Well, better late than never, eh?

I did say we were going to see the monster hunters again. A few of them have had had a severe case of the being-shots, and aren’t present here, including their usual commander. It’s a tough life when the people that give orders are squabbling. The Monster Hunters loyalty is particularly complicated, but it’s a bit more complicated than just following orders.

We have actually seen the person in the last panel before, he talked to Arron after Arron visited the Situation Containment offices and objected to Sophie’s plan previously.

I figure I should clarify a point on art, as I think it’s not particularly clear always, but to people in world Sophie does not look particularly old. Just by looking at them, it would be hard to say if she was older or younger than Elizabeth or Tokiwa, though her hair is grey-ish.
