We are finally at the end of this series of flashbacks. Mike and I had made the decision to show this montage sequence showing Lukina’s past intermingled with this short conversation with Malik Voss instead of by itself to help establish the setting a little bit more. This script is very different from its original roleplay narrative because several things happened – we moved websites and then radically changed Malik’s backstory. 

Sintija and Voss had a much different story but I am enjoying the novel that we are working on. The novel establishes the world and culture of Jord which is more on the fantasy side of things but will also show the beginning of their relationship. 

Nicoy did a wonderful job with this page and with all of Malik’s facial expressions. You can see the “OMG, ENOUGH. DAMN ELVES AND YOUR SPEECHES!” look on his face in panel 2.
