    I'm assuming it is. I wonder who revived him, though?

    It's not the same dragon:

    1.) This one has red eyes, not green.
    2.) This one has curvy horns, not straight.
    3.) This one is at least double the size.

    This is probably the other dragon's much-older mother, father, sibling, etc.

    Which means V is in deep trouble.

    EDIT: Black dragons can breathe water; it likely was hiding under the water and then rose up to make itself known at a key moment.

    Could be its mother/father?

    Just I remember it referring to its mother, and that one of the Oots'ers mentioning the cave having belonged to an older dragon.

    Got me baffled, that's for sure. One thing that suggests it ISN'T the same dragon as before is its eyes--the dragon V disintegrated had green eyes, this one has red ones. Question is, though, if it ISN'T the same dragon, how does it know his name?

    Wild Speculation Time!
    - The dragon is the same one V disintegrated ages ago.
    - The dragon is the son/daughter of the one V disintegrated ages ago.
    - The cake dragon is a lie. (The dragon is an illusion; nevermind the water-drip tactile component).
    - The dragon is some other fiend disguising itself as a dragon to unknown end.
    - The dragon is V's 'mate,' polymorphed, finally having tracked V down.
    - The dragon is the nose of Dr. Verlucci, returned on the anniversary of the day V betrayed him!

    That's what I guessed, minus polymorphing, so we don't know V's gender.

    I'm agreeing with those who said it's a parent of the one V disintegrated. Clearly a "force of darkness" from V's drawn out last line. Should be cool since V wasted all that juice on an annoyance. Bat-belt's a little thin at the moment, I'm guessing! Might be time for the Giant to do a cutaway, just to screw with us! :)

    FOUR WORDS!!!

    "The forces of darkness"

    Is this it? Is V on the path to ultimate power? I don't recall the exact quote. Looking for it now but I just had to be the first to jump on that if right.


    Edit: Quote goes "by saying the right four words to the right being at the right time for all the wrong reasons."

    Meh, I could be reaching. Still, it has a certain level of appropriateness.

    Hmm... maybe that was the "Important Client" the oracle mentioned a while back, who went there to ask him who disintegrated his son/relative.

    Here you see the dangers of concentrating too hard on the task at hand.

    The dragon is likely kin of the previous dragon. and

    somehow Qarr is going to rescue V, at least in some degree, which will put V in a much more vulnerable situation.

    I don't think they do, MisterLeirus. The Oracle idea would make sense regarding how the dragon knew V's name, unless it could scry.
