He has an triangular head rounded at the sides and a long, bent nose similar in appearance to the Dosh family, but has a green body. He has dark blue eyes and thin eyebrows. His body is a darker green, whereas the head is a lighter green. He is one of the weevils to have different-colored body (most Bin families' members have the same color for body and head).
He possesses a special type of antenna called the Super Antenna (unavailable to the public currently, although it was available formerly). The first pair is yellow, the next orange and the top one above the two pairs is red.
His favorite room is the Editor's Room in Flem Manor, because that is where you write magazines, and he created new issues of Weevil Weekly here. He adores writing, and he has been spotted in the Editor's Room before by players.
His only known relative is Monty, the cousin of Flum as well as the former editor-in-chief of Flum's magazine. Monty has a different-colored body in comparison to Flum's. Flum is one of the characters to have a different-colored relative, as most Bin families' members have the same color and shape of body and head.
Weevil Weekly was one of the Bin's most popular issues. Per day, about some thousand views were already obtained. It also had twenty-two pages instead of twenty, the usual amount of pages a tycoon could have in a magazine.Weevil Weekly is on the Bin Weevils blog. He interviews weevils sometimes to get information about latest events, includes events that are going to be or are featured in the Binscape, features winners of competitions in blogs, and also displays fan work.
A wallpaper decoration has Flum in his childhood with Weevil Weekly.
He possesses a talented Bin Pet called Doodle. Doodle's pet status is Runner, so he is a speedy runner. Doodle can also juggle nine balls, evidently a skilled juggler, and he was adopted by Flum on October 10, 2009.
He has a similar color scheme to his owner. He has a dark green body, a similar color to the one of Flum's, and light green legs, like the color of Flum's head. He has orange eyelids, one of the colors on the Super Antenna.
He is an eager reporter and will always take notes and getting the latest scoop when an event is happening! He reports regularly. He has become the Bin's top celebrity and fans want to be interviewed by him or featured on his blog or magazine!
He is quite enthusiastic, and he is eager to meet players or feature them in his work. He is busy usually, but he will do his best to finish off his work and meet players. He is rarely negative, and he is inquisitive when an event occurs.
Flum already possessed his Super Antenna in his childhood, but it was a much smaller size. He said that he went to Mulch Island and explored it, discovering the chests at the Super Antenna Quest. He knew they were not ordinary chests. Opening them, he found the Super Gem and touched it, giving his antenna.
Flum obtained his widely-popular nickname Scribbles from his love of reporting and writing.
