Dude, Crowley also lost a lot of blood - he was caught in the Iron Maiden thing. I don't think he's got very much to spare. =P And anyway, Kanda didn't pass through Road's door; she confirmed that, and the room has been downloaded. Kanda is definitely stuck somewhere else.
Road might also be dead... how can she stop Tiki? Anyway, Rinari doesn't *really* need training. Allen only needed it to get his arm back, not because he's in bad shape, and Rinari has been walking around since then. She doesn't have any problems with her Innocence and never has, until now (unlike Allen, who apparently knew nothing of his, and that's why he had trouble).
Road will say stop and Tykki will listen. Because Road pulls rank on him. She's the Earl's sister. I doubt Road is dead from that. She looked a bit like that when she walked into the town where Miranda first appeared.
I just want to see some Kanda and Crowley action. I miss emo vamp and heartless girly looking swordsman.
...first of all, she's not the Earl's sister. Second of all, she can't say stop if SHE'S DEAD (or missing, anyway). Third, this is the kind of thing she'd have fun with. Oh, and fourth, that would be lame. Really lame. Almost as bad as Cross saving everyone.
Kanda doesn't look like a girl anymore.
She isn't the Earl's sister?! O_O. I still don't think she's dead though. That would be lame. Road has fun torturing people. But she might want them all to live just so she could torture them some more. Like kill Chaoji in front of them while they watch helplessly as they've been battered by Tykki.
No, and it's never been implied that she's the Earl's sister, either. She's LIKE a sister to the Noah, but the Earl is like a father (mother?) figure to the Noah, not a sibling. He's totally above them.
I don't think Road can stay dead for the story, but she certainly isn't around anymore. If she did come back right now, that'd be a bit annoying. >_> But if she kills Chaoji, that's great. I'd support that. =D
Okay, my theory on the Tease is as follows (based on Tiki's description of their abilities and what they are): Simply the Earl created (thus why it is called a Golom) an insect that survives on Dark Matter but can't reproduce with that. So in intrest of reproduction it uses the human body (internal organs and such). After/while the insect feeds it lays eggs and multiplies. At this point it won't grow as it needs other Tease as well as DM to do so. When the Tease gather togeather with an ample supply of DM they proceed to combine into a larger form. This doesn't mean they all become one or that they all grow, but can choose which (either that or Tiki can command them to). The larger they grow, of course the more powerfull they become. So to sum this up, the Tease need humans to breed and Dark Matter to combine.
Now here is the fun part, what happened to Tiki. Now for this to work my above theory has to be mostly true, that being said: here goes.
The Noah half is a supply base for DM in the Noahs and the source of their "natural" abilities. It is also the part that the Earl is most interested in, thus he "programed" the Tease to follow the Noah Tiki's orders. In short, as long as Tiki is a Noah, he can controle the Tease.
So Allen briliantly comes up with a weapon to destroy Noahs but preserve the human part of them. This works and well, but it takes time (thus the cross marks on the body right away). The problem is that the Noah part dies when it is cut not afterward, the DM has to seep out of the target (more wounds the faster it goes away). Now the Tease won't obay a non-Noah, even though it is Tiki, so they do what the Earl programed them to do: eat humans and reproduce. Yet Tiki still has DM in him, so as the Tease reproduce, they also combine as is in their program. Soon all that is left of TIki is the shell and the Tease are now the centipeides that are show when Tiki awakens in Chapter 123. They combine and grow untill they all fuse together and form the "Beatle" form for Tiki (although all he is at this point is skin and bones and I mean that litteraly). Now they are simply trying to continue the process but getting rid of the ones attacking first.
So what are your thoughts?
Eh...I really only thought about the Tease (they're a funny equipment thingy) as add-on for Tyki. He got it as present from the Earl or something like that....
....and sorry, I stopped reading after the first paragraph you wrote. It's just too much for me to read now, I need a break...(and I'm sure DE-sama will answer you the next time she's on, she loves to comment on such long posts^^)...sorry again, no offense....*topples over*
No appology needed Celestial, I know I wrote a mouthfull. I just think that my theory covers all bases in the Tiki fight ark. Besides, I actually want to know what D_E thinks of this too. Lenght is because of the fact I needed 3 theorys in there at once or you wouldn't see what I was talking about (Tease ability, Allen's sword, and Noah being a source of DM).
It's.... an interesting theory. I don't really know what to think of it. It seems plausible, but I'm leaning towards other theories (Allen's sword doesn't work, this is just Tiki's superspecial form, and the Tease are simply golems that eat people) at the moment. (Golems have a consciousness, and apparently near-human intelligence; I don't think it'd be unreasonable for the Tease to recognize Tiki as the one who fed and cared for them before.)
So it's a good theory, and I can see it working, but I myself prefer other things. ^^;;
And it looked like that was still Tiki, not Tease... it would explain why his blood was black, though.
True, but I think the "sword that doesn't work" is a no-go. Allen has an over 100% synchro rate with the innocence right now (thus the sword) which means what Allen wants it to do, its going to do. I really don't think that it comes down to the blade not working, but the fact that he forgets to think about details. I also see the Earl giving gifts that would backfire on anyone who could/would betray him (such as a Noah that became human again).
