    First of all I just wanted to say, this is a great idea! Seriously, great job. This will help so many kalon owners :000
    Now, onto my err.. Question I suppose. I have had this kalon for a while, and I still cannot find a name for him. I love him so much,
    I have everything planned out. Except his name. If you could give me some help, that'd be so handy! Thank you!

Okay, so this might be a big job but I am super duper stuck :")

I love Bailey to death, but I just can't find a job and personality I like? That seems to click?? I figured this would be the best place to ask for help, and bless you, this thread is already so helpful!!

yo! i'd be happy to help <3 personality and jobs n such are vv hard to work with (stereotypes don't help ;;v) do you have any general ideas? even things that you like in a kal vs what you don't, or occupations you know are or are not in the picture?

Since he looks like a pastry, I definitely want to stray away from jobs like baking, just because I feel that would fall into the stereotype category, lol! I do think he might do well in an artsy job - maybe an author?

And I originally tried to make him cool and calm but that just turned to arrogant and snarky, lol. I'm not good at having characters that are not nice? Or at least giving them those kinds of personalities? I want him to be kind but not like over the top sweet, y'know?

//thank you so much, by the way!!

save seedcakes : ahh ! i love his concept !
i find that drawing them in different emotions and roleplaying with kalons that might not seem to fit well with their personality helps a ton , or writing a story about them !
or just roleplaying a ton , but if you're not good at that art headcannoning helps !
doing memes , challenges , or even just small snips of a story helps a ton , but if none of that helps , you can come back and we'll all try to assist you more !
i hope you found this helpful , and i wish you connect with him better soon ! <3

Oki Doki, so I love the idea of this thread. It's so pure and sweet <3

@Seedcakes ;; something I always love to do before I go anywhere with changing a character or looking at other options is drawing them in situations. Some aspect of their life or their job! It really helps me refeel them, ya get me? Take this guy for example. He owns a flying ship to collect lightning. But on the off days, he likes to float around and feel like a bird!
@Happysparrow ;; Oh man, Bailey is the cutest. Have you put any thought to a character that tries so hard to be mean but fails at it? Invites them to a birthday party, and tell them it starts at 11:10... but it really starts at 11. Haha!! Or give them one Ice cube when they ask for a few. Jokes on you!! Like instead of passive aggressive, it's passive progressive. I don't know if that's too far away from what you were thinking from him but I figured I'd mention it because it would be a real hoot to rp! 8D
@Sketchiimutt :: he looks like a Greyson to tell you the truth. Or a Tarrence. Or Tracie.

So I also have some kiddos I need help naming. Two Munchkins.

She can't grow until the 31st, but I'm much better at naming when I have the adult ref. For those of you who prefer the kit ref; here it is.
She is from an OOC breeding, and she's going to be a native Hawaiian or an islander of some sort. I actually wouldn't be adverse to her being in a fantasy set of islands- but not like Moana style. I just figured with her water-color style and flower shine. But I want something cute and really rolls off the tongue. But I have no idea what would go with her.

But then there's This guy and his Kit Reference. He's going to be so sassy and run an underground freak show. He is a munchkin, but is the ring leader. I want him to wear a cute little suit vest and a top hat and everything. But before I do that I need to figure out his name. Right now I've just taken up calling him Mr.Tall, because he's so little. And he's going to be pretty whimsical and cool until someone comments on his height. Then he'll be pretty frank, but yeah. He has great patience until it comes to disrespect. He does not take that lightly.

author sounds rlly fitting imo, it's an interesting way to direct from it! maybe go into detail with what kind of books they end up writing?

but i gotcha! meaner kals can be a little difficult if you're not too keen on that kind of angle. h m
you could keep that thought but mellow it down a bit? calm and a bit nonchalant, a rlly cool-headed demeanor. seen as kind-hearted, but often lost in their own work. they enjoy their work, and are kinda distant because of the whimsy the position entails. i seriously just came up with this so it's messy  , but is that going a bit in the territory of stuff you're lookin for?

(yo it's no problem <33)
