So actual judgement gets postponed in favour of something more political, for the very moment. With the duo having ended up in a situation that’s goes somewhat beyond just them, it’s an opportunity to dwelve into just how it spills over. While the narrative might center around them, the world they inhabit doesn’t; this, I hope, has the opportunity to suggest just how they might affect the world around them.
Of course, characterizing significant lore vehicles such as Tyrande Whisperwind (and to a much lesser extent, Fandral Staghelm) isn’t something done lightly, especially when there isn’t nearly enough time to see but a fraction of them. Tyrande is ultimately a rather important character in Beyond the Tree, and I make it little secret that she’s one of my favourite characters in the Warcraft setting. We see one side of her now, we’ll see another side in #96 and then she’ll go back to being just felt rather than seen.
Here’s some food for thought, though: is she actually telling the truth about why she showed up?
