      One of the two:
      1) He was strangled hard enough to tear some fur at the critical places
      2) It’s one of Calterra’s remedies to help Jahrd neck.

      BTW, I really like the way Kirie is sneaking away in the background of the first panels.

      First, from my understanding and the research that I attempted on the matter, under thin fur (like on a critter’s neck), especially if the fur’s white, severe bruising is possible to see. This clearly? Nah, not even close, unfortunately. But I really wanted to show something so that I could effectively convey that Jahrd has a very, very sore neck, so when I saw that it’s possible at all, I went with it. Decided exaggeration was better than understatement in order to get the message across, and sometimes it is.

      The he-lost-some-fur theory works a bit to that end, I suppose, although I wasn’t thinking it. I do kind of like it, though.

      But really, and trust me, he just looked even more ridiculous sitting there being babied with nary a scratch to show for it.

    Really? Interesting, because I was thinking I’d like to see Kirie hug the forlorn Jahrd and not be all motherly like about it. It’s just the romantic in me I guess.

      XD Ha ha, also d’aww …. And I’m sure she’d be happy to hear that there are still people out there who can see her in a positive light.
