Clover is a sassy, lazy, but helpful friend of Sofia. His view on life is very direct and to-the-point. After living in the village and working hard to find meager amounts of food, he saw an opportunity in befriending the new princess. He was able to communicate with Sofia through the Amulet of Avalor, and he gave her a deal that he and his other animal friends would assist Sofia and help her with everyday tasks, as long as she provided food for them in return.
Quickly taking a liking to her, Clover and Sofia soon became good friends. However, they didn't start living together until they cleaned up some bad habits of theirs. Clover helps Sofia by making her life in the castle much easier. Clover always encourages Sofia, and he shows much confidence in her. Such as, when she expressed doubt over whether she could join the school derby team (as a princess), Clover responded in outrage, telling her she could do whatever she put her mind to. He is also very willing to accompany her in danger, even if he is scared himself, such as when he went with her to Princess Vivian's castle and to the trolls' cave. He is very defensive of her and her friends.
Despite his helpfulness, Clover is very aware of his own creature comforts, and his idea of a good time is long naps and big meals. He doesn't like to be cuddled or dressed up, and he hates pink bows. He is also afraid of fire, dangerous places, and heights. He has sensitive ears, and can be messy. In addition to Sofia, Robin, Mia, Whatnaught, and Crackle, Clover is friends with many animals, both wild and tamed. He dislikes those who dislike animals. He can become greedy and forget his fortune if he is too pampered.
Role in the Series
Clover makes his debut appearance while Sofia is on her way to Enchancia Castle. He follows her there. The next day, he wakes her up and helps her get ready when she screams and Baileywick shoos him out. The next day, Clover appears to do the same thing and is shocked that Sofia can understand him. He then tells Sofia that the reason woodland creatures have been helping Princesses for centuries is that they want food which Sofia happily obliges. He later helps Sofia defeat Wormwood. Clover then tricks Wormwood into telling Sofia where the counterspell book is.
In "The Mystic Isles: A Hero for the Hoodwinks" He witnesses Sofia in action and then being rewarded. He says he can be a hero, too but Robin and Mia mock the idea. Sofia kindly gives him her pie and states Clover will always be her hero. After Sofia leaves to the Mystic Isles for an assignment Clover goes to the place where The Leafsong Festival is held to practice his heroic skills. Suddenly two hoodwinks appear and after Clover finds out they have a problem, he offers to help despite Whatnaught's warnings. As he lacks protector skills, wanting rewards and briefly being scared a purple hoodwink does not believe Clover when he lies about being a protector. His suspicions are confirmed when he talks with Sofia.
Meanwhile, Clover finds out the problem: three wee sprites were having a party in a tree. After a long time of thinking, Clover tells them to have their party with the Rhompkins. After they leave, the hoodwinks praise Clover and give him three pies and a song. Sofia also came by. Suddenly they hear noises: the Rhompkins have left their home because the wee sprites started having fun there. After learning what Clover did, Sofia scolds the bunny that he did not solve the problem he just moved it somewhere else. Sofia, Clover and the bunny's hoodwink biggest fan go together on the Isle of Wee Sprites. Everyone was gone, except for one sprite who actually caused the problem: multiplying nasty Badgerbirds. Clover was still jumping at conclusions using a branch with leaves he traps the birds in the cottage only to find out the birds will be multiplying more.
He confesses to his fan: he is not a protector nor hero just a plain old bunny. He watches his fan discarding his bunny accessories and leaving heartbroken. Deciding to repair things, he decides to listen to Sofia. This time they manage to trap the birds in Sofia's protector cape. The hoodwink who landed too a helping hand he praised Clover putting on back his accessories. After the problem is solved and everyone is happy Clover admits only Sofia is a real protector but the hoodwinks named Clover their protector and gave him a medal of honor.
