|Because she needs a friend.|
|She has multiple different versions of herself as friends! I'm sure they keep her company :3 |
Poor Wisp, eh?
|Wisp the lonely soul.|
|I think that's where her Power comes from -|
- Her emotions have "dissolved" into a number of moods and at least one extra perceived identity,
And she can, apparently, dissociate her particles to become less dense.
Also, I wonder if she's ever met Ravat.
Hoo boy, -that- would be an unpleasant day for everyone involved.
Tinsel would just wrap herself up in the corner with her tail, covered in a mess, shivering.
Also, Nab-a-Tall. Wisp you are wonderful. I'm just wondering how long she's served the Nightmares.
I doubt that Andurunans would appreciate such a troubled girl among their children.
Eh, I dunno, but I do know that Wisp was perfect in Vol. 3.
I think she's somewhat aware of how well she's trolling Tinsel.
And I think Tinsel is aware that she's somewhat aware.
Aaand knows that is -very dangerous.-
|I wonder whether Wisp's mind began deteriorating before or after she used her power--clearly she's insane, but maybe that insanity is a side effect of splitting herself into different bodies so often? Perhaps one of the reasons that Anduruna outlawed power use was to prevent cases like hers, where using the power too often causes mental or physical decay that they were trying to avoid.|
|I think she might have been born with schizophrenia.|
One of schizophrenia's effects is the dissolution of higher mental functions, beginning in -young adulthood- and progressing with age.
So, that -might- explain the "dissociation" effects of her Power - the fact that her very identity is dissolving.
I dunno. I know that she is a bby and needs a hug.
Give her a hug, Tinsel.
|Tinsel would only give Wisp a hug if she had a knife in her hand, the cruel pink thing that she is.|
Wisp's desparate attachment to Nabby is what interests me about her. How long has she known Nabby? Maybe she was taken in by the Nightmare at a very early age, and her insanity was caused by living amongst the chaotic creatures.
|[ SPOILERS AHOY ]|
I have a pet theory.
I think that Wisp might have run away from home, or possibly been hospitalized, because she had a mental condition (possibly schizophrenia). Then again, she might have accidentally awakened her Power, and lost control. It's too early to speculate, but we can draw some conclusions from the way Wisp interacts with her allies.
Wisp's only purpose in life is to please Nabonidus and company. At the thought that Randy could have spoiled her chance to make Nabonidus proud, she seemed very close to throttling him. She's not acting out of ambition - she wants Nabonidus, -Tinsel- even to be proud of her. Tinsel clearly -hates- Wisp, and makes very middling attempts to disguise it. When she was angry at Namah talking about Tinsel, I think it was just that - she wasn't angry at -Tinsel-; she wasn't having an epiphany, that Tinsel had been mistreating her;
She was -furious- at Namah, for so much as voicing the idea that a member of Wisp's "family" doesn't love her. The idea that Tinsel hates her is something she can't take, so she'll deny and ignore any possible sign that she's not loved. From one of her clones' chattering, she's forced to constantly tell herself that everybody loves her. I think that was more than an innocent, random joke - I think that part of Wisp's fractured psyche couldn't possibly cope with the idea that Nabonidus is just using her, and that Tinsel despises her.
When Namah referred to Tinsel, Wisp's entire reality was being challenged; because, her entire world is the people she wants to make happy.
|I'd have to agree with that theory, it seems to make sense from what I've read. I hope we get to see more of her in vol 4 and hopefully hints at what her story is. Also "Everybody looooooves Wisp!"|
|I wonder how Wisp would react to finding out peoples reaction to her on the internet?|
I looked at the recent Prelude post.
I'm fascinated by the fact that Tinsel and Ravat both have primarily black halos, but Wisp's is of a seemingly normal hue.
I hope that Wisp can still be saved. She seems to not be true evil - just haplessly misguided.
I won't get my hopes too high, though.
|That's an interesting observation. Dave does use lots of symbolism like that so there may be something to her having a non-evil looking halo.|
I think Wisp will eventually realize that it would be in her best interests to get away from Nabonidus and Tinsel. Hopefully, she will see the light before it is too late but I have a feeling she will meet a tragic end once the Dark DKs are done using her.
|That is pretty interesting to note, although [WARNING: SPOILERS INCOMING!] you have to consider that most (if not all) of the Neon Knives who were using their powers in V3 also had brightly colored halos...but perhaps it could still be symbolism within the little Tinsel/Wisp/Ravat Dark DK VIP group? Maybe? (I have to admit: as much as I really want Wisp to be spared, I'm kind of with Dan and Yorki in thinking she's going to suffer a terrible fate).|
Also, I'm not sure if anyone's touched on this yet, but some of Ravat's dialogue in V3 (specifically, on page 77) seems to imply that Kalei and Jeneviv were both kidnapped by Wisp:
"[Wisp] has quite the dump heap here...not a total lost cause, though. Some bound, begging bimbos, a bucket of hands...and shit..."
It kind of makes sense with her being able to travel through the Towers unnoticed, but I can only imagine what the 'bucket of hands' is about.
|I think he was suggesting ways to add a touch of evil psycho to the place.|
|Oh, I hadn't considered that possibility before! |
I might've been reading into those lines a little too much, but looking at the way the sentences are structured, Ravat's mutterings come across more as a vague comment/explanation on why Wisp wasn't such a lost cause in his eyes than on any villainous decor.
