Hey, everyone!!

There's so much talent and creativity on HNZ, and we are constantly blown away by it. Once a month we like to show our appreciation for a character we feel is particularly amazing or well developed by thrusting them into the spotlight, so that you guys can learn more about the character and the inspiration behind it! Sometimes we pick a character because they have an incredible biography, an awesome character development, or simply because we think the roleplayer deserves some recognition for all the time and hard work they've put into them!!

This month, we've decided to spotlight the wonderful(ly scary) ~Professor Kalif Styx, roleplayed by the one and only Kaitlyn!!! Kalif has been a professor at HNZ for almost 30 IC years, which is truly incredible in itself, but he also has a seriously impressive biography which you should absolutely check out if you haven't already.

As per tradition, we asked Kaitlyn to answer some questions for us!

What was your initial thought when you were contacted about being spotlighted?
Considering it is Exam time, I see a ton of PMs and then this one. Needless to say, I was shocked to see something not related to exams.

What was the inspiration for your character?
Honestly, I don’t remember. I got a bit of his personality from me. The rest kind of came in on its own.

What is your favourite RP that your character has taken part in?
There are so many! From oldies where Cecily Rambolt pinches his ass, to Kalif throwing Nicolette into the pool, or any of his school ones. Anything he is in, I love it.

What is your favourite aspect of your character?
Probably how sarcastic and cold he is. He has the same wit as me but I also love how he is a professor. He teaches to stay away from home.

Your least favourite aspect?
How rude he can be at times. And secretive.

If you could meet your character in real life would you want to? Why or why not?
Uh, no. Kalif is a bloody murderer and can read my mind. I’d rather live.

What do you feel your strength in developing characters is?
I just let them develop themselves. I don’t plan for their personalities until they just come out and it fits.

Your weakness?
If I hate one of my own characters, I get bored and kill them off.

What would you recommend to those looking to further develop their characters?
Just go with the flow. I don’t often think of what characters will do if I am not 100 percent certain. Let them take over.

What are you most looking forward to on HNZ in the next several months?
Holidays with no lessons.

What is your favourite part of HNZ?
Everyone says people so while people are still awesome, I love all the creativity. The stories and the graphics. There is too much to love.

Join me in saying a big CONGRATULATIONS KAITLYN! :party:

So I have a question. Kalif is super scary, does he ever like any of his students or does he just loathe them all?
