    Default Sigdi is a badass.

    Seriously. I love this dwarf. She casually puts Hilgya back in her place, and she does it so adroitly that Hilgya can't even complain. And now we find she's gotten Hilgya to leave Kudzu in a safe place, as she should have been doing all along.

    I love badass grandmothers. She reminds me of my own grandma, actually: Short, stern, German, undemonstrative, and as loving as a person could possibly be. My grandma made my life, just by treating me like a human being and never doubting me. She's now 89 years old and uses a cane, but she's still as strong as she always was. And I can totally picture her putting an evil cleric in her place and making her stop wearing a babyshield.

    Hooray for Sigdi Thundershield!

    Yeah, I loved the way she takes Sigdi to school. "It's part of being a mother. You'll see."

    Is it too early to start printing "Sigdi Thundershield is my co-pilot" bumper stickers?

    I like how Hilgya just budges when Sigdi and Minrah stand up to her.

    Sigdi is who Batman wants to be when he grows up, because she's just that awesome.

    I find it somewhat ironically comedic that Hilgya isn't cowed by ~like 5 15-level adventurers, but gets the (O_O) expression in front of 5th-level Minrah and one-armed Sigdi.

    They're so awesome.

    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles don’t hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, can’t be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    The existence of this thread is a fantastic thing. Let me add my voice too! Woo Sigdi! Seriously she has quickly become one of my favorite characters. Tough, wise, kind, hilarious. I did not expect to see her in the comic other than in flashbacks and I am pleasantly surprised!

    It is blue for a bunch of physics reasons, but everything is the colour that it is for a bunch of physics reasons. Why treat the sky differently?

    And the only way you can perceive Sigdi right now is "badass."

    Or "mother", if you're Durkon. ;)

    Sigdi does, sadly, have one flaw, albeit less pronounced than Mr. Burlew's other female characters (including Lauron): she still invites fan shipping, for example with O-Chul in the Strip 1162 thread.

    That's not her fault. It's the fault of some sillyheaddedposters on the internet.
