4 Panels

Panel 1:
The figure of the Foreigner takes the entire web page. It looks big and black and glitchy, reaching for the reader.

Franquelim (off panel): This THING falls from the skies and gnaws the insides of our skulls! What if it is one of the MISSING PIECES of God? Are we just gonna hide that from the OTHER PARTS? And deny them the connection?

Panel 2,3,4
Franquelim grabs Steffano's cape, almost desperately. Steffano is a little shocked by this.

Frank: Please, Sargeant. This matter is beyond our understanding. I do not know what we are dealing with here, but... We can't let it fall into the wrong hands!
Steffano: Our truce is fragile enough without us bringing an army here. Or are you that keen for another war with the Lusitanians?
