CatNap’s temporary temple was probably used to call upon a higher power—prototype. His pose seems to be offering himself up in prayer, asking him to take any action while the protagonist moves towards the Play House.

CatNap and his temple were discovered inside Restricted arearight before you walk in the back door of Playhouse. He is standing on an inaccessible road, just to the left. CatNap disappears when you drop onto the metal platform below. But what does the temple mean?

Ollie explains that CatNap created a temple to worship the Archetype. It has not been confirmed whether the temple was built before or after the Happy Hour events. He believed he owed Prototype his life and thus devoted himself to Prototype’s main goal of escaping Playcare. He believes that Happy Hour saved the Orphanage and the children after the murder of all the staff of the Greater Body Initiative.

The tape is clear Poppy’s Playtime: Chapter 3 and the ARG leading up to the release of the latest chapter revealed CatNap’s backstory. CatNap (aka Experiment 1188) was originally an orphan named Theodore Grambell, who lives in the Home Sweet Home orphanage. His “Imaginary Friend” (Prototype) influenced him to unlock a maintenance door, presumably to free the orphans and experiments from the Orphanage, but His attempt to escape electrocuted him.

Due to his injuries, Theo was transformed into CatNap, tasked with keeping the orphans trapped in the Home Sweet Home Orphanage. Use his red smoke To put the kids to sleep, the Greater Body Initiative can easily check on the kids without any problems.

While Theo’s transformation meant the loss of his humanity, his belief in the Archetype grew stronger. It is then displayed in Poppy’s Playtime: Chapter 3 that other members of the Smiling Critters (including DogDay) were killed by CatNap for disobedience and were called “heretics.” But the Archetype’s influence cannot reach CatNap’s prayers at the temple, for the Archetype is not imaginary as the lower-level staff of the Greater Body Initiative believes.

Instead, CatNap simply views Prototype as a god and will strike down anyone who does not share his beliefs.
