Well technically he can't read minds, he can only project his own thoughts :p So if people wanna speak to him they have to do so out loud, unless they can also project their thoughts
Also I'm aware that he shouldn't technically be able to see or hear either but having a mute, deaf, and blind character would be a bit much so I'm just gonna suspend disbelief in that regard haha

If Stina’s here to fill in the human I’m good 👍

Okay working on my character. I've got his design and I love him, now the hard part is figuring out his personality -_-

EDIT: here's my new bastard man I hope he has your approval

Name: Kalavhan Vernet
Age (17-20): 20
Monster or Human?: Monster
Appearance: He stands at an even seven feet tall, the skin of his upper body dark grey in colour with shimmery gold markings running up his arms, down his back, and across his chest. His lower body is covered in dark red hair, his feet ending in cloven hooves, and a long whip-like tail protrudes from the small of his back. Of course all of this is relatively tame compared to the truly shocking aspect of his appearance: his head resembles the skull of a deer, antlers and all. Finally he has a habit of not wearing clothes, seeing as all the important bits are covered by fur.
Personality: Many people believe Kalavhan to be quiet and reserved when they first meet him; shy even. This couldn't be further from the truth. Kalavhan is mute, due to the structure of his face (although he is able to communicate in other ways, which I will explain below), and once he is able to communicate with someone he is talkative and curious. As well he has a habit of being very wild with his gestures, often waving around his arms and tail to better convey his emotions and expressions where his face cannot. He also has an almost supernatural ability to be able to fall asleep anywhere at any time.
Skills: He is somewhat of a telepath, although he can only implant his thoughts into the minds of others in order to communicate. This ability gets stronger the closer he is to someone on an emotional level: his family he can commune with from across a city, whereas he'd have to be touching someone he'd just met in order to 'speak' to them. (I'm also imagining that the monsters have a form of sign language as there are probably others who aren't able to speak, so he knows that as well).
Other: As per his personality he is curious about humans and their world, and wants to know as much about them as he can. ((Forgive me for this section not having a lot of detail I can't think of anything else atm-_-))
Wendigo inspiration much Rai?😁
Also, who gets the pop culture reference I put in Oz's bio?

Name: Lina Fyfe
Age (17-20): 20
Monster or Human?: Human
Appearance: Lina is a very petite girl, slender and just 4"9 without her heels (which she is almost always wearing). She has electric blue eyes and silky blonde hair falls just to her shoulders, with bangs cut perfectly straight across her brow.
Personality: She is very confident and intelligent, which rubs some the wrong way but that has never bothers her. She can also be very very stubborn and hates being told she's wrong.
Skills: As mentioned, she is very intelligent and has a knack for invention just like her family.
Other: Her parents are highly respected inventors, they have created some of the most sought after tech in human society. Lina longs to follow in their footsteps, but now she feels like those dreams are in jeopardy because her name was drawn.

Awesome!! This will be rad !!

Okay, so the RP will start soon as soon as I'm able to write out the intro, at the Drawing, with the crowds (monsters and humans separated) having just arrived to hear the names announced! 'Couples' will be randomly paired together although I will also do my best to keep ages close for lack of awkwardness! These 'Couples' can only be 'Couples' in name and don't have to develop an actual romantic relationship unless the two creators involved think it would be good! This sort of part of the story doesn't need to be really romantic unless the people want it to be, so no pressure! It's just some drama and stuff for characters to be Paired together (Announcer Voice) in the name of PEACE AMONG MONSTERS AND HUMAAAAAANS !

Anyways I'm so excited for all of these characters eeee!!!!!
