Arthur Timothy Read[1] is an average aardvark in Elwood City, currently attending Elwood City High School. He is the son of David and Jane Read, and the brother of D.W. (Winny) and Kate Read. As a third grader, Arthur's defining characteristic was his large, round glasses, and he was otherwise known as average and boring. As a twelfth grader, Arthur sports a longer hairstyle and no longer wears glasses. He seems generally calm and level-headed.

Sometime between third and twelfth grade, Arthur dated Francine Frensky. Currently, he is dating Sue Ellen Armstrong.

DescriptionEdit

Arthur is an aardvark who has a massive, egg-shaped head, much like his father David. In elementary school, Arthur wore a nerdy sweater and large, Harry-Potter-esque glasses. Later, before high school, Arthur's hair grew out into a sort of mullet. During high school, Arthur sports a short-sleeved V-neck shirt and no longer wears glasses.

BiographyEdit

Arthur43 Also see Arthur Read on the Arthur Wiki!
Arthur Read was born to David and Jane Read on May 25,[1] 2006[2] in Elwood City.

During elementary school, Arthur attended Lakewood Elementary, where he met many of his classmates in Nigel Ratburn's third grade class. He was best friends with Buster Baxter (now Baxter-Mills) until the pair "broke-up" because they were different species.[3] At one point, Arthur strangled his babysitter's boyfriend to death out of jealousy.[4] Arthur's longtime friend Francine Frensky was his date to the 2015 Lakewood Prom[5], and their friendship apparently blossomed into a romantic relationship sometime after.[6] Eventually, Arthur's parents separated due to his mother's extramarital affair with Ed Crosswire.[7]

By high school, Arthur and Francine's relationship had long died out. In twelfth grade, Arthur began dating Sue Ellen Armstrong after he found out that she had feelings for him by reading her diary.[8]
