Episode 391: See the Violence Inherent in the System

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

The simple way to establish if an NPC is evil is to just go ahead and attack them. They probably deserved it anyway. If they were good guys, you wouldn't be able to kill them so easily, after all.

Force Drain, by the way, is actually a power in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, a power that we never get to see in the movies. This Force Drain in the comic is not that Force Drain, because of course neither Star Wars nor the Expanded Universe exist in the comic.
