Cruel Intentions

Poor Dactyl. He's lived his whole life between the gaps in this comic and so only now gets to make his debut at 9½ years-old.

And his mean old sister is chewing on his toy.

Dactyl doesn't usually go for stuffed animals — he's more of a ball man — but Babs (the flamingo) is an exception. Maybe it's the color. Maybe it's the size. Maybe it's her deep, inviting squeaker. (It sounds oddly bird-like, not at all like the usual hitting-a-teletubby-with-a-hammer chirp most dog toys make.)

Deilos, on the other hand, doesn't really give a shit about Babs, so it's become his toy. She only plays with it to rile him up.

She can be a real bitch sometimes.
