That's an odd conclusion to reach, considering;

If the Butler of Loud Sorrows is right, this would indicate that
Chelsea's father is in fact dead by her hand, whereas the Dark Lord is
very much alive (much to the sorrow of all involved).

Besides, no spawn of the Dark Lord would *ever* have freckles.
Freckles are totally un-evil. :|

Thanks! I was hoping it would come out right.

As to help; not particularly. I work with Phantasm on the setting,
since it (at least the part that happens on Earth) is pretty much his
baby. We hashed out the superhero informal code of don't-screw-this-up-
you-guys together, although it was kind of my idea, as was the
'crossover' storyline.
