Hmm, who is this newcomer? My first thought is some sort of godlike being, or at least somebody pretending to be…
She’s someone being the voice of reason, which seems to me like the important attribute here.
She might be representing a godlike being, too- the hammer and heavy-ish armour kind of say ‘Paladin’ to me. Cool, if not terribly practical, design, in whichever case. As much respect as I have for Aaron’s considerable artistic skills, his costuming is often a bit hit-or-miss with me. Definitely like this one, though. Enough so that I’m actually kind of hoping we’ll get to see a bit more of her.
And whoever she is, she seems to have Sythax’s hemipenes in a vise here, and is reminding him none-too-gently of that fact. Sounds like her ‘favour’ is a major factor in keeping this remnant alive… wonder just how hostile this sphere is? All we’ve really seen is the Titan, these ruins, and lots and lots of unpleasant woodlands.
It is “her”, I guess.
that her is maga
Looking at that strip, it seems to me that “her” is referring to Magda:
Poole: “Last I heard, her people were camped around it.”
Magda: “We’re near the second bastion? Where is it?”
Interesting detail about her appearance: Those gloves look metallic. But they’re also obviously flexible. At the very least, she’s somebody who has access to a somewhat enhanced wardrobe :P.
On top of that, she’s not wearing a tattered cape !
those mite not be gloves remember a certain dragonlance blacksmith
One area that Humphrey seems decidedly less than adept than Maga is in defense. His usual “defense” is to kill it before it kills him and usually that works out fairly well. But he’s not so good at protecting others, (such as Weyland from the Harvesters on the titan) or now, when he’s instructed to not kill and he has to fight defensively. Hopefully Maga will patch this little hole in his training soon.
Or, more likely, Maga will berate Humph for not being good enough at something her has no experience in, and complain loudly about it. Even though, once again, it was her choices that led them to this situation.
Precious metal arms and a special hammer… Dragonlance flashback!
