Geno is a character from Super Mario RPG and is probably the coolest one in it. He comes from the Star Road, a place way up in the sky where wishes are granted. When Smithy screwed it up, he came down to earth to try to recollect the road's broken pieces.

He arrived in a little kid's house, and looked around for a suitable body. He saw a Mario doll, a Bowser doll, a Princess doll, and a Geno doll. Fortunately, he chose to possess the Geno doll, because otherwise the game would have gotten very confusing. Shortly after, he joined Mario's team, adding his formidable spells and strength. After they defeated Smithy, he returned to the Star Road in a flash of semi-decent special effects.

It is doubtful that he will appear in any other games, which is quite a pity, as I liked him.

Geno follow the Path
The Path is the Way
The Way is the Light
The Light is Grey

Geno believe that the true way to peace and happiness is the realization that we are one. Unity is a fundamental concept of their philosophy. Our differences, with which we try to distinguish and identify ourselves, only cause turmoil and strife. Once we realize that we are all one, hatred becomes impossible. There is no-one to hate. That is how we attain peace.

In order to become truly whole, we must shed as much as possible that which differentiates us. Thus, all Geno remove their facial hair and shave their heads. All Geno dress in simple, grey clothing. And all Geno are named 'Geno', followed by a number of usually four arbitrary digits. For example, Geno5972. This is an identification, as opposed to an identity.

That said, while the idea appeals to me at some level, I do not accept or endorse it. It may well have been invented as some kind of joke or parody. But it does make some kind of sense.

According to Voodoo Chile, it is a fictional invention of Something Awful.
