He hasn’t revealed whether he went to college or not.

His most-viewed video on YouTube is his “Day In The Life of GoodTimes With Scar – A Disabled Twitch Streamer And YouTube” – he posted the video in March 2018 and it has totaled over three million views. He is popular for his landscape building and works hard to make many artistic and large builds such as his Pirate Island and the giant tree that was being rained upon – he created these during Season Six. All his avid fans know about his favourite “Howling” song by Lupus Nocte.


Scar uploaded his first video on Hermitcraft’s season 4 server on 25 February 2016, entitled “Minecraft 1.9: Getting My Survival Tent House Started – Hermitcraft Season 4 -Ep 1.” He created close to 86 videos on this server before he proceeded to the fifth season. His second season of Hermitcraft saw him building his Starter Base – naming it ‘hobbit hole’ – before he created Hermit City, Lore, and ConVex.

Scar subsequently became a wizard in the seventh season, as a result of his Infinity Portal, which he had built during the previous season. He created a Starter Base, a large snail named Larry, and shared it with other hermits including his friends Grian and MumboJumbo. He then created the Main Base (Scarx) before teaming up with Grian for Head Games.

He proceeded to the Mayoral Campaign, then the Upside Down, where he dug through Grian’s tunnel. He moved on to season 7 and completed, and he is currently in season eight. He had parted ways with Grian and MumboJumbo (however, they later met again).

He is good friends with his fellow YouTuber and Hermit Grian, despite the fact that they are constantly arguing and share different opinions in most of their storylines.
