Page 24 Book 5: Malevolent Machinations
Anything with Lockheed always seems to be questionable news…
Maybe it’s the complete lack of regard for those in their care and/or captivity.
Anyways, flashback #2 here of quite a few in the Book, leading up to the final epic arc. You’ll notice this one takes place some 12 years before the last one, but these may not follow a full reversing-through-time pattern, they’ll probably jump about a bit.
Those who know the setting a better will have a reasonable idea of what Lorna’s discovered in that scroll, but as a hint to those who don’t: Vecna was an archmage specialising in death and the undead who became a Lich (a kind of undead spellcaster) and ascended to godhood. Lorna it could be argued is a more modern (Vecna was first written of in Dungeons & Dragons in 1971-76) or Arcanian take on him in many ways.
And yes she has her creepy mouth again here, this is purely a stylistic choice for her and not something sticking around I assure you
