[[ Physical comfort is definitely positive for Cuinn–hugs are good, but being close to his face is best, whether that means cupping his cheeks, pressing foreheads, or just breathing the same air. He responds well to actions that display a lack of fear of him but are also intimate and affectionate. Whether it’s from a stranger or a close friend has little effect on their calming nature. Using his given name is also helpful as he associates it with home. Make him feel safe!

( ๑‾̀◡‾́)σ»: Do they have a sensitive spot/s?
The Xaela paused, the tip of his tail flicking from one side to the other then settling into a gentle, contemplative sway. With eyes downcast, he lifted one hand to his abdomen, fingertips fleeting against the fabric as they trailed up to his chest then casually along the bottom of his ribs to just shy of his side–the largest areas of his body devoid of scales. His gaze rose as again did his hand, jaws tilted slightly up. Leatherclad palm found his naturally-armoured throat, lingering for only a moment before languidly falling away.
