alright comics are hard and I am bad at them and my Ray “voice” is terrible so there is like no dialogue ahahah. yolo artistic freedom in the panel where he uncaptchalogues his whip.
Anyways, those squares of light are only really there to serve as visual cues to show that Yaldabaoth is not outright aggressive. If Ray waited a bit longer, Yaldabaoth would’ve began talking, but once Ray drew his Rosewhip, he inadvertently made “THE CHOICE” and ye.
also it is too late for me to change his rosekind strife thing lets just say he can put any rose weapon in it k. he can legit throw pointy roses now k thnx bye 12+ hours on this i am dead.
