Ol' Alm! He's always existed but I never found a way to fit him into the original version of this comic. Glad to have found a way to write him in this time.

He's a dick.

Do you know what is so cool about this page, specifically?

You learn ALOT about Alm in the last two panels alone.

The King takes off his crown when he recognizes Alm, which symbolizes that he holds this councilor in high regard and seemingly higher than his own status as KING.
In that same panel, we see the queen side-eye the king when he takes off the crown, and in the last panel she is giving him a reproachful look. It gives the impression that she does not hold Alm in as high regard, and thinks her husband is wrong to see Alm as higher than himself.
In two panels!

Also, Alm's dialogue sounds like an older man unimpressed with a young adult's actions, not the respectful opinion of a councilor. He also, in some way, thinks he is better than the King and Queen.

I just thought that was super cool.

@SamTheDragonLady: Yeah, I noticed a few of those things as well. Not all of them, but definitely that he doesn't think very much of Hiddy. He doesn't call him "Your Majesty" or even "Sir". He just starts off assuming things went poorly because of his low opinion of the monarchs. I can see Alm somehow being responsible for Adalia's death, since I'm pretty sure he could easily control Hiddy without her reason around.
