Waffle

You may be wondering what does a name Waffle have to do with a Fantasy genre.

Eon was inspired from Guild Wars Role Plays (RP) with friends within our guild. In Guild Wars, a ranger can tame any animals (much like hunters in WoW). I played Guild Wars without the intention of RPing. So when I picked a pet for Ran (the hunter/ranger in this story), I picked the most adorable pet possible - a bear.

I tamed the bear in game and named him Waffle because I thought it was a cute name. A year later, I discovered ingame RPing in Guild Wars. Waffle has become attached to me so I never got rid of him even though Ran's RP personality doesn't really fit well with the pet name he's fighting around with.

So I got my little monk Dani and made up a story that she named him Waffle when she met Ran..much to Ran's disapproval but he could not do anything about it. Despite this huge personality mismatch between the adorable fat bear and his master, Waffle became popular with the guild. He balanced Ran's serious personality very well. Waffle even got a mini story of his own, written by my guild mate Phoenix.

So yes, that's how Waffle came into being in the original RPs.

Waffle the Bear in this comic, Pancake the Horse in another...

All these animal names are making me hungry for breakfast. (Perhaps I should work "Bacon" and "Eggs" into my comic, and complete the meal. XD)

You're back! Yay!

haha Pancake is the name of James' horse in Wanted: Dead or Dead? Link's below, if you'd like to get acquainted. XD

And no problem! I always find a little encouragement goes a long way. Thank you for providing a beautifully drawn comic to comment on!
