    Honestly, considering a) anyone who knows Cat would be aware that she has the foresight and malice of a gummy bear and b) the only thing they really know about her that couldn't be learned by taking a look at her is her name I doubt this guy will really be getting anything out of this.

    I mean the best way to not tell someone about something really is not knowing about it. Like they really don't know about it at all. So... yeah.

    There's a we missing in panel 3.

    I am assuming it's a group interrogation, but imagining it as a montage from everybody's interrogations is funnier.

    Pretty sure, it's a montage. It doesn't actually makes sense as a continuous conversation.

    They're clearly not? The Fallings are cyclical events, the Stormfallen have no memory of a time before that, and they age differently depending on their Falling

    Yeah, that's true.
    Then my second guess is alien invasion, they are preparing ground for the main fleet? Nah, that still doesn't explain their amnesia. I wonder what happens to them when they die. Do they go in a flash of light?
    My third guess - they are a form of geode. When you crack classical geode, you get crystals. When you crack crystal geode, you get these guys. When you crack them, what do you get?

    I believe we first saw him at the page 153 – "No Smoking".

    On page 186 – "That's What the Marks are For" - he screams "It's you". I guess he means: "It's you, the assassin we saw l last night" and not: "It's you, the girl my lady mutilated."

    He is addressed as "House guard commander" on the earlier page, so he can be privy to his lady's shenanigans, but, on the other hand - she only lives few years so he has probably been the commander for longer than she is alive and just does his job and nothing else.

    He seems as a nice guy, he even doesn't torture or hit a known associate of unknown (?) assassin (Page 216 – Under Duress). But this may be the setting (maybe they have advanced justice system, remember - Pellan told them to not tell them anything).

    It seems relatively constant when he's not wearing the helmet so I assume it's just artistic flare. Like how spiderman's mask changed eye size through decades of comics.

    And now we're learning more about the world! Shades aren't just bog-standard undead. They're liars, too. I don't think we've actually met any shades yet.

    I think he's just grasping straws after how great the interogation(s) went.
    Pure despair. Also, P didn't say he isn't a warrior either.

    Technically that was a implicit confirmation, but with Pellan's insistance on playing word games*... yeah, guard captain's tired and just wants something out of this waste on time and SAN points.

    How many castes have been explicitly mentioned in the comic? There's the warrior caste. There's the stormfallen. I guess the priests might be a caste? Those criminally marked are of course at the bottom—but I'm not sure they count as a caste.

    This is also the only piece of contemporary fiction I know of that showcases an explicit caste system, not just a hierarchy.

    There's also ... I could look up their name, but the genuinely white people. Who seem like an ancient people, now sharing the language and living space of their conquerors but socially distinct. Which isn't far off one explication how rl caste systems arise, what some regional lower castes in India pretty clearly are.
