[[caption-width-right:350:ActionDuo Vesper and Corrick [[http://plumecomic.com/archive/01001/ are knee-deep in...]]]]

"''Revenge is like a [[TitleDrop plume]] of smoke.''"

[[http://plumecomic.com/ Plume]] is a fantasy/western adventure webcomic written and illustrated by Kari Smith.

It's the times of TheWildWest and Vesper Gray is living a rather boring life under the thumb of her strict aunt, dreaming of one day joining her AdventurerArchaeologist father. Things change when she almost dies and is saved at the last moment by Corrick - a supernatural entity bound to protect those who wear an amulet given to Vesper by her dad years ago.

Shortly after Vesper gets used to Corrick's implaceable presence, her father returns to take her with him on his next adventure. Things are going fine until he's killed and his life's work stolen. Motivated by both her desire to reclaim the many magical artifacts and the need for revange, Vesper (accompanied by reluctant Corrick) sets out to face the WeirdWest. It's not as easy as she think, though...

Updates are relatively frequent, but sporadic.

!!This webcomic provides examples of:

* ActionDuo: If the numerous dead bodies surrounding the two in the first few pages are any indication.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: It seems Vesper's father is this.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: The Hunter. He looks black, but he has green eyes.
* AncientArtifact: [[spoiler: Corrick himself.]]
* ArchEnemy: Aunt Agatha Murdock was Vesper’s first arch nemesis.
* BadAssInANiceSuit: Corrick’s got a pretty swanky outfit. [[WordOfGod Word of God]] has it his design was partially based off Edward Elric from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* BerserkButton: Corrick goes ballistic when [[spoiler:Dom says he "owns him".]]
-->'''Corrick''' (nearly growling): Let me get this straight. You own the necklace. ''Not me''.
* BlackCloak: [[spoiler:The returned Azeel]] sports it, hiding most of his face.
* BlackMagic: Whatever the last ruler of Auru used on his city, it destroyed it. Corrick outright calls it black magic.
* BlingBlingBang: Dom's gun looks like it's plated with gold.
* BloodKnight: Vesper's "But God help me, killing is therapeutic."
* BountyHunter: The man known only as Hunter, whom Vesper's aunt hires to track the girl down.
* BigBrotherBully: [[spoiler:Aricon to Corrick.]] He essentially forced him to become who he is now out of paranoia, without consulting it or asking for permission.
* BridalCarry: [[http://plumecomic.com/?id=24 here]]
* CainAndAbel:
** [[spoiler:Corrick's older brother killed the oldest one to get to the throne]]. In a subversion, it's the younger sibling who's evil.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:Azeel returned from the dead]] as some sort of BlackMagic monster.
* CityOfGold: Auru used to be this, as evidenced by its moniker "City Laced With Gold". We don't see much of it in its golden age (pun unintended), but gold seems to be the most common method of decoration. By the time Vesper's father visited it, though, it was just ruins.
* ColdSnap: Chapter Ten suddenly switches from classic Wild West imagery to heavy snowfall, on the account of TimeSkip.
* ColorMotif: Gold. Auru is a city of gold, Dom has a golden gun, Corrick has SupernaturalGoldEyes, non-BlackMagic glows gold and the spellbook is written in gold as well.
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler:Azeel has those]], made from Black Magic.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Hunter just so happens to be looking for Vesper in the same town - bah, on the same ''street''! - that Corrick and Dom are in at the moment.
* CryIntoChest: Vesper, into Corrick's chest, after her father dies.
* CurbStompBattle:
** With Corrick's powers, the problem is finding Dom, not capturing him.
** [[spoiler:Azeel]] wrecks the entire party effortlessly.
* {{Depower}}:
** It's implied that this is what [[spoiler:Magnus wants to do for Corrick.]] In a twist, this time it's a good thing, as the character to be subjected exhibits IJustWantToBeNormal.
** [[spoiler:Azeel does that to Corrick]] during their battle.
* DiabolusExMachina: Chapter Nine is a big fat one. Vesper, Tegan and Corrick have captured Dom and are going to bring him to justice. It seems like Vesper will have her revenge when [[spoiler:Azeel shows up to menace Corrick and Dom manages to get ahold of Corrick's amulet in the ensuing chaos.]]
* DistressedDude: Vesper seems to consider [[spoiler:Corrick to be this]] following the events of Chapter 9. He seems to be dealing with it, though.
* DopeSlap: Corrick gives Vesper one for walking on thin ice just after meeting her. He does that to Dom, too, when chiding him.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Hunter is always referred to as "the Hunter", and he's a bounty hunter.
* TheEvilPrince: [[spoiler:Aricon]], who murdered his older brother to become the king.
* EvilUncle: Aunt, actually. Also, not really evil, just strict.
* FaceHeelTurn: Unwilling one. [[spoiler:Corrick is forced to serve Dom after the latter gets ahold of his amulet.]]
* {{Foil}}:
** Corrick and Vesper. The former is a jaded immortal trying to play the part of a responisble adult, while the latter is a carefree young woman with a violent streak.
** [[spoiler:Corrick and Azeel]]. Both are Aurans who were turned by magic, but while the former's mission is to protect and he detests the job most of the time, the latter is a destroyer and enjoys himself.

