So we have reconnected this subplot back to the hero's story
We are at the edge of conflict
And Dan has yet again avoided showing closeups of holding hands

Are we ready to continue the mane plot?

So now that we have a better look at the cloaked figure, I'm thinking it's Noah. Why? because the figure strongly resembles three other instances of Noah that we've seen:

Mind you, in the New and Old Flames instance, Noah's antennae go through the cloak, but the older examples have them hidden. This shadowy figure would be a good callback to those.

Now the question would be, is this character a bad guy? I mean, they're apparently stalking Rhoda, but for all we know, Arthur sent them after Susan got sidetracked by the tavern minigames. Maybe Noah is the Hero of Magic?

A comic with just "Aw" as it's dialog yet advances the plot.  May wonders never stop.

Some comic advances the plot without single word of dialogue. Granted, not in EGS, in fact I can't remember ANY page without dialogue OR narration in story section, but there are comics like that.

Could be. Except, of course, it's no more Noah than Rhoda is Rhoda - I mean, we call her Rhoda but she's some monk.

Unlikely. I think he would be stalking them personally.

THAT is possible.

No, it's obviously this guy!

Well, this strip wasn't entirely narration and dialogue free, but the only narration in was a time reference, and all the dialogue was in untranslated "meows". And it also is integral to the plot! :danshiftyeyes:

(Actually, there was a truly narration and dialogue free strip not too much later.)

That was one of the links I used in my post.

Oops. I didn't bother clicking the links, and saw that the first one was to the main story and just skimmed ahead.

I've never actually considered the "Mysterious Leader Guy" to be Noah. For one thing, none of the other characters in that story had ever (or have since) appeared in the main story (and the only one who has appeared in even any non-canon strips is Dan)*. For another, Mysterious Leader Guy had an orb floating over his shoulder for the first few strips (I actually thought it was all the time, but looking at the story again the orb disappears when they get into the bandit cave), which has never been the case for Noah even in shadowy cloaked form.

I must admit however, comparing that image with the one from your third link, what we see of their hair under the hoods is effectively identical. I wonder if it's just a case of re-used character designs, or if Dan actually intended MLG to be Noah?

* EDIT: Actually, looking over the story again, Dan's martial arts instructor looked a lot like Greg. Still, the majority of the characters in the story were new.

To the best of my knowledge that  MLG is Noah, but if pressed could not prove it.  Of course "Dan in the MUDD" isn't canon.
