Gumboot is Greco the Departure Gecko's distant relative and takes over when Greco is on its annual day off. Gumboot is inexperienced and confused during the quit process, which makes for interesting scenes.

Appearance

Like Greco, their appearance is unknown. Gumboot has been shown to be both male and female at different times.

Quit messages

The standard exit animals Gumboot appears with are a giant spider, a giant bird and a chimera:

This is Greco's day off. Gumboot, Greco's distant relative, is here to take your information. Gumboot looks very confused and sticks the pencil in his ear. 

Gumboot smiles strangely. 
Gumboot says: Well. Uhhhh. That's it. 
Gumboot says: I... Umm. Hope.

You clamber about a giant spider. Gumboot starts to walk out the door and stands on one of its feet. You are flung from the back of the giant spider out through the door and float meaninglessly through space. You hope you will be seen again... 
Do come again!

Gumboot smiles strangely. 
Gumboot says: Well. Uhhhh. That's it. 
Gumboot says: I... Umm. Hope.

The giant bird grabs you in its talons and leaps out towards the now open door. 
Gumboot exclaims: Wait! I forgot to get your name! 
The bird pauses confused and you thud into the side of the door and tumble backwards out into space. You try not to notice the huge rents in your shoulder from where the talons ripped your flesh. Just a flesh wound. 
Do come again!

You are thrown towards the back of a chimera, but you completely fail to get a hold of the mane and fall onto the floor. The chimera steps backwards, crunching you with its foot. It then leaps through the door, leaving you hopping up and down and hoping that your mangled foot will recover. 
Do come again!
