Pontus (Pontus Clipground-Appledrond), born 1997 is a childhood friend of Tony and also his neighbor.
The Early Years Edit
During the early years, Pontus was playing with Tony and the others on the street. He often vanished in the air when he played with Tony and was known for not wearing socks. Even during the winter, he was barefoot in the shoes. He wanted to be a close friend of Tony, but due to Tony's diagnosis and fear for other childrens parents, he choosed to only meet Pontus outside. (Although, Pontus was in Tonys house during his birthdays parties). Thanks to Tony finding a computer and chosing to stay inside, he and Pontus quickly losed their contact, although they stayed as friends. He was also the leader when the kids one day decided to steel strawberrys from the kindergarten down the street. Tony was guarding the place and was told to scream if he saw anyone pass. But due to his fear of being punished, he left the scene. Pontus also gave Tony his comics and introduced him to Beetle Bailey. It was Pontus who persuaded Tony to go through the fallen christmas trees, wich caused Tony's eye to get hurt by a tree limb with rat poison. Tony was close to loose his sight at the left eye but was saved from it. It's unknown if Pontus ever learned about Tony's accident.
After Tony walks out, Pontus was seen alongside an unknown unnamed boy in 2006 when Tony walked out to photograph. Pontus and the unnamed boy has been seen in the movies Tony created at his computer. In 2007, Pontus and his siblings Nellie and Max was invited to Tonys Halloween party. Pontus didn't come (he was busy) but his siblings came. In 2009, they talked to each other with Skype and nearly fixed their old friendship, but it ended there. He was also seen skating past Tony when he was photograping.
In 2010, his look was completly changed. His hair turned red and he begun to go through the teenage process. He was seen in Tonys New Schoolife. He still remanied nice to Tony and said hello when ever they met. In 2011, Tony learned that he had his own blog where the created funny videos. In 2012, it was reaveled that he was a smoker (just like his mom) and that his teenager habits still was strong. He also knows Tonys classmate Benjamin.
