    That's not something that's entirely out of the bounds of possibility for a regular human, though--the chameleon skin and the fangs realistically are.

    And the ears. She has the pointed ears.

    All of which can be explained away as being part of a costume.

    I wonder if Tarvek and Gil are going to have a bit of a rivalry over who figured it our first? In the playful friendly way they've been doing for awhile now.

    By "costume" I assume they mean Agatha as a mermaid. So, the plan was destined to fail, cause trouble with the cetaceans, keep the characters from defeating Lucy, and Lucy Victorius = End of All Life on Earth.

    Like the alien time being said, they really shouldn't need Tarvek's imaginary friend to tell them this.

    Gotta say, even with the jaegerdraught needing a ritual probably being a retcon, there's a lot of Zeetha behavior after that moment that look a little different with that in mind. Like the end of this one.

    Who knew trying to trick the god-whales with a fish costume was a terrible plan.

    To be absolutely fair, killing the entire planet over a costume sounds like a slight overreaction.

    Considering those are god-whales, the others are sparks, and in real life a war has been fought over a bucket, it all sounds pretty plausible.

    We don't know that's what would happen. For instance, when the subterfuge is discovered, the sea-dwellers might decide to have nothing more to do with the surface-dwellers--and that allows something else, that the two sets of people could have dealt with if they were working together, to wipe them out piecemeal. It doesn't require them to declare war on the surface because they were tricked.

    Would the end of everything timeline happen because of the costume or because of the ridiculous supply of weaponry on the costume?

    Also on the previous matter of Higgs being found out by Gil, I thought it was kind of given that Higgs was found out. Specifically right here. What I'm more surprised by is the Higgs didn't mark it as at least possible he blew his cover there.

    I'm not quite sure, but Gil and Trelawney's lines in the last panel suggest that the ridiculous weapons arsenal would sabotage the effectiveness of the disguise.

    Well if it's a normal goldfish it has succumbed to old age by now. If it's a Sparked up goldfish it's probably running a secret crime empire from its bowl in Gil's quarters on Castle Wulfenbach.

    It's a genius plan. Right up there with rigging a race to get enough money to buy weapons for a ship you traded to get the guns needed to rig the race.

    Err ...

    Also, where was the goldfish? (comic links?)

    Er, do you mean the goldfish Maxim killed? Pretty sure that was sometime before the comic even started, given the comment that he was moping for 50 years after he did it.

    Waaay back at the start of the comic, one of the many things that came spilling out of Agatha's overpacked storeroom, half-burying Gil, was a goldfish in a bowl. (Gil caught it, keeping it from shattering.) After Dr. Beetle died, Gil evidently took the goldfish back to Castle Wulfenbach with him. Agatha actually mentioned it fairly recently, saying Dr. Beetle had her feed it. The GG Wiki has various links, if anyone is still curious.

    I choose to believe it is the same goldfish as earlier in the comics, awakening its spark and time traveling back in time to meet up with Maxim and fight crime together.

    Fifty years might sound long, but remember, in Jäger years that's about a week.

    Some of the oldest are, or older. Each Heterodyne since Vlad (save for Bill and Barry) had their own batches of Jaegermonsters, IIRC.

    That's ... a lot of time.
