WARNING: SPOILER BELOW!


At one point in a certain room you

meet a woman. At panel 102 you find a lady and if you think you know her first name you can multiply the amount of letter by the first letter of her name.

I thought it was Serguet, the artist from Annex B. That's 7 letters x S(=19) = 133. But at panel 133 you seem to have the right name, but she appears to be named Solange (also 7 letters starting with S). A name I have never seen in before in the story.

Did I make some strange deduction error, or was it a mistake of the author to use a calculation method that gives the same result on two names (or should he have used another name somewhere)?


Please answer without spoilers as I have yet to proceed from this spot, so maybe there is a reason that

Serguet and Solange are the same person
or something. I don't want to know yet!
If you have to answer with a spoiler, warn me about it!

Hi Dirk Jan, indeed I ran into the same thing when evaluating the books. I'm not sure if the author intended it or not, but yes the other name you mentioned was does work. Up to you if you want to proceed or not.


Also you might want to use spoiler tags on your post as well to be safe.

Thanks for the answer, I’ll proceed in a way that seems fair to me.

Also thanks for telling me about the spoiler tags. I didn’t know about them, but Google came to the rescue. As you can see, I’ve edited my post.
