Hi! So in my story my character coded to be half Indian (though there isn’t real India because it’s in a made up world). But!! So my character meets with her grandpa who is her mother’s father. I have her call him Nana Jaan and his name is King Abadiya is that like a good name?
Here is the entire exchange:

CASSANDRA (talk_excited)
Grandpa Abadiya!

@KING ABADIYA faces right

    KING ABADIYA (talk_think)
I'm sorry who are you?


    CASSANDRA (talk_happy_smile)
It's me Cassandra!!


    KING ABADIYA (talk_think)

    KING ABADIYA (talk_shrug)
My Cassandra is 3ft high and only speaks of ponies.

You should come back and visit. Maybe you could talk some sense into him.

I'd like that, though, it'll be awhile.

Things are bound to get busy around here soon.


    KING ABADIYA (talk_think)
Well hopefully you'll get a chance for a break and you could stay with us for a week.


    CASSANDRA (talk_happy_smile)
That sounds nice. It's long over due.

I’d really like opinions on whether this is respectful or okay also if there is anything you think I should change. Thank you! :blush:
