If Moss were in D&D, his alignment would simply be Jerkass.  Not Evil, per se, just Jerkass.

I mean seriously, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Jerkass reads like it was Moss's biography.

Ok, Jerkass can have 3 meanings.

1. Someone who gives wedgies.

2. Someone who abuses mules/donkeys.

3. A REALLY bad proctologist.

I suspect all three apply to Moss in one way or another. Especially with the bullshit stick lines.

That's Glyph's line.

Actually Glyph, he knows exactly what he's up against... He's read your freaking mind mate.

Its not over yet.  I wouldn't be surprised if we suddenly discover that Danzig is in posession of Maytag's D-Bag and will be able to call upon all her tricks... Although I guess he can null them all if he's quick/good enough... Plus, if he does throw a knife at someone and Maytag gets a hold of it, he's going to regret it.

I'm sure Glyph is probably going to be some kind of Kung-Fu master, but I still think they need Bern in this with him.  Maybe even Crest using the anti-magick sword too.

I should've figured Flipside would have one already, but I found it pretty intresting:

I think Moss would probably be Neutral Evil, although you could argue that he is Chaotic Evil.

Perhaps, but overall, I think that when choosing a course of action, Moss seems to choose "what would be the most jerkass thing I can do" rather than "what benefits me the most, even at the expense of others", as many of his actions, such as betraying Danzig, then throwing it in his face, seem rather risky even from a neutral evil perspective.

I would suspect Chaotic Neutral as opposed to any Evil alignment. Chaotic Neutral people tend to be loud, obnoxious and crazy.

u think he's not evil? I think he is pure evil (helping Maytag just because he wants to mess up with Danzig). All he do is either for his own profit or for others pain. It is not neutral.

There is nothing neutral about Moss. Evil's two defining characteristics are: willingness to harm or sacrifice others for pleasure or to achieve goals, and lack of empathy. Moss' two defining characteristics are, guess what, willingness to harm or sacrifice others for pleasure or to achieve goals and lack of empathy.
It's not really a judgment so much as simple observation.  :-\

Next page - Glyph lying on the floor bleeding and bruised, and moss saying "It's not magic anymore, but he still has a staff, you dumbass."

The first panel has thrown me off a bit.
It looks like Danzig was looking back at something for a second, likely that slave guy.
I can't help but think he can do more with that flower.

I kind of presumed he just had his body side on, with his left shoulder facing Glyph for that first panel. Then he's steped forward quickly with his right foot and thrust at him.

Then again... Anyone else notice that Danzig appears to be wearing a fingerless glove on his right hand as well now?

If he does have a d-bag (particularly Maytag's), he could easily pull out healing potions together with strength, reflex and many more potions to buff himself up.

Wait:


Hmmm, Well the Strength potion has since been used but there's still a Reflex which could help.  Hell, he can just throw the remaining fireblast mixture or even a flash mixture for good effect... But thats if he's got Maytag's d-bag. He could easily have his own with all sorts of goodies.

Heh, yeah. But I'm still betting Bern would take him out in hand to hand if he took another peek at her.



Better make that foot to crotch rather than hand to hand.

If he was irredeemably evil, he would have LITERALLY screwed Maytag over when he had her at his mercy. As it stands, he was just honoring her request back from Book 0 "save your insults for me, I think they're funny."

We also don't know WHY he wants the Thin Man's research. Is he trying to stop or "cure" Mary? Is he trying to cure his "curse?" Or is he merely seeking the knowledge for its own sake?

THAT'S why I call him "neutral." He's leaning TOWARDS evil now, but he's not all the way there.

Yeah I see it now, right after he gets struck by Glyph you can see it as he holds his side.
I kinda thought he stole the glove somehow, or something.

Danzig can cry all he wants that he has fair treatment and choice for a greater good, etc.

The bastard tried to kill Glyph, possessed Glyph and tried to rape Maytag and Bern with his body.

But, as ever, There rarely tend to be completely evil characters in Flipside (I think Derricks is maybe the only one we've met) so Danzig may yet show some redeeming qualities... He'll probably be enlightened to the Thin Man's evil ways and turn on him to save them or something *shrug*.
