I wanted to design the sister's living space to fit with a "scene girl" style, but her appartment turned out looking granny-tacky, not raver-tacky. I went all the way and made the posters I had sketched on the walls about knitting.
It still looks nice regardless.
Very homely. FUCKYEAHKNITTING.
Granny houses are notoriously great for partying.
Grandmas never forget to have enough food for everybody. And people groan when they whip out the donkey tail game, but everybody spends the whole time laughing out loud and loving it. And groan again when she plays the tape she's been playing every party since 1982, but the year her magnetophone broke, someone hurried to buy the CD version, because it's just not the same thing without it.
This brings up an interesting question. Just how did Myces even come into existence, given Jean's sister's statement (100% fairy < 12.5% fairy)? Also, I was reading the characters page, and I was confused. Did Jean-Marie even know he was supposed to be an assassin? Or was he sent out to perform some other task and given a gun in the hopes that he'd end up needing to kill the people the Amicale want dead? Heck, there's a lot I don't understand, especially about the Amicale in general.
Your first question shall remain unanswered for now. Seppo did hint that he wondered how it happened, but hey, it obviously did!
The character page isn't very good indeed. I'll have to do something about it. I'll also have to figure out how much I can tell about the Amicale without it being spoilers.
Jean-Marie's job for the Amicale is supposed to be to deliver supplies to the leprechauns and take the fairy dust they purified on the way back. The Amicale would prefer the island not to house any trolls, but can't launch an overt war without harming the fairies. Letting them steal a couple crates of food and fabric every now and then does incites them to send out raiding groups at coming ships, so they can be fought a few at the time. Given their low birth rate, even killing a few a year leaves a dent in their population. And given how strong and hard to kill they are, the Amicale doesn't send anyone they might miss at them.
Sister has a very mischievous smirk in that last panel, makes me think she would run around with big John, just to upset her brother!
Oh she would, she would!
AHHAHAHA OMG I love her in the last panel!!
