Shaun: ‘’That’s incredible. I’m really jealous of how much you get to see.’’
Xena: ‘’I’m concerned how you actually believe all this!’’
Shaun: ‘’I didn’t think this place could have talking lizards a few months ago.’’Keeping the Peace is a fantasy webcomic hosted by comic fury about four universes that are fused together. Sometimes the inhabitants or one quarter of the world find a way to travel to another and either try to conquer each other or interfere with each other’s affairs and screw everything up. The immortal beings of each world find a solution to this: travel to another universe where the important events of the affairs of three of those universes exist in the form of fiction. The mortals from there will be reincarnated into one of the four universes, get the training and skills from the natives that they need, and take care of any arising problems quickly and quietly.Xena, the most recent addition to these agents has had a record three reincarnations before her first mission, and is the only one available to take care of all three of those universes.
Keeping the Peace provides examples of:
- Beware the Nice Ones: Shaun is quite a bro. Then he starts seeing the injustice of the new universe he’s in and occasionally goes ballistic.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Lampshaded and Discussed
- Deadpan Snarker: Stalix
- Freudian Slip: What happens when Xena tries to have a telepathic conversation with Stalix and normal one with Shaun at the same time.
- Happily Adopted: Shaun decided to take care of Chlora when her family was killed by bandits. Shaun is a human and Chlora is a coyote
- Hero of Another Story: The “protagonists” of the stories Xena knew and monitors in the four universes are portrayed as this.
- Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Stalix and a dragon controlled by a summoner.
- Ki Attacks: Proza Oklit, a special ability in one of the worlds, manifests partly as this.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Xena charges in when a humongous dragon enters the battlefield.
- No Indoor Voice: Simius tends to get excited a lot.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: Some of the inhabitants of the first world Xena encounters are this
- Older Than They Look: Not exactly Really 700 Years Old but Xena has the experience of three lives.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Played With. Two universes have dragons and they abide by different rules. Dragons like Stalix from her world are around the size of an elephant at most, can talk, and seem to have average human wisdom. Dragons from Shaun’s world are the size of a building, don’t talk and have such low intelligence that they can be at the beck and call of a summoner.
- Past-Life Memories: Xena has this in order to remember the stories of her first life and how events need to unfold in each world.
- Retired Badass: Armis is retired and implied to be pretty badass.
- Trapped in TV Land
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Xena and Stalix
- Winged Humanoid: Xena is the only one we've seen so far, though there may be more on her homeworld. People there are bonded to an animal at birth, and Stalix is Xena's bond. Xena gets dragon wings and possibly a little Super Strength, while Stalix gets human intelligence and language.
