For what I gather, after Trace deposes Mary and turned her into a wolf she send her and Raine to live as slaves somewhere. However before they arrived where rescued by Euchre who somehow managed to keep that hidden from our favorite genocidal maniac. Then they went to Lyn'knoll since it was probably the only safe place for a shapeshifter and her transformed mother. Some years later Ephemural decided to cheat on the mask global risk game contact Mary and offer her revenge against Trace in one of the most convoluted plans i have ever seen. Probably at this point she took Raine with her and went to confront the our now amnesiac blue haired hero, eventually getting separated from each other.
Who knows what Mary is up to now. Personally I reckon she left Raine with Maren anc company since she thought it was safer for her. Since after all she is still the deposed, and probably presumed dead, grand templar. Even if Trace is no longer a threat, he still is though, his psychopathic Posee still roams the kingdom trying to fill the power vacuum Trace filled. On top of that the continent was on the brink of war. And since no one really know who or what is Raine it was safer to let her stay on a cozy tavern in the middle of nowhere than having her next to the former Grand Templar.
But yeah Tom's story telling is a bit "over the place" I think that is the technical term. But i respect his decision not to retcon his story and keep working with the limitations he imposed himself so many years ago. Also the comic has a peculiar narrative structure That compounds the issue: Most stories start by explaining the world and setting and then the characters finally set out to do something. Here since our protagonist is amnesiac we have giant holes in world-building and setting which are very slowly filled as the story moves forward.
Ok cool, that does clarify it a bit.
Thanks! :)

I feel the need to say...The slashfic writes itself.
Save that I feel a need to write it, which you should all be grateful I don't have time for.

The previous page, second to last panel: "Are you out of your mind, you old wolf?!"

Here since our protagonist is amnesiac we have giant holes in world-building and setting which are very slowly filled as the story moves forward.
Actually, most stories start out more like "this character has a problem" or "here is this character's normal, and - oops, it just got broken".

The world and setting are explained by watching the characters move through it and deal with stuff. It's standard that this takes most of the story before it's done (enough for the story's purpose).

Advice I've heard offered to newer writers: go ahead and write the three-chapter introduction to your world. Then after you finish the entire first draft, copy those three chapters off to another document - delete them from the original - and see about working the necessary facts from them into the story where they are needed.
