The plot thickens! Or rather, it just gets a bit more interesting.

A side note: My original version of P&C that I posted online from 2000-2004 had all of the child characters as normal kids (the whole Guardian aspect wasn’t introduced until the ’05 reboot). I toyed with the idea of removing Skin’s lisp from the Guardian version, but the readers at the time voted almost unanimously to keep it in.
