Creeper is intelligent and fiendish, but is slightly afraid of the Horned King due to his mistreatment of him, and happy with the Horned King being killed. Creeper is abused by the Horned King and the human henchmen like LeFou. The Horned King blames Creeper for things and will choke him when he thinks Creeper isn't doing what he wants him to do. Althougth he loved serving the Horned King, he hated his master.
