Whoa, I just read Alm's response in A New Balance. Although I don't have a character there, I like to keep abreast of the character development. (Yes I made two sex puns in the same sentence :3) Anyways, the thing is...is Alm crazy, or brilliant trying to pretend (with much success to my eyes) to be crazy?
Here's the post for those who haven't read it:

Thus, both scorpions, as well as manticores, are not poisonous themselves, though they have poisonous glands. Thus, you can eat both the arachnae as well as the manticore without provocation to injest small amounts of poison. The same cannot be said, however, for the puffer fish."
He looked at Brahms and smiled. "Also, it'd be best if there was no flirting between you and Anisa tonight. It would be bad to mix business with pleasure, although I'm sure it would be quite pleasurable. Although you may have others fooled with your innocent facade, I, on the other hand am clever like a fox. And like a fox, I can hunt out things that don't belong. Also, foxes have long pointed ears like elves, which makes me think that foxes are indead related to fae. That would make sense, considering their omnivoristic urges. It'd be safe to say that most of the canis family of animals are interesting to say the least, and although many branches of the canis family are domesticated, they are not nearly as feral as their felix enemies. Felines, or the felix family, are commonly refered to as cats. I hope that we run into a pole cat, they are an interesting species, and somewhat more intelligent than your average canis lupis."
The young grassrunner sucked in his breath. "Although, to bring back to the manticore, it is hard to figure out what branch of the animal kingdom it belongs to. Some could argue that due to it's body shape, it could be a member of the felix family, though with it's wings, it looks more rodentia. Although, with the tail it harkens a liking to the arachinda family aforementioned. Frankly, in all truth, it belongs to the chimera family, a relative of a nasty creature, most likely created due to some sick Kastuulian wizard bored with his pet."
Alm cleared his throat and rose to his feet. "Coras, my boy. Let us harvest the hearts of said chimera family pests and smoke the meat. 'tis said, in some barbaric cultures, that one who eats the heart of it's enemy becomes insanely brave, and nary impenitrable. Of course, that is hardly the case here. But at least we'd have more food for the road."
