    Ah. I was wondering when and how Belkar would react.

    Hilarious head swap.

    I love the inherent humor in that Belkar is "pretend[ing] to have character growth", but he does anyway.

    Belkar has quickly turned into my favorite character. I love the development he has undergone. He was great before; now he is amazing. I find it humorous that he even called out the influence the cat is having on him.

    While this strip was not nearly as funny as its predecessor, it was a touching moment by Belkar and really showed the depth that even Belkar now possesses. It also shows why the OotS should not have split up.
    Thank you Ceika for the wonderful Avatar avatar!

    In an earlier comic, Belkar is moved to rescue two bounty hunters and friends who had been forced by Tarquin to fight each other in the arena. I think he's flashing back to that and now we get to see why Belkar was being so uncharacteristically generous; he displayed empathy towards the two bounty hunters by imagining himself and his cat in their place.


    If I'm right, the relevant comics are from here to here.

    Mr. Scruffy's face on Enor's body is creepy to me. Mr. Scruffy lapping up the potion is cute though.

    Also, is this like a slight flashback with Gannji and Enor? Perhaps we see Belkar's section next comic?

    Thanks Giant! Always a good day to see that the comics been updated.

    I'm not sure if this shows Belkar as having character development or not lol. Loved it, and good to see him doing something!

    He felt empathy, realizing that the two bounty hunters dueling would've been like him dueling his cat.

    Then he got annoyed because he thought it was Mr.Scruffy's fault.

    That was an adorable strip I love when Belkar shows any form of not being an evil jerk(I also love it when he's an evil jerk)!!!

    Nice, and a clear example that Mr. Scruffy is the only living thing in the world, other than himself, that Belkar cares for.

    Wow, I can't believe we got an "awwww" moment with Belkar!

    Also, it's just as well that Belkar took the potion, seeing as Haley has owed him one for almost 800 strips.

    Maybe Mr. Scruffy learned the "Summon Conscience" feat.

    The end of this comic is gold! I remember being somewhat surprised and upset when the lizardfolk were saved (not that I hated them, just that I thought it would have been a touching death scene). But this comic put it all in perspective

    Belkar and a cute moment - my head just asplode.

    So it appears that Mr Scruffy does indeed have a good influence on Belkar.
    Curious, though: where's Blackwing got to? Last we saw, he was hanging around the sparkly pile.

    And I want Vaarsuvius back.
