The fact that we’d already intro’d a few new characters in this chapter meant we could pull this fake-out. Neither of the characters seen here are new, but one is wearing a disguise and the other has only had a handful of appearances, none of them speaking. Tags would’ve given the game away back then, but now we can get a bit more honest with them.

Phalanx the Lich has his own “voice” (and we hadn’t even shown a lich before this, another case of pushing into new frontiers). But the powers he uses against Daisy and the way she never actually touches him may be clues to his real identity. What’s most recognizable on this page, though, is Daisy’s Rachelesque fire.
