I like your characters and how their histories intertwine. And the irony with Kiran is priceless.

It's funny but I have never met anyone in Ireland who spells that first name that way. Yet I have seen over 20 different ways to spell it in fictional media.

Sigh - it ain't easy being irish :wink:

Anyway welcome to the boards. Nice characters.

So tell me does Kiran have the ability to see when using his powers in another way?
Also does Kamole (how do you pronounce this name? I hate mispronouncing names) generate the elements in controllable volumes (a lot or a little)?

No, he can't see without another's help like a mindcast or if there is another light manipulator.

Kamole is prounced ka-moh-le and yes whenever he is calm and under the control of his emotions he can fully control his powers but a slight mood swing is disasterous (in retrospect having him just start puberty causes alot more trouble).

And thank you. :D

ooooooohhh. I love the characters, good foils/counterparts to my Sibling characters of Ignacio and Sofia. Iggy has similar crafting skils and both of them have trouble controlling their powers due to their emotional investments of their powers.
I'd love to see them in a fic or in an RP.

Welcome to the boards!

I'll let you know when an opening spot comes up too if you like

Try jumping in on MentalFloss's Chapter 2. I just jumped back in having missed Chapter 1. I think it's a good place to start and establish yourself.

I'm worried I'm not sticking to my characters close enough. I think I made it to hard for them to actually interact with people so now I'm lacking details while RPing, is that normal?

Don't force them to change
If you need to re-evaluate them than do but at this early a stage don't try a big dramatic retcon.
Sometimes they just need to find a line to follow to get to an easier stage of communication. Look back over your notes on them and see if you can find it or if there is something blocking it.
I think they are fine characters :D
So stay involved with the RPGs and see what comes of it
