Nilje (pronounced nill-yeh) Voenyr (venn-ear, but with your lips rounded on the e) is the ship’s mechanic, who handles both hardware and software issues when they arise.
I was going to give Nilje’s cousin Havja here full-blown alopecia universalis, but it’s hard enough giving Saye and Fenna good expressions without eyebrows. I didn’t want to try with those beady little weyn eyes.
Also, I would like to apologize to my reader(s) for the first ever late strip. I prided myself on never missing an update, even through weddings, road trips, and hard drive crashes. I was so close to the five-year mark, too…
Finally getting psychiatric help is mostly good, but actually having other concerns in my life does take up some time. (And I think the honeymoon period on my antidepressants just ended, though I’m still better than I was for the first 4.5 years I was making this.)
