When Apollo has feelings, he has a hard time hiding them. For example, his love for Ike. Although the two are great friends, Apollo has a huge crush on Ike, and tends to stumble over his own words whenever he talks to Ike. Despite this, he's afraid to tell Ike, for fear of losing their friendship. Because of this, he keeps his little secret a secret, receiving advice from Damien every step of the way about Ike and getting him to like Apollo.
Apollo is Ike's best friend. Ike doesn't do anything without Apollo, and he enjoys the company of the other baby dire. He doesn't seem to notice how... strange Apollo acts around him. That or he does and he ignores it. He's always ready to enjoy a game with Apollo and open the door up for him. Ike wants nothing more than their friendship to thrive at the moment. Although who knows, it may change in the near future?
Damien is overly pleased to know Apollo is so interested in learning his ways. He never thought anyone would want to master flirting and stealing hearts the way that Damien does. Apollo is a natural in Damien's eyes, and it only makes him happier to mentor the young dire.
Apollo doesn't understand his brother's hate for Damien; he thinks that Damien is awesome. The way he can make any cinidae fall in love with him fascinates Apollo. He thinks this is a good way to one day impress his brother, so he's Damien's little apprentice. He enjoys to learn from Damien and be at his side, and doesn't seem to take notice in anything bad in Damien.
Seth is good friends with Aaric for one main reason - they both hate Damien. Originally, he would only complain to Aaric and they'd side with each other on issues about Damien. It eventually led to their good friendship. In the end, they're both big brothers concerned for the well-being of their little brothers, and Seth takes refuge in knowing he can talk to Aaric about concerns and hard times.
Aaric and Seth are like two peas in a pod. Both concerning brothers, both who hate Damien. Aaric finds comfort in being able to complain and talk with Seth, and he is very glad to have such a close friend. He feels bad for Seth, who wouldn't have to deal with Damien if it weren't for Apollo's love for the psycho flirt. But, if that didn't happen, then how else would the two be friends? Aaric couldn't think of another way.
Apollo, although doesn't mind Aaric, doesn't see what he hates in Damien. Damien is Aaric's father! Who could hate their father? Although, it may be because Apollo is envious that Aaric has a father that tries to love him, while Apollo just has his brother. Nevertheless, he tries to be as nice as possible to Aaric, but only because he's Seth's friend.
Aaric feels bad for Apollo. What could Damien have done to taint the poor kid's mind into thinking flirting and breaking hearts was the best thing ever? Aaric couldn't see it. He hopes that Apollo snaps out of his father's strange trance fast, and become a normal boy. With that said, Aaric will sometimes try and persuade Apollo out of it, but his efforts are always in vain.
Aaric's world revolves around Ike and caring for him. With such a useless father, Aaric has become more of a father to Ike than Damien himself. Not that Aaric minds - he'd rather Ike get Aaric's influence than their father's. Aaric is constantly concerned for Ike, and is ready to protect him or stand up for him whenever need be. He just hopes that Ike will soon learn to fend for himself.
Ike loves his older brother, and enjoys to spend time with him whenever possible. He doesn't see why Aaric doesn't like their father, but decides not to let that get between their relationship. Ike tries to veer any and all topics about talking bad about Damien away from Aaric. He'd rather spend the time with his brother in joy and without conflict.
Damien doesn't understand how much his son dislikes him. Why should he? He didn't know Damien that well. Because of this, Damien knows their relationship is sour, and if that's what Aaric wants, then Damien will keep it like that. He doesn't want to try and make anything better and end up making it worse. Deep down inside, Damien cares and loves his son, no matter how much Aaric doesn't like him.
Aaric doesn't like Damien. At all. Damien is not only a terrible father in Aaric's eyes, but he also seems to float from one potential love to another, which bothers Aaric. In Aaric's mind, this means him and his brother were a fluke - sons that weren't supposed to happen. Thinking this, he takes out his frustration and emptiness about it on Damien. If he knew more about Damien, maybe it wouldn't be like this, but Aaric refuses to get to know him.
Riggs is very close to Friday. The two have known each other since they were mothkittens, and have been inseparable since. Riggs very much loves Friday, and is very happy to have him as his boyfriend. Although they can get into silent glares of some unknown argument, Riggs can always forgive the silent mothcat in the end. He loves Friday a lot, and hopes they can stay together for forever.
