So many options. :) The question I woul dhave is will she be the same Mental age, or advance both?
I would think that each age option would allow the possibility of equal mental growth.
One minute your calm, the next your shooting someone in the face, then your doing your chickendance. If that is not chaos I dont know what is - Aiid
What? No "withered crone" option?
I'd hope she'd be a few years older mainly because so many of her friends have also grown older. It would be sad to see Canni left behind and maybe not be able to relate to the old Bratpack crew. But that could be a spark for RP as well. Depends on what direction you'd enjoy exploring.
But the characters charm was her child side. Though it would be a interesting teen or adult. Raised by so many clashing and opposing forces. Dorado, aiid, the reavers, would be interesting to see her adult side. But still, the child side was the charming side.
So true, and all done within rp.. starting with you <3.
so far there are 5 perverts that have voted :P
"Lee with bombs. Why do those things just seem to naturally go together?" - Sharkdog
"I believe in the world, the world just doesn't believe I should log in" - Vexa
Canni was created and raised by this community, I thought it was only fair to give you all a voice on something I felt was an important choice reguarding the waif.
I welcome the opinions and thoughts.
Oh and <3 to all the perverts ...lol.
It seems the community, and not LifeNet is the one that won't let Canni ever grow up :D :D :D

I voted for child because she's Ali's little one. She loves her like a daughter. Besides, Canni as a child is ICONIC!
Although I voted for stay the child, I'm between that and an older Canni. What made me vote for the last is the fact that she'll have to face conflicts of growing up and it wouldn't be a blunt change for either the character and player
I'm going with 18 year old canni just because I think the sudden shock of going from 12 to 18/19 would be mildly amusin/interesting to see. Suddenly she has to deal with a "larger" body. Be a bit clumsy for a while, get stuck in places she used to be able to go thru easily etc
I can scavenge trash... but this? This is rubbish! - Post Fall scavenger problems.
I was blown away by the results of the poll. I didnt expect this many votes or that they would all be so closely tied.
Some of the responses I got hit on the major point of the decision and that was if/when canni ages .. she will change, just as we all have as we grew out of childhood. None of us are that same person that we were at age 11, and neither will the waif when it is allowed to happen and honestly I have no idea how she would turn out because her personality developed over time. None of it was scripted or planned.
It's a hard choice for sure.
New experiences on what will essentially be a new character influenced by those that raised her and those yet to come? The only thing I am pretty certain of she wont change is her non-sexual lifestyle. She has voiced this loudly to me with strong conviction.
Retain a unique charcter that can interact with anyone, stranger or known, with "her own special perspective on the wilderness."?
I appreciate all the responses and now it seems Canni must decide if she is ready or not. I hope that reguardless of her choice, she will still be accepted as she always has.
As much as we, the community, would love to see all our characters grow or age in some facet...the fact remains that not all growth is physical. Canni has long been a symbol of what is forgotten in our struggles to survive. To me she represents the invisible children in the conflicts and what they must do to survive. My first interactions with her had been from her as a child, and it is how I've come to know the character. To age her, or change her dynamic and persona so dramaticly would not be a plus to her as we know her. I believe it'd destroy something special about her. Like c'mon...the remake of Red Dawn destroyed a classic movie. Do we really wanna do this to Canni? Leave Canni as Canni! C'mon chant with me! CANNI AS CANNI! CANNI AS CANNI! CANNI AS CANNI!
I never really got the chance to RP with Canni, so you may have already been doing this, but what if she's aged mentally but still stuck in the body of a child? Unless, like I said, you've already been doing that then disregard this comment. =P
In the land of Gods and Monsters I was an Angel, living in the Garden of Evil.
I would love for canni to meet you Betty. As for your question it would be a no since I prefer her to act age appropriate as possible considering the circumstances.
kid, teen or adult, i'm still throwing her in the damn pond
good luck with that
