    I think this has been mentioned before, but putting people in positions of government merely because they fell from the sky is not exactly ideal.

    I mean, it probably also helps that they can zap people who don't agree with them.

    (Not that that's a basis for good government either, just in case anyone thinks I prefer electricity over elections.)

    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    I'm actually pretty sure picking someone who didn't fall from great heights would be the better choice.

    Does it still count as falling if they managed to stick the landing?

    Pellan?
    He's a bit thin-skinned.
    He has little weight problem .
    His teeth are great, but his gums...

    I remember someone mentioning that those of first falling may seek to extend their brief lives. Maybe she's interested in Pellan's curse?

    I mean, considering Stormfallen literally, well, fell from the sky, I'd presume they have a slightly higher chance of doing that.

    Yeah, I’m also lowkey suspecting Pellan’s a girl; the theory’s been around for a while I believe.

    Actually, was Pellan ever explicitly referred to a male?
    Preferably by the skeleton themself?

    I mean, there's the "Isn't Pellan a girl's name?" "It's a warrior's name." exchange (Not that those are mutually exclusive), but even that is potentially misleading.
    The objection might be well over being called a child (girl instead of woman) instead of the implication that P's female.
    Or it is a matter on emphasis. Pellan is a warrior, academy trained and all, not some random traveler who is halfway descent with a blade.

    My personal theory is "I don't even know." I just think it's odd how the characters are choosing to avoid the issue. Is Pellan gender-mysterious in-universe too, or something?

    My first thought was actually that they're doing it because they're not entirely sure whether Pellan counts as a person.

    *shrug* We've seen women warriors in this world. It seems to me like there's no point in saying "Isn't Pellan a woman's name?" if Pellan isn't a guy or at least appears to be one. Yeah, sure, skeleton, but in that case, wouldn't the priests have just assumed they were wrong and Pellan was a woman?

    It wouldn't surprise me given how careful this story has been with Pellan's pronoun (I haven't been able to find a 'he', though thief-lady-whose-name-I-forget did once refer to pellan as 'hero', and in 149 Pellan is called 'it') but I doubt it.

    Frankly, it probably doesn’t matter too much? Pellan’s gender isn’t even in the top 10 mysteries of this comic.

    And yet it keeps coming up.
    That and Pellan's age/how long ago he was cursed.
    Which is kind of a hilarious combination now that I think about it.

    Didn't mean to imply that.
    I just did a reread yesterday and was a bit amused to notice that the comments keep going back to that topic.

    Since her action does not effect a change in the level of ambient light, it is fairly clear that this is merely her true age showing: this is a playful, childish gesture of little import.
    (Alternatively, she's about to blast someone with all the power of the sun or something, but how likely is that? Right?)
