4. Elf

“As a baby Buddy crawled into Santa’s bag at an orphanage and lands himself an the North Pole with an Elf for a father and a job, but never knew the truth. Until one day he over hears and discovers he’s a human, from there he sets off on a quest to find his father who never knew he existed”.
