Now I’m really curious to see who this guy is.
I’m sure he becomes evil and than the mortal enemy of everybody in the land or feral kills him before he can go berserk on people…
Who’s to say Mal isn’t Feral?
I think too that Mal is Feral…
I’m pretty sure that Mal is Feral. :c
Mal can’t be feral cause the symbol is on ferals other hand!
nah yuen has got to be feral, or linked to him at least. mal’s hair and eyes (in so much as we can assume that feral’s natural eye colour is green) are too light. it’s clearer in the vote incentive. yuen and feral even wear similar colours and styles of clothes.
This is only possible under the assumption that Feral can’t remember his past…otherwise he would’ve recognized the name Yuen when Meela brought it up and…well, not SAID something, persay, but given some sign of knowing what she was talking about
Maybe he’s the lupin from the very start.
You know… the one that killed her family in the dream…?
mal cant be feral, yuen looks more like feral first of all, 2nd the mark is on the wrong hand. when feral used his mark to save meela from versal (forget his name most the time) it was on his right hand not his left
SPOILER ALERT!!!!!! REPEAT DO NO READ UNLESS YOU WANT THE ENTIRE SERIES TO BE SPOILED FOR YOU!!!! Yuen is Feral. Proof is seen in one of the early pages.
I think Mal is the one that killed Meela’s father and brother…
OMG creepy thought! But it could be …
Thats what I exactly thought too! XD
OMG DUDE YOUR PROBABLY RIGHT IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
Mal is Meela’s father. look at the resemblance. the mark probably turned his hair white.
Again, I really don’t see a resemblance here. (I admit I was off about the mole, in my defense it was a rough sketch I was working with.) His face looks very different to me, in particular his profile is a lot more pronounced than Mal’s (see this page and 249) and the eyebrows do not match.
Not to mention, his two sons inherited his grey hair and he is not the first lupian we’ve seen with it–it’s very likely natural. Also the fact that Feral later has the same mark and his hair is still black, so there’s no indication that would happen…
Personality-wise—Mal seems to be moving very quickly towards “overexcited evil best friend,” while Rollin is a casual reprobate.
It’s kind of weird for me that someone think that Mal (or Yuen) is Meela’s father. And it’s not about lack of resemblence. According to character list Feral is 16 years older than Mella, which means Mal is approximately 17 years older. And Mella also has two older brother, who is at least 5 yeasr older than her. It’s not like you can be father, when you’re 12.
Well, maybe somehow you can, but that’s totally not that case XD
That can’t be it, she would definitely remember her father’s name, especially if it came up in a dream. And Mal is too unpredictable to take care of two pups when he’s older–he’ll be up to nothing but trouble
Mal has the sign on HIS left hand, while we see at this page, Feral has the sign on his right. Feral is
I think they did a hand shake…. XD
No, wait, a hand shake is impossible, silly meXD
They could always high-five
I remember a few chapters ago, was it Feral who had that mark on his hand?
Ok Mel you are keeping me out now that face in the last panel… :\
overly attached cursed male friend who follows you all around your reincarnations with your lady friend.
OMG, I’m still torn if Mal is Feral or Yuen is Feral. //AndhowMeelaisinvolved inallofthis?!
It’s Feral. Even the authors confirmed it. Mal has brown hair. Yuen has black.
I mean Yuen is Feral.
Soiled it!! :c
But that doesn’t make much sense.. I mean, the mark on Mal’s hand looks exactly like Feral’s(As far as I remember). :I
But they’re on different hands, Ferals was on his right, Mals is on his left. so why wouldn’t it make much sense?
I do believe that Mal is Meela’s dad…but I don’t know for sure. and, like Dotcom said, Yuen is Feral, I do believe.
Well, back a few chapters they had the page introducing Meela’s parents. Remember Rollin? He’s Meela’s dad, not Mal.
Maybe Rollin is the traveler Mal is talking to…? Just a random thought.
If yuen is feral then mal just can’t be meela’s dad. Meela’s dad should be a lot older then feral. I mean feral’s at least in his twenties and meela’s dad should be in his mid thirties.
If yuen is feral then mal just can’t be meela’s dad. Meela’s dad should be a lot older then feral. I mean feral’s at least in his twenties and meela’s dad should be in his mid thirties. So that can’t work
(hope i’m not double posting. My phone’s acting up ^^”)
Feral has the sign on his right hand…
Oh… my… GOOOOOSH!
But that’s Mal’s left hand. o3o
Oh wow, I didn’t catch that! Nice job!
I think it’s pretty plain that Yuen is Feral. She has these dreams about Yuen, not specifically Mal, and ALWAYS when she’s close to Feral. Mal isn’t around for a lot of Yuen’s memories, so there would be no reason for Yuen’s memories to be attached to Feral if he were actually Mal. He’d have no way of carrying those memories. (Particularly with his mother’s death).
One of her dreams *revealed* who it was. And the authors confirmed it. If anyone looks at the voting incentives, there was one with these 3 characters above in color—and aside from looks—Yuen is definitely Feral. He has his natural eye colors and black hair. Mal is brown-haired. I can see how easy it is for people to get confused, though, as Feral looks so rough now—much more like Mal.
