    Not very many female sparks in Europe foe Othar to hunt.

    He doesn't hunt them in particular, but, had he succeeded in executing Agatha, then he would have killed 1/6 of the contemporary female sparks I can remember right now (the light technician, Agatha, Lu, the two Queens, Thorpe). He could have had a disproportionate effect on their numers.

    I think the general belief in Europa is that most female sparks are rounded up by unsavory male sparks or burned as witches; In practice I suspect many of those who escaped the "burned as witches" option were rounded up by the Geisterdamen and ended up in Arronev's machine (I grant Arronev counts as an unsavory male spark, but he didn't do the rounding up).

    The novels cover it in a bit more detail, but they are in the attic and I don't intend going back up there 'till bedtime...

    I wonder who Pookie's "they" are. Could be her sisters, could be something else...

    Part of that might be the pale blue eyes. They look a bit different in each panel, like they can't get the color consistently.

    Or the change is intentional, they're black when she first makes her Big Entrance.

    I'm pretty sure he doesn't specifically go after one gender or another. I think it's the Geisterdamen.

    If anyone is interested, there are some GG pages without balloons here: http://arcanetimes.com/girl-genius/ I was surprised at how good some of them look.

    This is in that page, too.
