Lilith has her reasons, but no, you're right, he couldn't do much damage to himself with that. But then, would you want Caleb anywhere near your face with a scalpel?
Cheers. According to partner, this is how my face looks 99% of the time, so it should give people a more accurate representation of me.

Yes, some of them visited the hairdresser first, focus on the faces.
They are all very beautiful
It's a little hard to recognize their personalities without their distinctive hairstyle and dramatic facial expressions.
Chapter 31 - Spawned Somehow
Oh I know, they just don't look right unless Faith is scowling, Melinda is cringing and April is doing... well whatever April does.
Don’t tell April that you held his hand though, Mel. Or sat next to him on a bench. Or showed him your drawings. Or any evidence of you being closer to him than she is holy cow.
Interesting bit of lore about how vampire families come to be. So they took him from his real parents, raised him, and then turned him into a vampire when he came of age? Is that how it works? Unless they still age when already turned into a vampire, in which case they could have bitten him right away… hmm. I wonder.
Also Caleb think we beat our hearts consciously made me chuckle. The dude really doesn’t remember human life well.
You'll have to wonder a little while more.
He's got a head full of hundreds of years of awful memories to wade through; can't remember everything, can he?
Hence I like MC train than April+Caleb. I was creeped out by Caleb the entire time because he was a 300 y.o. vamp with questionable motives towards an 18 y.o. unhealthily obsessed April and we have no insights as to why he's lovestruck about her, nor her him. Like..... aaaaah... WHY. WHY WHY WHY (channeling my April here). But with Mel, their conversations have always been insightful. Caleb actually sounds like a functioning adult with her and their conversations are always deep. So I miiight just be okay with the guy. But we'll see. I'll check out what happens between him and Lilith April before I choose to thaw/or engulf him in flames. heh!
And ahhhhh welcome back Faith. I'm loving your humor ahahaha ! So glad for these unpressured moments and Faith's good side is coming to light again (Also her brownie points increased because she doens't like Caleb's hair. Don't you just wanna give him a new makeover with your shears, eh? Bet you'd make him a stud.)
It can be very difficult to abandon an old habit
Modern mirrors no longer have silver in them, because it's expensive as heck to make.
Right. Sorry for that rant.
April is not great at making decisions.
Also, I love all the Artbreeder images. Everyone looks so sweet, young, and innocent, even though some of them aren't, lol. Also glad that Caleb lost some of his emo look. Lilith is my favorite of the bunch.

Chapter 32 - Reckless Ways
Caleb will be getting a haircut... if only because I'm fed up of posing him so that bloody fringe doesn't slice through everyone's faces.
The more I look at them, the more I like the artbreeder images. They are all quite young-looking, it's how I picture them in my head, even though in game they all look like emotional potatoes instead. Just evidence of my lack of sim-making ability, I suppose.
Haha, you go, Melinda! That’s genuinely impressive, beating someone at chess on your first try. And Lilith and Caleb actually seem a little like siblings here. You know – making quips at each other, her trying to smack him on the back of the head, that kinda thing. It’s a good change. LAL she’s annoying him with a beer drinking song! That’s hilarious. Lilith is quickly becoming my favourite in the whole cast. I like the three of them together like this. I’d add Faith, but I’m not sure if she would like it as much as Melinda does. April…. Well.
Good to hear it.
Caleb clearly underestimated his 'cute little vamp friend'. I had some fun this chapter, thinking of how my brother and I used to wind each other up. I can totally imagine him mocking my cooking and me giving him a swift shove. Good job neither of us had the power (or patience) to sing each other insane with a rendition of 30,000 bottles of beer on the wall, really.
So you'd add Faith and then what of April? Just leave her in a ditch somewhere?
Of course not! But she'll have to make some promises first. You know, the standard stuff. Be nice, don't turn into a tornado of jealous rage every time someone looks at Caleb, don't try to kill Lilith... just common manners, honestly.