I think Mal is Feral, but that’s just my opinion.
RADICAL THEORY TIME!
Feral is both a combination of Mal and Yuen, from some freaky magical accident, and and the accident caused him to have amnesia which is why he doesn’t remember. :O
A friend of mine and I actually discussed that as a possibility. owo This story just keeps getting more and more interesting~
Agreed, and I’d been thinking it for a while too. We shall just have to wait and see.
Interesting. I could maybe buy that—or even that Feral carries a piece of Mal in him—or even his soul. That would explain a lot of things.
He always did have a creepy attachment to demons, that mal.
And then Feral has the sign on his opposite hand so…
Oh…that’s the magic symbol on 193….oh my. How did Feral end up with it, since he’s confirmed to be Yuen? Here’s hoping we find out in this dream, although I doubt it with how much older Injured!Teenage Feral looks.
Mal’s face looks really creepy in all these panels, like he’s already crazy or something (I’m sure he’s just excited, but…) XD glad to see that I’m not the only one who thinks so, Vihki!
Oh… it’s not Feral, Feral has it on the other hand
Mal is gonna go crazy with his power and he won’t be able to control. He will start attacking and killing people (possibly vihki) and destroying towns and such like that. Because he is so out of control feral cant stop him so he goes to the mystery man to get the same powers inorder to stop mal (maybe even killing him for his own good) and during their battle that is how feral gets all of his scars and looses his voice.
BAMMMM!!!! I can predict the future! This totaly gonna happen.
I think Mal is going to kill some demons.
Oh man, all the facial expressions on this page are great! Mal is looking crazy. My theory still stands, that Mal goes insane, destroys the village, kills everybody, maybe including Vihki, and Yuen goes to stop him, is injured and somehow Mal transfers whatever it is he’s got going on to Yuen.
However, if Vihki is still alive, I think she will be showing up again soon. She will remember Yuen/Feral, but he won’t remember her. AWKWARD! And Meela will get jealous…
I’ve been following this for a while (I believe this is my 1st comment), but I finally had to to mention something.
Everyone thinks Mal is gonna kil Vihki and Yuen/Feral is gonna go to the stranger, or that Mal is Meela’s dad. 1) Mal can’t be her dad because her dad has WHITE fur/hair. 2) Anyone ever think that maybe Yuen and Mal go off and get into a fight and maybe Mal or maybe even the stranger (possibly the person who may end up being Meela’s mom or dad) and things get heated and the symbol gets FORCED onto Yuen that way? And in the process he gets severely hurt and loses his memory and voice? So then when Holland finds him he just DECIDES to call him Feral?
Just a long, crazy, random theory of mine. I read a lot lol.
Still looks like the eye of Sauron to me
….. O.O ………….uhhhhh……… That’s creepy…………
I think at this point my biggest question is not how Yuen becomes Feral, but who the stranger is. I have a hunch that knowing who the stranger is would explain quite a bit, or at least open doors for more plausible theories. (Not that any of your current theories aren’t plausible, but it would be nice to have more evidence to base them on.) Somehow I don’t think that the “stranger” is a stranger to us…
Mal’s face in panel 2 and 6 make him look clinically insane…. And deranged….. o-o
Wasn’t that on Feral’s hand???????????????????????? D8
Same mark, other hand :)
Unless they get it on both hands….. And Feral wears gloves. The mark, when activated, just shows up through the selected hand’s glove. Doesn’t mean it shows through both either. Magic is weird that way.
Guess we’ll find out in due time. :/
A theory on the Stranger; he’s this guy:
He was there the day that Meela’s family was killed.
“They were trying to get me. Because of what I did…”
–Maybe “what he did” was giving the mark to Mal (and Yuen/Feral); being blamed for Mal’s insanity?
We know that since the night this man’s wife died, he’s had bounty hunters after him… (stated in the last panel of page 62 – http://www.straysonline.com/2008/08/page-62/).
No matter what, I have a feeling that the Stranger is somehow connected to Meela, either because he’s her father, or because he is this man, who knew her when she was younger.
Just throwing this out there…
That sounds like a really interesting theory. We haven’t heard about the guy in the cabin since when he died, but he seems to play some sort of role in this. Much is still unexplained about him. I think it’s very probable.
But if this guy did have the “unique abilities”, my question is, why didn’t he use it in the fight against Feral?
MAGICAL RABIES!!! MAGICAL RABIES THAT GIVES YOU POWERS!!! AND HE’S THE ONE WHO KILLED MEELA’S CLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!
Wellp. That solves it. Feral is both Yuen AND Mal in one body.
Mal becomes berserk and attacks everything and/or everyone, including Yuen. Maybe, Yuen becomes ‘infected’ with that symbol while also losing his voice during the attack. Then, perhaps, Mal turns out to be the one that killed Meela’s family.
XD I’ll bet he strangle Yuen unknowingly or something thus, scarring his throat. But idk, just an assumption.
Uh-oh – Meela knows something about that symbol…..anyone else think Mal might be a young version of her dad or some other relative? She knows something…………
Yea, she knows about it because she saw it on this page:http://www.straysonline.com/2011/10/page-193/
or maybe saw it in the 6 months she has lived with him.
