Lya is described as having a very relaxed personality and loves sweets so much, it carries around a donut named “Juling” (the combination of Julia and Darling!).

3. Ryujin — “Tuk”

You know how I usually don’t open my eyes all the way? … I wanted to make a character similar to me so I drew the eyes like this.

— Ryujin

Tuk is a monkey wearing a hoodie with loveable big ears.

Despite being based on a 900-year-old nine-tailed fox, Chung-ee is still very trendy and loves iced americano!

5. Yuna — “Cabbit”

Yuna chose the name “Cabbit” since her character is a rabbit wearing a cat costume.
