So, all that Nina has to do now is find a Jaeger lying around somewhere...

Well if anyone in the cast is drift-compatible, it'll be Nina & Tia.


I'm hoping that if they do actually reset Layla's personality, she at least gets to keep her memories.


Also, Tia's imaging Nina in a rather cute dress.

So what makes them think those statues and indeed, the kaiju, weren't there before Layla regained her memories? Who are they to decree what is and isn't 'rogue'?

That's the big problem here, even if Nina is entirely right, even if they could forcibly change Layla without leaving her a souless/mindless husk, that doesn't mean that Layla would want to go back to being as she was before. And how well does Nina really know Layla?

Good question. But since a big chunk of memory was in *Nina* before and what Quintessa stuff there was was buried beyond retrieval, the presumption is that they couldn't have been there.

Whether Layla likes being Quintessa, even if Nina doesn't like it, is an entirely different question, of course...

I'm not sure that would be possible - the entire difference is that the Layla memories are being buried by the Lamia memories, after all. They either reverse the process and (re)bury the Lamia memories, or she stays Lamia-dominant given that red plasticine is only 16 parts in a thousand parts of blue. The closer the mix gets to finished, the less purple and more blue it looks.

You're forgetting Tia seems to be fairly knowledgeable about magic; particularly when it comes to switching things around. There's also the possibility she may be older than she appears. Either way, it's likely that she knows what she's talking about.

And Nina has grown up with her sister for all 14 years of her life. That's sufficient time to get to know someone, and she knew enough that the person they're dealing with now is no longer her sister - just as I and several others also noticed that Layla's personality was being taken over by Lamia's.

Do you honestly think Layla would be okay with being overridden like this? This Layla? As in: "I will not kneel... not to Faith... not to you." I doubt it.

You know from the look of the last panel I was expecting some kind of roar to accompany the view.

This requires theme music. \M/

Also I agree with J, Nina does look cute.

It's true the resurection was only recently completed... but Layla was always the reincarnation of Lamia.

Yeah, it was only a matter of time before Layla decided to live her life in a way Nina happened not to like, this just happens to be more sudden than might otherwise have been expected.

Yeah, she's changing because she's ancient. Her innocence is gone, but the main difference is her sheer age.

I knew it. Lamia is, at the very least, trying to bury Layla so she doesn't have to 'share'.

Passing Through: That is not believable at all. Layla, through the entire comic, has been fiercely protective of Nina. Yet somehow, we're supposed to believe that after this 'resurrection' she would actually forget Nina's name, and airily dismiss having forgotten it as just being funny?

This is a Ma'ar/Mornelithe Falconsbane type of possession, mark my words.

That's actually a major philosophical (and more recently scientific also) issue: is someone's personality (and identity) completely defined by their memories and experiences? And that question gets even more complicated in a fantasy settings where "souls" are proven to exist (though again, what exactly IS a soul without its memories? How can you define that concept?)
