You are getting into genetics, which I don't completely understand. SLPs normally darken. Charcoals are extremely dark when they are kittens. Are there any charcoal SLPs? I'm sure there are, but I honestly have no idea how to answer your question. Every kitten is different in the genetics. I would say a 12-week old charcoal would have the dark masking from birth. An SLP will also have somewhat of a mask and faint rosettes. Do you have a picture?

My charcoal at 12 weeks was really white and hardly had any markings on his body apart from his legs. He has a lovely silver charcoal colour on them.

I have a charcoal SLP kitty. She was very light as a kitten on her back. She always had a little mask, but her cape didn't start to develop until after she was 2 years old. Now she is very dark on her back.

She is so beautiful.
