Someone pointed out here that even though it had apparently been completed, this party of five had no magic(k) user. This never struck me as a deficit, because Syr’Nj’s science was to fill that role as needed whenever Gravedust’s mysticism did not.

I wasn’t always charmed by Bandit’s cute-or-cutesy antics, but I do like her meme-able poses and expressions in the middle row here.

You may recall from Chapter Three that Byron gave Bandit his trust freely and fully in the flooding prison. He values being able to do that. But he doesn’t quite know Bandit well enough to be doing so here, hence his polling of the others.
