Eep Crood is the female protagonist of The Croods.
Role in film
Eep is the nineteen-year old eldest daughter of Grug and Ugga Crood, the oldest grandchild of Gran, and the older sister of Sandy and Thunk. Eep hates the Cave they live in and wants to explore the outside world. However, Grug highly disagrees with her, and constantly tries to convince her to stay away from the outside world. When an earthquake causes the Croods to leave their cave, it feels like a dream come true: for Eep, that is. The Croods eventually meet Guy, who Eep takes a liking to because of his new ideas. This is a nightmare for her father.
It has also been said that Eep is, next to her father, the best hunter of the family.
Eep is shown to be imaginative and extremely curious, and believes that there is a world beyond her family's cave and hunting grounds, which proves to be true. Eep is extremely strong, with cat-like movements. She is an excellent hunter, second best to her dad, if not better. She likes to stay outside as much as possible, and she hates the cave. In her profile, Eep is said to like 'running, jumping, and chasing mammoths.' Eep is constantly arguing with her father about her own safety: Eep believes she can take care of herself, while Grug thinks the exact opposite. Around Guy, she acts rather shy and bashful. When nervous or irritated, Eep is shown to pull on her hair.
