The first in comic appearance of Solar Assassin!

Now some of you have probably been thinking "that Hebiko sure is strong but she's not too sharp" but here's the twist, Hebiko is actually only between 3-4 years old so she is actually pretty smart for her age.

While I'm at it I may as well address Tempura Pandas age too, this is something I deliberately left ambiguous, TP theorizes he may have been stuck in limbo for centuries, but we can assume he's probably an unreliable narrator given that there are no clocks or calenders there.

So how can we figure out his age? Time may not move the same way in the dimension he is in so we can't just use real world time here and say he's four, he may be more then that even if that's how much time passed since old tp's death in the original pg universe.

At the age of three months TP had the intelligence of someone who was maybe 4-5 years old. In the comic right now I would say he probably has the mentality and overall intelligence of someone in their early 20's to late teens. Now keep in mind old TP spent his short life in fairly ideal living conditions, conditions that were good for his mental growth. But after he died all bets are off, given how he turned out its safe to say he's been through some shit since being reborn. The emotional scars of losing Shinna and meeting her less then flattering reincaranation are pretty open. So we can assume the time that has passed was enough for him to lose his innocence and become the stone cold monster he is today butnot enough for him to forget about Shinna.

I'm going to take an educated guess and say TP is probably somewhere between 7-8 years old give or take a bit of time at the present.


Also check out that newborn Hebiko still has the screw on her head even when she came out of the egg, that s no ordinary hair ornament.

Newborn Heby is soo GWEEE! :D

And God-Empress talking about an aberration that can surpass even her?! Awesome. I always thought the screw was a ribbon in her hair.

Hehe , yeah I like to sneak things in that look unimportant but later it turns out they might be something more then what they originally appeared to be. This might be an example of this, at the very least we can see now that the screw wasn't just something Hebiko put in her hair, it was always stuck in her head, what it does and why it's there are a mystery.

She'll also be showing up later in this chapter.Sometime I need to get some designs for the other members of the heliocentric assassins made. So far I only have Solar, Mercurial, Martian and Saturnian.

If she had candy, he probably would have stolen it from her too.

It's probably for the best that Hebiko has the mind of a child, or at least that kind of maturity, because contrary to the "kids are cruel" rhetoric, adults are far more capable of destruction-- especially with that level of power.

I suppose it really depends on the person, with a child it depends on how they are raised. If you raise a child to be destructive, if they have the power they could be pretty bad, granted they wouldnt have the experience of an adult who choses to misuese power so you may be right about that. As we will see, Gemini may have done some questionable things raising Hebiko, but all things considered she could've done worse, or worse yet someone else from mcu could have raised her, fortunately the prophecy was that both Hebiko and Gemini would be nessecery for this to work. And that's how Hebiko came to be the person she is today. Given that she seems to be a bit better at learning then a human baby, it will be interesting to see how Hebiko turns out as an adult.
