As for Duty, Loyalty or Obedience? If Parson can break the rules of the world, I reckon those won't affect him overmuch in this case. He held Gobwin Knob using his own initiative (so it's ruined- big whoop, it can be built anew), he didn't sell out, and he did what he was summoned to do. And it's still possible they don't actually hold any sway over him in the first place.
Jetstone might not need or even want her, but Jillian has asked her to turn at least twice, and during the second time Gobwin Knob was w/o their leader and seriously booped. So thanks to her toy she would’ve had access to the alliance. And while the Coalition would've been wary of her she would've at least sided with the winning team that had an Arkentool she could try to steal somehow.teratorn wrote:We don't know the general feeling about croakamancy and torture in Erfworld. Why would Jetstone need her? The good thing about Stanley is that he can be told what to do.
It can also depend if there is a backstory between the Croatans and Jetstone. The words uttered by Wanda when she fell in the courtyard may not be about Jillian.

Stanley had an attuned Arkentool, and (presumably), whoever the mercenary group was going to be fighting didn't have a Tool at all, attuned or not. Staying home would have probably been MUCH more dangerous for her.

He's got cowlicks sticking up everywhere. Look at the long shot of Jack in panel 2 of page 144. See the wild hair. Now look back to panel 3 of page 82. Look carefully at the hair of the man kneeling immediately to the left of Banhammer. Wild hair. If that's not Jack, I'll be Stanley's lackey for next book two.

Also a thought on this point: I agree that the best strategy had Jillain been at Faq during the attack would be for Jillain to attack Stanley directly. Jillain might have croaked saving the city. So, Wanda, who seems to have been friends with Jillain, waited until Jillian was way out in the field before contacting Stanley.
Wanda may have thought Faq would prevail, but I'm sure she knew some units under Faq would be croaked, and Wanda didn't want those units to include Jillian.
My 2 schmuckers.
While I don't disagree with your conclusion, I just wanted to add one picture of Jack in his working clothes. He's wearing a hat, and the hair style isn't obvious, but that's what he wore. I think those green robes everyone is wearing might just be a Faq or Banhammer thing.

Im trying to imagine how dangerous a masterclass predictamancer would have been at Stanleys side and if they would be in their current status.

Maybe she is still there, along with other Faq units. If Stanley only croaked Banhammer, raided all valuables and flew away, some hiding units could have survived, now freezed in time.
