You now know as much about the Game as anyone who isn’t playing it — and, for that matter, quite a few of the players.


Bianca: No, I mean a Being. From the Game. You know, with the shapeshifting and the fighting?

Sparrow (off-panel): Oh, right…Why hasn’t anyone ever come up with a better name for that?

Bianca: They keep trying. Nothing sticks.

But it makes sense. The Game part, I mean. They can’t die, their injuries just kind of heal if you wait long enough, and they can’t hurt humans . . . so why not fight each other for fun? I don’t think there’s a goal. They’ve been doing it forever. It’s just battle for the sake of battle — it’s all a game.

…Which apparently has an adorable puppy as one of the players.
