Zauber ParacelsusWell, Cyrus has finally been introduced, and yes, he is my 'author avatar' for the comic. He won't be a main character, but will mainly exist to serve up plot exposition and move the story along.
As for what happened with Yggath, Karagan have highly unusual psychology and physiology. The consumption of coffee or anything that has either caffeine or theobromine in it will result in a psychotic reaction, similar to what may occur when taking crack.
Yggath had been eating chocolate-covered coffee beans (which Fulton had cluelessly bought for him). His reaction began with trashing the downstairs area of Redmane Investigations while shouting something about the moons kidnapping his lunch. He then fled out the door and began running through the streets in a loin cloth while screaming that he was being molested by an army of demonic coleslaw. After running for four blocks he then declared himself to be the eleventh emperor of a stack of barrels and proposed a polygamous marriage to a pair of street lights.
By then, he had begun returning to normal because all that physical activity had burned off his high quicker, but the police were also catching up with him. Not knowing what the hell was going on, he fled into an alley and has been hiding in the undercity ever since. Also, it should be noted that although it was December, Four Rivers is located in a climate zone which lacks a winter season. Instead, it's just six months of wind and thunderstorms followed by six months of wind and overcast skies.
