Hey, I'm Kite! This page is for my adoptables. Before applying for any of the characters listen below, please ensure that you have thoroughly read the rules, requirements, and my adoption contract (contracts may vary per each character). Also, I stole most of this template from Ann!

1.  Future Adoptables




2.  Contract

2.1  Terms


  • Character comes with pre-existing relationships and will likely be involved in a future plot and/or has been previously played.
  • Character has strict constraints and I may want certain things out of them (ex: threads with related characters, solid activity, good communication)
  • Character will be required to join a specific pack (non-negotiable).
  • Character will be reclaimed if they are dropped, removed from activity, are not being played sufficiently, or do not have solid activity.
  • Player must have good activity, good communication, and no recent rule infractions.
  • Anyone who applies for this character is required to give at least one 200 word sample written as the character being applied for.
  • I may not adopt this character to anyone who has not previously been or is currently a member of 'Souls.
  • I may ask for prospective players to test-drive the character in a LASKY thread.


  • Character may come with pre-existing relationships and may have been previously played.
  • If the character is a puppy, they will be required to remain in their birth pack. Leaving their birth pack may be discussed after 1 year of age.
  • Character may be reclaimed if dropped or if contract is broken.
  • Player should have solid activity, good communication and comprehension skills, and no recent rule infractions or issues.
  • Player may be required to provide a writing sample or test-drive this character in LASKY at my discretion.
  • I may not adopt this character out to anyone who has not previously been or is currently a member of 'Souls.


  • Character may come with minor connections and/or has been previously played for a short time.
  • Character does not come with additional constraints and is allowed to join any pack, be involved in any plot, and is open to all interpretations.
  • Character may be reclaimed if dropped or if contract is broken.
  • Player should have solid activity, good communication and comprehension skills, and no recent rule infractions or issues.
  • Player will not be required provide additional writing samples or test-drive this character in LASKY.

2.2  Adopter Rights

  • All baubles (art, titles, icons, etc.) originally given with the adoptable return with the character.
  • Gift art and gift graphics are typically considered reclaimable with the adoptable. If you bear a particular attachment to a table or something, let me know; I am flexible.
  • Commissioned and bought art is considered your property. New players must request your permission to use such items, even in the case of art customized to that particular character.
  • Titles and icons:
    • If earned via game points or contests, these are considered your property. You must, however, request removal/transfer in a timely manner after dropping the adoptable or they become property of the new player.
    • If purchased via the 'Souls store, these are considered your property and may be removed/transferred to your own character at any time.

2.3  Re-Adoption

I may choose to reclaim the adoptable if you have:

  • been removed in an activity sweep
  • dropped them for a period of 3+ months and have not contacted me to discuss picking the character up again
  • dropped them after brief play (0-5 months, 0-100 posts).
  • dropped them after inadequate, such as unfinished threads, unfulfilled plots, errors in interpreting preset constraints, etc
  • broken the character's adoption contact in any way with no intention of remedying the issue
  • have poor communication with me and refuse to participate in plots related to the character
  • been permanently banned from 'Souls

That said, I understand things come up and I might be willing to re-adopt to you again if you are willing to work with me and show a genuine attachment to a particular character.

2.4  Pre-Adoption Changes

For characters without development
These characters likely have not appeared at 'Souls yet

  • You are free to discuss pre-adoption changes to their history, appearance, family, etc. I'm typically open to such changes, so throw your ideas at me!
  • I understand that character development just happens sometimes, but if it's your plan from the get-go to take a character a different direction than I envisioned, let me know beforehand.

For characters with development
These characters have probably appeared at 'Souls already

  • Changes may not be possible, especially regarding their appearance and backstory, if they've spoken of their history in-game.
  • In general, I prefer not to allow changes to characters with active roleplay history.

2.5  Post-Adoption Changes

  • Generally, you do not need my permission to do things with an adoptable. They are your character to develop however you want!
    • This does not apply to characters with a strict contract — I may not be as lenient with them.
  • Some specific characters may have more stringent terms than this, such as requiring them to join a specific pack — double check on your particular adoptable's information to make sure!
  • For no characters am I looking to control every little aspect of our characters' interactions.
  • For some I may have stricter requirements about what I want out of them plot and thread-wise; I might require a thread for our characters to meet, or for a plot to be carried out, etc., but I'm okay with anything they do outside of that.
  • Please ask me first if you want to kill off a character! If you're simply bored of them, then I might re-adopt them out instead — but if it's an unimportant character, or one you've played a good long time and wish to retire, then I'm more open to it.

3.  Interested?


Contact me by one of the two provided methods. Please include:

  • Your preferred nickname:
  • Character:
  • A writing sample, 200+ words: Required for players who are applying for a strict contract adoptable OR who have not been a member of 'Souls before
  • Your interpretation of the character: No need to be overly wordy here -- just tell me how you might intend to play their personality, their motives, etc.
  • Any plots or ideas you've gotten for the character: OPTIONAL!
  • Have you read and understood all of the terms on my adoptions page?:
  • Some character may have a contract with different stipulations that what is on my page -- in that case, I will send you a copy of the contract if you have been approved.

4.  Forewarning

I greatly appreciate adopters who are patient, strong and active roleplayers, etc. I may not adopt to players who:

  • Have never had a 'Souls character yet; I do not adopt out to people who have never been a member of 'Souls before
  • Who constantly ask for adoptables, then fail to join with the adoptable.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity, constant absenteeism, etc.
  • Are not going to join with the adoptable as soon as possible.
  • Have adopted from me before, only to have the situation go awry in some way.

Don't be intimidated! This is just a warning. If you're interested, ask anyway -- the worst that will happen is a no, after all! I'm pickier about some characters than others, but it can't hurt to ask if you're interested!
