Plot incoming!

The Cormorant (Iurii). Unfortunately for BICP’s appearance in popular Google searches, he is not “Iurii on ice.”

The Porcupine (???). Obviously got really lazy about drawing the quills. Why did I make her a porcupine? I’m never gonna want to draw that form in-strip.

Constance Applebaum (Connie). Sparrow’s stepmom. Happy to see the kid employed, even if she really doesn’t understand any of Sparrow’s stories about her job.
