    Holey Brotherhood
    Pros:
    Know about the rifts
    Have some investment in them
    Only appear in one panel
    Wouldn't be the first time a throw away gag morphed into something more meaningful

    Cons:
    Appear to be nearer Dorukans Gate than North Pole by the background
    It's implied the Scribblers killed them all
    Girard said they were the dumbest villains he'd encountered

    Considering Girard's opinion of Soon, I'm not sure I trust his assessment of people that much.

    We will probably find out whether his assessment of the Paladin in question was correct or not... Soon.

    This is the character appearance thread, to find the characters you’ll have to go through it the old fashioned way, looking through the list in the first 5-ish posts until you find the person you’re looking for (I think the people I was reminding everyone about are under the cameos section).

    They could still be someone from the prequel. If a character who has only appeared in one page in a prequel shows up in the main comic, it wouldn't take much explaining for people who haven't read the prequel. Firuk was only in two pages in OtOOtPCs, but strip 1096 explains everything you need to know about him to people who haven't read it.

    I want to be on the list with MitD please.

    I know of no actual appearance (where we actually see what he looks like), but there is the SoD shot of his cell where the floorboards show through him, and as someone said the delusion scene where it all appeared to be over, but wasn't, I'd kind of count the delusion bit as another non-appearance myself because it was a halucination/mirage, but that's because of the one in SoD, otherwise it might do. I'm not saying it's a great choice, but the described role fits all that we already expect the MitD's plot arc to become, and I don't have any other guesses I want to make.

    It would be kind of awesome if it was an Eastern God (super duper unlikely if you ask me) and they could forge a five color sword of order that could slay the Snarl for good.

    Although at that point if I was a god I'd end the world anyway somewhere in the next 1000 or so years because imagine how cool a five color world would be!

    Redcloak and another goblin are also on GDGU, on page #115, and even in grayscale their skin tone is noticeably different from the former Supreme Leader's (and the other hobgoblins').

    Technically the Snarl has only appeared in person once, when it attacked Laurin and her team. Every other appearance was in Elan crayon drawings.

    My guess is one of the northern gods. An interesting case may be Fenrir: he seems very aggressive and chaotic and voted for destroying the world, but he can't be happy about what Xykon is doing at Kraagor's tomb, either.

    Didn't say it wasn't between 1 and 10. I said it was cheap (and I picked it because I knew most people thinking of a trick would go for pi first. I also considered tau). See the other post I made with the very rational and incredibly unguessable number for a better example of why it's so cheap.

    It does directly show that this is the exact hobbo group that takes down Azure City later, which does have thematic elements even if you assume the Supreme Leader is different. But it makes more sense for him to be the same, yes.

    Should have read more carefully, thought I was the first to suggest this. But the World within the Snarl makes this a decent possibility. The Snarl cannot stop itself from striking out, but if the world is destroyed, its pet world will be destroyed as well. A creature born of hate and destruction trying to create something good.

    Kraagor, who was still alive when he was sealed inside the gate as the Snarl's emissary.

    And yeah, I pretty much agree that these are the most likely options, though I’d like them swapped around in my rankings.

    I'd like to suggest the Big Game Hunters from SoD. They'd be getting on in years, but a big dungeon full of exotic monsters would be worth checking out. They may well have useful knowledge about the creatures encountered therein. (It would also fit into my theory about what happened to Redcloak's niece.)

    Well, since people keep mentioning Giggles, what about Eliza from strip 960a?

    Shoulderpads Guy is sounding intriguing enough at this point... if it can be confirmed he never appeared anywhere else in canon.

    My list is now:

    1) Suzy Finklestein
    2) Ivy
    3) King of Nowhere.
    That comment was made before Geoffs involvement with Ians capture was known, and learning too much about Ivy might have given the game away. Now she's appeared and wasn't apparently capable of fighting Bozzok (who is kind of like an evil rubbish Worf), I'm not really seeing how her allegiance will be especially useful at this point.

    Edit: double checked timings. That comment was made in 2011... Ivy, and Geoffs involvement in Ians capture, weren't revealed till 2014.

    Other ideas occurred to me: Randy, Jeff (Sabine's ex from bonus strip #252a), and Therkla's parents.
    THE SCRYING EYE AT THE END OF STRIP #698 WAS ZZ'DTRI'S (SOURCE)
