Holy crap does that 1889 guy have a monocle?!?! AWESOME!

You’ll also notice that the 1500 era wizard is sporting a monocle as well. It should not come as a surprise to many though, as its a well know fact that the might of a given wizard is determined by their number of worn monocles.

Actually not that far-fetched, as they could theoretically use that monocle as a soul jar, or have it made from precious jewels and use it to store magickal power, or etc.

So, as follows, there are Master Wizard’s robes that are completely composed of overlapping sheets of monocles, held together with felt and spells.
Unfortunately, Master Wizards had very short life spans and typically died of either over-exertion or heat stroke. Why they died of these causes is a mystery to today.

Is it just me… or is the kid Lorne Lyon? He looks a lot like your sketches of him when Lorne was a child.

Two things- Happy hippy kid recieves medallion and becomes happy hippy lion and
two- Chica did you SEE Jim’s neck four or five pages ago? Wouldn’t be complaining if I were you xD

However after 100 generations or so almost everybody shares a common ancestor. Thus we are all mix and beasts in disguise.

I’m not the best at math, but if you were right about the 100 generations thing, than all this medallion and unturned human skulduggery would have to have started at least 10000 years ago. For reference the Egyptian pyramids were built roughly 4000 years ago give or take the odd century.

What of a clever spell, in several generations very large segment of the population would be nonhuman, over time the percentage would near 100%.

Depends on the birth rate. As we discover later in the story, if a non-human mates with a human, the offspring is sometimes just a normal human. And some of the non-human species have lifetimes significantly longer than humans… usually a long lifetime corresponds to a slow reproduction rate.

Plus, there’s not enough medallions for everybody… even if the percentage would be near 100%, about 98% of those would never have a medallion, therefore would live out their lives as a human.
