So do they shed off their humanoid bodies like a snake’s old skin? I wonder what this will all mean for Modest since she wants to be with Jake and live in his world? Also, why did her mom mature to a womanish state….could that have happened because she lived near a human from another world?
They do shed off their bodies, which dry up like a husk.
I think some Hydra transform earlier than others. The Gorgon was much older when she transformed, but I think the age range for transformation is pretty broad.
Ooo… It reminds me of a lot of amphibians—especially frogs. Environmental factors can speed up or slow down their metamorphosis. Some tend to stay in a larval stage for life—like waterdogs (a type of salamander).
Makes sense really, reptiles do a lot of things at a lot of different speeds and ages. Everything about them seems more mechanical and less chemical, down to the egg temperature determining sex sometimes.
Even so, hearing it took a few days makes me less confused about how rapid it seemed, but now I realize Modest has been there for a lot longer than I thought. Also maan it’s creepy seeing her get all emaciated, and briefly wondering if she’s going to look more adult briefly or what and then ohh no not the case.
perhaps eksboks was simply more mature mentally-wise and that triggered the change? as it is, she seems happy with her new existance, with only her sisters reaction being a sore point.
Well we know that this won’t happen to Modest yet, since this is all a flash-back typ thing during her report over what she did over break. Ah, the downside to that form of storytelling…we also know she’s going to be back on earth…so the whole ‘leaving forever to Yeld’ bit is out…also I’m curious, about the Yeld RPG, will there be Eggplants in place of Gold or Coins or whathaveyou?
Eggplants are a regional currency in Yeld. Other parts of Yeld use watches, bones, gems or fish. And Coins are pretty universally excepted too.
What about Nintendo DS’s? XD
Man, all this info about how growing up works for Hydras is real cool. I’m liking this arc.
Meanwhile Jake’s still waiting at home with a baseball bat.
