    Not Lord Tyrinar after all, then. But very Lawful Evil.

    So I went to the forums and it went from 721->722. First time that ever happened to me.

    Anyway, cue theories that this guy is Tyrinar/Elan's father/Girard/whatever.

    Well, Haley sure is a lot better in melee than she thinks she is.

    Nice comic!

    The helmet's different, true, but Elan is still wearing that outfit he picked up in Cliffport...

    So few responses, thought I just hadn't noticed the change.

    It was good, worked well right up until Haley had killed them all and had to surrender again. Just bugged me for some reason (not that that matters, but I'm the kind of guy who likes to express my opinion on the interwebz for stranger's pleasure).

    Thanks as always for the update.

    Well, nothing we've seen yet indicates evil.

    Okay, except the outfit, that's kind of a giveaway in the OotSverse.

    edit: The casual "play with the rapier because I've got complete control of the situation" move was pretty cool.

    This raises the question, will Blackwing say anything to Haley?

    I bet he's Haley's father!

    He didn't attack Haley, just bullrushed her; he cared for V to cast his spell, telling him about the sharp rocks; he immediately presented an option to Elan to save her life.

    Awww, daddy cares for his daughter...

    Well, Lawful, anyway. I don't think we can make a good/evil decision in so few strips (though I'm sure some could).

    However, if it is General Tyrinar (formerly Lord Tyrinar), and/or Nale/Elan's Father, then Plot Ahoy!

    It's totally Elan's father. That's so awesome.

    Cue Darth Vader moment: "You're not my father! That's not possible!"

    Well, he does bear some resemblance to Elan's father... or more precisely, Elan's father's outfit. I'm pretty sure that's what we're supposed to think.

    bad grammer in the last panel. I suggest "Damn it! Now I have to find someone to capture me."

    Assuming that it is Elan's father, does this mean he recognizes him? Him as Elan, not as Nale. He hasn't seen Elan since he was an infant, but he ought to be able to tell that he's not Nale, at least.

    I don't think so. Think it was a flashback, possibly during the Azure City Saga. Too lazy to hunt down the actual strip, maybe someone will help me out.

    No actually, it means she's going to have to let them capture her.

    Nope, flashbacks in the strip, some quite recently.

    Where do we see what Elan's dad looks like?

    I'm being reminded of one of my favorite scenes from Babylon 5.

    "Bugger, now I have to wait for someone to wake up..."

    Nice takedowns, Haley.

    Well, the general wears a big, big mask: he could well be her father in disguise, and as we know that Ian Starshine's present location should be somewhere around, my hypothesys is not so bad.

    Here we go!

    Oh, Rich, there's a typo in the second-to-last panel. There's no period in between "I surrender" and "Just don't hurt Haley!"
