    Am I misinterpreting this or did she just say most every member of the love clan is destined to be a house parent?

    I imagine that housewives/husbands are just a role that the Love Clan members adapted to in a modern, more peaceful era. Back in the days when things weren't so peaceful, I imagine Love Clan members were often the ones that kept bases, encampments, etc. in working order -- whether that means managing rations, medicine, or just providing some some semblance of peace and comfort off the battlefield. Plus, she also mentioned that they're often medical support, too.

    It's not as glamorous or cool-sounding as the others, but I can totally see why what they do would be a big deal. I imagine fighting demonic entities and crazed Narakhan cultists can be pretty grisly, for one's psyche.

    White Tiger is correct. Love clan, in this context, is generally seen as a supportive role, not as like...domestic parents or family members. A Love Clan Knight generally is very good at seeing to the emotional needs of others, which means they can be seen helping others more tha being on the frontline.

    Don't think Joy is gonna take this new info well, working so hard only to be told she is gonna be a friendly face in the end. Also drongo ? Mmm interesting insult for her to use, she must have spent alot of time in Australia. I would have gone with Mjinga

    In that first panel what happened to the darkness around the muzzle, I had to go back a page to see if there was another character in the room with them.

    So basically they were historically the Mary Seacoles of the world.

    Let it be known that I said that Joy would take on a supportive role!

    But seriously tho! She doesn't comprehend the overall importance of being the healer of the group! Whether it be physical or psychic! To give her friends hope just by looking at her! To give them a boost of morale in every speech and heroic act!

    She doesn't have the bust for being a main fighter. If anything I have learned that without boob physics in play then you won't be the main warrior of the story.

    Learning about Clans and their roles in Knight activities really tickles my noggin. Don't know if Joy would like to take support as a class though.

    Yeah...I can so see Joy becoming irate at learning that her Love Clan is more along the lines of emotional needs rather than physical violence.
    I wonder...is the emotional aspects how she and Hope were named?

    And here I thought that with the whole "most knights don't get a chance to have a normal family" thing, most Love Clan knights either ended up as medics or knight-exclusive... comforters? Call-primes? I don't really know what to call it without sounding crass. I was dreading the idea of Joy being told that if she wanted to keep on her path to knighthood, she'd wind up as either a doctor or a front-line knight's one-night stand (no pun intended).

    Fortunately, if you look at what Blondie says in those last two panels, it seems that Love Clan knights "usually" wind up in support roles, but they aren't strictly confined to them-- meaning that if Joy's talents really are combat-oriented, she'll probably be placed in that capacity. So I'm not too concerned about her prospects-- she's too good at fighting-- and she enjoys it too much-- for the powers-that-be to stick her in a support role.
    She's destined to be on the front lines. Mark my words.

    That wqs actually at the back of my head after re-reading the page. So Joy may not be as supportive as Grace,but she could still kick ass and be closer to Fire clan status than Love.

    Also. Field Medics existed which were...well they were basically saints on the field!
    If Joy becomes a support role she'll slowly realise that she'll not only be a capable warrior,but a well respected healer at that.
    I mean. Beauty,Brawn and healing abilities...

    Personally, @Zoie Falcona and I discussed this and we agree that one fights harder for ones they love and The Love Clan are probably the most fierce and the greatest headaches to deal with. As the saying goes... One fights harder when they fight for someone they love

    I would say if one has something to fight for will fight harder. Religion is the reason for many wars so I would say its a stronger force than love. Unless you called it a love for one's religion.

    Zealotry is a discussion for another day. Guess I was raised up on too many cowboy movies where the hero would go through hell n high water to protect or save the ones he loves.

    Nah, I never really cared for westerns, but I have a similar perspective. It's pretty well accepted that love is a spectacularly powerful motivator, perhaps best exemplified by the classic "mother lifts a car to save her child" scene.
