    True. Unlike Cat he at least knows "appropriate" isn't something you can eat.

    Yes (and iirc so is Cat's normal outfit) but the dress is bedclothes.

    Huh, I thought the Fallings were singular events. Interesting to learn there are cycles.

    Also that means Mel is two or three years old and Cat is around twenty. I wonder how old Pellan is. Do wr know how long he's been cursed?

    Yeah, this lore drop really exposes how utterly alien the Stormfallen are. Even the most precocious human toddlers are, well, toddlers. Those of First Falling grow up extraordinarily quickly, but they also have to take in an inhuman amount of knowledge. They also seem to have psychic abilities, as implied in #211. If Mel is aware of everything her inferiors are doing, that means that she knows what the party is taking about. The second panel of #213 has a servant eye the group. Through her, Mel might be doing so, too.

    Cat mentions how ridiculously bright these Stormfallen are. It's possible that the Glass Eye (#16) was built by one of First Falling, and then no one had the sheer intelligence and interest to continue to develop them. Therefore, there exists only one telescope in this world. This suggests that there are other one-off inventions around the world, built by Stormfallen that then burnt out.

    I'm more intrigued about their emotional intelligence and their lived experience. Three years is an extremely short times to learn how to adult. Kind of puts our last antagonist of First Falling in a different light.

    He didn't even have the beard back when he was a bandit leader.

    Though TBF, I grew my mustache pretty much by accident and now I'm deeply attached to it, so even if it started out as a Depression Beard, I'm not surprised he's decided to keep it.

    To be fair, if he can actually grow a proper beard he might as well flaunt it.
    Me? The only looks I can pull off are "shaved" and "unshaved", so my sympathy is limited.

    Also, P going from glowing-eyes-of-doom-y protector of innocent, fair maidens (And Bortha) to "yeah no, I'm done with this." in a (nonexistent) heartbeat is pure gold.

    Are you talking about Vis? He was of second falling, right? I thought only Mel was of first.

    In any case, I think you and I are intrigued by the same things! Cat and Vis are young and childish and seem to lack serious emotional control and wisdom—just like humans. Mel is, like, three years old and seems to have a lot of control over herself and over others. If there's really such a divide between the first rankers and the others, I imagine that Mel wouldn't be throwing tantrums like Vis when things don't go her way. And indeed, her first flashback appearance showed her disturbingly calm.

    With how done Isan looks you have been doing this all day, Mr. Guard Captain.
    I wonder if Isan tried saying the truth before giving the old man the silent treatment.

    Not that I'd blame the captain for disbelieving that version.
    It is a bit ridiculous.

    I mean if this has been going on a while it might help Isan to feel a bit better at least
    Temporarily.
    Until he suddenly feels much worse because Guard Captain beats him up for it.
