Also a bold plan to revolutionize the diplomacy.

YES!
IT WORKED!

Don't be too sure.  Klaus is not stupid and may well play along with Tarvek.
I can see this because he would not take seriously any suggestion that Gilgamesh would be supportive of diplomatic efforts of Othar Trygvassen Gentleman Adventurer.
The alarmist 'what' is a sure sign he recognises what Tarvek is doing, and the confirmation afterwards is nothing to me but a ruse.  This is not to say Gilgamesh isn't back, Klaus is a secondary personality riding all the time though and can appear at any time, and will appear at some times.

There is no actual presence of Agatha, so there might not be an actual forced draw of Klaus to the surface personality,  this is also a warning to the Klaus personality riding in Gil. Klaus is anything but stupid and a fair contender for the title of most powerful spark alive.  Tarvek ought to know better frankly.

However that being said Dimo witnessed all this and is very sharp.  He will also keep his own council.  As will Bosun Higgs (who I believe to be the hidden Jaeger general).  I think it will play out thus,  Tarvek is a cocksure genius, but there are far wiser heads in the room.  Hidden Klaus may well emerge later, and I will not be surprised if Dimo and Higgs will be have prepared for when he does.

That is entirely dependent on him not believing his son an absolute screwup- which if he did he would very likely not have grafted that personality override in the first place. This one is up in the air until we know for sure (which will probably only take a few pages, really).

Klaus knows his son is not a screwup.  He set up elaborate tests for Gil's development using Dr Beetle and others.  Later he proved his competence very spectacularly at the gates of Mechanicsburg.  Klaus was rightly proud of that.
Gil has fought Othar enough times to know him, Klaus allowed Othar's escapes to test Gil and was confident his son would not team up with him.  The only concern Klaus has is regarding Gilgamesh's emotional entanglements.  He is in love with a dangerous woman channeling The Other, and smitten enough that knowing that doesn't give him pause.

Klaus trusts his son almost completely, standing orders were given for transfer of control of Wulfenbach assets to Gilgamesh, which was enacted on Klaus's self imprisonment.  There was a rumour, probably cultivated by Klaus that his heir was a lunatic who had to be kept holed up in castle Wulfenbach.  Pinkie believed that one so likely many of her employers did also.  We know also that Klaus smirks when people understimate his son, and warned Bang not to do so.

I am convinced that the personality override has nothing to do with Gilgameshs competence and fitnesx to rule but is there to prevent Gilgamesh from being infleunced by the Other.  As final proof he was willing to release control back to Gilgamesh to fully employ his abilities as a spark.

Now I am biased here, Klaus and Gilgamesh are my favourite characters.  If I somehow tumbled into this horribly dangerous world I would sign up to team Wulfenbach over any other choices.

The Klaus Personality said so himself; whether or not they can de-Lucrezia Agatha, Klaus doesn't trust a Heterodyne and doesn't want Gil and her together. That's what the Override is for.

Just a little post-surgery maiming, come on! Like....take a leg or something, make him eat those sideburns of his.

Really Agatha is too soft now and then.

Funny thing.  I had some time to kill, i endup reading through Buck Godot and MysticAdventures webcomics.  They can still be found if you use web.archive.org. 

I wish they had continued the Buck Godot series, it was fun to read.

Oooh, I am liking this current story arc of "jerk only needs to convince people he's not the worst person they know and is failing awfully". I legitimately can't tell if wunderdoofus is trying to provoke Krosp or he's just insufferable by nature....

well they have a viable plan (note that the test run on Gil worked, as the baron is no longer present) and the modification probably will to. the question is whether they'll get a chance to do it anytime soon, given all the interruptions. (and even then, we'll just have a Dingbot-Other running around. perhaps they should design the receptacle to not have any limbs..)

Sure looks similar. Are they sisters or otherwise related?

I wonder how Agatha going get out of this one.  My odds are she going keep the "other" aka her mom, in her head by the end of this situation.

Also the skull tag. Bang has it on her forehead, the other one has it on her collar.

Apparently the Collar no longer works to suppressing Agtha's room mate (aka her Mom).

i doubt it. at this point it's more of an obstacle to the writing than a plot device, getting rid of it now would be fine.

now, that extracted mongfish copy getting away and leading to two opposing versions of her both pestering them (and each other) well, that's just Funtm.....

Saw that too. My decision was that it's how she's naturally built as a smoke knight. Just the angles and her exposes shoulders yielded a nice view of guns that would rival most soldiers' fitness.
