May or may not be pertinent but within medieval thieves guilds 'cousin' was the term one thief used to refer to a guildmate. If Ashley is copying real old world thief vernacular, then it's possible none of these Frummagems are even blood related, merely assuming the guild master's family name.
Another frummagem girl! This famely is awesome. There weren't any frummagem females in the comic accept Sette, and I was really wondering what kind of women whould they be. This one's hot. Oh, and the blond beside her is scary :<
It's not uncommon for whores to be men, as there a LOT of "straight guys" out there who endulge in secret sex with other men. To assume that they'd only go there for the women is a pretty narrow view. And maybe Nary is transgendered, which would be pretty kick-ass.
Better nip this in the bud: That is NOT Stockyard. Both those chicks are in Stockyard's employment, and are considered cousins of Sette. Gildare up there has the right of it when he says all the Frummagems call themselves cousins. Joining the gang is joining the family and when you do so, suddenly Nary is your uncle.
@Ashley: OK and that's interesting!
Was Stockyard's Da his biological father? Or was Stockyard's Da another uncle to everyone who adopted Stockyard as his protege and heir? Nary said he inherited his position, so that might mean there were multiple branches of the family, with their bosses being "uncles".
Well, better to have Nary for an uncle than to have... Bob, I guess? Quoting Nary seems to be an easy way to remind people just whose villainously influential wrath they'll be risking if the quoter gets doublecrossed. Or has their time wasted. Or disapproves of actions taken by the target of their coercion. Or just wants to prove a point :D
Ugh, I hit 'speak' before I was done sayin' everything I was thinking. So, to continue with my speculation: I wonder how many of these sayings are actually phrases Nary is fond of using, or if it's just accepted as good practice by all his subordinates to build upon the myriad mysteries surrounding him, in order to make their entire organization that much more, uh... mysterious and imposing? | And where do I find me a Sharte girl like that? She is instant, nameless hotness!
haha, i knew that was a man whore, its all about knowing art and the body, i could have spotted him half a mile away. this is getting better and better. it would be interesting if stockyard pulls away and starts a clan war.
