I have seen the universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim –
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,
Without knowledge or luster or name.
— H. P. Lovecraft

Yes, that’s a shout-out to Freefall, a friend to the Devilbunnies and one the best (and oldest) comic strips on the web.  I came up with Dahnai years before the internet — and I can prove it — but she obviously has a lot in common with Florence Ambrose.  Hanging out with a more dangerous crowd, though…

↓ Transcript
Msaka: You -- you're Dahnai!? You're alive? You're real?
Dahnai: Everyone asks me that. Could be worse -- they could be shouting 'Doggy'. Dr. Fumiaki sent other messengers; you rejected them. I thought you'd listen to me.
Msaka: The others asked me to leave my homeland. If Dakar falls, so will Senegal. I won't allow that.
Dahnai: Dakar will fall. A Genocide Man -- a woman -- is coming.
Msaka: Lola Lamb is no threat.
Dahnai: The Genocide Project has a new agent. They call her Caera Shou.
Msaka: Caera?
Sakut: Senator -- our camera on Routes des Niayes!

    Σ:> (Trying to invent a doggy emoti)

    The crazy doctor’s intel is impressive.
    Yes, Caera’s been reinvented, and the other Shou is about to drop.

  5. Remus Shepherd says:

    By the way, ‘Shou’, if I’m translating it right, is Chinese for ‘Beast’. That comes out later in the story. Someone correct me if I’m wrong so I can fix that part in advance. 🙂

  6. Darls Chickens says:

    Another mystery appears settled. From the neck down she’s pretty much anthropoid plus fur and tail.

  7. Ol' Gui says:

    I show up late and I notice that furbearntrout already made the comment I was afixn’ to make.
