When all I had was a detailed synopsis for the overarching plot of Satan Ninja
, Eddie was mostly characterized as an every-man. It wasn't until I was writing this issue that I noticed he had evolved into a naive and determined optimist. And I'm totally cool with that. It makes for a great juxtaposition with what he eventually becomes.
By the way, the brunette drug gifter there is Alex's older sister (and Veronica's best friend), Heather. The red-head on Veronica's left is Tina. They'll eventually be getting write-ups for the "About the Characters" page, as will the foreign exchange student Carmen.
Next week's update will take us someplace far, far removed from the school's lunchroom.
