    Default Where the heck IS everybody? [spoilers]

    Updated through 502

    This is to help me keep straight who's where and doing what in the strip. Hopefully it will help others as well.

    Below lists the (last-known) location and status [including spells currently affecting them] of characters in OotS. I'm only including characters who have a chance at reappearing again (not including ghosts that aren't special).

    Today is: nearly four months after the fall of Azure City

    OotS
    Roy: dead (with an arrow in a very uncomfortable spot), being hidden in Azure City by Haley and Belkar, while his spirit is back in Celestia's Waiting Room scrying on the mortal realm (needs Resurrection) [his body has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Elan: uninjured and presumably full of spells, at sea aboard Hinjo's junk failing to convince Hinjo to go back for Haley
    Haley: lightly injured, hiding in Azure City with Belkar and Roy's corpse (she also has Roy's greatsword and the Booty Talisman) [she has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Durkon: unhurt and presumably full of spells, at sea aboard Hinjo's junk having just performing a wedding for Daigo and Kazumi
    Vaarsuvius: unhurt but out of spells, at sea aboard Hinjo's junk heading off to rest [V has not been seen since the fall of Azure City, but Elan implies that the mage is still on the junk]
    Belkar: unhurt [Mark of Justice], hiding in Azure City with Haley and Roy's corpse [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]

    "Team Evil" (BBEG)
    Xykon: unhurt but running low on spells, outside the ruined castle Cloistering Azure City [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Redcloak: unhurt but running low on spells, near the docks of Azure City kicking himself for lack of foresight [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    MitD: unhurt, in the middle of Azure City dragging O-Chul along [it has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Tsukiko: unhurt and with plenty of spells, outside the ruined castle admiring Xykon's headgear [she has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]

    BBEG #2
    Kubota: unhurt, in the refugee fleet on his yacht, plotting Evil [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Unknown Evil Entity: presumably unhurt, in the refugee fleet on Kubota's yacht, plotting Evil [it has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Unknown Female Ninja Leader: unhurt, in the refugee fleet on Kubota's yacht, plotting Evil [she has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]

    citizens of Azure City
    (Note: No paladin has yet cast a spell on-screen.)
    Hinjo: unhurt, aboard his junk telling Elan they're not going back to Azure City (yet)
    --Argent: in the celestial realms, though presumably he can return if called [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Miko: dead, split in twain in the ruins of the castle (needs Resurrection and a 13th level cleric)
    O-Chul: paralyzed, heavily injured and possibly dead, in the middle of Azure City being dragged by the MitD (if dead, would need Raise Dead; if only paralyzed, would need Remove Paralysis) [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Lien: unhurt, aboard Hinjo's junk celebrating Daigo and Kazumi's wedding
    --Razor: unhurt, was following Hinjo's junk with Lien astride, now presumably in the celestial realms [he has not been seen since the fall of Azure City]
    Sangwaan: presumed dead, chomped and flung by the zombie dragon (if dead, would need Raise Dead)
    Chang: dead, at the northern breach (potentially trampled by the army charging the breach-- whether he was is not known. If he was trampled, he'd need a Resurrection, otherwise a Raise Dead will work.)
    Kazumi: unhurt and eight weeks pregnant, aboard Hinjo's junk getting married to Daigo by Durkon
    Daigo: unhurt, aboard Hinjo's junk getting married to Kazumi by Durkon
    Captain Axe: unhurt, aboard Hinjo's junk at Daigo and Kazumi's wedding
    Mr. Scruffy: last seen running from the Throne Room when Shojo was murdered [whereabouts unknown since the castle exploded]

    Linear Guild (Active)
    Nale: lightly injured and with most of his spells remaining, flying away from Azure City on fiend's wings
    Sabine: unhurt, flying away from Azure City carrying both Nale and Thog
    Thog: unhurt (though his tummy's rumbling), flying away from Azure City on fiend's wings

    Linear Guild (Former)
    Leeky: last seen leaving Cliffport with Pompey
    Pompey: last seen leaving Cliffport with Leeky
    Hilgya: last seen leaving Dorukan's dungeon in tears

    Order of the Scribble
    Dorukan: defeated by Xykon (see Start of Darkness for further info)
    Lirian: missing, disappeared when her forest was burned down (see Start of Darkness for further info)
    Girard: whereabouts unknown, presumed either dead or at Girard's Gate
    Serini: whereabouts unknown, last seen stocking Kraagor's tomb

    Clan Greenhilt
    Julia: at Warthog's in Cliffport
    Eugene: his spirit is stuck in Celestia's Waiting Room until the Blood Oath is fulfilled (or he can manage to skirt the rules again)
    Sara: in her house on Mt. Celestia
    Eric: in his mother's house on Mt. Celestia
    Horace: in Sara's house on Mt. Celestia

    Others
    Celia: at Law School, but just a Booty Talisman away
    Julio Scoundrél: last seen flying off into the night from Azure City
    Flumphs: having brunch in Cliffport

    Not that this is supposed to be all-inclusive, but... who'd I miss?

