Hey Tony, by the way, are there “real” animals in Endstone’s universe?
That is a really good question. I do not think that they are actually sub-human, so if there are no “normal animals” it would make for a very interesting ecosystem.
They are called ‘higher animals’, which means there must be lower animals. Like the ones we know.
Also fun fact: real-life deers can in fact be very agerssive, expecially the males near the mating season. Like this:
Great video and good catch, Fywillan. I’d forgotten about that line of dialogue. You know the Endstone story better than me, LOL. 🙂
And without spoiling anything, yes there are “real” animals. The story just hasn’t presented an opportunity to show them yet. There are birds, and small mammals like rats, but the larger animals are all humanoid. And don’t forget Kyri has the skull of a “real” deer tattooed on her back. That’s the symbol of the goddess that her family-herd worships.
This sets up a rather unique ecosystem where the humanoids take on the roles of predator/prey and this is reinforced by their various religions.
I thought the little animals would be little people like leprechauns and gnomes.
There are small humanoid animals in the Endstone universe, just not teeny-tiny, fairy-small ones. 🙂
BTW, hunters have been attacked by deer.
Oh my deer,she’s gonna pulverize the old dragon 🙂
Now it’s evident where all this anger comes from…
Yet,there’s a kind of moral dillema here.
If I am correct,it is stated in earlier issues,that the rocking of Dragonstone can lead one to madness.
So,is Drakyl,really responsible for his actions?
Should he meet Death by Kyri’s hands?
Great question. Actually it’s the Banestone that leads to madness, but point taken. It’s my mistake for not making it clear, but Drakyl murdered Pablo Montaine in order to steal the Banestone, so Drakyl has an ambitious, villainous streak running through him. Cole for example, rocked the Banestone as a last resort when she was threatened. Still, the “God of the Banestone” is able to call out to people and influence them slightly, but murder is going beyond the pale. Again, great question. 🙂
My bad-it seems my memory isn’t as strong as it used to be,maybe I should eat more carrots 🙂
However,I just wanted to point out that murder,no matter how justified it is,it is still murder.
Kyri was an innocent creature-as all animals are.
The loss of innocense leads to 3 possible option-one loses all inhibitions and becomes a villain,leads a self destructing way of life being unable to live with oneself,or becomes a crusader,so none else has to go through the same circumstances.
In my point of view,Kyri and Jon have the same goal-they want to end the suffering and only the means change.
I predict that sooner or later,we will see that Jon went through the same stuff,someone,somehow corrupted him and he wants to set things straight,so none else will have the chance to repeat it.
Vengeance is a strong motive-so is Guilt.
This comic keeps getting better and better!!!!
I like those three options for the loss of innocence. Kyri is definitely a crusader. And Jon is motivated by guilt. His sins are heavy and his quest for redemption will be his arc through the rest of this story,
Deer God, this is an awesome comic, bro.
