King He-Ping Miao
Born in the far northern borderlands of China, He-Ping inherited the majestic bearing of his Siberian tiger ancestors. His name means "peace" in Chinese, reflecting his sweet disposition and his dedication to peace in all its manifestations. A wise and just king, he is casual in style and prefers to be called simply "Ping". When his mane was barely full-grown, Ping immigrated to the United States and established his kingdom in the Little Red Brick Miao House. He reigns over the Myriad Miaos with floofy benevolence and furthers the cause of world peace through daily catnapping.
Mani is like a cup of hot chocolate with a dash of cinnamon – warm, fluffy, and perfect company for an evening snuggle with a book. Hardworking by nature, he holds himself responsible for the Miao household accounts, computer maintenance, and the breakfast dishes. Despite his busy schedule, he manages to find 18-20 hours of daily naptime. Three years ago he attained the status of Master Napper, a much coveted distinction in the feline world.
Kemi gets his name from Egypt, the ancestral homeland of cats, which was known to its ancient inhabitants as Kemet. Kemi is black with white ear tufts, and a thorough grooming yields a harvest of silvery black wool. Whether you see him as a woolly bear or a teddy bear, he is cuddly and plush and makes a comfy pillow. Kemi Care Bear is always there for his people and his brothers to offer snuggles and purrs. He enjoys satisfying his sweet tooth with blueberries, honeycomb, and homemade pancakes (preferably served together).
Merlin Miao of Persepolis
A petite silver Persian, Merlin has the highest floof-to-body-weight ratio of all the Miaos. He makes up for his small size with his shrill, bird-like hunting call, much like his namesake the merlin hawk. His belly may be little, but it is infinitely expandable and he is always eager to gobble up any of his Brothers' breakfast leftovers. He maintains his compact size by hunting fuzzballs and napping vigorously. His preferred form of entertainment is window-watching for bunnies and chipmunks.
Professor Tashi S. Miao
The epitome of Siamese sophistication and elegance, Tashi believes that mental and physical cultivation are equally important. He divides his time between intellectual pursuits, including literary criticism and chemistry, and athletic training. He includes sprinting and mountain-climbing among his favorite sports, and Shakespeare and Li Bai among his favorite authors. His pedagogical style is stern but encouraging, and he frowns upon habitual procrastination and intellectual sloppiness.
Prince Tantra Miao
Purrfect in every regard, or so he thinks, Prince Tantra works hard to cultivate an air of Siamese afloofness. On the inside, however, he's just a fluffy lambkins begging for a cuddle. He is quick to jealousy and not inclined to share anything except snuggles, maybe.
The secret identity of Batcat, who protects the weak and defends the innocent from creepy crawlie buggies. His laser-eyes are capable of stopping even the leggiest of centipedes in their tracks. Silverfish flee at the sight of his radiant lilac mittens, but his arch nemesis Tantroll merely grumbles. Five-time winner of the International Purring Marathon, Lotus is always up for a challenge or a cuddle.
Mama Miao and Papa Miao
The devoted parents of the Miao Brothers.
Humble chronicler of the Miao Brothers, devoted to sharing the floofings and musings of her feline brothers with the world. As a student, she is reunited with the Miao Brothers only during vacations, but she strives to celebrate their magnificence year-round through Miao posts. Generally shy but incurably batty, she has a special friend named Unicorn.
The least furry of all the Miao Brothers.
Elder Brother Ramses passed away in August 2007.
