Actually, it may be more of a sploot.
When a species evolves to imitate many different kinds of creature, a lot of weirdness can
end up in their underlying genome. For instance, certain phenotypes of Mia's species are
meant to imitate cats- a creature flexible enough to land gracelessly with relatively little harm.
Trained adventurers like Mia know that an uncontrolled fall is usually safer- Long limb bones
don't squish as much as a ribcage or, surprisingly to human perspective, a skull.
Also, it's funny.
As a cost of this, embis strength and weight are both reduced- But agility and stamina help
counter this greatly, as well as sharp claws, strong bite, very sharp senses, tool use, and a non-
hostile, practically universal xenophile attitude which usually prevents hostile encounters in
the first place.
Basically, Mia's explanation could use a lot of work.
Now you can be certain that the lighting effects of the top panel are actually a little bit beyond me-
I don't really know how I did them. I'm thinking it may be a couple years more understanding of color theory
before I can pull off such a thing consistently, but I really do like it!
Also, Mia's still a silly goofus.
Have a good one!
