[[WMG: Van Rijn knew something about the future.]]
I was rereading the archives during the break after the Paris arc, and [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090713#.WcavrtFlCUl this]] page with Von Pinn going over her history stuck out. "My beloved king has charged me with the solemn duty to protect you." and "My creator did not charge me with your protection. ''His'' last orders to me were to keep you 'safe.'" -- we now know that she's referring to Storm King Valois and Van Rijn, respectively. She goes on that "[Van Rijn] meant ''safe for those around you''. ''He'' knew what you would be. ''He'' knew what would happen if you were not ''watched''." Valois and Van Rijn may have been referring to the Heterodyne family as a whole, but I'm not so sure. It sounds like they might have meant Agatha specifically - especially since Von Pinn wanted to follow orders creatively and guard her ''tomb'', if not for Lucrezia's interference; if she wanted to "guard" the family in that manner, she could have done it sooner. And now that we've gone to Paris, we know that Van Rijn has been studying time and was in semi-regular contact with a time-warping entity of some kind. Could she have told Van Rijn and/or Valois about current events; our could some have Van Rijn's experiments led him to observe them himself?

** Violetta gave her the antidote, check the couple of pages after she IDs the poison.

* think about it, there are three boys, allways together, and a single girl (one of only two female jaegers) usually apart from them. they are smarter than most jaegers, due to their long time separated from the rest, making them good candidates.

** Klaus himself did describe her as "ruthless, manipulative, and a consummate actress." You'd think he would have considered that maybe, I don't know, she was ACTING. Heck, maybe with all the GenreSavvy in the Girl Genius universe, Lucrezia knew that, as the MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter, it was pretty much just a matter of time before she shacked up with either Bill or Barry (or maybe even Klaus, hence her sexual relationship with him). Therefore, in the fulfillment of her role as "FemmeFatale with a heart of gold who's ultimately harmless and doesn't REALLY want to hurt anyone", she pretended to lack her phenomenal talents as a Spark and just created glowing butterflies (see the page where Klaus mentioned that she never displayed the level of talent the Other possessed), as opposed to the slaver wasps that take over people's minds and would probably put her over the MoralEventHorizon for the only two Heterodynes with anything resembling a moral compass since the dawn of time.

I can't believe everybody missed this one. A strip as genre savvy as Girl Genius has got to have a Time Lord. English accent? Check. Always in the right place at the right time? Check. Able to recover from being stabbed in the heart? Check. Looks like he's trying to pick up Zeetha as a Companion, too. (Lila anyone?) Most probably a descendent of Agatha's from the future. Also its funner to call him Bosun Higgs, you know, like the particle... (Higgs Boson)

hence no contact or anyone wanting to go there and check on them. Think VideoGame/{{Fallout}} [[XMeetsY meets]] QueenVictoriasBomb.

** If anything, it's more like the hyperfocus that comes with ADHD, but of course that doesn't come with the urge to build giant death rays.

In this world, there are more possibilities than in ours. Remember, the setting is based on the premise of [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder a heritable subtype of humanity]], including the protagonist, with [[SuperIntelligence increased mental capabilities]], [[TheMadnessPlace hyperfocus as a superpower]] and [[MadScientist a particular view on experimental ethics]], so it might be possible for there to be some genotypes that leads to increased physical prowess (for example Ol' Man Death, maybe very common in the female population of Skifander)-especially considering that Sparks (especially Gil) have performed feats of extraordinary strenght and endurance.

[[WMG: Zola is the BigBad of the comic.]]
When she left the castle, her plan was to use the information she had from Lucrezia to control the other Lucrezias. Two and a half years later, she seems to have an [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20161226#.WPo_yKKHsSi insane amount of power over Europa]]. She may be the one behind all the current events related to The Other, and be using Lucrezia and the Knights of Jove as pawns. Heck, she could even turn out to be the one who set up the invasion of the Castle, by using time travel (and Madwa has just convenniently stolen a time travel device for The Other).

[[WMG: Combining all recent revelations and some theories]]
* The Other is imperfect mind replica of Euphrosinya Hererodyne, like Anevka in Tinka's replica, made after she and van Rijn betrayed Andronicus and botched attempt to capture/replicate powers of Muse of Time, which broke her mind and made her fully embrace "monster" side of her heritage, ignoring whatever "noble" notions Heterodynes cared of. Trying to save her, Andronicus made replica and uploaded it into daughter, which they conceived after (or even before) open betrayal of Andronicus. Oh, and that daughter founded house Mongfish, carrying both ruthlessness of Heterodynes and treachery of van Rijn. Over generations images worn down and suffered motive decay and now just want to rule, though at the beginning they founded cult dedicated to Muse of Time, initial obsession of the duo. When Lucrezia married Bill, previous iteration decided that this is a perfect opportunity and started all that plot. Oh, and since it's actually damaged copy instead of organic mind, Other's sparkiness is gone, and she has to rely on whatever each host invented before being hijacked. Well, at least before Lucrezia came and improved the process - seems like she invented both wasps and current brain uploading machine before all turning into Other, that's why Agatha's Spark is intact.
** Also in that case we can surnise, that Lucrezia sort of hijacked the Other, overwriting most of initial personality with her memory, ditching all that stuff with cult and hijacking it for plain world domination, which broke the base among Geisterdammen.
