WMG: Our Little Adventure
An annoying bard
who's good with a bow and a Chaotic Good
(ish) rogue with magical talent? Do the math. Obviously Julie takes after her dad and Angelika takes after Mom.
Emily is some kind of spy or mole for the Souballo Empire.
The more time the second 'book' spends on Emily
the less and less Emily seems to be on the level. She's very
interested in Julie's mission and has tried to get info out of her more than once. Lately, she has been revealed to be rather racist towards Elves
and was fairly friendly towards the imperial commandos they met on the road.
- This theory is twisted up even more with Emily actively helping Julie and the group fight a group of Angelo's Kids in a town they stopped in. Either this theory is false and she's not really a spy, or Emily really wants to maintain the deception and (re)gain Julie's trust...or she might not know Angelo's Kids and The Souballo Empire are two parts of the same thing.
- Now people are saying Emily isn't a spy for the Souballo Empire, but some unnamed third party.
- Confirmed. She's a servant of Angelo. Or rather, she's the host of one.
The Empire resurrected Pauline
The character sheets provided
by the author of the comic mention that the Empire's top spellcasters are involved in "reconstruction" of souls in addition to simple creation, so it's possible that she was forcibly taken from the afterlife and reincarnated as an Empire soldier now called "Paula." Paula appears to be Lawful Neutral (due to her loyalty to the Empire, her ability to cast the Lawful spell "Dictum" without being deafened, and her vocal disapproval of - but no onscreen attempts to halt - the Empire's more unethical experiments), while Pauline
was definitively Chaotic Good; however, even beyond the similarity in names, Paula does share Pauline
's surly attitude, so perhaps the Empire just twisted her moral world-view when they forced her back. Most importantly, Paula was introduced in a comic titled "She looks familiar," even though it was made to look like the title was referring to the elf disguised as Julie.
