Another secret out of the bag, a few more on the way.

It was speculated by a few people when Spire and his crew first appeared that the acolyte was Kilzu, and indeed it was accurate (though most overlooked how Kilzu, a tiny imp, would be the human-sized individual with curved horns). Of course, it’s a bigger secret that Kilzu, though most devils are strictly-speaking androgynous, is actually female.

Speaking of horns though, Kilzu’s have always been a thorn in my side when drawing her, because there’s been the common confusion over whether they actually are horns or whether they’re a second pair of strangely-shaped ears. I redrew them from scratch for this reappearance and I’m genuinely happy with how they came out. They’re a lot more obviously segmented now, like the horns of certain rams, which has been the intended association since Kilzu was first introduced.

And speaking to Lying for a moment, it’s a rather effective strategy to get information from someone by walking into the room a relative unknown and proclaiming that you already know everything you want to know. Of course, it works best if you’re actually able to play such a role convincingly, because the natural response of every creature once it thinks the proverbial game is over is to lay all their cards on the table. A gamble, certainly, but Lying has the advantage that demons predate and have no association with mortals in their origins, and so are generally a lot less competent at understanding the nuances of their overtures.

    In one of the FFF:R comics, Levistus refers to Kilzu as a HE.

  2. I have seen the Rebooting and I do not think it is totally canon! So it is an alternate universe! :D

  3. Except Levistus in that reality remembers how the universe was BEFORE the Reboot. So what he thought WOULD be canon.

    Probably. Maybe. Sorta. Kinda.

    …shut up…
