Sticky (Спичка, Spichka) is a young orphan who lives alone in the north of town. He knows the layout of the Town better than anyone and knows many of its secrets. 


Sticky is a very independent child, spending most of his time exploring the town and hunting for treasure. He regularly climbs into and investigates old buildings, and seems to always find what he's looking for.[1] However, once he finds something, he quickly loses interest and moves on.

Shortly before the Second Outbreak, Sticky became focused on catching the elusive Albino, which he believes to be the source of the plague. Eventually, he develops an obsession with finding the creature that borders on mania. He is dismissive of his personal safety when searching, choosing to wander along the Steppe at dangerous times.

Both Khan and Notkin respect him, but Sticky considers them both to be arrogant, preferring to be alone. Sticky is rarely involved in children's groups, for which he is called a traitor.


My path was called 'The Last Vampire'. I would have surely caught the weird Albino if it not for the plague.
Day 12
Following the "Termite Ending", Capella states that Sticky will become one of the rulers of the town, controlling the commerce and trade of the town. He will ensure that the town always has enough.

His associated color will be "amber."

Portrait Quotes

Now that's what I call a good thievin'. A nimble lad, he is. Snatchin' a ring off your finger like there's no tomorrow, knowin' all them ins n' outs everywhere... and the lockpicks he makes. Man can always recognize the hand of a true master, dontcha think? I'm totally makin' the lad my minion as soon as I get my hands on him. He's a snappish pup all right, all bark 'n bite both, tryin' to keep away from old Bad Grief... But who knows—perhaps one day he'll be the heir to the throne of the King of Thieves... it's anyone's guess if I'm really gonna do it.
Bad Grief's take on him
That cryptic creature that he had encountered in some desolated corner of the town has really changed him. It seems to have turned into a mania. The main goal of his adventures used to be a nonexistent hidden treasure, but now he's going crazy for that longneck monster. He's positive that it is the last vampire...
Capella's take on him
