“Luke, I’ve got a problem.” He says instead. I raise my eyebrows.
“Remember back in episode fifteen, you made a snide ass remark concerning the Oomukade?” He mentioned. I screw up my face in thought for a few seconds, and then it hits me.
“Oh yeah! I think so,” I reply, “Something about them creeping me out, or some such.” I finish, as I repress a shudder at the thought of one of them. Yeah, they really do creep my tail out.

“Oh? It’s rare to see you topside like this. I hope this is good news” Katy began seeing one of her star employees enter her office.
“Katy…I-I had heard rumors that you have hired a b-b-boy here?” The Oomukade asked.
“Hm? Oh! You’re talking about our Anon. Yes he is the new employee, in fact he’s going to be showing up any moment now. If you want to you can stay and say hello. I’m sure he’d love to meet-” Katy began.
“He’s coming here! Now!? B-b-but I-I’m not ready! I-I don’t even have a topic of conversation! I-I’m sorry! I-I have to go!” She quickly began to panic.
“Please you need to calm down, I bet you two could actually click if you just-and you’re already running away…” Katy said watching her employee run away.

“Manticore.” Mari corrects. “A beast whose cunning, beauty and lust rivals even that of my lilim sisters.”
She turns the page and I’m greeted by the striking image of a woman with charcoal grey flesh, wolf’s ears and an eye with dark sclera similar to Mari’s. In her portrait, she seems to be looking at me with a toothy grin, complete with even sharper and more prominent canines than Mari. There appeared to be a mane of dark fur around her neck
