Why is Devil-Cat terrified of watermelons?

When Devil-Cat was a tiny baby, he was left alone in the nest while his mother went to a meeting. Their nest happened to be in a watermelon tree. There was an old over-ripe watermelon on a branch overhanging the place he slept, and unfortunately it looked somewhat like the face of an old leathery monster. Poor little devil-cat lay cowering for over six hours thinking he was about to be eaten by the monster. Ever since then, he’s been scared of watermelons.

Why did Devil-Cat become a criminal?

Devil-Cat’s dad was strict and seemed to be consistently disappointed with his only son. Devil-cat’s mom and seventeen sisters were constantly doting and fussing over him. Researchers have not been sure why he turned to the dark side. Perhaps to please his father? Perhaps to escape from the cloying over-protectiveness of his mom and sisters?
