Khaya is a Gen Alpha ‘employee’. Since his start at RedHead, he has been the Alpha pushing everyone around by simply batting his eyelids. More into technology and a big fan of TV, especially Hotel for Dogs. His name stems from the Xhosa (South African Bantu Nguni people) language meaning ‘Home’ but also sounds the same than the Noongar (Australian Indigenous) word ‘Kaya’, meaning ‘Hello’. Still finding his perfect work style, he is a combination of fluff and personality.
Lucky, though slightly more mature, is still full of bounce and quite keen to meet new people. He does not own a TV nor care about commercial advertising, but is always keen to pose for an action shot for social media. Lucky is a great listener and an even better snorer. He loves the water and dreams about buying a catamaran when he retires. Lucky’s name is directly related to his zest for life as he was adopted from a euthanasia list, though did not originally landed there by choice. Prefers sleeping on the job.
