Stone cold embarrassing.

Now that this part of the story has run its course, I can tell you some things about Lena without giving the game away. Lena is loosely based on a character from Flip Side, the fantasy/comedy comic I wrote back in high school. In her previous incarnation, she was the leader of a tribe of desert nomads. Clive had a crush on her, which she used to trick him into making himself a human sacrifice. Old habits die hard.

By the way, the Third Annual Easter Egg Gallery is up. Make sure you pay it a visit.
