You know, ironically, I fretted over Lemos because I worried that he would be TOO snarky, but people?? love him??? LOL I tell you, as a creator, I worry for nothing sometimes. One of the best?! That's SUCH a compliment omg. LOL YES, the very careful distinction.
Nova was someone I worried about too. She's not a re-nameable MC, she's got short hair and she's got such fire that I feel like OP isn't really good for self-inserting BUT I really wanted to write her story. I'm glad you like the characters!
Thank you for the support anyway! Comments like these really keep me going so I really appreciate it. ^^
Last but not least, I thought Ascha would be the character that gave everyone side-character syndrome. How surprising that it's Pharaj XDDDD. Thanks again for the kind words!
