    Awesome, Giant!

    Frankly, sometimes I shudder to think about how some of the "half-" races came to be.

    Yeah, that made me laugh, too.

    Awww, Therkla's parents are lovely...

    Have you ever noticed, however, that when someone is half anything, it is always half human?

    What does this say about humans? Eh? That they are willing to sleep with any lifeform as long as it is moving?

    It's always the father who is human too.... (actually, hmm... wasn't Worf's mother the human half, which put pay to the whole "humans are too fragile" thing)

    So Therkla's behind all this. Not greatly surprising.

    And half-dragons... also not something to inquire deeply about.

    It's a parody of how people usually assume Half orcs usually get made.

    That's an old joke in some settings. Humans says "half-elf", and elfs says "half-human". For orcs it may just be for simplification

    No, no, you miss my point.

    My point being, you never hear of a half-elf/half-orc or similar. It's only the humans who seem to be obsessed with seducing all other lifeforms.

    Is it just me, or does Therkla's father look suspiciously similar to the convict from the battle of Azure City, as seen here.

    Coincidence? I think not!

    Hmm... was the half-dragon part a reference to 8-bit theater?

    Over there, Light Warriors had a pretty quiet trip back and plenty of painful images after seing witch and dragon getting busy...

    Someone around here made a pretty funny joke about that.

    HUMAN: (speaking to elf) Ha ha! You look like a girl!
    ELF: To a human, everything must look like a girl.
    HUMAN: What?
    ELF: Half-elves, half-orcs, half-ogres ...
    DWARF: Half-fiends, half-dragons ...
    HUMAN: Shut up!
    ELF: ....
    DWARF: ....
    HUMAN: ....
    ELF: Centaurs.

    This strip is a bit of a subversion, though, because it's usually implied that half-orcs come about as a union between orc male and human female.

    Still, it's cute.

    No, Worf was full-blooded Klingon, although he was adopted and raised by human parents. B'Elanna Torres was half-Klingon, but her father was the human half.

    Obviously, Banjo is more important than Elan-Elan would agree.

    Oooh, so could this mean that Therkla's the one giving grammar lessons? What a nice gal! She seems to have pretty good people skills too, and Lien isn't meant for a sacrifice, just bait.

    Although the orcs are apparently having an adverse affect on her own ability to speak -- she uses a lowercase "I" in "I'm half-human."

    Yes, humans are sluts.
