Chapter 51 : page 8

Chapter 51 : page 8

Postby Kern » Mon Apr 03, 2017 4:27 am

Chrys learn that she is to lead guards.
This just continues the series of misunderstanding and failed plots as the characters try to up each other all the time. But in this more calm chapter there's no fighting. Did Snad know about nir's condition? Will she ever recover? Is Nir really that bad? Would Chrys have gone through with the assasination? Would she have gone as far as torture? well there won't be an answers for most of those thing. Nir'naya will continue on however, what she'll be after the time skip now that she went through all this is up in the air.
To go a bit deeper about the character of Chrys. from her point of view, she feel overwhelmed on all side by other people actions going past her. She feel she can't do anything to stop anyone from plotting and scheming. Yet, there's at least one person who see it otherwise : Zala. From Zala's point of view her daughter does a great job. Just trying to keep up means Zala get informations. And if she get informations maybe next time she won't be surprised by Snad's moves. So one person overwhelming failures is another person's success . I don't know if anyone will catch that just by reading the comic but its what i tried to show in a few pages.

Zala may intend for Chrys to be in a better position to gain information, but this places her under far greater scrutiny. It makes it that much easier for Snadya to monitor her every move...especially if Nir is under her sway.

Oh, ok so the silhouette was that guy. Mystery solved.

Though I refuse to believe he was ever sober.

Apparently Zala wasn't submitting as meekly as she appeared to be when we left them off.

Heh, wonder how the other guardsmen will feel taking orders from a kid. Course, in the run up to this she was ordering them around already.

Yes. Called it. Hoped for it. Worried the opposite was about to occur. But damn if there's not gonna be a decent Captain again!

"You're Ill'haress now." Ariel's ears droop from the realization.

"You're Captain of the Guard now!" Chrys' ears perk up in surprise.

"You're... well, we don't know what you are now." Kiel shrugs it off, nibbles Nau's ears.

She only has to protect Zala and possibly Snad from Silice....and anyone else the two of them might have pissed off.....easy as pie, right?

...Well color me intrigued.

On the one hand I trust in Chrys' intelligence and political savviness. On the other hand, being the head of the imperial guard is to have ones ethics and loyalty subjugated to the most brutal crucible that Chelian politics has to offer. One way or another, this shall be interesting to watch.

Indeed I suspect he was right about Snad underestimating Zala but I have little doubt she found ways to make that work for her anyway.

lol :D I called Al'tesh too, wooo! \o/ And poor Chrys, I think that's the last job she wanted. Still, being in charge of Nir means she can keep an eye on HER all the better (and if Commissar Nir gets in the way, a cup of tea can be handy...watch your step, Nir }:3 )

Chrys: "Al'tesh, I want you to be my witness." :@
Al'tesh: "Sure. Whatever." :(
Chrys: "Now, I am taking the second nuclear key from Nir'naya..." :@

You mean the position that was held by that fuckup Nirnaya who despite failing left and right somehow still managed to stick to the job without anyone mumbling a bad word?

I feel silly forgetting to mention that - yeah, not many guard left to complain.

I wonder whatever happened to the old drider guy....
