Darn it.

I read the previous page this morning and I was going to post 'bet he drinks it' but I was in a rush... now I was right and can't prove it. ;)

Nice page.

Y'know, I was thinking of something. In the comments a while back, you mentioned the tea he was drinking the day after that big fight. I assumed it was A) just regular food or B) a painkiller for his injuries when I first saw that page. But looking over this whole situation, I kind of wonder. I assume you were implying it was the same kind of tea as what Danbi just gave him. Given his behavior so far in the comic, though, I don't see him having any...shall we say...NEED...for the tea. He seems like he shows enough restraint in general, especially dealing with the things he deals with (sharp tongue notwithstanding). I mean, he did kill that one impostor, but he didn't seem out of control or acting on impulse. Everything he does seems fairly calculated, so a drink that stems impulse wouldn't make much of a difference for him, would it? I understand him drinking the tea here, because he's the type who would rather take the path of least resistance as long as it shuts everyone up. But why drink the tea when he's alone? Was it his choice, or was his travelling partner perhaps urging him to drink it? Either possibility has intriguing implications. If it was his partner's idea, then it suggests that human biases are sometimes adopted by nonhumans (and probably vice-versa). It's also possible he might have biases stemming from human prejudices to, if that's the case. However, if it was his idea to drink the tea, could it be he somehow feels he does need it? Perhaps because it actually does benefit him or he's internalized these human biases, even though he still objects to being forced to drink it. Or maybe the tea actually does have analgesic properties in addition to being a libido suppressant, and he was taking it as a medicine like I initially assumed.

Or maybe he just likes the taste and I'm looking way too far into it.

It is indeed the same tea. There's actually a silly little story behind why he's drinking it at that point, but alas, I can't share it until after the end of the next chapter! For now, I'll answer that it was his partner's idea. Even though she didn't exactly suspect he would do anything, she wants everything done by the book.

Also, can I just say the question (and the whole comment) is super awesome? :D
