I have seen The Office multiple times, and I know how Creed's story comes to an end with the police, but I can't figure out what he actually is, as both a character and a person.
He is often saying things that are completely nonsensical like, "Hey I know you! I met you in the parking lot earlier!", etc.
Does any part of his story actually explain why he is seemingly forgetful, outside of just being old? He often forgets Andy/Jim/Pam's names, and doesn't seem to be coherent during normal conversation. Is this attributed to his encounter with the military/LSD? Is he homeless (he mentions a soup kitchen)?
I fear that this character may just be the "catch-all" for nonsense in the story, but I'd love for him to make sense as a character, if that is possible.
