S character

Why does the bond angle increase as the S-character of a hybrid orbital increases?

As the S Character increases, the number of electron densities that exist around a central atom also increases and to avoid repulsion and to increase the stability, the electrons are arranged at a greater angle.

What does s character even mean?

The s character is the contribution of sigma type bond in hybridization, the more the s-character a bond has, the stronger and shorter the bond is.

wait I'm confused, are the s characters like the lone electrons in the central atom which make the bend/push on the attached atoms???
