I've finally started updating the character page, and I'll try to continue at the rate of one new entry every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until I'm done. We've done Mr. Jones and Fathima; now we move on to Kai, Iz's dad. I've included the entry below, but it's also available on the "Characters" page.


Full Name: Kai Keolanui

Date of Birth: February 19, 1968

He Is: Iz's father

He Has: A job as a paramedic, a bottomless pit of optimism, several hundred dad jokes, jazz hands

He Lacks: Unproblematic children

Avoid Him If: You need to concentrate on something really, really hard
A man in his fifties with black hair, brown skin, glasses, a green shirt, blue jeans, and brown shoes grin and makes jazz hands.

Panel 1: In Universe A, back in December of 2022, Iz A has had a breakdown, and his parents have insisted on him coming to stay with them over Christmas. He lies in his old bed in the dark. His disembodied Universe B counterpart, the Iz who has been in a coma for eight months, is listening in.

Iz A [thinks]: What a mess I am.

Iz B: No kidding.

Panel 2: Iz A begins to cry.

Iz B: I'm not sure I can even blame you. I'm a mess too. But you can do something about it, and I can't.

Panel 3: 

Iz B: Why won't you just...I dunno...defy fate? I did. Granted, that didn't work great, but it worked.

Panel 4:

Voice From Off Panel: Well, yes and no.

Iz B: This can't possibly be good.

Alt-Text: Oh no...a mysterious voice that appears to be responding to a comment from someone no one can hear. Whatever can be happening now?
