Big coloured statues or people behind them.

gasp! Assistant's inner dark self and why magic/her hat was kept away from her? *w*

Wait, if that's Assistant, does that mean she 'kills' people to get their powers, or is it just some random person?

@The_mad_one: Colored statues. People have linework/lineart in them.

@Christonyx: Well here's one example of a giant in the background with no line art: http://gloomverse.smackjeeves.com/comics/1883077/an-act-of-desperation-page-9/

It could be that they're giant people but they have no lines so that they don't immediately stand out in this pictures which already introduces two seemingly important people in one shot.

Past life, I'm guessing? The evil looking Assistant could be the one that kept the powers from her reincarnation? Kept Assistant's hat from her, because whomever had it knew she would see the past and wanted her to be ready for it?

Depending on whether we're talking about paint or light, 'black' could be seen as either the mixture of all colours or the absolute lack of them.

My Mind:

WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK IS THAT MONSTROSITY???????????

You know, unless it really is Assistant, it could also be another person with black hair and dark skin.

The presumptions feel a bit racist, no?

Baconeko (Guest), May 28th, 2014, 12:28 am     Reply

I feel like it's probably some embodiment of her magic and/or the entity she was talking to earlier. It likely resembles her.

The_mad_one, May 29th, 2014, 7:13 am     Reply

@StupidLaugh: So far, Assistant, her parents, seaweed, and the president are the only toned people that are meaningful in the comic. Seaweed's tone is darker, President's tone is lighter.

That makes this a 50/50 split between Assistant or a new character, so it's not weird to think it may be Assistant or some spiritual incarnation of her.

Also, there's the practical issues of having two female chracters with the same hair, skin tone, clothing preferences and physique in one comic.

Lady in Motley, May 30th, 2014, 9:12 pm     Reply

I think we're spot-on with the "some spiritual incarnation" thing. I draw evidence not just from the hair and skin, but the incredibly obvious coloring parallels to Assistant, shown on the left of the same frame.
I further conjecture, based on the fact that the other (dead?) people in the room are scribbles of color that the person in question is 'shadowy' not because they are 'evil' but because of their primary color(black/grey) being shown as an expression of their magic.
OR we just walked in on a mass murder scene one of her potential timelines committed. I personally like the "magic origin" more than "warning from the future".

I kinda get the impression Asistant was chosen for this magic by magic (if you've read magic thief, you know what I mean), to use past magician's powers for either greatness, or evil.

Stop being racist, that doesn't even look like the assistant! >:C

@Charlotte057: You're probably trolling but just in case you're sincere:

Even assuming this comes from the problem where people have trouble telling people apart from a different skin tone, that's a facial recognition disability. Not a conscious act of racism. You're making a big deal out of this, only because she's not caucasian. You're being racist here.

You don't need to bother to reply. I'll assume you're a troll and won't respond.

Also I'm commenting too much on this comic lately and will tone it down for the coming time.

@The_mad_one: Thats perfectly fine, to be honest from my standpoint, I've found it very odd and enlightening to see how people respond to me having a dark-skinned main lead compared to my white main leads in older comics. I've never heard the word racism uttered on any of my comics until this one. Although its never been directed at me or my writing style, its been very weird to see this jump of logic towards racism towards other readers, who by all accounts haven't said anything racist.

Now, I'm not saying yes or no on anyone's theories, but its not really a stretch (and DEFINITELY not racism) to see a character with possibly similar physical features to another, and assume they're the same character. (especially if said character is shrouded in mystery, thus leaving it up to the fans at this point to try and distinguish who the mystery character might be.)

To call it racism is definitely jumping the shark, and makes it pretty clear people are unaware what real racism is. One thing for sure, this is not it.

YES THANK YOU SOMEONE ELSE SAW IT! I HAD A MINI FREAK OUT LAST NIGHT UPON NOTICING IT AND SOMEONE ELSE SAW IT! YAY!

(i just recently read the comic due to all the people mentioning it on tumblr and this makes me really happy)

THAT'S THE DARK OVERLORD

Rush721, April 17th, 2017, 9:12 pm     Reply

@Liv: I was rereading the comic and got to these two pages:
http://gloomverse.smackjeeves.com/comics/1605626/clouds-and-cathedrals-page-6/
http://gloomverse.smackjeeves.com/comics/1606082/clouds-and-cathedrals-page-7/
Then came over to this scene to see if anyone else noticed it. So I get the feeling whoever the person is all dark and scary looking most likely? have destroyed the ruin/ a society that was there before. Guess we will have to see what happens

Can I quickly say: Isn't this the area that Nim was in in that intermission comic?! With the destroyed statues inside that measures with astrology or something, and Nim showed Cirrus inside and all that stuff? And is that person the Dark Overlord? And why does that magic affecting the people of the floor look like what Wallis did in the Vanishing Act? THERE'S SO MANY QUESTIONS!

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT.
ALL THESE PEOPLE.
THEY HAVE A CERTAIN COLOUR OF THE RAINBOW, LIKE THE OTHER RAINBOW PEOPLE. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HOLY CRAP. Shoot what if it's like some sort of ritual for power and stuff? What if all the colour people DIE.???
