Oops, sorry that last one was me.

As long as I'm here I might as well ask those New Olympian questions.

1) What was Spynx's occupation before she became an ambassador to the outside world?

2) When Taurus said Proteus wasn't like other Olympians did he mean that Proteus was the only criminal on New Olympus or that he was the only one that was an insane murderer?

3) On a scale of one to ten, with ten being a sentient android like Data from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and one being a Steel Clan robot, how inteligent is Talos?

4) Do the Illuminati know about the existence of New Olympus? If not, how would they react when the New Olympians revealed themselves to the human world?

5) If The New Olympians were to become a cartoon show how much of the series would take place in New York and how much of it would take place in New Olympus?

Thank you very much.

Greg responds...

1. Student.

2. Generally, the latter.

3. I hate quantifying things. I'm not a numbers guy. He's smart, o.k.?

4a. No.

4b. Quickly and with determination.

5. Again, don't ask me for percentages. A good amount in both, but I also saw the series as international in scope.

Something that I've wondered about Matt's pursuit of the Illuminati and plans to expose them. If he's correct about the Illuminati (they run everything behind the scenes, and even the President of the United States is their puppet), then how could he bring them down, even if he did obtain proof of their existence? They must surely have enough of a hold over the governments of the leading nations of the world and the press that they couldn't be brought down. (Of course, Matt does seem a bit on the quixotic side, and may never have addressed that problem in his search, but I still can't help wondering about this).

Greg responds...

"Quixotic" is a great word for Matt. And he may be slightly exaggerating their influence both for the sake of effect and to help with his own self-justification of the pursuit.

But largely, he's winging it. Confident that one man (with a little help from good friends) can make a difference.

Greg,

Well, first of all, let me congratulate you on an _excellent_ series. It was very refreshing to see a daytime cartoon with such an extensive, intelligent, and well interwoven plot. The first episode I saw was at the end of an all-nighter with some friends who were helping keep me awake to study for a final exam during my 2nd semester of college. By some karmic irony, the episode was entitled _Long Way to Morning_, and it got me (and my friends) hooked. (Any time any of the gang gets to reminiscing, someone always says, in a bad Scottish accent, "Remeber the quest for the archmage...")
Anyway, on to my questions... (I don't think any of them have been asked yet...) Hopefully, I've caught you in the right mood today.

1. What is Mr. Duval's _first_ name?
2. You've told us that Mr. Duval is the Fisher King, but does his current alias give some clue as to his original identity? (For example, Fox's original name was Janine Renard. Renard is French, I believe, for fox.)
3. Somewheres in the archives you mentioned that Oberon & Titania had two children, a boy and a girl. Are they characters that we met during the course of the series (in some way or another)?

Well, I'll keep my number of questions short for now. Thanks again for your time and efforts!

Greg responds...

1. I've never given it any thought. Honest.
2. Why don't you just come out and ask who Duval is? Actually, I think this is the worst kept of all my secrets. Which should answer your question.
3. Sorry. Questions on separate topics, must be posted separately.

Do you have a story reason that the Illuminati (headed by the Fisher King) would use a symbol that's Egyptian looking?

Greg responds...

Not off the top of my head. But I'd come up with one. Mostly that's part of the whole Masonic/Founding Father/Illuminati tradition/paranoia. Anyone out there know the origin of the eye/pyramid symbol and why it was chosen by those groups?

Okay, here's a few more. THanks again. ;)

1. What does Demona think of the Illuminati?

2. What do they think of her?

Greg responds...

1. I'm sure she regards them as a threat.

2. I'd guess she's regarded as a loose cannon.

Was the Eyrie Pyramid in 'Future Tense' intentionally reminiscent of the Illuminati symbol? (a pyramid structure with a light on the apex)

Greg responds...

If I told you I'd have to kill you.

What is the middle name of Mace Malone?
In "The Silver Falcon", there was a letterhead reading "Mason E. Malone", if my memory serves me right. What does the E stand for?

Greg responds...

If I ever knew, I don't remember. I don't recall that letterhead. I'd have to review the episode.
