I promised I wouldn’t miss any more updates of this comic until it’s done, and I meant it. 😉

Character motivation is very important to a story. More than once I’ve found a well-developed character steering a story of mine in a direction I never intended. Zeus, here, is caught in the original plan I had for the Vourasq War nine years ago. He’s trying to play out a Japanese sci-fi anime in which, despite great loss and devastation, the two sides in a great clash of civilizations find they have hope of resolving their differences and finding peace after all.

Althea, on the other hand, seems to be playing out a very different movie indeed.
