453 The boy with the hat is named Charles. In an early version of The Reborn, he was a pretty important character. Actually, the boy in the upper left also appeared in in that early version, but he served the same purpose as the boy from page 370.

So despite somewhat betraying Elijah, Doug and him still work together, huh?

They seem to have forgotten somewhat about Angela, though... Or maybe they're scheming?

Good foreshadowing there in panel three. I guess blood feuds out weight mind control attempts as far as Retsini duties go. Get out while you can Doug you are only half! Well get out after you finish you coffee.

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: I don't think its so much they forgot about her but right now they have the chance to take out a larger number of potential threats before they awaken where as Angela's powers are already awakening and she has a guardian protecting her. She can wait till they thin out the potential herd so to speak.

sfg @Specter and Shadow-Actually, I think Elijah may have a finger in the zombie plot. That's all I'm saying.

And it looks like the odds rolled in your favor Specter!

@ffx2player: I've thought of that... and in any case, SOMEONE is tricking Trent (I think that was his name...) into believing his brother is still alive, which would probably take fairly strong magic on it own.

@ffx2player: I figured it was a pretty safe bet as there was a lot of foreshadowing with Helena from before but I can't for the life of me cite any sources at the moment. I've also notice assuming correctly that is a picture of Helena she wears yellow a lot.

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Its possible he might but at the same time somethings don't add up. Trent's methods while a bit extreme don't seem to suggest foul play. If Elijah or any other Retsini was playing a part in this why give Trent a week slow killing poison? Why not a fast acting one that leaves little to no time for cure. Just lie to Trent to get him to use it.

Also Trent's mother and her reactions to how he acts. She knows he is doing something and she doesn't freak about the zombies. That suggest she has been around them a lot. And I forgot who said it but we never saw more then half of Kevin's face before. For all we know Trent could have just brought Kevin back to life himself and he is doing this to Angela because Kevin really does like her and Trent is just trying to grant his brother a last request so he can rest in peace. Time will tell on this one but I really have a strong gut feeling Trent might the lead necromancer pulling all the zombie strings just to be a good younger brother. We'll see.

sfg Actually, there is a way it works, but it's complicated, and I don't want to say too much...

Also, Kevin-living youngest
Trent-dead oldest

Like how here in Georgia, there was a baby boom in Oct. 2011, nine months after the Snowpocalypse of Jan. 2011.

@Lockman: Well, I assuming lots of people got snowed in and stuck in their homes... there isn't THAT much to do when you're stuck at home, and if you're out of condoms and snowed in, you can't simply pop out and get more. *Wiggles eyebrows*

So it is. I've made a small naming error then. But you know what I meant. Kevin is trying to be the good younger brother. I don't know how I messed that one up.

replies @ChainleeZ: You mean human Twilight Sparkle?

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Well, Doug doesn't really have anywhere else to go...

@SpecterHSC: No, take the coffee with you!

@ffx2player: Perhaps

@Lockman: Well, not exactly ^^;
There wasn't a sudden population boom, just a sudden increase in the number of Reborn.

@Shadow: There's truth in that. I apparently was conceived during a blizzard >_>;

...And I only just noticed.

Helen is a Reborn. D: Maybe THAT'S why Megan isn't too fond of her.
