From what I see, the characters are dark-skinned (or at least most of them). May I ask: are they supposed to be Afro-Americans or some of them aren’t? If not all of them are Afro Americans, can you say what’s their racial ethnic identity (I am just asking)?

Are you talking about my characters?

If you are, James Mother is apart of the Siddi Tribe and his Father is Gujarati. That makes him half of both. Cardinia’s mother and father are both Aborigines. That makes her fully Aboriginal. Sydia and her siblings are mixed with all three of those ethnic identities, making them a quarter Gujarati (Indian), a quarter Siddi, and a half Aborigines. None of them are Afro-Americans.
