He has several friends and has a sister name Thea, two cousins named Trap and Dino, a nephew named Benjamin,a grandfather named William and more.His sister Thea is a very adventurous mouse, but Geronimo is not. He is not a "sports mouse", either.

Personality Edit

Geronimo 2
Geronimo refers to himself as a "scaredy-mouse", as he is easily frightened, but he tries not to show it. He is shown to dislike outdoor events, such as adventuring and travelling, and anything that involves a large amount of exercise, and he dislikes sports for the same reasons.

However, he can also be brave at times, like at the Creepyfur castle, when he encounters the frightening things inside. He is also kind, and has a pure heart, proved when he weighted his heart and it showed to be lighter than a feather. He can make up his lack of physical strength with his mind.
