NatChon, Bast does have scars on his neck, you can see them clearly a few times in the GNS. The Ravat Father Theory has been discussed before I believe, and it is plausible I believe.

@NatChon: Check page 9 then onwards, I think I've already posted that theory first. And you are correct, he uses his scarf to hide his scar, probably came from his childhood abuse.

Sorry I missed that.

So, he's wearing the scarf in Prelude, but there isn't a good shot of his neck yet. So, it's fairly possible we may never get to see how he got that scar if he even has it yet or he hasn't gotten it yet and the scarf is just for show for now.

I assume you mean no good shots in the prelude? Otherwise there are several good shots of Bast's neck in the GNS. :-)

Yeah, in Prelude his neck is pretty much hidden behind that oversized scarf. We got at least one good shot in V2. Now, it's all a matter of seeing it in Prelude.

Do we really need to get a good shot of his neck in prelude? We know he has it now. Where and when he gets it, no one really knows unless it is put into the story at some point. Maybe him and Mace start to get along and he tells Mace why he wears the scarf so much, or Lilith or, unlikely, Namah or Vanth.

I was afraid of looking at this thread because of spoiler. Turns out I was right;-;

There are only spoilers up until the end of volume three.

I shall avoid saying anything further on the matter of his neck for obvious reasons.

I wasn't trying to spoil anything. I haven't even read book 4. I'm still waiting for him to upload the rest of 3 because I don't have the money to buy them.

Soooooo, I think we got more than what we bargained for when it comes to knowing how Bast got the scar.

Turns out, him and his mother may have been victims of domestic abuse by his father. His mother was apparently tortured and maimed and in the process, Bast's throat had been cut. He barely looked to be five years old when it all happened. In her dying moments, Bast's mother comforted him and grabbed the red scarf to wrap around his neck to stop the bleeding. Moments later, she dies with him holding onto her.

We get a good view of all of her injuries as well as the mess in the room where it happened. We may or may not have confirmation that Ravat is indeed Bast's father based on a vaguely-detailed picture that had fallen to the floor of a young Bast, his mother and a male dreamkeeper with the exact same color fur and eyes as Ravat. Also in the same picture, it would appear Bast's mother is wearing the same red scarf she gave to Bast to save him.

So, we now know how Bast received the scar and the scarf appears to be gaining more and more sentimental value. We also know that Ravat is quite possibly Bast's father and the one who tortured his mother and harmed him.

Just to point out, the claims of domestic abuse and Ravat being responsible are currently speculation. Until we get to see more of how this happened, we can only go by what we've seen so far, as usual.

In either case, this was a really huge bombshell. We'll have to see where it goes in the next installments.

Well, if Bast immediately flies into a psychotic burning rage when he meets Ravat, I think we'll know.

Or, if he torches a Ravat WANTED poster or smashes a data-scroll with Ravat's face on it. We may not have to wait for a face-to-face moment to make the connection.

... Anyone else think bast looks like lucario?

I think the kind of trama Bast is dealing with would make him freaze up at the sight of Ravat, then maybe blow up, or simply stand there shellshocked until someone snapped him out of it.
