This paper describes ET and Mariá, two conversational agents with different characteristics. Mariá presents a more realistic character; however she is not an interactive agent, since we only provide short movies with predefined questions and animations. ET is an interactive agent, which can recognize keywords (in Portuguese) and visual react emotionally and textually. We describe the development of those agents as well as results obtained with interaction with subjects. We also present details about MECA, the system we developed to Model Embodied Conversational Agents.
