Tamaputians! From the island of Tamapoa, where everything is tiny and adorable. Mata and Pato’s names are a tangle of convoluted puns. I’ll be delighted if anyone can unravel them.
Some romantic backstory for the itty-bitty engineers. The Tamaputian tradition for married couples is to mash up their original last names into a single portmanteau. In this case, Kaimahi + Waihanga = Kaihanga. That’s right, it’s a whole culture with institutionalized smushnames.
Pato and Mata Kaihanga are Tamaputians, the tiniest and most adorable citizens of the Leif & Thorn universe. Tansy hasn’t worked with people on this scale before…and she’s going to enjoy it. on Deviantart | on Tumblr
