What those girls call fun, everybody else calls murder sprees, or at least, attempted murder sprees.

Now now it's not nice to make fun of people's peculiarities

Verthandi: I forgot she's a cameo, because she seems like a character Kern would've created
Oiloss'lin: Great character design, but also her reappearance from the prologue is a great show of story continuity
Ran'diirk: Lived a badass, died a basass
Anin'dita: Great character design
Kery'awa: Great character design
Suna: because she's super cute
Riz'riia: Also forget she's a cameo, fits the story
Tur'geis: Same reason as above
Fame: Same reason as above, but also manages to be unique
Tsuris'lok: Same reason as above
Kyu'dosha: Great character design but also fits with the story really well
Cas'nilhus: Fits into the story really well

My favorite cameos are the ones that are indistinguishable from the main characters. They don't seem to try too hard to stand out, which I appreciate. Also some of the ones I listed just have great character designs

I'm sorry the answer was Sorn'mal, thankyou for playing though.

One cameo I like is Reka. She is calm, cool and, collective. Good traits to have if you'er spacial forces sniper.She doesn't talk to much though but I guess thats the point about her "quirks"

Edit: Ok I deleted my rant. The question was not "Which cameo you hate?" Sorry if I offend any one.

Please don't hate that I'm bumping an old thread, but I missed the party :A Everybody's selections are really good, and explaining what you liked about the cameos really helped me, a n00b, gain understanding of what you liked about them, thanx!

I'd like to contribute...my list of faves is pathetically short, because until Kern started identifying cameos at the foot of each page, I couldn't tell who was or wasn't a cameo. Also, even though I putter around at writing, I have difficulty with "feels", so an emotional scene like Petri'cho being thrown out of the Kyorl fortress didn't move me as much as it should. I like characters that grab my attentiion, mostly through actions, sometimes through dialogue, often who have me in stitches *lol* I'm big on humor...if a character ends up in a chibi page, that's usually a plus (unfortunately most of them tend to be core cast)

So, my short list:

Merril'lin - from the time she went to rescue Petri'cho, she piqued my interest; her seeking out Sakrag and Rayata to warn them was a funny scene, and I thought she was brave and a hella lot more useful than when Chiri has some of her "visions" that she tends to keep to herself until someone pries it out of her. Merril'lin doesn't just have actionable "visions", she takes decisive action, and that I respect. Also, she had me at "UWAAAH" as well...so cute! :V

Jysmur - "heheha *snrk*"...and that enormous purple tongue hanging out...not to mention being a gas warfare specialist "FEEERT!". I thought she was gonna die blowing up the first turtle summon...nope, another "FEEERT!" :P Later she is tied to the cupola of the Infinity Turtle, and is STILL THERE after Big Red goes away. Her kind of passive, almost background presence just strikes a chord with me (she showed up in Relic Hunters also!). Her looks kinda reminds me of Shiro from Deadman Wonderland, too. btw her Wiki entry is wrong, she can talk, she probably just chooses not to! :D

Vren - poor sod...he has such a thankless job, but manages to stay alive doing it! The one panel where a nekkid Kharla stole one of his prosthetic legs got me...and I guess it was funny enough to spawn a non-canon chibi page where Kiel and Fame join in the hijinx..."third leg!" Hilarious...he is almost the archetypical Alfred-esque butler, but never gets any respect. I like him nevertheless...and him gnawing on Baliir's leg in the concept was funny! :U

Ydna - or is that Ynda? o_O Her gushing over Sara's flying abilities, then promptly getting thrown off the roof in a "saw it coming a mile away" scene was just too funny! After changing attire, she crosses paths with Sara again, who scares her with a "BOOO!", then her arms hanging limply...priceless. Too bad she had to die in such a gruesome way :( but she was part of the Kalki Trio, it would have been sad had she survived and her friends didn't, so it was merciful that she didn't make it past chapter 46. I still miss her wackiness..."Hey Yuh'le, I'm not dead yet...gimme a hand?" *bigsmile*

Bast, Njack and Sindas - the "friend demons" are always funny, but when these three got their bodies, hijinx galore! I love their dialogues, they've always got funny or insightful things to say (that only Kiel can hear). Was it Sindas who is the accountant? I can relate, I am too B) I like how Kiel occasionally snaps off their heads to use them, and it doesn't hurt them. Njack, getting nommed by Naal-demon. Bast, escorting Shinae at Felde, trying to cheer her up...later going downstairs in the Vloz fortress and uncovering the Sene'kha followers' conspiracy. I hope we see those three again, with their bodies.

That's all I can think of right now. As I said, a funny side really makes a character likeable for me, but I understand this isn't all fun and games. I probably wouldn't like these characters as much if they were just comic relief. They have their important moments, but humor is a strong motivator. In the case of Vren, humility (or the appearance thereof) and overcoming adversity to do his job, while still being funny...he's a gem. :)
