If you don't remember who this "Brother Nate" is, don't worry. This is the first time he's been introduced and he's here to showcase that some of the Luanian zombies can still use their white magic. So why give this particular zombie his own dedicated introduction? Because a gentleman named Nate was the highest bidder at the ConnectiCon 2012 Webcomic Charity Auction, in which he won a named appearance in the comic. And, as tradition goes, you get killed off.
This has been going on for years around here.
First there was Mancini, and later Jaime, both friends of Arcangelo Scarlatti who were both killed off.
Then there was Chris, a tour guide in the Wild Edge Territories, who managed to survive for awhile until he was killed off himself. Alternately, during that same storyline, Michael was both introduced and killed off in the same comic.
Before that, during the sprawling March Across Maltak, Eric wasbrutally murdered as the innocent orc pilgrim, Eruk.
And most recently, Michael Cao was haunted until it drove him to suicide.
So Nate gets the dubious honor of being the last person to win a named appearance in the comic. Hope you don't mind being zombified, Nate!
That's all from me for now.
