Micanor is a shy thirteen year old who lives with his aunt and his brother and sister in the village of Galette Chambon. Micanor and his siblings are very appreciative that their aunt took them in when their mother disappeared, but they feel like they are a burden on her. She tries to make money as a vendor to support her family, but it has really been a struggle, especially with recent increases in danger and food prices. It would be so very helpful to all of them if Micanor and his brother and sister were in school. Recently his brother and sister recently got sponsored, so Micanor prays daily that he will get a sponsor soon too. Micanor enjoys playing with his friends, going to church, and studying lessons. His favorite subject is French and when he grows up, he wants to become a teacher.
