The punchline of this strip was the original idea that inspired this entire storyline.  Originally it was going to be something Aylia said, when the people in charge of "testing" her as the Child of Prophecy explained the reason the prophecy had been missing for so long (someone, long ago, had lost it).  But this turned out much better; in fact, it was the knowledge that I had to fit that line in somewhere, along with my friend's words, that created Kuralla to begin with.  So behold her origins!
