Time for a status update! Some...good news sprinkled with some "annoying" news X"D. HAY but it's better they talk about Merek than the Council, right? Merek won't kill them X)

Hay everyone, meet ZEN! Merek's affectionately named "pain in the a*s" informant <3. Zen here was created by the lovely AzureXTwilight of Re:Set fame FOR SoO! THANKS Azure! I love him <33333
Go check out her comic! <3

Zen is the best pain in the neck I have ever seen in my life. And that's got to be a nickname - no way did his parents oh-so-conveniently give him that name. Love the open eyed panel with Zen in the middle there, especially those sparkles. Perfection.

The curly line connecting his speech bubbles in the bottom left hand panels are probably my favorite part of this entire page. It's a teeny little detail that adds SO much personality to Zen's speech. I love it. I can HEAR him talking.

As for Merek... the poor grumpy bear just needs some hugs. And a do-over (or a refund) on the past couple of days, probably. It's not been easy on him lately.

On the other hand, his off-duty clothes are amaaaaaazing. :]

Fantastic work, as always!

LOL thanks so much Blue! I'm thrilled that you're hearing the right tone here haha..Zen has a very distinct way of talking, I imgagine X"D. Amazing what just one small detail can do <33

Hahaha o man.. Merek would PAY to get a refund for the last couple of days lolol. He's kinda the uh.. punishment-bearer X"D. So far no one has been more affected by what HIZRUK'S been doing than him X"D

I'm so happyyyyy people are liking his outfit-- I"M TRYING X"D. Thanks for everything!!! <333

Ah, the too happy for his own good despite his profession type of character informant.

What is it with informants that always seems to make them so cheery regardless of how non-cheery their clients are? XD

Perfect! He's just the right kind of cheerful and chipper to irritate the life out of a stressed out Merek. (Like, perhaps Merek would pay him to leave him alone for some quiet time…or at the very least be more somber XD)
Also, love Merek's out-of-uniform look!

So they think Old man Zak was attacked by bandits? They *really* believe that?!?! What about that one person he was talking with before Kal attacked him, surely they realize he was nowhere near bandit territory, right???

Zen's annoying. AND he's cheerfully and deliberately aware of that.

I love him already! :D

Poor Merek, though. Positive people are the absolute worst when you're trying to have a good sulk (which Merek is definitely doing, never mind what he says). And Zen clearly knows it, so he doesn't have the defense that he doesn't know what he's doing. Also, are those Merek's civilian clothes? They're a lot less ... slobby than I expected.

Except for the fact that he probably has all sorts of touchy information, I would dearly like to see Zen mess with Kalverik. Do you mind fanfics? I might take a stab at writing that.

Hahaha omg deliberately annoying is soooo accurate XD. Worst kind ofperson to deal with when you are sulking..which is DEFINITELY what Merek is doing and is good at X"D

LOL o wow..I think Zen would find Kal uh... mm...MUCH less patient with his tactics X"D. Do I mind fan fics? HECK NO I DON"T MIND! SHOOT..those are like dreams come true! <333

Hahahaha thank you so much!!! <3

Omigosh I'm so behind on commenting Serpy-kins, I'm so sorry :'D please forgive me! I've been reading!!

Merek in normal duds is much love, I mean, his umbra outfit is all official-looking and stuff of course but I really like his black and silver ensemble <3 X3

Zen is such a sneaky little cutie pie too XD <3

Speculation and general unrest is not a good thing, but I think overall this can only mean that the council's hold on everyone is going to continue to be in increased jeopardy over the next few chapters... and more irrational the council will get in trying to justify their dictatorship. Oh boy. >_>

I was excited to be able to put all our Umbra friends in civilian clothes this chapter-- hehe we'll see a few more before things are through! ;D

Indeed it seems the Council is just making things more and more difficult for themselves--they seem flustered! Hehe and empire built on lies is an empire destined to crumble :'D.
