Their result for The Discworld Character Test ...

Captain Carrot

You scored 29% snark, 21% bad-assitude, 41% guts, and 44% nerdhood! (And if this doesn't add up to 100%, blame OKCupid, not me.)

Technically a dwarf, Carrot Ironfoundersson was adopted by dwarfs but is in fact human. This made growing up difficult, especially since dwarves are smaller than the typical human. Nobby Nobbs, as always is an exception to this rule. Carrot's adopted father sent him to Ankh-Morpork to join the Ankh-Morpork City Watch in Guards! Guards!. He is an exemplary policeman, but can be seen by others as too polite. In any one else it would be suspicious, with Carrot however it is sincere. He has an old sword, and a funny birthmark.

Carrot is the most consciously and conscientiously law-abiding citizen in Ankh-Morpork. When he arrived, he brought with him the book The Laws and Ordinances of the Cities Ankh and Morpork, a very old book that once belonged to a retired Ankh-Morporkian Watchman. Having been brought up in dwarf culture, Carrot takes everything literally and believes in obeying rules. The old Watchman's descendant told Carrot about upholding justice, so Carrot enthusiastically enforced the laws as detailed in the old book, the contents of which was unknown to everyone, even old-time Watchmen. That got him into some trouble with the city government. Yet, somehow, he managed to bring morale to the Watch just as Lady Sybil Ramkin did. Carrot is now Captain of the combined Ankh-Morpork City Watch; formally he would be called "Captain Ironfoundersson", but most people call him "Captain Carrot".

"Most people" can be taken to mean both "most people who know him" and "most people in Ankh-Morpork". Carrot walks the patrol routes even on his days-off, he talks to everyone and remembers everyone's name, face, family, business, and so on. It is said that he reads the register of taxpayers, for fun. Sometimes a tax-evader makes claims, in Carrot's presence, about having paid his taxes and therefore entitled to the Watch's protection, Carrot will respond by saying that he hasn't seen the name in the taxpayers' register, perhaps the good citizen has been too busy and forgotten to fill out tax forms, and Carrot would bring some along soon. Carrot genuinely thinks everyone, even the boy thugs in the street gangs, is decent and good underneath all the Ankh-Morpork prejudices and violence. For some strange reason, probably what Sgt. Colon calls krisma, people find that they want to meet Carrot's expectations and do what he says. It is a good thing that Carrot wants what's best for everyone, and has far fewer prejudices than most people; otherwise, he might become a ruthless despot forcing his ways on others. He also knows the cultures and languages of many immigrant groups in Ankh-Morpork, and politics and geography of places as far as Überwald.
