@kidcthulhu: Good to know, I wanted to cut expositions down to when it's absolutely necessary for the plot. No idea if I succeeded, but I just wanted to keep stuff moving this time.

@Lord Enigma: He's got reasons... sinister ones...
I didn't think things were too bogged down with technobabble, but this is short & sweet ^_^

Also good to see Aris still has a conscience.
Damn he's just keeping Aqualus alive like that in his throne room. How sinister.

Unfortunately, we already know it won't end too well for him :(
Oh Jahlil is doing something sneaky.
That can't end well for him.

@kidcthulhu: Aris' backstory is very important in this one, so I figured it would be a nice way to start.
An Aris flashback? I'm more than fine with this development ^_^

Happy New Year to you as well.
Ah Id... yes, all Paladins got one.
And how each one looks is based on the Paladin. Id is a Freudian concept, and to explain it briefly, it's how a person instinctively wants or desires to be, not thinking of how you *should* act or behave.
Aris' Id has her natural hair color, and the dress she got from her father on that fateful day. What does that say?

And that was it for chapter 20. Next one will start February 1st.

I've had this story on my mind for the last 20 years, and while it's fun to finally tell it, making a buck or two while doing so does a lot for my motivation.
Or just read and leave a comment if you like, that helps too.

This leads to a dilemma for Aris, where does her true loyalty lie? Her friends Embla and Panik, or the Emperor and Atlantis, who saved her and got her where she is today?
Nemesis may have his reason to be mad, but is he taking it a bit far?...

Technobabbel about why the characters aren't chasing the macguffins that were the chips anymore.
Idea is that Nemesis can use Aqualus' brain to brute force the system.
... at least that's the reason he's giving.
I feel like I had a bit too much explanations last time, so I tried my best to cut down on the details and get straight to the point.

Aris' call to adventure. As part 2 focuses on Aris, she needed to get her mission objectives early on. Combining her backstory and the Emperor's briefing in this way, I feel like I succeeded in getting straight to the point...

Back to the present, and another small twist. Aqualus is still alive?
Is there any hope for him?
Note I didn't "just" bring him back because I really liked the character. Not actually killing him was planned from the start, as he's still has a part to play in my story...

This page was really hard to draw.
It had to happen, Jahlil was supposed to die on that day, and I feel like I needed to draw it to give it the weight needed to tell Aris' story later.
But it wasn't easy. Having just drawn Jahlil for a few pages, I already liked the guy a lot. I didn't want to get rid of him right away...

... but guess you can't draw an omelette without stabbing an egg...

Introducing... a slightly younger Aqualus!
You all know where this might be going...
As for Aqualus' monologue, I did a small last minute alteration because I wanted to print these first five pages, and not spoil a twist that happened at the very end of DiS part 1. Can anyone guess what he was really saying? It was a tiny change, but an impactful one.

I took a few months off from drawing after doing part 1. I spent these months kinda refining my style. I worked on anatomy as well as getting rid of a lot of clutter from my art.
10 months after drawing this, and looking back, I still see flaws, but I believe I have improved a little.

Also, door opens, is the secret out? Who could it be?

I'll go into more detail about Jahlil later, but at this point, he's the youngest of The Emperor's four paladins. Aris is not really allowed to stay up in DiS, but Jahlil is hiding her from everyone except Tellus, who's living quarters is right next to Jahlil.
I doubt those kinds of details are really important to the storytelling, but it's all there in my notes.

If Nemesis knows about Aris or not... may be revealed later.

It's kinda hard to tell Aris' age from this. She's supposed to be a young teenager at this point in time.
Also introducing her father, Jahlil...

Happy New Years everyone, and welcome to part 2 of DiS in Space: Ghost of Betrayal

The beginning is over, and this part will be more Aris' story, but I'll not ignore Embla or Panik either.
Been trying to focus more on each induvidual chapter this time, while they'll all tell an overarching story, each will also stand more on its own as a short story.

As for this first one, we'll go back to the past a bit...

Of course, I do have a Patreon if anyone wants to chip in, it would be much appreciated.
