But when telling one of the Heterodyne stories, well, you can bet most of the audience hasn't even heard of Archimedes, or if they have, they probably have the entirely wrong impression about his excellent screw.On the other hand, with various wars creating chronic underpopulation, you certainly don't want to give even aspiring engineers the impression that lacking a partner on the distaff is acceptable.
So, there has to be someone for Barry.
Depictions of the High Priestess Edit
|Pix preferred to play the High Priestess (Pix' complexion is quite light).
A High Priestess (played by whom? Rivet?) appears with the hallucination Heterodynes at the end of Volume VI.
On the gripping hand, popular fan theory holds that the High Priestess of legend is the Geisterdamen traitor, Milvistle, whose presumed ecclesiastical rank would have been blurred in the retelling.
The Works contains no "high priestess" (nor any Geisterdamen cards). It does have a card for "You Know, Her" who may be "The High Priestess" in some sense. The portrait is full-color, implying a character who may appear in the main storyline rather than only in flashbacks.
As An Aside Edit
Pix's costume in the Sturmhalten production of The Heterodyne Boys and the Socket Wench of Prague is very nearly identical to the depiction of Agatha as Magna Scientia in the Studio Foglio Christmas ornament offering (and occasional wallpaper).
