No color-coding in this transcript because the strip takes place in the Magical Exposition AU, where the language barrier isn’t real and the fonts don’t matter.
If there’s anything else about the Leif & Thorn worldbuilding that you want to know, ask in the comments! Thorn is going to need things to explain on future Sundays.
Leif: Say, Thån, a few strips ago you referred to a man as “Aibrean”. What did that mean?
Thorn: That is an excellent question, Leif!
Aibreán is the majority racial group in Ceannis. One of many.
My brother-in-law Larch is Aibreán, as is most of my team (including Juniper) and most of the government (including the Minister of Prophecy).
President Romarin is our first Getsunese president. My team member Birch was thrilled to have the representation.
Our team mage, Holly, is Feabhric.
My sister Tansy and I are Iuilic. Tansy’s kids are mixed.
As for team member Violet . . .
Leif: She must be Aibrean, right?
Thorn: Partly. She’s mixed — part Feabhric.
Leif: And team member Rowan? Is he mixed, or purely Feabhric?
Thorn: What? He’s totally Aibreán! That is a classical handsome Aibreán look.
I guess you don’t get much experience gauging thiskind of thing back in Sønheim, huh? After all, your population is 93% Sønheic (Sønska) . . .
Leif: Did you mean for your sample picture to contain two completely different ethnic groups?
Thorn: Wait, they’re different? How can you tell?
