Heheh... Okay, THIS was nicely timed. As far as I know it wasn't planned to go up after showing off Protocol in Blues. Don't see how it possibly could have since it HAD to have been written before the newest page on Blues.

All I got, was just nice seeing more of Marina. I was a bit surprised by how irritated Sareena and Misty were by her presence; kinda didn't occur to me how annoying she'd probably be to them.

I had a bit of odd headcanon drawing this, actually. While the Patriot Initiative and Marina would be annoying, I think the reason Sareena and Misty are so on-edge throughout the chapter is because they're so concerned about Ana being missing. Makes sense they'd get frayed tempers, right?

Yeah, so basically we've shown her in filler and in Blues before but this is the first real Wright as Rayne appearance for Marina Bethan, who appeared in a handful of Black Princess chapters - the fifth panel summarizes most of what she did there (along with her Blues appearance) with it really only leaving out one small subplot she was involved in that didn't directly relate to Sareena and Misty, so tried to make her mostly pretty understandable for anyone seeing her for the first time here.

Funny thing is her presence in this chapter is actually a relatively late addition? Long and short of it is I had been wanting to have her appear in WaR for awhile now, originally had a different chapter in mind for it that I had worked on some scripts for that came before Star Night, then that idea got shelfed and might end up retooled so instead she ended up being kind of a guest replacement Ana this time around.

One thing that probably does bare noting is that she's being played a lot wackier here than in her BP appearances. There she still did the bursting out laughing thing but was otherwise a bit more confrontational, but I decided awhile back to really lean into the trickster kind of presentation and make her a lot more coy. Which works pretty well for pressing Sareena and Misty's buttons, really.

So Marina is working for Protocol? Okay what is going on in the blues home?

Heheh.... Yeah, this is gonna come up in the next Blues chapter. Not really a spoiler since it's not a major factor but Protocol has a team that includes her.
