Saying something positive about Latho isn’t easy. And it isn’t pleasant. So, naturally, the task falls to Snuka, who generally gets stuck doing the hard, unpleasant stuff. The fact that he’s the youngest might also have something to with this…and it also might have something to do with that.
Plus, I actually do think that Snuka is the character most likely to recognize and acknowledge the grayness in a dark character – both on account of his age as well as his own gray zone issues…
Special guest star: Snuka’s rarely seen eyes. Blue, surprisingly. Although I can’t guarantee that I haven’t shown them in a different color during one of the earlier of their few appearances – there’s nothing on his character sheet regarding his eyes, since I didn’t consider that necessary at that point in time.
And so Latho is off for good, accompanied by an acknowledgement of his good side and also good wishes…although these, probably, center mostly around him not falling back into his old ways. And just not falling back to Earth in general. In his new stage he’s got more positive traits, of course, while still being fluffy in places – so perhaps he deserves a few good wishes on that account, as well.
More on Thursday.