Friday doesn't need words to express how much he loves and cares for Riggs. The impatient and two-faced mothcat has had to put up with Friday's wordless stares, with no emotion in his eyes, and can still handle him. Friday didn't think anyone like that would come one day. For that, he's very grateful to have Riggs around, and doesn't want to leave him.
Friday is strangely pulled towards Wednesday. Not as a lover, but more like a sister and brother bond. Maybe it's because they both have disabilities? Or maybe it's their names? Friday doesn't know, but he always wants to be around Wednesday to help her. He wants to protect her.
No voice nor a face to connect him to, Wednesday still seems to have a strong connection with Friday. She doesn't know how to explain it, but it's like they were born to be companions. Wednesday relies on him a lot when she needs guidance or even just some comfortable silence. She would probably have gone insane by now without Friday.
Aside from Riggs, Raidyn seems to get along with Demetrius the best. Maybe it's because they're both overall grumpy and somewhat sad mothkittens, Raidyn's not sure. But he can always relate to Demetrius in some way or another, especially when it comes to Lysander's rambunctious behavior. Often Raidyn can be found talking small talk with Demetrius, and being comforted by his adopted brother's silence.
Demetrius is comforted by Raidyn's quiet nature. He's not energetic, not rambunctious, and certainly not always trying to ruin Demetrius' day. Because of this, they get along quite well, and they enjoy each other's company in silence. Demetrius appreciates his adopted brother's fears, and is always there to help him through them, as well.
Raidyn can get... annoyed with Lysander. His adopted brother is very energetic, which is the complete opposite of Raidyn. Due to this, he doesn't interact with Lysander as much as he could, and, in fact, sometimes tries to even avoid Lysander. Raidyn loves his adopted brother, but Lysander can get to be too much for poor Raidyn to handle.
Lysander wishes that Raidyn would open up more. He's like a lump on a log, and Lysander doesn't like it. There's already two others like that in the family. Because of this, Lysander constantly pesters Raidyn, trying to get him to be happy and take part in some of the games the other kittens play. Although his efforts are all in vain, Lysander refuses to give up, and is always ready to try again.
Maybe it's because they were both orphans taken in by the same family, but Riggs is very close to Raidyn. He saw a lot in himself when he first found Raidyn, and doesn't want the mothkitten to have to live the same pain that Riggs had to before Cyrus came into his life. Riggs is more of Raidyn's legal guardian than Cyrus and March, which he's fine with. He'd do anything for little Raidyn to be happy.
Raidyn has an indescribable relationship with Riggs. Maybe it's because it was Riggs that saved him, or that they're both orphans. But he's very close to Riggs, like they were actually blood brothers. Even though they aren't, Raidyn likes to think they are. He never wants to be separated from Riggs, and is always seen with Riggs, whether it's between his legs, on his back, or just by his side.
Riggs would be lying if he said Lysander wasn't a handful. Maybe Riggs thought he and Demetrius would be as easy to care for as Sakura was, but he was wrong. Lysander exhausts Riggs whenever Riggs has to babysit him, and Riggs always has to find new ways to entertain his adoptive brother. He still loves Lysander very much, but wishes he would just give Riggs a break every so often.
Lysander knows that he drives Riggs nuts sometimes, and he's more than proud of it. He likes to play games with Riggs, and play pranks on him, too. At the same time, however, he actually looks up to Riggs as his older brother. Riggs would be the cat that Lysander would go to for advice and just to talk to. He'd probably have a hard time without Riggs.
When they first met, Riggs was annoyed with Thyme. Why was this random bumblebun just following him around? What did he like about Riggs? Riggs couldn't answer these questions, as he grew older, he was constantly tripping over Thyme. Now, he's learned to live with the bumblebun, his self-proclaimed companion. Thyme gives Riggs a certain peace that he needs after a long day, and Riggs enjoys Thyme's company now. He would be lost without his little bun.
There was something about Riggs that Thyme liked. He can't explain what it is, but he wants to follow Riggs everywhere. Thyme likes Riggs quiet personality and calm nature, and he doesn't seem to mind when Riggs gets annoyed with him. As long as Thyme can stay by Riggs side, Thyme is fine with anything and everything.
Unlike towards her blood brothers, Sakura doesn't seem to mind having Raidyn around. She's come to understand that he needed their family and that he cherishes it very much. Because of this, Sakura actually appreciates having Raidyn around.
