|K is the eldest prince, destined to one day become king. His family's monarchy has struggled to retain power from threatening rebellions in the kingdom throughout his upbringing. He has witnessed many dangerous and troubling events, including the abduction of his little sister. These events have led him to become somewhat cold and selfish despite his young age. He remains emotionally distant not because he does not care for his loved ones, but because he recognizes that without gaining control and power, he cannot protect them. He is very clever, and is frequently underestimated due to his age and appearance.|

Traits: Astute, Arrogant, Protective
At first, I was very tempted to make K a traditional baby character: innocent, naive, goofy, energetic. After all, he's incredibly adorable. However, that type of character is limited in terms of development, so I decided to go in the opposite direction of my instinct. My vision for K's character is complicated - I want him to appear almost unlikable at first- somewhat spoiled, arrogant, impatient. Then, after learning the reasons that led to his bitterness and vengeful attitude, I want the reader to empathize with him and root for his success. Then, even in success, I want him to experience inner conflict that challenges the reader's conception of his character.
For example: He assumes his sister has perished. What if he finds that she is still alive, but that rescuing her would require him to set aside his desire for power and revenge? What if his sister, having been raised by members of the rebellion, joined the resistance when she came of age? Are his priories really placed on her well being, or has his vision become clouded by notions of revenge and a desire for power?

My Neo Life
I enjoy creating comics for the Neopian times, participating in the Beauty contest + Random contest + Poetry contest, avatar hunting (293 so far), making screenies, creating my screenie tutorial (in progress), customizing my pets, and kad feeding. I've recently come back from a hiatus, but before my break I had great group of active friends in the screenie community and on the Help chat.
Why I'm looking for a UC baby kougra
I have been playing neopets for about 14 years, since I was 7! Back then the only way I knew how to make NP was by playing flash games that I was honestly pretty bad at. Despite the fact that I never managed to save more than 60k, I'd hoped to one day earn enough for a baby neopet. I got a little older and a little better at playing games, and eventually saved up and painted my first baby neopet. Now I have seven!
A doodle of some of my babies: Olao, Waffie, Vald, and Bee
The artwork of UC babies draws out a nostalgia of a time when the idea of obtaining a baby pet was a dream: a goal that I never thought I'd actually be able to accomplish. It reminds me of when Neo was prosperous and mysterious to me in my young age. I enjoy this site now in other ways as an adult, but there's something to be said for the amount of inspiration I drew from this site in my childhood. When I was young I'd run around the park fantasizing that I was a baby kougra in some sort of hilarious Lion King crossover. I drew the same characters over and over again in my screenies, slowly teaching myself how to draw and advancing from stick figures to where I am now. I've come up with lots of character stories about my pets, which I'm too embarrassed to share online but that I enjoy thinking about.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that to me, UC baby kougras represent those things about my childhood that I remember fondly. My overactive imagination, my passion for digital art, my geeky side that likes to think of cool stories. Those are important aspects of myself that I don't get to embrace a lot in real life.

Story: Acepte's deformity has led him to resent his community, but his pessimistic outlook was challenged when he was offered kindness by a Baby Gelert named Beiila who was able to look past his appearance and see the hurting neopet inside. His name means "He accepted" in spanish, which can initially be interpreted as "he accepted his place as a monster", but can also be thought of "He wants to be accepted" once he meets Beiila

Story:Inspired by Beauty and the Beast, Beiila befriends the Mutant Gelert, Acepte, and shows him how to find beauty in the world around him. "Bee" was the star of my screenie page for 8 years!

Story: As a mortal, Feiyoer was an malicious Neopet. He became fixated on a kacheek named Chubumi after sneaking into one of her ice-skating performances, and proclaimed that he loved her with all his heart. He pursued her affection by stealing things for her, lying about his life to impress her, etc. Feiyoer eventually planned a dangerous and elaborate proposal which accidentally led to the couple's demise. The judgement of his life deemed him "bad", and he was transformed into a demon - eternally separated from his love.

Her innocence prevented her from seeing his destructive behavior, and she eventually perished in an accident along with Feiyoer. The judgement of her life was deemed "good", and she was reborn as an angel- eternally separated from her love.
