Some scrapped ideas over the years - I've been keeping a list for some time now and it's interesting to see , so I thought I would share it
I don't think any of these ideas will ever comeback so Im okay with sharing them
Im currently working on a better overview about Gelea, including the story ánd world building ,, but in the meantime, some old ideas

✦ VERY EARLY ~few year old ideas
Captain was suppose to be the villain of the story, being mean to his crew and exploit them. The overall story also focussed more on the crew rather then the whole kingdom
✧ The prince ran away from home because he didn't want to be a prince and wanted to be free, no political reasons
✧ The prince's father was suppose to be alive and even though being an awful father, he was the one who was actively searching for him.
✧ While the prince was hiding his mother died
Snow was suppose to be the only one knowing about the real identity of Cabby, later on the others found out as well (now no one knows)
Chive was first a loser in love, desperately wanting a girlfriend and constantly trying to get one
✧ Rem was suppose to be Snows biological father
Gerret had one sister, who was a heavy nun (never drew her)
Karo and Nadi were suppose to be a duo, later on Zerra joined them, becoming three friends for a more interesting dynamic
✧ Everyone used to be teenagers
✧ Except Kit, who used to be 10 yrs old, later changed to 14 yrs old
✧ Snow used to be a shy character, instead of the motherly type she is now
✧ Captain's crew used to be just Snow, Kit, Cabby, Helmen and Pepe (who isn't a crew member anymore)
✧ Pepe used to have an Eye patch, but got replaced by Kenny in the crew , giving the eyepatch to him (This is also the reason that Kenny has black hair, his design is basically based off Pepe)
✧ Snow used to have a boyfriend, Drustan , who she had a relationship with after realizing Captain probably doesn't like her - but Drustan wasn't a very good boyfriend and at one point actually had the hots for Captain instead of Snow. After they broke up Captain and Snow got in a relationship

✦ RECENTLY SCRAPPED IDEAS ~something like a year old ideas
Ellanora was suppose to know Cabby from when he was hiding, not him as a prince
✧ Also - Ellenora was the one that was in total awe by Cabby, adoring him since the first time she saw him. Now it's flipped around and Cabby (as the prince) is the one who really likes Ellenora
June and Lillin used to be half human half cat (basically cat ears) - but Nekotamas were scrapped from Gelea
Captain used to have webbed feet - another thing scrapped from Gelea are half breeds, they're not very likely to happen anymore
Karo used to have a clown get up
✧ Older version of Huaan (basically a different character, with a different look and role (head of servants instead of spokesperson and personal servant) but same name) was suppose to have a crush on the Prince, just like Chee
(Huaan got combined with another character who had the same personality and role what Huaan has now)
✧ Captain, Kenny and Helmen always represented three brothers, however Captain used to be the youngest "brother" and Kenny the oldest. Now Captain is the oldest and Helmen the youngest. They still have their brother bond though.
Dane was first the one with the "elf-fetish", this was later moved to Gerret. Dane still is girl crazy, he just doesn't have strict rules anymore.
✧ Captain used to have a cat named "Cattain"
✧ Captain was aware of Snow's feelings and they were even dating
✧ Drustan, the older brother of Mavis, was replaced by Lané - they don't have the same role anymore, but Drustan was the original inspiration for Lané

hey dude! i don't mean to be rude but i'm confused on a couple points here. I always thought prince dan and cabby were the same person since cabby used to be a prince and they have very similar colours? i'm not sure if they're brothers or something but i mix them up quite a bit ^^' same goes for huaan and lané

i'd also love to know more about your swan-like ballerina character! i love her design but i really don't know much about her story-wise!

so sorry again if i'm being rude i just wanted to clear some things up ^^

Cabby = the prince
Lané and Huaan are twin brothers
And who do you mean with the ballerina character :0 ?

Yeah - people were suggesting that, they didn't know they were the same as well
so I kinda made it as a joke haha - but it's okay not knowing that ! I mean- I dont expect people to know everything about my characters, and I don't blame anyone for not knowing something, it can get pretty confusing since Im not good at explaining haha

Karo did had feathers in her design , if she had blue hair it was probably her :0
she is really fun to draw, love her colours, so I definitely want to draw her more ~

Huh, that's interesting!
It's always cool to see how peoples' stories and ideas evolve, it can be amazing how different they can feel.

That's pretty cool! A lot of ideas that were changed overtime to get results you have so far now.
