Oh no. I had such high hopes for her, but that is not instilling a lot of confidence in me.
I’m – I’m worried. Like Andy here.
They’re distracting it while Tane can ready the killing blow. Good plan.
I like her a lot, and I’m excited for her continued role in this comic, but…
…I just really want that demon to punch her right now.
You’ll have to wait til next year!
Heh heh heh I can just hear Lee and Ed saying those things outloud to each other.
Hmm, I can see some value in defeating a demon intelligently, brute force isn’t always the best plan, but pledging stuff is a serious risk.
I… huh. Well there goes her mystique I guess.
I suppose it’s the difference between Tane and Soma.
Soma’s sorta got the mystic shaman approach-spirits are things to reason with and negotiate, and a spirit gaurdian is a companion to be treasured.
Tane’s wisdom is to dominate the guardian spirit and use it as a tool to destroy harmful ones.
Compassion and Diplomacy, versus Strength and Domination.
Ignoring the obvious male vs. female sterotype that comes to mind here, I suspect their powers mimic this:
Soma’s wolf could beat Tane’s Horse in a fight, and Soma might have a limited ability to control demons.
Tane, on the other hand, has more personal power without the aid of his spirit companion, and also is better at combatting demons.
Soma might be able to detect that Thom is possessed even when his ‘demon’ isn’t flaring, but I’d bet Tane’d be able to take him in a fight when it is…
I say all this to say there’s probably a give and take-these could be the two extremes to how to be a guardian, with the others in the middle, OR each guardian family has it’s own style, meaning each guardian we see will have a different approach to the spirit companion, and to the roving demons that attack their villages.
Wow. Really observant analysis. You’ll just have to wait and see.
I’m a little disappointing no one looked at panel one and said, “Demon’s gonna hate.”
But only a little.
