Hey, umm... Wouldn't it be just bonkers if Yffi turned out to be Steve?

I think Yffi is actually Shirt-Guy Tom.

Oh, you know which Steve.

Oooohhhhh! THAT Steve!
(better known as... you know!)

And to think that BunBun calls Torg 'nerd boy'... what would he call Steve?

(Just maybe BunBun would call him 'Steve', in a sign of respect for his capability to accidentally destruct all he touches?)

I think I'm going to stick with my original spec:

Wizard Yffi = Allie

Although Yffi has been established as male, I would imagine that Allie could disguise herself as male easily enough. Allie had the connections to Bast and Dunuloa. Allie apparently intended to be immortal - so maybe she found a way to do so, and is now intending to build herself an army of sorts. Nothing could go wrong there.........

I am trying to imagine who else Yffi could be at this time period. Allie is the only one I can think of who would have the relevant intent. If I'm correct the question is, does she survive the scribe? Is the flying creature Anise, then, rather than Ozzid? I guess that could be a spec on its own, independent of who Yffi is...

Well, given that I expected Allie to show up again as spme sort of undead creature, I'm definitely not down on the idea that it could be Allie. My alternative spec though, consistent with my previous spec of Yffi being from Mohkadun and the fact that the lich seems to be lacking eyes in its eyeholes (could be from normal decay, but nevertheless), is that Yffi is Symachus.

Symachus would fit, but "this Queen Siphaniana" would seem to rule him out.

I think this is a (technically) brand new character. Now the question seems to be just how long-lived Yffi is and when/if he'll show up in the present.

Would've been neat if he was Dr. Steve, though. Lots of characters in this universe seem obsessed with creating new forms of life.

yffi being Symachus, working on an attemptto redempt himself would explain his poor physycal state and lack of eyes:

https://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?ch ... 2014-05-09

I don't think his way he address Queen Siphaniana rules that out, especially as I expect it to be a Typo and PEte meant to say "HIS Queen Siphaniana", something Symachus would have no reason to not say.

Wow, Anise in the last couple pages has been looking a LOT like the little shadowy guy following the gang around in the present, ie: https://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?ch ... 2021-08-31

I forget if we were thinking demon spy or a servant of Basphomy for that fella, but now we've got an ancient door to add as an option


I am pretty sure the shadowy flying figure is Ozzid. Matches the shape, especially if you go back to the comic where he flew away from Siphy once she got eaten by the book (to later become a Mummy). I am wondering if Gwynn is considered part of the bloodline as she may be a reincarnation of Siphania/that line. Or if Ozzid is coming for some other reason.
It COULD be one of the three Yffi dragons, but they were last left in his cave, guarding the way. Not sure how they would get out, or if they could.

my initial thought was symachus as well. most of the pieces fit somewhat but what throws me off is that symachus was last seen trying to summon k'z'k. not oppossing him as we see in today's strip.

The Lich has a blindfold across his eyes. I won't say, because spec, but I think that's the final clue to tell us exactly who Yffi is.

Yffi is Riff's ancestor?

Symachus might have got many years to ponder on his actions.

The spec relies on the possibility that Symachus was capable of growth over the past few millennia. Given that the last attempt, if successful, would have been Symachus' third time freeing K'Z'K, that is admittedly the biggest stretch of the spec.

Let's not forget that it was shortly after his banishment. Not much time to learn had elapsed yet.

Yet the most second-most-recent of the Symachus-line is still trying to summon K'Z'K....
