Twice now I have seen Tempo make a notable gesture when she is presumably using sansai. She places her left hand on the top center of her chest with the fingers spread while her eyes are opened wider than is usuall for her. Is this body language, a ritual gesture, or perhaps just a habit of hers?

The Loroi do use gesture whether they're speaking or using telepathy -- visual cues are important to them, and it would make for a boring comic if all these characters who don't speak didn't emote at all. I have tried to give individual characters distinctive gestures... Tempo has used the hand on chest move more than twice.

Allright, so while I go back and reread the entire thing is there any chance you could tell me what Tempo's gesture means? Or is that asking for spoilers.

Not sure it has to mean something specific.

I just saw your latest update. Let me guess giving a male your "looks like a fang necklace thingie" is a marriage proposal! ;)

A number of people have been making that guess, but no... the Loroi aren't monogamous and don't have marriage.

Hope dies last!
Still, I have the impression she is interested in him, so it might have a meaning.
