Jack looks great here, now I'm picturing someone cosplaying as him dressed like this.

Being Jack,I imagine he'd be too grumpy to put on a fashiony costume, and simply transform into a goat instead!

I just tried to imagine him going to Tistow like that.

In Yule time it probably wouldn't look unusual! ..Just, a little lonely. There is a wassailing tradition in Tistow (folklore we're borrowing from a Scandinavian and Welsh traditions for the story) that involves groups of people going out demanding presents and singing songs and where one member of the group dresses up as a white goat.

Thank you for explanation. I thought that in Tistow city people were rather Victorian-like and Fjoldi people were more related with folklore. So it's much more mixed up than I thought, I presume?

S'aright! Folklore as a definition stands for stories, songs and oral traditions that have been passed down for generations. In the 19th century it was used to describe the rural poor (often non-literate). While Tistow is a large industrial city, (and most people can now read) their traditions from centuries ago haven't died out. And with the growth of the population and mixing cultures, some of the stories have also been adapted to fit urban life better (like the sewer goddess or the river spirit). Some people in the city still respect these traditions and the old spirits of the land and rivers, so there'll be a lot of stories that we'll explore throughout the comic. ♥
