He is still maintaining a civil track. If he is indeed speaking the truth here, this bobby will need to watch his back. Maybe Diane will provide enough distraction for him to complete his investigation without interference.

Any time you disney death a character (falling off cliff, imprisoned for eternity, reportedly killed offscreen) you're giving an opening for bringing them back. Sorta a quantum super positionitional state of being alive or dead until observed. That being said i dont think this is that character. I'm going to put 5 internets down that he is just politely introducing himself before breaking her arm again and hauling her off to space jail. Ah but maybe not.. we'll see. Dont equate smith and holder with good guys just because antigone stone got to be a hero for nicole. If murphies previous owners hadnt been idiots stone would have been after nicole and buford for murder. And stone had almost certainly dragged escaped androids that hadnt made it to L5 back to their owners at some point in her career. QV universe has some pretty evil laws and S&H is in the business of enforcing those laws. At best you can say they probably stop intergalactic wars from breaking out at worst they are bobba fetts working for vader. Edit: what if instead of antigone this guy is actually Hayami?! Dun dun dun!


How did the comic leave that open?

While she may have had a "back up", I don't remember it being mentioned.

He may be Smith & Holder's internal affairs and investigating violations within the company.  Alyss may know him as someone else, if he's who I think he is, from when she was Nicole and he was a female agent of S&H.

That would be awesome, I also suspected that she wasn't really dead, the comic seemed to specifically leave that possibility open. If its true its the only thing that might make me start to trust S&H again. So far they've been pretty much the private version of the Luna Government from the old comic.

In Antigone Stone's day, Smith & Holder was much less like a police force and more like the Jedi Knights operating as an insurance agency. Unless contracted to do so with slave owners (which they didn't do as a matter of policy, as they were based in L-5 after all) they weren't in the business of returning escaped slaves. Neither were they in the business of liberating them.

But now it's 500 years later and shit happens.

Good point.

I don't recall a time when Scott has deliberately misinformed in the (non-cannon) transcript, thought he has done some recon.

>DeClayre and Diana are seated at the table. Otto approaches. Otto looks like a 14-year-old boy, which he in fact is. Blond and just a bit rounded.

Only the completed strips are cannon.

The 'transcript' is actually the original script, because that's easier for me to cut-and-paste. Sometimes changes get made in the process of creating the artwork. In this case, the colorist gave Otto blue hair. I could have asked him to change it but decided it worked better for me. It also suggested a kinship between Lorelei and Otto which I hadn't thought of originally but is proving useful as the plot develops.

Well, the good news is, he is being polite. Being polite before critically injuring someone is rather rare.

And Senior Field Agent René Belbenoit shows up.

Perhaps we'll learn Wednesday if he's friend or foe.  ;)
