Yeah don't be scared and confused, we're gonna be involuntary soldiers!
That said, on to round two!
Code name: Captain Justopia.
Wait. Do they mean break the law using magical means or just use magic and therefore break the law?
I assume katter because it is evil empire.
My bet is on Mr Kimberly.
Using magic is in itself a crime punishable by death, correct.
Is the spelling "particUpate" intentional?
And yeah, Captain Justopia just asks for a smackdown.
And I bet, Mr. Kimberly just has a rather useless or inconspicous power, so he never really could've been caught.
Man that girl's headband is rad as heck. also that flag. thats a cool flag.
Ah, a patriot. I suspect Mr. Kimberly will be the winner, given the pressure to cooperate with the Veda Project. I'm curious if both of them have powers in the Pandemonium Family.
I don't get why adult magic users are tried for the penalty of death, but youth magic users are given a slap on the wrist and sent to fairytale boarding school.
@Neoriceisgood: panel 7 line 1 correction
"He... just Volunt*ee*red."
Underage people are much, much easier to brainwash, so they have better potential as a magic cannon fodder (any kind of soldier, really). Some can be resistant anyway, but maybe those resistant to this brainwash meet with unfortunate accidents. Younger people naturally die often from accidents, including at school, so it would be easier to arrange. At least I would do it that way, if running evil empire.
that one reminds me of Bandit Keith
