Fridge / Unsounded

Fridge Brilliance
  • Duane's face looks almost human when the story begins, but becomes grayer and more run-down as the story progresses. This is because his glamour is slowly failing due to an increasing lack of beauty to draw from, and also because of psychological complications (he hates it, since it's like he's living a lie). Confirmed by Word of God here.
  • Duane's glamour that makes him look like a normal person breaks if you look him in the eye. Why? Because Duane's too honest for his own good, and he can't lie to you if you're looking into his eyes. When is the only time when the viewers are able to see Duane's true face? When we can see his eyes.
  • The title of the comic is "Unsounded" and Duane is a tacit caster, meaning he can cast spells without speaking. In other words, he doesn't have to sound them out, they're unsounded.
    • More recent in-comic examples may indicate that the name actually refers to the Ssaelit belief that the Gods are dead, and thus a knock on the 'halls of the Gods' will result in a hollow reply. The mantra(possibly referring to some aspect of Pymary) to 'Sound the Unsounded', may mean something else entirely, possibly a call to explore the great unknown and push the bonds of human knowledge. The name could also have multiple meanings, none, or one or more we have yet to encounter/be informed of. There, unfortunately, is no Word of God on this, yet.
  • Early on in the story, Sette tries to guess Duane's name and guesses it's "Elizabeth". Later on, she asks Murkoph his name, and he suggests Elizabeth. A few pages later, we learn that the name of Mikaila's childhood friend is Lizbeth (possibly short for Elizabeth).
    • It's also foreshadowing that every thing that has and will happen is in the Khert, Murkoph most likely came up with the name as a call back to when Sette suggested it.

Fridge Horror
  • According to Word of God, Matty can't "turn off" Chitz if he doesn't want to see something. Now look at this page (spoilers). Why would Starfish pick up Chitz for Matty? Look at where he's pointing it. Starfish is forcing Matty to watch his father die. Has an additional note of Tear Jerker when you notice how Matty is desperately trying to shut his eyes...

Fridge Logic
  • Bastion Winalils Really Gets Around (allegedly), but he's also a eunuch. How does he have all the sex he talks about if he was castrated?
