Manna crystals are Khaydarin crystals and Dark Manna is The Void, tainted by the Cthulhu from The Voice In The Darkness, making Dark Manna crystals Argus Gems.I mean, come on, concentrated magical energy? That happens to be electric blue? The only thing missing is a Xel'naga temple. The Great Old One sleeping in the core of the world is not fully awake, so his foul presence merely drives Void users mad, rather than Taking them over.
Natani is Kane.The Pillar of Light seen in strip #526 was actually an Ion Cannon, and Natani is the only survivor of the blast. Why? Because she's the Dark Messiah.
Trace and Flora have visited, or will visit, a version of Earth.There are a handful of Yosh! comics where the two guest-stared. And while these comics aren't stated to be canon, neither are they stated to be non-canon. The fact that no mention of the characters visiting another world has been made in TwoKinds yet points to the visits being yet to happen in the TwoKinds series.
As a corollary, Trace and Flora will time travel to the time of Yosh!.
Twokinds is in a Stable Time LoopTrace eventually gets corrupted by the dark power in his system and goes back in time on a murdering rampage. This is why he spared Laura when he came across her 5 years ago, because she reminded him of Flora.
The world where the protagonists are is only a part of the whole worldIt was mentioned that the humans came from the sea. So, the humans aren't from there. It's maybe just a continent.
Overuse of Black Mana will turn Trace into a KeidranThis might just be a bit far-fetched, but look at his hand and tell me that it doesn't look at least SOMEWHAT animal-esque.
related to above. Overuse of Dark Manna will turn Trace into an undead monster.Dark manna is more-or-less necromancy, and The Corruption to boot. Flesh turns black in the end stages of decomposition. We'll probably see the black parts burst and liquefy, then turn into skeleton bits.
Mike and Evals are going to put Eric in Cement Shoes, and then over the side.
The Law Catching UpThat being said, $10 says that the Templars catch on to Eric and Trace's scheme with the slaves and that Eric will be forced to flee in disgrace. His brother Roderick may even get involved (whether that includes his loyalty being called into question orhim personally taking up the quest to track his brother down).
Trace's hair and eyes contain natural mana stores.They're the colour they are because they are pigmented by miniscule mana crystals. It also helps explain his proficiency and power in magic to an extent. When using dark mana, his hair becomes darker as the mana is drained from it, just as with ordinary mana crystals. Like ordinary mana crystals, they can recharge, restoring them to their original colour some time after dark mana use.
Keidran were created by Neutral.Like in our world, once humans got the ability to use weapons, they quickly became the best predators by far. Neutral does not like one side winning. So to compensate, Neutral took all of the other species that serve as apex predators and gave them all the advantages humans have: human-level intelligence and bipedal form. Either they are less effective at magic because they are physically stronger, or else this happened before humans started using magic as much as they do. This explains why all Keidran are of carnivorous species.
Neutral is actually NOT.It's actually Lawful Evil, and further evidence will definitely show up later on.
General Alabaster killed Keith's Mother, out of scorned jealousy.That was not the reaction of someone who thinks his best friend is about to screw up his life. That was the reaction of someone who decided to Murder the Hypotenuse.
Bisexuality is not uncommon among BasitinWell, when you're only allowed to have sex with the opposite sex once a year, things happen.
Trace won't have to worry about outliving Flora.Because he's already killing himself with Black Magic. The first time he crossed the line after his first wife Saria was killed, he went absolutely bugfuck nuts not out of grief, but because he tried to use Black Magic to save her. He's used it twice more in defense of Flora, and has already lost the use of his right hand. If he keeps it under control, they'll have a similar lifespan, enough to watch their child(ren?) grow up. If not, Flora is going to end up mourning him.
Maddie Addie is a ghost.No mere mortal could possibly create the stack seen on this page. Poltergeists have been known to do that kind of thing. Also her maddening habit of disappearing sans evidence she was ever on the ship...
Maddie Addie is related to King AdelaideMadelyn Adelaide shares a name with the Basitin king, she might even be her daughter for all we know. That and she seems almost adult size and is only thirteen, maybe the height thing is hereditary.
Neutral intends for Flora and Trace's child to be a messiah figureOnly Flora and Trace are going to be allowed to have a Half-Human Hybrid offspring, so that this offspring will either be a messiah to lead humans and Keidran to peace, or else a puppet for Neutral.
Neutral has removed the restriction on Half Human Hybrids as a wholeBecause this makes more sense than the above. If the humans and Keidran can actually crossbreed with each other, it becomes a whole lot easier for them to see each other as "people" and not "animals". At the very least, it means some remnants of the Keidran race will survive, through their half-breed offspring, if the worst comes to the worst.
As an addendum to the above, Neutral has also made Keidran/Basitan crossbreeding viable, and/or has allowed for Human/Basitan crossbreedingIf the Keidran can cross with both humans and Basitan, well, that furthers the logic behind letting humans and Keidran bear children together. And if all three races can interbreed at will, that's one way to eventually promote peace.
Roderick's Weapon is Meant to be Used as a GuillotineEric's brother carries a strange blade. At first glance the thing looks completely impractical, but it could be meant for aereo strikes. The weapon would be horribly unbalanced if swung like a sword, but if Roderick used magic and his natural strength to propel himself upwards, he could use the weapon like a Guillotine. The weapon would be much more useful if the center part was where the strike would occur. Furthermore, it would be useful sneak attacks launched from trees, rooftops, or towers. Any hit made by the weapon would certainly cut the target in half, incapacitating or outright killing the unfortunate victim. Finally, the weapon makes for a good psychological weapon due to its size and sharp cutting edge. This would also explain why Roderick is often sent on night missions. The weapon would be much more useful as a surprise attack weapon. The only issue is that the weapon retains it's shiny appearance which would give it away in the moonlight, though, that may be the point if, again, he used it as a psychological weapon. Imagine seeing the glint of the huge blade at night which is followed quickly by an aereo assault that, if enhanced by magic, would cut trees, rocks, people, and the ground itself in half. While not practical in a straight fight, Roderick would be a good hit and run fighter (assuming he could use magic and/or a Charles Atlas Superpower to enhance his jumping ability and not shatter his wrists with every attack) who would strike fear into his enemies. In extended combat, he would almost certainly be joined by other warriors who would have more conventional weaponry.
