I figured, eh, yeah, why bother hiding that Vespi was telling the truth about being a Pixie? Nobody's doubting it. So yeah, she really is a pixie, those are her wings. .... Jake said to get her mind off her parents, that'll do it.

Incidentally, since we're coming clean on the pixie thing, should mention Vespi's proportions are tweaked slightly to endorse it. Part of the idea on Vespi is that being a pixie gives her a lot of wasp-like characteristics. These are minor traits, but she has a smaller head than she's supposed to, and her torso gets a lot wider as it goes down, making it look more like a thorax. The large eyes curved into an angle also are vaguely similar to insect eyes.

So yeah, I think interacting with the parents is making Jake realize just how much he's become a mentor to the kids, and even though he's mostly kept a hands-off approach with how they feel about their folks he has to get involved with Valerie given how much that blew up. He still keeps a sort of distance on the subject, though.

Oh, right, Lucy's cameo... While Lucina got a kid in the center, my favorite character from Fire Emblem Awakening is Morgan. And since I have them as siblings in the game, figured it was only appropriate Lucy have a baby brother who was an Expy of him. When putting in characters, made sure to work her in. Love her pose, you can kinda just hear her going "Blablablah" to him. ^^

The Lucy's brother thing has been planned for a good while - we even mentioned that woman being her mom back in Stronger, Faster, Bluer and there was dialogue there mentioning having a baby. So yeah, been something on the docket for a long time to come up when it could.

And yeah, pretty much figured it best to just come right out and show things with Vespi because hey, it was probably pretty obvious she was telling the truth earlier. Which makes you wonder about Jake's history if he just happens to know someone like this, doesn't it?

Little thing I like the touch of here, I like that Jake only refers to Vespi as just that instead of by her full name when she's not around. It's a nice little thing, think goes to show a lot of how distant he can be is something of a conscious effort.

Heheh... Gladja like it. ^^

But checked our notes on that and her power is to see probability in the immediate future. Know Fuhrer King Bradley from FMA? Sort of like that.
