Go To

Soli will encounter some kind of supernatural creature

Both of the previous chapters have had a phenomenally powerful (and maddeningly enigmatic) supernatural creature; we can assume Mocheril is a Big Good while the Dagre is a Big Bad. Before this current chapter (chapter 3) is finished, Soli will meet with a third creature, on a level to the previous two but allied with neither; possibly an incarnation of Chaos or Freedom. It will recognize and/or dub Soli to be "The Center."

  • Jossed. Chapter 3 has now started (and ended) and no giant floating monster.

About a year ago, Pinter suffered a significant head wound.
This image (taken from the author's tumblr) shows that as little as a year ago, Pinter was, frankly, a fine specimen of manhood. Since then, he's not only let himself go, but become an alcoholic and developed a memory problem. So, a year before the events of the comic, Pinter suffered a severe head trauma that may have gotten him discharged from the army. (The fact that Amen as-of-a-year-ago is depicted suggests that maybe Amen and the mysterious third man were present at this event.) The only medicine available was cheap alcohol, to which Pinter became addicted. Now, though he's mostly healed, he still has significant memory loss (why he got "lost" on his expedition, yet flatly denies that he is lost) and fell out of shape.

Alternately, it could all be the booze.

Soli is a time traveler

I don't have much proof, it's just a hunch. A giant bird will be involved of course.

The Dagre murdered Phe.
The ambassadors of Caris had no reason to murder Phe. It would offer no political advantage: it seems the only possible outcome is that the hair-trigger temper Emperor is determined to declare war on their country. The Dagre (or is it just Dagre?) murdered Phe (by magic) and made it look like poisoning, because although the Dagre acts like he's on Luca's side, all that he wants is to see all humans eliminated, and an international war is the best way to do it.

Soli is either Alamand's mother or aunt.

According to the Meekipedia, she's 35 years old, he's 12-ish, and they do share the same hair and eye color. While his facial features aren't an exact match for hers, we don't yet know who Al's father is.

The three main characters are secretly Pokemon starters.

I've just noticed the three leads - Angora, Luca and Soli - have a grass-fire-water theme going on. Angora's got her powers, Luca has some sort of heat ability, and Soli has a teardrop tattoo. No doubt this will be important somehow. The story is actually leading up to all three characters being stuffed into Poke Balls by some professor before they give it to a new Pokemon protagonist.


Luca is going to try to force Angora to marry him

Word of God has said that Angora resembles a young Phe. As gross as it sounds, it makes perfect sense. Luca is going to want to have Angora for his second empress and here's why.

1) This is the guy who has no problem with forcing his teenage daughter Rana to marry a man his own age. Among the Pasori, it may be the cultural norm for men to marry much younger girls.

2) He sees his only son Sudu as a Inadequate Inheritor and may decide that the solution to the problem of the succession and the continuation of his legacy is to breed a new son with someone else, whom he can raise from birth to be as ruthless and relentless as he is.

3) After finding out about Angora's powers, Luca (who has powers himself) might see her as the perfect consort to help his annihilate his enemies and strengthen his reign.


4) Pure lust. Without Phe, Luca is clearly going mad with loneliness. If Angora resembles a young Phe, she would be the Replacement Goldfish.

Also, in chapter four, there's a conversation between Pinter and Angora that could possibly be foreshadowing.

Angora: What's an emperor?
Pinter: The Emperor is the leader of the country that Etan and I come from. Most of the world belongs to him.
Angora: *confused* Do I belong to him?

Angora is going to use her powers to destroy those tanks.

You know it's coming.
