So now we have a little background on Bennesaud. I like being able to spotlight different characters in different story arcs. I feel like Bocce and Bennesaud got the short end of the stick in the last arc, so they figure a bit more prominently this time around.

As a minor detail, in panel 1, Roka and Ril are surprised by the revelation about Bennesaud, but Cember isn’t. He and Bennes have been partners and close friends long enough that this is obviously something Cember already knew.
