    Politics, politics, politics, waffle, waffle, waffle, blah, blah, blah!

    I hate politics. Now I know that I also hate lizard politics.

    And I thought that politics was conducted by slimy, cold-blooded reptiles before this! :J

    So, what is Chic’s “background”? Something that could potentially destroy the colony? Maybe Chic was the Apex employee that allowed the mutagen to leak into the atmosphere..?

    (FYI, the colony destroyed by the Topsiders was Albion West, not the one that the leader offered to send Chic to.)

    So Chic is more complex than fist meets the eye..

    Chic seems a little young for that…unless it was a preschool prank…

    I’m wondering if Epsilon Alpha is a colony for another species, maybe for bird people. Some of the mutant colonies might have decided to segregate themselves, one colony for reptiles, one for birds, one for mammals, etc.

    Yeah, if only these politicians were sharks. Then they would have been useful with being very tasty with some malt vinegar.

    Or maybe Chic was one of those eggs that hatched instead of making it to the dinner table? We still don’t know where the eggs come from.

    Hey, what if Chic was – one of their offspring?!?

    I was just thinking that. Chic hatched out of a lizard egg. Probably sired by the leader, too. That would do wonders for group cohesiveness.

    Chic could be the son of the leader before the arrival of the lizards.
    This colony may have been taken over in a hostile act by these lizards. Being larger and more powerful they could have seized the colony forcing the other inhabitants to be subjugated. That may be why they want Sarah so much. The lizards may be a few ruling many and if the many rise up…..so having an extra lizard would seem a good idea and send Jim, Wally, and Holly on. Don’t add to the non lizard population either.
    There are others about the colony.

    I am guessing Chic was born or hatched there. That would really throw a spanner in the works of the Master Reptilian Race paradigm. Caesar, I’ll call him that for a while because Procurator or Pilatus seems even more wrong, may be The Kid’s father, or somehow related to him.


    The firstborn child of any Reptilian Pair, would be a special child. Even if a selective breeding plan were in effect, “regression to norm” would produce another human, and whatever mechanism the mutations followed would determine what form the human offspring would assume. The norm would be human, but the form is still determined by factors as yet unknown to the audience(That’s us, Yay Us!).


    I’ll have to ponder, but here are the links. Please Vote and support Endtown any way you can. Thanks.

    The question is “how old is Chic?” I assumed that he had to be old enough to have mutated just before the war, guessing 8-12 or so. In that case, he would have either been a resident of the colony before it became Lizardtown, or had arrived here and chosen to stay.

    I keep thinking of Piotr’s words to Chic to the effect that he needed to put sentiment aside and leave. To me that suggests that Chic is related to somebody here, that he is reluctant to leaving that somebody even though the locals treat him like crap and have offered him safe passage to a friendlier colony. That somebody would have to be important enough to a threat to the colony, possibly the leader or his wife.

    The idea that Chic coming from a lizard’s egg is fascinating in that it would answer some question I have about mutant’s babies. The suggestion would be that the mutagen would reshape the fetus in the womb (or in the egg in this case) so that it could come to be totally unlike its parents. If Chic could have lizard parents, then Holly and Wally could just as easily have a dog, a rabbit or a reptilian. The only problem is that if Chic was born of lizards in this colony, he would have to be 6-7 years at the oldest and that’s assuming the colony formed right after the apocalypse and that he was born right after the colony formed.
