With Raene Wolfrunner and all manner of sentinels abound, sneaking in exposition about Hani is alot easier than it is for Tiny who only has Te’len as a link to The Past(tm). One of the suggestions I’ve had waving about from the people I keep asking about how well the plot is coming together is to give some more space to Tiny, so here is.
For the record (just so we’re clear on it), the mysterious Her that Tiny and Te’len speak of isn’t anyone we’ve met yet. The point about the exchange isn’t her identity, not yet anyway; there’s other things it’s meant to point out instead, though for now you’ll have to work that one out yourselves. Character arcs can be longer than plot arcs here!
I really tried to push the fact that Hani’s eyes can now move in this page, letting her head hold a more natural angle and using the eyes rather than camera angle to declare where her focus is. This is pretty much where the effort spent to include it justifies itself.
Hani Foonmall has never looked so sly.
