Introducing two of my newest characters. They're intended to be high on the 'aw' factor, so please excuse the fluff that will result. Kandi, on the left of the image, and Sapph on the right. They're my Neko boys. And yes, both boys. They were found as 'orphans' and raised by a human mage as pets - my Neko are smaller than humans, and speak to each other in chirps and mewing that just sounds like cutesy animal noises to anyone who doesn't learn Neko. From the mage's point of view they're sweet, fairly intelligent (but OBVIOUSLY not up to human standards if they can't speak), very innocent 'kittens'. They also have very sharp claws and teeth, take dislikes to people for no reason that the mage can see, and get up to all sorts of playful mischief. From the point of view of a Neko, they have the potential to be very dangerous if they're left untrained for much longer. At this point, they're both about ten years old. My Neko are very social creatures, and Kandi and Sapph are inseparable. If only one had been found and raised alone he would have grown up into a needy, bad-tempered, creature. Being with another kitten means these two have all the companionship they need, so they're growing up fairly normally despite not being in contact with any other Neko and considering themselves as belonging to their 'master'.
