This is definitely an area of RP that gets a little tricky for a lot of players. As it's very difficult to make your character look underaged and that physical perception can be hard for players to get past. It's also so uncommon that people roleplay minors that many RPers may not be used to it and don't know how to act in those scenarios.
We'll certainly try to be more considerate with minors, as they're still in a shapable phase and shouldn't be treated as harshly as adults. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement when roleplaying with youth, and even developing mentorship between LSPD and community youth. Thank you for bringing this up, and we'll try to reinforce the idea within the faction that there are youth characters and that it is a different dynamic when interacting with them.
