I'm sure they have call display in the future, just Anthemys didn't look at it assuming the caller to be Tal or one of her models since no one else ever calls her. ( She likes it that way. )

Bretnon Falstoph Perius Tallifens Monteblanc LV, generally just called Perius, grandfather of Tal and Anthemys, current head of the Monteblanc household. He was mentioned in the very first arc, but not by name. He's the one keeping tabs on Tal and Anthemys - their father is happier to assume the worst and complain than to actually collect facts.

Perius is ( currently? Unknown on dead ancestors ) the only one in the family who sprinkles French into his conversations, because as long as he knows the language he might as well. It's not like he gets to use it anywhere else. However, his first language - like everybody's - is Standard.

The Monteblancs are colour-coded because they all look alike ( careful breeding, not cloning. ) Everybody else in the series is colour-coded because I trained on superheroes and How To Make Your Hero's Costume Identifiable Even If You Turned Him Into A Pirate Or Something.

Start from the beginning of this arc.

For some reason it only just hit me that hey, humans live longer in the future. I knew that Nephos and Jendolyn have been around for a while, and of course Tal and Anthemys haven't aged much at all in twenty years, but it all didn't really sink into until now. When we meet a guy who could easily be his grandson's older brother. (Not twin, Perious' eyes and mouth are drawn slightly differently. I'd put him at maybe five to eight years older than Tal.)

No wonder Tal isn't especially worried about the succession back on the homeworld.

I'm hearing Frank Welker's Doctor Claw voice in my head now. Thanks. :P

Why do I do I suddenly fear dear old grandpapa is going to tell her: "I've found a man willing to marry you who doesn't mind that your brother dragged you off-planet to a den of iniquity, just so long as you agree to give up your personality, dreams and ambitions and make your life revolve around him day and night. Isn't that great?"

Heh, I like the notion of them all looking alike through breeding.

Granpa gives off a creepy vibe.

She seems afraid of him.

Your color-coding also puts me in mind of heraldry, which is probably the basis for Recognizable Heroing Costumes. If everybody's got their own specific device, then it's easy to tell them apart by looking at their chest (if they are a hero, no matter who draws them) or their shield (if they are a knight who is usually in full armor when you see him. They say Sir Sagramore, which I have probably misspelled, was the most social of King Arthur's knights-- and the only one who could recognize ALL of Arthur's knights by their faces rather than their heraldry).

I also like Anathemys's suddenly-shy posture when she realizes Tal does not wear red.

I also also like that Perius is apparently so used to the fact that cats gonna cat right in the middle of what you're working on that his desk has a kitty cushion.

Heh. Oftentimes, I am the kitty cushion. :-)

I'm surprised he doesn't have a cat in his lap.

I want to fill my house with cats.
Statri Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
He seems alright, but I can't shake the feeling he's got an ulterior motive here.

Two cats in the background; reference to your duo, or subtle Bond-villain allusion?
WaywardInsecticon Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
Maybe. ;)

Nah, just Perius likes him some cats and fills the house with them.
