A mixed gender prison?
Hey, cut me some slack, I didn't have enough male characters who are canonically jailbirds!
That's just the common area, of course they're bunking in separate wings.

Besides the two centaurs as the newest addition, we have conwoman and credit card fraudster Anna Potemkin aka Anna Eltzberg, and the professional burglar (and rival to the Duval siblings) Strange Quark. (But where is his sister Charm...?)

And we have the shady antique dealer who got one eye eaten by a dodo. (Life just isn't fair: Those who would actually need a cyborg eye don't get one!)
Now he even finally has a name: Kestrel, which is thematically fitting to his Uncle Falcon.

But what does Lena Santorini want from those two...?


Thank you for reading, we'll continue in a week!

Eager to see how you'll handle Charm and all the other girls!

Oh, the weather is perfect for some archery - if I only I had my bow here right now!! :-(
("Here" being the place I'm currently living for work reasons.)
From the last time I actually had the occasion to do some archery (around Easter), I know at least that I didn't somehow un-learn it and that my muscles are still strong enough to pull the bow-string...

Also, a little teaser what's coming next:
It's always a fun exercise to recreate another webcomic's settings... ;-)

Thanks for the advice. Next time I go to prison I'll be sure to yank out one of my eyes and get an eye patch. XD

Well, why do you think so many pirates have an eye patch? ;-D

I'm sure whatever Lena wants in return, it's going to be no good for anyone but her (and, depending on what it is, I could even see it going wrong for her...)

Oh, Lena for sure has BIG plans!

One has to wonder how a fence and an antiques dealer might be useful for her schemes... ;-)

It isn't just pirates[0] with eye patches; the lore I've run across studying maritime history is that it was to keep one eye dark-adapted for activities like going below in daytime (it's *dark* down there) or at night during a gun battle or such.

[0] cue variations on the theme of pie rights or pyrites of Penn's Aunts

It's always interesting to learn where the stereotypical attributes of certain character archetypes (like e.g. pirates, or cowboys, or detectives...) are actually coming from!

It must be pretty intimidating to have a centaur as a cell-mate...

...and it takes up precious space!
