Silk and Sword is a collaborative fantasy webcomic by Jon Walker and Miranda Wright. It began in April 2018 and updates weekly on Mondays.
The story takes place in Goshenia and is told in two parts, one following Nanette, a princess who was sent away in an attempt to save her life, and the other following Jehan Sayeni, his gang of thieves and Genevieve, the kind and astute prostitute who saved his life.
Silk and Sword provides Examples of:
- Ambiguously Human: Goshenians look a lot like elves, with their silver hair, pointed ears and red or purple eyes. However, Word of God states that they are human, albeit with a little nonhuman ancestry.
- Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Genevieve.
- Implausible Hair Colour: Unusually, due to the setting it's Genevieve with dark brown hair who falls under this trope.
- Knife Nut: Knives.
- Large and in Charge: The Goshenian Nobility can be up to 8ft tall, and an increased height is a pretty good indicator that a character comes from a powerful family.
- Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: Jehan's gang.
