HE IS THE CAUSE OF THE JINGLE!!
Ummm The main reason why I think it’s a dude possibly is look at the neck. Anatomy wise a man’s neck is thicker than a woman’s and Jyaku does seem to be somewhat masculine in appearance to me. Oh well! I guess we’ll see >u>
I’m a female (15 years going to 16 soon) yet I have a man-like thickness to my throat/neck. But technically, ya. A man is supposed to have a thicker neck than women :3
i’m getting the man vibe too – but mostly b/c of the antlers.
Also he has antlers and If I’m not mistaken, he has antlers in deer form, and in only a couple of species of deer do females have antlers. I’m pretty sure this character is male. look at the structure in the vote incentive.
But sometimes looking at it it could be a very muscular female…maybe we’ll see~
Ladies and gentlemen – the invention of Twitter. :O
OMG THAT PERSON WAS RIGHT.
I looove the detail on that guy! but wait this wasn’t the same page you blocked out…hmmmm.I confused xD;
It’s the page before, they’re about a page ahead :D
whoa who’s that guy, and excellent work by the way :)
Cool, now we finally see what that jingling was about. Is he another bounty hunter? I bet hes a from a bird clan, considering he had to understand bird to get Holand’s message
But he also seems to have antlers. :3
I think that’s just his headress.
His head dress is rather deer-esk, maybe we’re looking at a deer-changling clan type person? :)
He’s a deer person – in the character list, it says he’s “Cervian” which I strongly suspect, given the authors’ habit of using names derived from latin [e.g. Piper is a “Vulpian” which comes from the word “Vulpes” and Meela and Feral are “Luipians” which comes from the word “Lupus”] is derived from the word “Cervidae” or “Cervine” which mean “of the deer family”. Plus, he has antlers.
However, it’s worth noting that Holland, as a “Lyrian” breaks this pattern – my guess is the word is based on the word “lyric” which actually derives from ancient Greek song and poetry – I assume their reason is that, you know, birds sing and stuff.
I had to look up the genus for deer however, because I didn’t recognise that one. :)
first reaction: AHHHH! RUN HOLLAND!
Willow the Clever
*A* Maybe he’ll help with Meela’s wolf form? Idk, I’m probably way off.

How do you pronounce Jyaku? Before I get the wrong pronunciation stuck permanently in my head :)
Jee-ya-ku, the Jee is shorter in sound though.
oooooh i though it was ji-a-koo
I feel like I’ve missed something….
same as well/ lol
Yeah, me too
Bowee the Cat

no! stupid mask! WE WANA SEE YOUR FACE MYSTRIOUS JINGLE MAN/WOMAN!!!!!!!!
Ok, anyone else get a Stalker vibe from this guy who some how knows where Holland is?
I WANNAA wear it!!
It looks like you could say that Jyaku got Holland’s tweet. XD
Made my day
I second that.
LOL!!!! Good one. :)
lol, Holland. <3 "YOU GOT MY BURD."
That. Is an awesome outfit. I love the mask and all the details on it. May I ask what animals inspired the design of the mask, or would that give away future plot points? [My guess is bison/deer, but I’m curious.] As much as I am digging the cloak, I want to strip it off so I can see the full splendor of the outfit beneath. Speaking of the cloak, the branch shadows creeping over it add a neat effect.
Superb update! Love the new character already, so much so I want to make fan art of them. <3 Looking forward to the next page!
I’ll be honest I haven’t read the comic yet, but this page has really got me impressed. Superb!
Hmmm, looking at his ear gives me the feeling that he/she is a lupian, too…
My guess–this is a she. Because webcomics are like that. If this person isn`t a woman, then sorry for doubting your manliness, dude. XD
Whoa, it’s the jingle~!
looks kind of like a shaman.
“You got my bird” lol Holland
Oooo awesome-looking jingle man/women!
WAIT A MINUTE!
i think i have seen those legs before! :O
and if Im correct on where i have seen him then… >u> hehehhe
I had the same reaction! Loved the shoes when I first saw them, so I got happy to see them again. XD
Where had you seen the boots?
voting incentive ;)
IF my intuition is correct
Looks like a LITTLE BIRDY told Jyaku where Holland was!
He looks awesome. O 3 O
Looks like Holland wandered into a different webcomic xD
O_= *squints* umm…. pretty sure that’s a guy but could be wrong. He looks like a buffallo tweeter to me.
Da heck!? :V
Oh. Hello, random person with really epic mask.
hm…. friend or foe? friend or foe?
THAT’S what the jingling was! I was wondering if they forgot about it or if it was really something!!!
Ok my first impression was “Ahh… creepy dude.” My second impression was “Oh, cool dude.” But now a closer look at the eyes has me wondering… cool woman?
what jingle WHAT JINGLE? D:
I feel like I really missed something…
Back right before the party, Meela heard a jingle coming from the woods that was never explained, until now.
My guess: A Holland’s vassel. You know, servant of the prince kinda thing?
NEW CHARACTER. How exciting!
Totally! That is, assuming he/she really IS a new character…after all, he/she does wear a mask, and there can only be so many possible reasons for that. XD
Pretty sure it’s going to be a ‘She’. >>
dundundun, indeed :P
this guy looks like he can take good care of Meela. XD but we all know she’s staying with Feral
At first I was like WTF but now I’m loving his mask <3
Amazing page, guys, keep up the incredible work.
Definitely one of my favourite pages so far.
yet another character appearance…sweet
