Enter Setebos, Stage Lefton May 23, 2012 at 12:00 am
How are your eyes, Dear Reader? If they are weak, perhaps even mole-like, allow me to reproduce the text in that last panel for you:
I must obey; his art is of such power,
it would control my dam’s god, Setebos,
and make a vassal of him.
The above is a fragment from The Tempest (Act One, Scene 2, to be exact) where Caliban, the fish-like monster of the play, laments that Prospero, the magician he shares his lonely island home with, is so powerful that even Caliban’s god would be no match for the magician.
And who else do we know is named Setebos?
That’s right, our black-eyed demonic tween hell-bent on getting his hands on the original, hand-written copy of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Do you think those two things are related? It’d be weird if they weren’t and really poor plotting on my part.
P.S. if you need a refresher on Setebos’ origin and why he looks like tween, check out Chapter One, Pages 4-6.
