characteristic shape, sharp bends and all. They melt down metal and let it form back together, which they sometimes allow to become part of their body instead of merely a little trinket.
In captivity they prove to be quite friendly. Young adults take a bit of time to adapt to being able to see the world around them, but decipher their usual surroundings and sensations very quickly. They aren't picky eaters and seem happy being fed just about anything. Their easygoing nature and odd appearance has caused them to be described as "lovable scrapheaps" by some researchers. The surface of their bodies—the wisps especially—can be hot at times, so it is advised to avoid touching one without sufficient protection.
