Some OC Updates Updated a few OCs. Namely the ones here, but a few others as well (mostly backstory stuff).

Adjusted atlen (Kat's species) proportions. Tried to make them seem like a species who would have lived in trees in ancient times. Kat likes to wear human clothes. She doesn't care that they aren't really designed for her small shoulders :U

Removed the human-like hair from capraeth (Vivvia and Tennio's species). Vivvia now wears wigs, though I should note it's a bit more like wearing a hat for her than anything else. A very stylish hat. That looks like human hair.
Tennio and Vivvia's backstories are less black/white/overtly-stereotypical-"religious". This was originally because my OCs were split into two factions, the side Vivvia and Tennio's village hated was the side Vivvia was secretly on, while Tennio fully believed in the side their village supported (haha the irony and all that jazz).
So capraeth culture no longer sees albinos as "saintly" and melanistic capraeth as inherently evil. Tennio now has a better life (albeit, still doesn't have a lot of friends </3).
THAT BEING SAID pomeii culture (Saewin and Zyre's species) now see monochromatic (greyscale) pomeii in a bad light (eg Saewin). So Saewin has Tennio's backstory now. Yeah for him! (I'm a horrible person)

Maezui's eye changes are based on his current state. If he's sentient and cognizant of his actions that's his "normal" state, this is how he is most of the time. If he's lost his sentience and acting like a cat (or whatever species he's currently shifted into) his eyes are in their "wild/feral" state. This doesn't happen a lot anymore, but occasionally he slips when he spots a laser pointer or something. After a few seconds he'll snap out of it. "???" is a secret =P It's based on a recent change in his backstory which I'm really excited about so I'm saving it for when I finally make a damn comic for these guys.

@Pure umbreon: Well he's a cute little cat now, but he can shape-shift into stuff much more/less cute/little ;D

Yay, the OCs are back! :D I like Kat's new look, and all the backstories and whatnot, and there just had to be one character discriminated against for no reason, didn't there? XD

Anyhow, I'm super excited for whenever this comic comes out, I'm sure it'll be awesome :D

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Yeah! Too long of a break. I'll probably be doing more sketches of them besides comics for a bit since I really need to XD And thank you!

But yeah, byproduct of the trouble between striking a balance between a "realistic" and "cartoon-y levels of happy" world. This world (thinking of calling it Altara? WIP) is quite accepting of individuals considering the variation between all the different species...and the recent demise of 90% of the world's population and 99.99% of the world's landmass...so yeah, you better work together and survive XD That being said, the pomeii discrimination has a cultural reason (albeit, from an outsider's perspective not a justified one). Monochromatic pomeii have a different bond to their familiar, which are a big deal to pomeii, so any change to that is off-putting to most pomeii (ex. Shade is a species pomeii can't normally bond with). That being said, non-pomeii aren't going to notice because pomeii can be any color known.

And thank you! :D

@Pokemontrainergigi: Yay! :D And you're welcome :)

Wait wait wait...99.99% of the world's landmass was destroyed and 90% of the world's population just recently died?! What the heck hap - no, no no, I'm not going to ask, I will wait and see. But yeah, I can understand how that might tend to make people forget their prejudices and work together, at least for a little while. I sort of understand the pomeii discrimination (not that I agree with it, I just understand it). It's awesome to see all the thought you put into this :)

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Years ago, I was having a block creating this idea. It took me too long to realize my world building problem was I wasn't doing any world building! Just characters! So I did some thinking of how a world could affect those living within it (Game of Thrones is a great example) and am slowly piecing that together C:

As a reminder, I want this to be a "grounded-but-overall-happy-toned" comic. ...I'm a terrible person. :D

@Pokemontrainergigi: Yes, the world is always an important part XD It sounds awesome :)

And no worries, those are the kinds of stories I like best anyways XD