    Heh. The Flumphs can be anywhere at any time that the plot (or comedic devices) demands, which is why I didn't include them. But you're right, they were last seen having brunch in Cliffport.

    [edit] On second thought, it is plot-relevant that they are anywhere but Azure City, so on the list they go!

    Eugene Greenhilt: MIA (He was last seen in the throne room, but there's no evidence he's still there now.)

    Zz'dtri: Carried off by lawyers. (What? He could come back!)

    Chang, Death Knight, and Grand Larceny Guy?

    How about the Order of the Scribble:
    Lirian: Presumed dead after Xykon/Redcloak destroyed her gate.
    Dorukan: Dead, killed by Xykon.
    Soon Kim: Ghost-martyr in Azure City Throne Room
    Girard Draketooth: MIA
    Serini Toormuck: MIA
    Kraagor: Dead, killed by Snarl

    Actually, it's the Eye of Fear and Flame that's blasting the Southern Assault Force. The Huecuva is somewhere between Redcloak and the walls.

    Lessee:

    anyone: General Chang... enh. He's dead, but probably high enough level to consider being raised, especially being a general and all. I'll put him on, till he's either raised or gets his state funeral (or Azure City is razed, whichever).

    SPoD: I'm not including ghosts because they don't follow the "normal" rules of mobility-- that it, they could pop up anywhere at any time. Ghosts would include people we've seen as ghosts (like Eugene), people who have died and refuse to come back (Shojo), and people who have died and most likely won't be raised or resurrected (Grand Larceny Guy is way down the list of people to be raised in Azure City). Maybe I should have a separate section for ghosts, though it could quite easily become too long and cumbersome to be useful....

    "Carried off by lawyers" is probably more final than death, since the lawyers wouldn't even allow the ghost to return. So Zz'drti's not on the list.

    You're right about the Order of the Scribble. Half of them will go on the list.

    Regarding the Death Knight: once an undead is destroyed, it's gone for good (notable exception is the lich's phylactery, of course). So that particular Death Knight isn't coming back.

    Tolkien_Freak: I think my statement on the huecuva's whereabouts was unclear. It has indeed joined the southern assault force (in the 1st panel of 450, the huecuva is between Belkar and the speech balloon that starts "Ah well") but hasn't appeared to start fighting yet.

    happyturtle: [smacks forehead] Yep, Kubota and the rest of Azure City's nobility definitely need to be on the list as well.

    I'm not so sure about adding the outsider animals and other critters that aren't on the prime material plane full-time. 'Sides, for Windstriker to reappear, Miko would have to atone and regain her paladin abilities. Till she shows evidence of being able to learn from her mistakes, atonement's not happening.

    452: Updated conditions of V and Redcloak, and also noted that Redcloak is riding a fiendish mammoth, per the Giant's note.

    [Added:] I just realized that Gen. Chang's body is at the northern breach and is about to get trampled by thousands of hobgoblins into a fine powder. What are the odds he's coming back from that, since it'd probably take a Resurrection at that point to bring him back?

    Question: Didn't Redcloak order the southern attack force to fall back and join up with the northern force attacking the breach? If so, Belkar has got to be feeling pretty lonely right about now. I'd expect him to either climb back up the walls, head north to keep fighting or head northeast to where Roy's body is lying (if only to get his ring back).

    Nope. Hinjo specifically asks Lien to "hold my junk until it is fully loaded." Since this is the last we've seen of her, we don't know whether she stayed with the boat when it launched (or even if it launched), or if she's helping other refugees escape, or if she headed back to AC, or something else entirely. Hinjo asks another person (a warrior or fighter, but not a paladin) about his package.

    Yes, he did give that order. But, we don't yet know what the southern attack force actually does, if they even get the orders, let alone what Belkar's reaction would be. (I'm guessing somewhere around enraged indignation.) Heck, we don't know yet what the reactions are of the people on the wall-- but I doubt anyone would miss the entire army charging the breach (crappy Spot checks notwithstanding).

    Yeah, now that I can get back on the fora, I can do so.

    Tharr: the demon roaches are always hanging around the MitD, since he tends to leave crumbs. And Celia's on the list.

    SnailMan: we can't tell. We can only hope that the army went north of Roy's body. Otherwise, I hope someone's still around who can cast Resurrect.

    Updates for 453: updated conditions for Hinjo and Durkon, and removed the now-dead (again) Huecuva. Also noted those whom we have yet to see the reactions of to the charge into the breach.

    I know you aren't tracking outsider animals, but I can't help noting:

    Argent: In the celestial realms healing from being poisoned. (Cannot return until tomorrow if we assume paladins can summon their mount once per day.)

    Yeah, I agree with moving Tsukiko to the BBEG list, but not about renaming the list to "Team Evil". Techinically the Linear Guild would be included in that list, and I'd like to keep the LG separate from Xykon and his minions.

    happyturtle: I think I might have to make an exception for Argent, since his (her?) location is relevant to the battle.
