#158: Lying

Getting his pants put on fire would be him getting off easy. :p

Okay, two things learned:
1. I think we finally got the name of our pink-haired fireball-throwing lady (even if she's apparently still a bad healer): Althea.
2. NEVER PISS HER OFF, now that she's easily capable of the mentioned fireball-throwing.

I like her more every minute. Sadly, we won't see her turn the CEO into a tiny pile of ash. But maybe she'll melt the Crystal in one or two pages, who knows?

Those Crystals probably prevented her from burning down the whole building with that temper.

Insert comparison to real world religious fanaticism here.

I think her name was given earlier in some way, don't quote me on that.

No, it definitely was. When Erin asked her name;

Erin eyerolling on the explanation incoming...

At this rate, it will take five pages, and that's just the burning/melting.

Lying liars. Truly the worst kinda.

But what about lying liars who lie?

You misspelled "of"... I had to read Erin's first line a few times because it made no sense. lol

Looks like we might have a Kratos on our hands. I love it when JRPG plots get twisty and stupid.

I remember FFVII making that same mistake.
Good times.

Were gunny and not sephiroth standing on an ACME trap door or something? They've been completely forgotten about.

No, they are following the video game rule of, "Don't attack while important story points are being told". Come on, pay attention! ;-)

I think that is the second-best threat I have ever heard. I'm going to have to write that down.

Goddamn

PURGE THE FILTHY HERETICS WITH CLEANSING FIRE!

Althea,you just went full Adepta Sororitas. And I have no idea if it's awesome or not.

Angry Fluttershy is Scary Fluttershy O.O

Well, yes. Manners!

I like Erin's reaction in the third panel. "Whoa boy."

Plus it's been in the tags ever since.

From an unwilling and struggling student healer among her race, to a willing (but struggling) healer in the service of the Crystals, to an unchained fire-mage with seemingly limitless power...and yet she still instinctively sides with the Crystals.

I guess it hasn't yet been enough time for Althea's recent epiphany of "never let any authority figure ever dictate to you what your purpose for being is" to sink in.

Which is a shame, because tenbux says she dies in the next strip at the hands of the Crystals, as "you have outlived your usefulness, and know too much".

But what about lying liars who lie?

Psh! That's nowhere near as bad as the lying liars who lie about lying!

Dat radical face in frame one doe.

"Althea... Sorry about all this. Was totally suppose to just be an april fool's joke to get you to think they were killing us. But then Jerry - you know, the elemental crystal of memory, well he forgot to tell us to call it quits with the ruse and I guess things got a little out of hand. Our bad."

Seriously though, I am really enjoying this character. Hop she is the one sucked out of the game after it is done like Gunny previously. Wonder if Erin is gathering representatives from various gaming worlds for some overall reason relating to the tower.
