    Some people did in fact try to figure out who did it, but evidance was kind of threadbare.

    Zee didn't lose any memory. She just wasn't focusing on event happening inside her head at the time =P

    Silliness aside, I'm opposed to the name 'Nexu' for the critters simply because pluralizing it would be needlessly confusing. I gather that was the point, but I get the feeling the amusement will wear off the first few times and then it will become merely annoying.

    Kris' point about "Nexu," "Nexus," and nexu is solid...

    For one thing, if I ever place a character in an arena I might want to use a nexu, you know? That things was pretty cool. I propose "ollie" be used instead, unless you all find a better name.

    That's completely accurate!

    Up until the point that the characters decide to have a mental breakdown/walk away/go off and do something stupid without you ever expecting it.

    The plural of Nexu would be Nexu.

    "This is a Nexu. My house has an infestation of Nexu. Fourteen Nexu just stole all my watermelons."

    Of the suggestions so far I personally like Meeps (because meeps!), Nexu because it coincides well with the suggested lore and it sounds silly, and Otalots if only because it sounds vaguely like it could be a name for an actual animal.

    I'm not terribly fond of ollie. Probably because it's a name for a skateboarding trick. Sick radical moves aren't cute animals!

    It's hard to tell what Zee's focusing on, considering she has little finger-puppets everywhere. I think Bellan will try to find out what happened. Talk to a divination specialist or something, if it comes to that.

    Hmm... I'll go with Ollies. A group of them is called Otelots (like a flock of crows is a murder). They speak in Meeps (meows, barks, chirps) and their genus is Nexu.

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    Random question to the Ollies voters since that's the majority at the moment.

    Would that be the singular or the plural?

    Would one be called an Ollie? Or an Ollies?

    Mostly because Ollies is already a thing.

    Just to be contrary to everyone else, I'm voting Otalot.

    Mostly because "Ollies" is weird with plurality.
    And "Meep" is a noise.
    Also "Nexu" seems like someone passed out when trying to write "Nexus".

    My intent was for Ollie to be singular and Ollies plural, but whichever you want is fine.

    I was aware that Ollie was a skateboard trick, but who would mistake an adorable Ferret otter creature with a skateboard trick.

    Vote Ollies cuz it was my idea.
