Xndr and Hiryxan are courtesy of "Glomshire Knights", and Alison Waines and Sven Rosenberg (on security detail) are courtesy of "Legostar Galactica." Jeff the Ninja is a character in the latter comic, but is not shown here.
Before anyone accuses me of being anti-pirate for having put a ninja in that role, you're right. But that's part of the joke? Or is this the joke? Or...
Cool to see the balcony. I myself lean more towards ninjas, but pirates are cool too. As for the dagger, I bet it's some kind of ninja magic. :P
Love the stage-hand!
If I recall correctly, the reason ninjas are dressed as such in most plays (and consequently films) is that such was the garb of stagehands in Japan. Since the stage-hands were supposed to be "invisible" to the audience, it made it even more shocking to have one of them suddenly act as such.
Or there was a clan of stagecraft ninjas. Both sound good to me.
