What's the story behind the gnome mascot?

Is there a story behind this guy? I've seen him in a few places in dropbox and I'm curious why he seems to be the de-facto dropbox mascot.

This is the Dropbox Paper Wizard! 

The character was created in a series to provide fun stickers for Dropbox Paper comments. 

Here is a Dropbox Blog Post about the comments, which you will see more pictures of the Paper Wizard.

The full set can also be found on the creator's page here.

Literally, one of my favorite Dropbox creations!

Hey @flange, thanks for joining our Community!

While I'm not aware if there's a particular reason our design team chose this specific character for our website's UI, I'd love to believe it's because we consider ourselves as magicians, helping with improving your everyday's flow and with any technical hiccup that might come along the way. 

 

If that ain't magic, then, what is?  

 

Joking aside, we've asked the team internally and we'll keep you updated once we have more information. 

 

Thanks for raising this!
