Sundar, of course, has a long-standing animosity toward magick users.

This story was mine with very few edits from Phil, but I felt like the closing gag here is one of the best examples in the series of me channeling his voice. (It was Phil’s favorite moment in the story, too, so he agreed I was probably on to something there.) I think I saw Rendar at this stage as sharing some of the offbeat but incisive perspective I saw in Phil. He’s a guy who marches to his own beat, and it takes a while for anyone else around him to learn the steps.
