We *have* seen this before
I'm not seeing anything in that VN but --- do we have a picture of Miho & Piro's kid in Endgames?
That fact that Miho knows she is dying is nothing?
Nothing that would tell us who the kid is.

The little boy with the long hair in the middle of panel 4 [1345].
So I'm not seeing 'dark hair with white forelock', more like 'light hair'.

Having The Kid here be from Endgames would have been pretty bent (in a good way).

Pirogoeth and the girl with the white lock represent the same thing.

Moeko makes sense but the hair doesn't match...
Except Liminaut I believe is talking about the actual Moeko, whom we haven't seen at all before this, not the "representation" played by Erika (which we have seen in various forms).

We've had explicit reference recently of Stability making changes, even drastic changes, to the appearance of a portrayed MG, presumably for their own purposes in handling the fan base. So just as Ririka was told that a skinny little blond girl would "play better" than her own appearance, I can see some Stability jerk saying early on in Moeko's process, "No no no, we need something a lot more Sailor-Moon-y, not this Rogue shit."

Yes, I was talking about the actual Moeko.

I think I'll wait for confirmation or contradiction from the Source. If we don't get it, then that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. ;>

Teddy, didn't your mother teach you not to talk with your mouth full. The heck were you trying to say anyway? I could only translate about half of it.

[a small canister of helium appears in Mal's hand inside Teddy's mouth]

Teddy, Teddy, Teddy. You do realize that I'm a kitsune, right?

[Mal presses the trigger on the canister which starts to fill up the werebear's insides as he swells up and starts to float away. Mal's arm then turns spectral and slips from Teddy's maul as it seems to seal airtight. Mal then ties a string onto one of Teddy's fangs and walks out of the thread pulling his Teddy Werebear balloon behind him.]

BTW, I don't bark, I yip ;>

I never noticed that kid before. I was about to say I didn't see anything in-comic to indicate it's a boy, let alone Pirogoeth's... but now I see the transcript mentions an also-shown "M1r0" (note the numbers). If that's not the kid it's one of the grinning merchants which seems unlikely; "Miro" isn't obviously a boy's name to me but is close enough to Piro that it makes sense.

Search ninja claim this only use of "M1r0" in comic... but also whistle nonchalantly, refuse make eye contact. Most un-ninja-like. :x

So... yet another almost-a-clue that Fred evidently doesn't mind us being aware of, but has not yet explicitly surfaced in the comic. (I really wish we had access to the version control of the transcripts... I would love to do a 'git log -G"M1r0"' and find out when this little teaser was planted. :lol:)

Miho + Piro = M1r0 (in 1337)

But that's still not who the girl with the white shock of hair represents in this comic.

M1r0 is the offspring of Moh and Pirogoeth

You were right :) and so was Luminaut :)

Well "someone else" was still only my 3rd choice (behind "Miho herself" and "Ririka"). I was building up to saying that Liminaut's guess of Moeko seemed a bit more likely to me than an Endgames character (Pirogoeth or Miro or whoever), but 1541 came up in the meantime. :lol: So no, Liminaut gets the cookie(s) on that one (for whatever my vote's worth).

Laugh it up you little fuzzball. I am sure Shadowrider or Kendermouse could be persuaded to put a spell on you if I ask them to nicely.
