Are all these doctors physicians, or is this a learning place of some kind?

Btw, should we really export our prejudices to fiction worlds?

Yes, Doctor is definitely an academic title rather than a medical one. We have doctors of sorcery and magic.

As to prejudices, we're not quite sure what you're suggesting. Melasni snipes at Teila because she and Teila don't get on that well (maybe she's jealous of Teila's looks, or perhaps she and Teila were in competition for Karlow). Melasni's an individual, with her own views. And she likes blonds - see Karlow for details... We can't think of any other prejudices we've exported - what are we missing? If there, they aren't intentional!

Yeah, that's it, Melasni is an individual of course, but would you write the same thing if Teila was a very fat or a colored person? Anyway, I was shocked and hurt by this sentence...

We're truly sorry if we hurt you - it was never our intention to cause offence to anyone. The original notes we had on Melasni said that Melasni did not particularly like Teila, and that was shown in her comment on this page. It's a personal reaction to Teila rather than to blonde women in general - Melasni has no problems with Callina and they will be firm friends, and Melasni and Doctor Dalgar are also good friends.

We would also add that at the beginning of Book 4 you will learn that Teila is extremely capable in her own field of magical micro-engineering.

I'm sure you didn't intend to hurt anybody, but I still think there are many other ways to show Melasni doesn't like someone... Well, it's your comic, so you're entitled to write it as you want of course.
