Org the ugly was usually angry.
He stood up stiffly and glared at the sky.
He raised his slimy fists and beat them against his huge, hairy chest.
“I feel just like a dark sky!” Org shouted.
“I haven’t seen him this angry in a long time,” said Org’s wife to the cook.
Org leaned against a tree trunk and thought about how mean and ugly and mad he felt.
Suddenly, he wrapped his arms around the tree. He pulled and tore at it until it ripped out of the earth, roots and all.

Lincoln has black hair and a wrinkled face. He looks older than he is, and he appears deeply sad until he starts talking. He has a particular, awkward way of walking.
He is warm and friendly towards others, and others—or at least this reporter—seem to react with fondness and admiration toward him.
Lincoln seems to care about and thrive on his interactions with others; he seems less concerned with his physical appearance.
The author quotes the reporter as saying when Lincoln interacts with people, he loses his sorrowful appearance and becomes bright with "a winning smile," "keen intelligence," "genuine kindness," and "true friendship."
I'm not sure yet what he thinks or says.
