Reader question reader question! If you haven’t noticed, I have mapped out a lot of the Finn Family that won’t see the light of day in the comic for a long time, so until then you get to see little snippets of it here.
Jim and his family are the main branch of the Finn Family, but Jim’s father, James, has a younger brother named Paulbert (Jim’s brother Paul is named after him), and Paulbert is the head of the secondary branch of the Finn family. He fell in love with a human in the early 60s, and had two children, Tim (shown here) and Phin (briefly mentioned in passing in Exchanges: Handshakes). They are quite a bit older than the Finn Brothers, as gryphons generally live twice as long as humans, and Jim’s parents didn’t start having kids until the late 70s through the mid 90s.
I hope you enjoyed that little bit of info that will likely not play any important part in the comic any time soon! Hooray!
The main difference between male and female opinici (aside from the mane, of course), is that females have a feathery head and neck, while males only grow feathers on their wings and back.
