Annotated Raven's Children - Issue #1: Page 14

[<-- Previous page] | [Next page -->]

I have a vague recollection of relettering this entire page -- actually, glancing at the next couple of pages, I'm fairly sure this whole section was relettered after the initial art was drawn.

Jained is kind of a creepy racist: second verse, same as the first ... He is actually supposed to be. Still, I had forgotten how dark a character Jained was until rereading this. Since it's basically a crapsack world, though, (TVTropes link, sorry), Jained's amorality is more or less drowned out by the background level of amorality around him. He's gone straight beyond cynical into "hates everyone" territory, but unlike a lot of the people around him, he's not particularly violent (actually, you might notice as the series goes on that not being violent is one of Jained's defining traits -- he's completely on board with theoretical violence, but backs off from dealing it).
