Well with friends like that.
That "Splat!"-stuff looks similar to the egg-stuff the paladin created earlier.
I think this goo will either explode or quickly grow into those strange constructs (golems?) Three and Tobi were fighting before.
when in doubt, always flesh bags at people
This seems like a Do Not Poke the Bear situation.
Looks like the pally is pressing X to doubt.
...Did Tobi reveal that to anyone but the Paladin?
@Whim Yeah, I'm wondering now if Maria should actually be able to know that.
Ugh, yet another character that wants you to accept their "help" because they are "only doing what's good for you".
Anyone else hate those guys? Anyone?
Called it: Infinighoul does not give a rat's ass that Tobi isn't crazy about him killing people, even if it is for her sake or the sake of the ghouls' agenda; he intents to kill people anyway.
In other news, it had not registered to me until just now that Infinighoul doesn't have a nose and, my, having no nose but a moustache and beard sure looks pretty weird, ngl.
One has to wonder how long time it'll take Tobi to realize that the ghouls motivations and constant references to her as "my king", "little king", "littlest king" etc. might somehow be related to her grandfather, King Baku, and not merely her given name, "Tobi B. King".
@Violet Wasn't Maria present when Toby saw the spirit on the plateform ? I think she mentioned the ghouls at that point.
@Violet I don't think we've seen any way that Maria could know this. Going back and looking over a few scenes, I don't think Tobi's discussed Ghouls at all since entering the game itself (She and the Paladin discussed the Spirits, not Ghouls).
As far as I can remember/find, the only people other than Tobi/Three/Shalhia who were told (on-screen) Ghouls brought Tobi here were the Smile Foundation reps when Tobi first signed up.
So... could Maria be the "Host"?
Yeah, damned liberals. Hell's too good for them (though ghoulification seems appropriate somehow).
Tobi told the group on pg 2289, when they were trying to explain money to her.
@Whim @Violet @Hennet @Torizo
Y'all I didn't think it would need to be spelled out but here https://neorice.com/hoh_tobi_2289
One does rather assume that Tobi's homeworld is connected to spirits in some way.
Ok if I understand ghouls now then infinite resembles a bat.
