    Great emotion in the last panel. Jacind looks very… somber, and the mask kinda enhances the effect (after all, he is hiding what’s really on his mind from the villagers).

    Who is narrating the lines in the last panel. Is that future-Jahrd?

      Yeah, it’s future-Jahrd. He’s spoken twice before, usually near or at the ends of chapters, like at the end of the prologue and after the events of Chapter One. Someday we’ll find out who he’s talking to, when we catch up with the “present day”. 🙂

    “It’s time then”.

    Dear, how much revealed… And is about to be revealed. One thing I never noticed before is how long after those incidents Jahrd leave his remarks. And this probably isn’t over yet.

    And of course, great remarkable facial detail. I especially liked how jacind is leading the ceremony, but his eyes and therefore his mind are set at Jahrd and Vendass. Also liked how ‘elder’ is such a honorable title, though they don’t look as old and cranky as human elders, and actually don’t look old at all… It means they don’t live up for too long there in Tars in desert, isn’t it?

      Indeed, we have a long ways to go to catch up with the time when Jahrd is actually telling his tale from. You can only just imagine how much happens in between.

      And definitely, elder means less that they’ve reached a certain age and more that they’re the oldest surviving member of such-and-such old-and-important-clan. Doesn’t mean they’re necessarily going to be gray-haired. In fact, not usually. Life is tough for the really young and the really old in Tarsin.
