- Kelar Ras Akaelae
- Kela, Kel, Alpha
- Wolf (Genetic Elite)
- Grey-toned wolf with golden-brown eyes and dark hair (although dyed purple in Akaelae and Darius), white face and underside of neck and tail. He is of average build and coloration for a wolf and actually looks a lot like a younger version of his grandfather.
- Student (in Akaelae), Head of the Council (in Campus Safari and Sink or Swim)
- Niea (mother), Alpha (grandfather), Darius (cousin), Syrys (uncle)
- Celina, Sheana, Chatin(Satin), Cilke(Silk), Quinn, Collin, Cisco
In Campus Safari and Sink or Swim, he has succeeded Alpha as Head of the Council due to the death of the old Wolf. He placed Darius in charge of heading the expedition to terraform Mars and open contacts with Earth in the near future. In Sink or Swim, he listened to Outback's grievances and offered him a position to oversee the construction of a small research and recreation facility on an island that the Wolves own on Earth through Human contacts.
Like all Genetic Elites, he is short (at the time of Akaelae, at age 15, he is 5'8" and 160 pounds).
- Kel follows the Akaelae trait of being a leader, but would never refer to himself as one. He accepts responsibility for his own actions without a second thought and is a cautious wolf (at least around the time of Akaelae because by Campus Safari and Sink or Swim he is clearly a leader).
- He had a desire to become an Alpha as early as when he attended school in Akaelae. He never fought, though some who aspire to do, because he felt it took more than muscles to become a good Alpha... and disapproved of Darius picking fights he already knew he would win - especially since Darius had no interest in being Alpha. (Akaelae, strip 480) Although he points out, on the plus side, once Darius beats up everyone else, he just has to defeat Darius to become Alpha... (Akaelae, strip 481)
- Darius refers to him as a Peacekeeper, for even when they were cubs, while Darius and Celina brought out the worst in each other, while around Kel they were at their best. (Darius, strip 83)
Known traits and abilities
- In Akaelae, he had aspirations for being a lift pilot and run his own squad on exploratory missions on other worlds. His father is a squad leader and researcher for Akaelae Enterprises. His mother works in Akaelae Towers as an archivist. So far, Kel's testing for the lift program has qualified him to run the largest available lifts and he hopes to place equally well in the official tests.
- In Akaelae, he is not as physically built as his cousin, Darius, but can easily overpower him in a wrestling match. Kel prefers the use of intellect over physical strength, whereas, Darius is more physical than thoughtful. Kel is even tempered and very patient, but can be driven into a rage by the biting banter between Celina and Darius.
- The ability he uses to incapacitate Darius (Akaelae, strip 481) apparently has some duration, as afterwards he spent time with Brynn, (Akaelae, strip 486) went to class, (Akaelae, strip 492), finish class, (Akaelae, strip 493) and Darius was still out of it when he finally remembered him. (Akaelae, strip 494)
- He knows every gold Fox who lives in Centralis, so when he spots Toni and Fairfax watching them in Sink or Swim, he knows they are not citizens and probably listening in on their conversation. (Sink or Swim, strip 222)
- Seems to have adopted the name, Alpha, upon becoming Head of the Council.
- First appearance on Sink or Swim greeting the crew of Independence at Akaelae Towers. (Sink or Swim, strip 154)
- First appeared in a transmission in Campus Safari telling Darius that he was sending Darius' replacement, as he promised. (Campus Safari,strip 653)
- When Darius mentions his doubts about whether they were ready to initiate contact with Earth, he confided that several Council Members were questioning their presence near Earth, and whether the benefits outweighed the costs. (Campus Safari, strip 654)
- First appeared in Genoworks Saga working with Sheana and Celina to show Cilke and Quinn how to build a snow wolf. (Genoworks Saga, strip 182)
- First appeared sleeping in Akaelae while his pet Nibs was eating the cord on his alarm clock. (Akaelae, strip 22) It has gotten so bad his mother refuses to buy any more alarm clocks until Nibs stops. (Akaelae, strip 303)
- Kel and Celina's parents worked at Akaelae Towers. So they've been both acquaintances since they were small cubs at the nursery in Akaelae Towers. (Akaelae, strip 306)
- Found Brynn to be very attractive from the moment he saw her, much to Celina's displeasure. (Akaelae, strip 482) Celina's actions to drive her away would only annoy him and he would chase after Brynn. (Akaelae, strip 485)
- His first appearance in Darius was waiting for Celina and Darius so they could go to school together, only to see them fighting again. (Darius, strip 14)
- Saw his mother and possibly a sibling in Darius, as a dark wolf with white muzzle, and brown hair was driving them, along with a cub in the front seat. (Darius, strip 81) She also has white hands and feet, and Kel called the driver mom. (Darius, strip 85)
- He's pretty much in charge of Centralis and other cities. (Sink or Swim, strip 154)
- He has/had a crush on Brynn, even writing her name over and over on his pad. (Akaelae, strip 492)
