There had to be a mammoth in this comic. They have mammoths on Venus (it’s been terraformed to make that possible).

A small technical footnote, since this came up while I was having a friend look at this part of my script, it wouldn’t actually be forbidden for Mr. Morales-Parmar to continue hunting mammoths, as long as they are wild animals and he is planning on eating them. Davinder might not know that, though, since he is a city boy who doesn’t spend a lot of time (or any time) around wildlife.

The Guru-ji he’s referring to is the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scripture. Not every Sikh household has a copy of the Guru Granth Sahib, as the proper care of one is a serious responsibility, but the Morales-Parmar household does.

As for what a mallquis is, that’s coming in the next few pages.

Panel 4: Maida: "I see." Davinder, gesturing to Maida: "Follow me." Maida: "Okay."
