    Naturally, we all forget that the golem guy has green skin as well.

    Well that answers the "Who was it?" questions. While she was pretty rotten in life, it's still a shame to see her desecrated like that. Does anyone know what she is? I'm not too good with my undead.

    Apparently Crystal was not, in fact, worth resurrecting. Not surprising.

    Ooookay. WTH. Seriously this is unexpected. Sounds to me like something may have happened between us last seeing bozzok and now, can't see the golem guy willingly working with the thieves guild. Not after the raid anyway.

    Is she undead, or a flesh golem? I'm guessing the former, in which case they'd better regroup with Roy ASAP because of his sword...

    Ohhhh! New text bubble type!

    I'm really curious what type of undead she is, or if she's a flesh golum, like other people have been saying.

    Perhaps Grubwiggler did the job for his own benefit - he's using the most powerful corpse around to get revenge on Haley for the multiple betrayals involved when she returned to Greysky.

    Don't forget. Hayley has cool wands now. It's probably "exactly the spell" she needs.

    This definitely strikes me as Undead Crystal rather than Golem Crystal. The golem wouldn't have her verbal tics.

    Wait, Crystal?! Of all the foes that could drag themselves up to get revenge for anything, it was her? That was.... not something I expected to see. Ever.

    Purple skin and funky text boxes? She doesn't look undead, but what else could she be?

    She's undead. Golems cannot speak.

    I expected Crystal to be revived, but not like this.

    Belkar's comment about her being redundant because Sabine is already her arch-nemesis gets better by the minute. It feels like a meta arms race to see who can be Haley's true rival.

    The stitches suggest Flesh Golem of some sort, however the mannerisms are inconsistent with a golem of any type. Perhaps she is a zombie that has been upgraded with parts from other corpses?

    Certainly caught me off guard.

    Let's see. Corporeal undead, human shape, no weapons, attacked with fists...a wight?
    You deliberately chose to pilot a SHD-2D; your argument is invalid.
