I remember speculating a long time ago as to why FAQ would have need of a Croakamancer in a city where killing was supposedly unheard of. I also wondered how on earth she had gotten to such a high level when she was at FAQ. A that time I had mistakenly believed that the "Croatan" tribe her intro revealed her to be from was FAQ itself - and yes, I did think it odd that Jillian and others never mentioned the word 'Croatan' when discusing history. I assumed it would be explained via retconjuration or something. As always.. I was wrong
I had assumed that, in order to keep their costs down, FAQ discreetly popped low level units, croaked them, then had Wanda uncroak them for cheap units whenever Predictamancy dictated they needed them. I figured that was one of the dark secrets of FAQ that wold be revealed. I also thought that doing that over and over again was what had turned Wanda so hard and calloused. But alas..again I was wrong
So now we know that at some point, Wanda was a mini-Parson with her questioning and interest . Something is going to happen to curb her appetite and put her on the path of serving Fate. I look forward to seeing how she eventually gets to Faq. My guess is that the mercenary Jillian is somehow involved and sweeps her away from Olive while also helping her get revenge for wiping out GoodMinton. (wanna bet I am wrong on that too?
And a fun 'introduction' of Jack. I find it amusing the the foolamancer wears clothes that are so out of fashion and gaudy that Wanda can't even look. And the Diversion Beast was a nice touch
I admit I looked myself.
