Nov092018: Mora’s Death (TCM Spoilers)

I feel a little bad for Mora/Claudio, especially dying so soon like that. Did you have any thoughts on what came after for him or no?

Asked by hungry-joe

This is my position as an author, but take his passing as a positive in the story. Mora’s been wandering the earth as a vampire since 260-ish AD. That’s too long a time tbh. Especially since he was an unhappy, unloved teen (a baby!!) in life. To the point his family condemned his memory and subjected him to an afterlife of being a lemure. Like what the heck. That kid needs a break.

I can’t discuss what the next stage of afterlife is like, since the universe the comic is set in is focused on Purgatory. So the question of what actually happens after leaving Purgatory is ??? unanswered and never will be. But trust what Zeynel said, that God will forgive Mora’s soul in the end. That compassion, as embodied by Zeynel, and that hope for a universe which will unconditionally, lovingly see you as worth saving, were what Mora needed to let go.
