Cheski the Meowstic. A psychic-type cat with a Russian accent, although you would never notice, since she hardly ever speaks. She is a tough soldier. She'll get the job done, and is never surprised at what comes her way. She just takes the challenge head on with a cold demeanor.
Tangie the Braixen. A fire-type fox. Some would call her a bit yandere, but don't let HER hear you say that... I couldn't help but picture the ear tufts as pigtails, which made her look absolutely adorable... but she's fire type, so I want her to have a fiery attitude. That part of her is kept under wraps until she gets pissed off. Again, don't piss her off. :I
It's like they were sitting around a table and said "How can we get Neko to buy our game?"
