Come on guys, she's already said that she's not gonna get offed for Roy's stupid character arc. I doubt it's gonna happen at this point. :p

Saying that you're not going to die is like, narratively, a +75% chance that you're going to die.

I suspect she was already dead when she said it though. She just lied when Roy couldn't believe she was really dead.

There is no altered Sending spell, she died in a bizzare homework related accident.

You hear about all the Warriors complaining that their Dog ate their homework? Wizards complain about their homework eating their classmates.

I think this is Eugene not Julia.  "She" seemed really trapped by the fighter-school audition thing until Roy gave an out.  And the "my... family's burden" thing seems almost direct.

I keep considering dead Julia because the evidence for Eugene seems *too* strong.  I wonder how she would have died in a way that fits the narrative? "Bizarre homework related accident" that was so embarrassing it becomes a Noodle Incident?  I hope it wasn't Pompey, that seems too... mundane.  (I forgot about the Pompey/Vaarsuvius names, heh)

I don't think it is Eugene, because there isn't much point in it.

Sure, he probably could impersonate Julia and the last thing Roy said to him was "Pawn these visits off on Julia", but unless he is afraid Roy will destroy him with the sword, there isn't much point in doing that. What does he have to gain in impersonating her? Conversation? But if he has to pretend to be Julia, then the whole conversation thing is worthless.

Clearly, Julia died in an experiment to give trees epilepsy.

Yeah, it's like she catches herself saying "my burden" before switching to "my family's burden." That fits Eugene-pretending-to-be-Julia better than Julia herself, who's never shown much of a sense of duty. It'd also lend a new meaning to "being stuck up here," and disguises are already in Eugene's playbook.

I don't think it is Eugene, because there isn't much point in it.

The continued opportunity to push Roy toward fulfilling the oath at any cost, something Julia/Eugene attempts:



That or Julia refused to do it. Either way, there's no reason to think she's dead.

My new pet theory is that this is Eugene cooperating with the devils who have killed Julia and bound her soul to the vessel of choice: Banjo the Clown.

Admittedly, something doesn't fit there, but I can't put my finger on it.   ;D

Silly Julia, the nature of this comic means that Helmets Are Hardly Heroic is an enforced trope.

Didn't spend much time with the kid with the puppet, did you?

Their mastery of disguise is why we never saw them in the first half of the comic
