Siberian flickered violently as she crouched beside Jack and Bonesaw, one hand on each.
Dammit, of course!
But wait. Is the real body dying because they focused on saving Bonesaw and apparently Jack?
In between the three of them was a man, hunched over.
Oh, okay, so he’s still with them, and may have been protected too for some of the time, but he seems to have gotten hurt. Possibly badly.
Damn, of all the characters to go out with a heroic sacrifice, Siberian certainly wasn’t one I expected it from.
Legend raised one hand, but he didn’t shoot.
I suppose he knows shooting Jack and Bonesaw won’t do anything and he doesn’t want to shoot a man when he’s probably dying anyway.
“They haven’t seen us. I would like to take out Jack or Bonesaw while they’re distracted and unguarded, I just need Siberian to step away or let go of them.”
Oh. That works too.
The group shifted positions, so the man had an arm around Jack’s chest and an arm around Bonesaw’s shoulders, Siberian behind him.
Group hug! 😀
(I’m kidding, I can tell it’s a matter of support.)
“See that?” Legend asked.
“What?” I could barely make them out from our vantage point. “I can’t.”
“My eyes are better than most. A minor benefit of my powers. The backs of his hands, perhaps you can make out the tattoos? A cauldron on the left hand, a swan on the right.”
Ooh! Well, that confirms one thing – Siberian is a Cauldron client or otherwise related to them – and opens up another major question: What the hell does the swan mean?
I know what herons on the hands mean, but a swan is a new one to me.