* HotWings: The power granted by the Mask of the Seraphim, except sevenfold.

* InternalReveal: Corrick and Dom find out that [[spoiler:the two bounty hunters are after the former, not the latter]], several pages after readers do.
* InTheBlood: After telling Vesper the story of his brother, Corrick depressedly concludes that [[spoiler:franticide must run in his family.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Dom is so convinced that everything in the world is about him, when a pair of bounty hunters starts to tail him and Corrick, he's immediately convinced they're after him and actually considers ''shooting'' them both when this turns out not to be the case.
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler:With Aricon dead and Azeel dead-and-evil, Corrick is the legitimate king of Auru. Not that it counts for much these days after Aricon's ''astonishing'' tenure as a ruler.]]

* LiteralMetaphor: When Dom is nearly clotheslined, one might assume it means he almost fell victim to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_wrestling_attacks#Clothesline wrestling attac called like this]]. Nope - it was literal clothesline he almost run into.
* MadeOfIron: Tegan somehow survives being thrown good ten metres in the air and crashing into the ground with not even a broken bone.

* MaskOfPower: The Mask of the Seraphim, giving SuperSpeed.
* MuggleBestFriend: Magnus seems to have been this for Corrick. He seems to be one of the few protectees Corrick actually liked and he was even trying to [[spoiler:find a way to bring Corrick back to normal.]]
* MysticalWhiteHair:
** Corrick got those after his ascension to guardian spirit. They used to be blonde.
** Ditto [[spoiler:Azeel]], although he's [[WhiteHairBlackHeart another trope, too]].

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Corrick falls eerily emotionless and silent when he's forced to [[spoiler:attack Vesper to protect Dom.]]
* OpenSaysMe: Vesper enthusiastically kicks open a locked treasure chest.
* TheParanoiac: The last king of Auru was obsessed with the idea that someone's going to try and kill him. Becomes a SelfFulfillingProphecy of sorts after [[spoiler:his actions cause Corrick to detest him to the point that he dreams of nothing more than killing him.]]
* PowersDoTheFighting: [[spoiler:Azeel]] spends the entire fight standing while his CombatTentacles are {{Curb Stomp|Battle}}ing everyone.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Corrick is only a century younger than the trope says.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Vesper and Corrick. Vesper is a hot-blooded young woman who wants ''adventure!'' and a budding BloodKnight, while Corrick is calmer, more jaded and cynical about the world, not to mention more used to it. He even wears blue coat to underline the point.

* SuperStrength: Given by the Powerstone.

* TimeSkip: The story jumps three months between chapters nine and ten.
* TitleDrop: "My father used to say that revenge is like a plume of smoke."
