Donovan is Elan from The Order of the Stick.It was suggested on the Order of the Stick page that Elan is a Deegan. Donovan is a blond bard (well, before he went gray), and handy with a sword, as Elan is after he Took a Level in Badass. Furthermore, the red-haired Oracle Hunter is Donovan's daughter. Obviously her mother was Haley, who will join the Blinders in an effort to steal money from them but balk at the mass suicide. She and Elan will break up before he knows she's pregnant, and he'll move to Callan, change his name, and take up with Miranda.
It has been suggested that the verse of Dominic Deegan (also known as Dominion) is a future earth after a nuclear war and that magic and humanoids present is due to horrible mutation.
We've seen Light and Law and Chaos and Darkness, will there be a Light and Chaos and Dark and Law?
Celesto is also the Champion of Destruction
Rilian was in love with Leaflette, the Sylvan Oracle.It certainly seemed so to this troper, but that may jes' be him.
The "Demon of Chaos" is the ultimate Big BadWell, think about it this way. When Gregory tried to fight Caylin Bren, Caylin was immune to white magic (most infernomancers are weak to it). Caylin then says something about chaos gets stronger from chaos. Fast forward to the War in Hell story arc. Notice who was nowhere to be found? Caylin Bren and the Demon of Chaos. Now, we know that not all the demon lords died because Karnak later claims to have "sealed the powers" of the surviving demon lords, presumably using his own power combined with that of the three he killed (Toxxel, Sirrilith, Ba'aleth). But like Caylin said... rules don't really apply to Chaos. Oh, remember when Donovan predicted that "that loony" might somehow be saved? Yeah, Mookie likes his foreshadowing.
A hitherto unseen "Demon of Puns" is the ultimate Big BadAnd it's been possessing ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING to further whatever it is it's trying to do.
Nimmel is a better werewolf than most werewolves because werewolves suck at being werewolvesTheir ideals are based on things werewolves have a really difficult time with (compassion, restraint, and even loyalty at times). That's why they're so isolationist. Restraint and compassion are things that come a lot more easily to other populations. So when just about every foreigner that isn't a caricature shows them how much better they are at being compassionate, restrained and loyal, they flip out and murder them. Only a select few are able to avoid this, when under the protection of powerful individuals.
Rilian is one of the two mages whose epic duel created the Wild Edge Territories and sundered the world.In this strip he mentions that he had a "bad experience" there "a few years ago". And it seems like something that fits his character.
Gregory's nightmares have nothing to do with the Blight.Link. Even without his white magic, it makes no sense for Blight nightmares to be affecting Gregory now. All the Blight was removed, and quite a long time ago, too. Rather, the nightmares come from something which the Beast left on him - an effect similar to the Blight, but based on Eldritch Abomination stuff instead of dark magic. It is this "Cthulhu-Blight" which is keeping Gregory's white magic from returning. Later on, the Cthulhu-Blight will be removed, and Gregory will be back to his white-magic-wielding self.
Karnak is Jacob's real father.
The 'viewers' are SeersBasically, the whole comic is one big vision/scry on the tale of Dominic Deegan, and we are the seers viewing the past. How none of the other seers have detected this? There's probably some punny explanation out there somewhere.
Chance Masters is Celesto's son.There is a resemblance and Celesto had a past meeting with Chance's parents. Celesto could have wooed Chance's mother and Chance got born. If the beast is after Celesto then he could go after Chance. Chance's parents might have felt embarrassed at the scandal and didn't want anyone to know. So, they keep all seers away.
The Beast is actually ZalgoCelesto's eyes become black bleeding holes whenever the Beast gets involved. Coincidence?
Dominic will get a working leg replacement through necromancy.Back when Dominic had his vision of suffering from Mindbreak, you can see that instead of a metal prosthetic leg like the ones he's been using, he looks like he has a patchwork leg of flesh, not unlike Quilt. Given Dominic's desire to make amends with Jacob at that point, and his later actions of attempting to understand the better side of necromancy through Brian, not to mention his improved opinion on Rilian, I get the feeling that necromancy will at some point give Dominic a new working leg. And with Jacob's enlightenment at Maltak... the two brothers might have a reconciliation and Jacob might be the one who gives Dominic this replacement.
Why Szark married Amelia.She enchanted him, his denial about being gay made it easier then normal. He wanted to be attracted to her
Szark is bisexual, not gay.He has convinced himself he is gay in order to distance himself from the murderer he used to be. This is also why he feels the need to constantly mention the fact he is gay.
