Julie and Angelika are Elan and Haley's kidsAn 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.
The Empire resurrected PaulineThe 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.
