Harry: Go, now.

(The door to the freight train slips open, then shuts behind them with a clunk.)

Sid: No-one saw?
Harry: Nah, we’re fine.

Wolfe: Ah, guten morgen!

(Harry and Sid look round to find the carriage already occupied by two strangers.)

Harry: Uh, sorry. Didn’t know this one was taken.
Wolfe: (smiling over his open book) Not a problem, we are all fellows here in petty crime!
Wolfe: Say hello, Mal!

Mal: (making no effort to sit up) Ugh.
Mal: The wizard stays away from me.
Sid: ..sorry, how did you know I-
Mal: Hardly matters to you, does it?

Harry: This thing going to Widdershins?
Wolfe: Yes, Fraulein, London via Widdershins.
Wolfe: Such a nice place, I hear..

Wolfe: (leans over pointedly to address Mal) I hope to visit there sometime, hmm?
(Mal raises his hand in a two-fingered salute in response.)

Harry: (settling down against a crate) Right, well, wake us up when we’re near.
Harry: Fair warning, we’ve nothing worth stealing that I’m not about to smoke.
Wolfe: (returning his attention to his book) Admirably forward! The waking shall be done.

    • I think that’s more “magician” than wizard, though robes seem less common in this setting even for wizards.

  • If anything, those guys should be more worried about their stuff magically appearing in Sidney’s pockets.

    yeah, the law of conservation of detail states that these people are going to be important later on; also “i hope they don’t show up in a later story line” is just begging for more detail to be shoved into them. like, straw, and a scarecrow.

      Heh…  Nothing like another “Checkov’s Gun”, eh?

      Haha, he’s not as bad as Zathras! His English is a little clunky but not terrible by any means.

    Speaking as an American, I’m assuming the gesture Mal makes in the second to last panel is comparable to giving someone the middle finger?

    • Anonymous

      It’s a little less harsh, but yeah.

      Heh…  Just make sure you don’t do it in the UK or Australia…  As Kate indicates, it’s slightly less harsh/offensive, but…  >:-D

     Why do they remind me of Liam and Vargo from Darken?

      Could be the vague squabbling! They actually get on much better than those two ever did..

    Oh hey, it’s these guys! Somehow, I’d managed to forget that they had an appearance in this chapter!
    … and it’s only been 5 years. My brain must be failing with age.
