So enough month long conversations, lets move on! I think I spent to much time redrawing the last panel, there was a quick moment where my eyes crossed and gave me a really bad headache. Extra image Loth is a booth babe, or something.
Also new Wallpaper, preview at Tumblr

You have her...what? Hmmmm? Could it be the stuff you STOLE? If you tell her now she *might* only maim you, if she finds out on her own later, you are dead.

for reference: See Chapt 4 Page 4, where we find that Ral is a jerk.

Pfft, of course he's a jerk. He's an elf! It's hard-coded in their DNA. It's practically a racial trait; +1 CHR, +1 INT, -1 STR, -1 CON, annoying, animal affinity, bishonen hair, total douchebag.

Assuming our Elvin bastard mage friend is not, in fact, a douche, as we assume, I wonder why he witheld the rose.... does it have evil magic to make it glow?

I hope we find out soon, we've been waiting 4+ years for the answer to that bleeping question!!

I think I remember it being mentioned somewhere that the rose was from her mother, so probably not evil magic, maybe just magic to keep it preserved? Also some of the other stuff including the toy was hers also, so he just grabbed all the stuff that was confiscated from her when she was arrested, and only gave back her sword. It seems like it was all sentimental keepsakes, rather than practical items, so why keep them from her?

Because he's a douche-elf? Thought that was already established

I was looking for something a bit more specific than just general douchelfiness. Even douchelves have specific motivations for particular actions.

We all assume he is a douche, and I get that. But like Ed8 said, everyone has a motivation.

I know that Loth has been manipulated by Saphael from the beginning, or was it someone posing as Lord Saphael.... Anyways, maybe all that she thinks is good, her armor, the rose, the ring of power she has/had... all of those have an evil aura to them set forth by people who want to manipulate her and overthrow the king using Loth.

If this speculation is true (based on the fact of the events since -Loth's rekindling with her sister, Loth's acceptance and warmth to another race than her own, etc) And the fact that our Elven friend is a mage, it could be that he sensed and suggestive magic that was placed on the objects.

For the rose, it could have been placed later on, or as it was enchanted.

If this is true, all her things are all trying to keep her under a corrupt control, which would only work if she wore them. Probably the only thing that wasn't enchanted was the sword.

Given all these facts, Our Elf is no longer a douche, but a really nice guy looking out for a friend.
