The dreaded meeting of the parents! I really enjoy writing and drawing Lex, he's such a goofball.

Okay, gonna get a little bit into the lore of Xenobiosis and talk about Catalysts (they are mentioned in the glossary I made to accompany the comic but I'll go over it again real quick right here).

Catalysts are humans that are born with the ability to use magic, unlike Magin (like Charon) that learn magic on their own and require the use of sigils and incantations. Basically, Catalysts are like Izumi Curtis and Ed Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist in that they don't need to use alchemy circles like most other alchemists in the series. The two easiest ways to identify a Catalyst are their unnatural skin color, which indicates what class/element of magic they can use and will eventually fade to a normal skin color over an extended period of not using magic, and their short pointed ears.

I'll explain the magic classes/elements another time, it's kind of a lot of info and I don't want to bore anyone yet.

So if anyone was wondering exactly why Asher is purple, that's why! And Etzy is the same as Asher only she has a different magical classification and her skin has faded from a brighter orange to a more natural skin tone looking orange, so her only indication of ever having magic are her ears.

I was worried about the "background noise" being too in-your-face and indistinguishable from the sound effects, but I think making Antlia's and Petra's screaming a little transparent helps to separate them from the foreground noise/sound effects.

That stare and the expression change to the next panel... XD

The background noise being a little transparent does help distinguish things. Ive done something like this myself when the situation called for it. :)

Haha, there is so much chaos going on at this little party, but I love how Canan is just super chill and slurping his drink :)

Canan just thinks it's best to not get involved in any of the chaos happening in the background.

I meant to say on the 9th but happy belated birthday.
Also, you said the catalysts skin fades after long periods of not using magic. Then you said that the only way you could tell Etzy ever had magic was her ears. So does their ability to use magic go away or get weaker if they don't use it for long enough? You could go on about the world and the lore for weeks before I got bored.

Thanks so much!

You're exactly right. The longer they go without using magic, they have less use of magic until either it fades away completely and they become ordinary, magic-less humans or they start using it again more frequently and go back to their original power levels.

Did anyone else think "Phoenix Wright" when they saw Lex's hairstyle? I don't even play the games and that's what I thought.

DUUDDEEEE. IS THAT GUY USING AUTOMALE?!

Yes and no: it's a cybernetic prosthetic that was heavily influenced by automail, but is not actually automail.

Good eye though! Fullmetal Alchemist was one of the heavier influences for this comic!
