Let us know what you think!
Okay!

Rayner: Purple, green, and black; slender build, confident pose... I'm definitely looking forward to seeing whether the snark is good-natured.

Siyan: Hair looks like she's a relation to Osiria (half-sister or cousin?) Siyan's quote sounds formal and almost subservient so maybe she's in a support position for the Sterling family? But we know Osiria is a Sterling... It'd seem unusual to have family serving family, but with her outfit matching Reiyd's it's got to be a uniform of some sort. Hmmm.

Reiyd: From the direction his nose and chin are facing, he seems to have a bit of a case of sidemouth. Maybe shorten and scoot it to the viewer's left?
Same outfit as Siyan; associated with "the House of Sterling?" Also like her his unusual hair and eye colors match.
Oooh, is he Puppy Butler? I've been hoping we eventually get to see Osiria's puppy-butler, but I can't remember his name.

Anabelle: I like the partially-swept-back look of her hair! Hmm, the style of her eyes is much more like Em's (and perhaps Maia's?) than anyone else's. Is that significant?
The way she makes a suit jacket look so casual and... comfy? lived-in?... makes me really interested to learn about her personality.
Is she a large/sturdy woman or is her sprite more of a close-up? (Curiosity, not critique.)

Kaye: His outfit is charming. Seriously, the way you've textured the neckerchief, gem, and rose... he is fine, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a sucker for formalwear. (Though I totally am.) Since he's Keeper Inc related, the white pattern on the lapels must be meant to invoke Kippy-wings, yes? Nice. What is the wrapped thing showing behind his arm?

Rayner: snark or good natured? Hmmmm. Both lol.

Siyan and Reiyd: yes they're wearing a uniform. He ain't puppy butler - even I don't know what the guy looks like yet lol. (And yeah his Sprite is more side >_>' I refuse to change him for now) Your observation towards Siyan is pretty good ;)

Anabelle: eh body type....nah she's just homely? Eyes? eh well. All anime characters look the same? ^^'

Kaye: wings.....I'm pretty sure that was a co incidence. A good one thou. Lol. wrapped thing is his hair. He has long long hair that he wraps up.

Thanks for your opinions! It's good to see what ppl really think of the characters at just a glance without knowing any back story yet. Hopefully ppl will come to like them even if they don't play a major role :)

I have one,
Rayner--> narcissist
Siyan--> arogant (her nose up the sky)
Reiyd--> controler-creepy (I believe you have drawn this guy before...I think he was shirtless, did he lose weight?)
Anabelle--> generic cute character who's shy and cheerful and helpful
Kaye (I imagined his hair will be brown or black)--> helpful? Formal? Mysterious maybe

It's nice to see the super old school uniform. Right now, I like Reiyd the most,will see if my opinion will change later : p

Congrats for finishing the writing

Emoting is putting in the character/Sprite expressions. It’s a tedious job though 😩
