Unofficial Kevin & Kell FAQ

Years ago, Kevin Kindle the rabbit and Kell Dewclaw the wolf met in an online chat room. After falling head over heels for each other, they decided to meet in person. It wasn't until then that they realized they were from separate ends of the food chain.

However, the relationship they'd developed online overcame Kevin's instinct for self-preservation, and Kell's heart melted from such a demonstration of trust. Kell was energetic and vivacious, qualities Kevin had found lacking in herbivores. Such a relationship between predator and prey seemed doomed to fail but these two opposites were determined to overcome the barriers that society placed in their path.

They eventually married knowing good and well they would be outcasts. They settled in the suburb of Domain, which borders both a large metropolitan area and an uncharted region known simply as The Wild.

Along for the ride was Kevin's adopted hedgehog daughter Lindesfarne from his previous marriage and Kell's wolf cub son Rudy from hers. A year later, Kell gave birth to Coney, the carnivorous baby bunny who inherited Kevin's big ears and Kell's meaty appetite.

Other than their unconventional pairing, these woodland Bradys are not unlike a typical American family. Kevin and Kell live within a tree (at the corner of Tooth and Nail Streets) containing all the comforts of a suburban home: TV, indoor plumbing and neighbors with binoculars. Kell works as the founder and CEO of Dewclaw's Fine Meats, a competitor of her former employer, the world's primary supplier of grocery meat by-products known as Herd Thinners, Inc. Kevin runs the local Internet Service Provider called Hare-Link from the basement of their home. Lindesfarne is a graduate student at Beige University when not assisting with the ISP's tech issues. Rudy's exposure to herbivores led to his attendance at college on a competitive gardening team scholarship.

Lindesfarne is married to a bat, Fenton Fuscus, who sees her differently than others do (i.e., with sonar). Together they have a daughter, Turvy, who inherited her mother's quills and her father's flying ability. Rudy's girlfriend is Fiona Fennec, whose enormous ears give her super-hearing (this means she's aware of the slightest change in his emotions thanks to being able to hear his heartbeat.) Meanwhile, the mothers of Kevin and Kell, Dorothy and Elanor, have struggled over their granddaughter Coney's omnivorous diet.
