Consequences from the trial happenings begin to spread out as I tie together other plot points.

Tam would be a character who dates back years now; she’s part of the whole Extro and Wheelie cast I alluded to YEARS ago.

Though technically I’m not sure she’s actually really gendered, being a virtual pet and all. This just seemed like a fun design to do a few years ago when I first came up with the concept.

(That’s right – she’s appeared in several of my in-continuity 24 hour comics, none of which I’ve put up here yet.)

And yeah, any real context that’s absolutely necessary is hopefully in the news ticker.
