* ''Literature/AManCalledOve'': Ove is the poster child for this trope. To the point that he doesn't even need an alarm clock, because he's always woken up at the same time, every day, his whole life.

* Klaus, in ''FromEroicaWithLove'', is as much a Creature of Habit as being an international spy will allow him to be, bordering on ScheduleFanatic.

* Skalman from ''{{Bamse}}''. One of his inventions is a special alarm clock which rings when it's time for a meal or a nap. Come naptime, he goes to sleep as soon as he hears the ring, even if he's in the middle of something adventurous.

Indeed, the medieval characters mentioned are just one type of example, but the description spends enough time on it that that point gets lost. Tweaking to fix this.
They tend to be a source of puzzlement for more dynamic characters...or indeed, the audience themselves when ValuesDissonance comes into play. Many cultures maintain that change is a good thing, and at the very least people should be ambitious and adaptable - who wants to stay stuck in a rut for all their lives? Particularly if the Creature of Habit is a pig-farmer in medieval England, or a peasant in the feudal age. Surely they would be glad to get out of there?

1) These lifestyles are being used as an example. 2) Values dissonance means that the values of the show don't match up with the values of an audience; thus, this is accurate.
If offered the chance of change, the Creature of Habit may listen politely, be thoroughly uninterested, or even snap at the lack of respect for their viewpoint, but they will almost always decline. A higher calling or moral dilemma may get them to leave their old existence behind, but only reluctantly, and if possible they will return to the life they loved best when the crisis has passed.

In-universe, this can cause a clash between characters who love change and adventure, and those who resent the whole experience.

That's not what Values Dissonance means. And either way, this trope isn't really about servitude.
