Wow. All kinds of storylines coming together here. The already thick plot thickens further.

And... Mokhadun was in 2014?!??! That long ago? Hard to believe. In fact, I feel like I said that on these forums sometime earlier, and if so, it's been so long since then that Mokhadun-2014 was a shock to me this time too.

Looking at how things went, it seems to me that the fault was entirely on Chilus's side.

I forget, what were the details of the mistake?

Chilus was on for a power-grab. She wanted Zoe, the Stormbreaker, alive and thus went against the order of her boss and caused casualties, among them Qaboos, an important money source for her Boss.

She wanted zoe alive as an attempt to Coup over K'Z'K if such opportunity raised. Chilus has her own agenda and planed to either use Zoe to take down K'Z'K, or present her to him as a gift, to be in his good grace.

Demon politic can be such a mess.

Basically, she went against her boss's order and this is what allowed the gang to win. Then again, her boss is a human who also was the person Wilcot worked for, trying to ramp the different Demon factions against each other to stop K'Z'K

so maybe Chilus still played her part, unknowingly, in the end. She still disobeyed order and cause the death of Qaboos and things definitely didn't go the way her boss had planned them to go.

I'm sure all demons expect to always be overthrown as a part of their day job. Gotta wreak havoc on their anxiety levels.

On another note, yay! Another contender to the ambiguous immortal king crown. And I don't mean Chilus.

Yeah, I took the "one mistake" Chilus referenced to be the killing of Qaboos, especially with Wilcott looking at the picture in the beginning of the strip. Otherwise, things worked out roughly as Wilcott's still unknown boss seems to have wanted.

"odd while" seems like a strange turn of phrase. I'm not clear on its meaning.

I didn't notice that before! I looked it up, but Google couldn't find anything relevant. Then I looked at the Corpus of Contemporary American English, and "odd while" didn't turn up anything there either. It must be a colloquialism or idiomatic saying. Thanks for pointing this out! It's fascinating to me

I think it's simply meant to be that Will's absence, since his last visit to Chilus, has lasted an unusual long time.

Chilus just like to talk sanctimoniously.
