There's more to the TV-style than "vampire-esque". Bill sticks out like a sore thumb. He doesn't have the 50's greaser style. And he isn't particularly gangster-like. Ben at least has some modern "inner-city gangster" touches... even if that puts him slightly out of step with the "mafia-type gangster" style of TV.

Not saying Ben couldn't have come from another side, mind you.

For what it's worth, Vinny called the vampire look "Transylvitan Signamancy" in reference to Albert, who also isn't gangster-like (and he's more punk than greaser, though I plead ignorance as to where precisely the line is). I just can't remember if Ben being from another side was explicitly stated or just something I've always assumed based on his signamancy.
That picture of Sky.
If my wife made faces like that when she was annoyed, I would be hard pressed not to tease her constantly just to see them on her.
[Just to be clear, I mean picture 2, with her holding the gun, not picture 3, with her dressed up in CC blues.]

I tend to agree that he came from another side, but then that's also very Mafia. the money guy was rarely family, and never "Made." As far as bill goes, hes not very 50's but he's plenty Nosferatu.

Bill mightn't be "nineteen fifties greaser" but he's certainly a greaser (or at the very least a grease monkey). He reminds me of Ralphie, the retarted guy with the stutter from Mafia: The City of Lost Haven.
(So what, that'd make Bill a 1930's gangster?)

Also we've seen Parson, Wanda, Ansom, Bill and now Sky in the CC blue, it seems to be a trend, wonder who will be next ?


Probably showcasing the things Charlie would have got if Fate wasn't trying to kill the player that is winning.

Parson got the "why charlie hasn't win yet?" thought at least, but he still needs to find out about the rest of the Erf+numbers thing...

which I suppose will come soon after this long turn finally ends, which I suppose its a fated thing, otherwise the natural turn end would have already came in and forced them to lose the turn. (but then wanda hasn't conquered the MK which is also coming soon this turn)

The last drawing of Skyy deserves to go into the gallery.

And is that she is an intermission girl some kind of foreshadowing? Is she ending one arc to become the main character in another?


Nope, its almost a free pin up for all of us. :p

I just realized that at the end, when the lights go out, that Skyy using her ears to see in the dark while Ben can't means that she has echolocation powers.


that's natural findamancy?

Bill is the mad scientist from The Monster of Frankenstein. Eh, Dr. Frankenstein, then. He fits in thematically, as in, undead monster theme. And consequently, his obsession with his perverse fantasies rather than the Side's goals, is reflected by his total lack of gangster theme. He's playing with dolls while the others are teaming and scheming.

Bill is also Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs.
Question: Is the contrapositive a type of reversal? I.e, can Transylvito create a new ceasefire agreement wherein Transylvito is now paid for breaching contract terms?

It'd be something rather hilarious to see; every time Skyy shoots a doll or a doller, kaziing!
