And we see Helen's mom, Leda, in full color! I'd drawn - or at least sketched out - this page before I drew the mini comic with her mom so I knew what she looked like when I did the mini comic. I fretted a lot over whether she looked enough like a mother but was reassured that her face looked old enough and the hairstyle was very mom-like.

Helen tried to explain what's going on but obviously Leda is having none of that. And we see that Helen's had problems with her short temper before, so her unreasonable outburst in chapter 1 wasn't an isolated incident.

I was really excited to show Leda "speaking" her native language because I really like how the characters all look (though they're all really tiny here so you can't see them all that well). I really want to show more characters speaking in their native languages, I think it adds to the world the comic takes place in and helps show its diversity and how fleshed out I've made it (and how much time I've wasted making up fake written languages).

I... don't remember if there's a reason Helen says "mum" instead of "mom". I don't picture her speaking with any particular accent or anything. Maybe there was a reason, maybe there wasn't. Who knows.

Fun fact: Helen has two younger brothers that you can see watching her get yelled at by their mom from inside their house.

I see where Helen gets her anger from. :3

Leda has learned to channel it into her 'Mom mode'.

The secret to managing your anger: become a mom and realize you can't lash out at everyone over everything because you have to be "the grown up" and "set a good example".

I knew I must have been doing something wrong... I became a dad!
That must be the reason I have not been so successful at anger management.

Well, I'm sure how your parents taught you to act around and towards others has something to do with it too. It's not entirely your fault lol

She probably kinda might know what she's doing sometimes.

I'm not entirely sure I want to know what's being said in whatever alien language. It probably involves a few choice words.

Honestly I don't remember. I was going to post the translation but kinda forgot and then rasterized the text so yeah :P

But you're probably right, I know she said something along the lines of "Wait until your father hears about this!"

My attempts to decode it suggest it might be, "you are in so much trouble" and "just wait until your father gets home."

Hehe. Wow. Does she not realize that her daughter was about to commit homicide? :P

She was waiting to see if Helen would be able to come to a sensible, grown up conclusion but.... obviously that didn't happen.

So they're all kids (relatively) now huh? And no huge cross-city fight? Chalk one up for pacifism I guess.

Yes, all children. Mostly. Canan and Asher are technically 'young adults' but I consider them kids.

Sooooo ... she perceives time 100x slower and she STILL have short fuse? Or was that only Lilith's case? How many species makes the 11 people on the cast page? Three? Six? Eleven?

I don't see how a short fuse and one someone perceives time are related. Anyone can have a short temper.

And there are 11 main characters on the cast page but not everyone up there right now are from all the different species on the planet. I think I've got 8 different species of humanoids (not counting humans themselves), but I don't have a plot-crucial character from each species yet.
