Script: “Byron puffs, making near-exhaustion look sexy.”

Having set up the need for some kind of boys-only adventure with the last flash-forward, I had the leisure to develop Gravedust and Byron’s dynamic more than in their last team-up, which didn’t give them much time together before Taro stole the spotlight from them both.

Before we’d committed much full script to Google Docs, Phil wrote up a document called “Relationships,” wherein each of the five original Peacemakers described each of the others. In it, Byron and Gravedust both come across as a bit wary of each other but willing to extend a fragile trust, as each was the first member of their race the other had met who seemed worthy of trust. A bit Legolas-Gimli. Which was nice, but it was time to move past that.
