"This and nothing more."

Is it a crow or raven? Because I think they sometimes lead souls to the afterlife. It could be a sign!

    I actually didn't know the difference between the two until I looked it up! Ravens don't make a "caw" noise, so I guess it's a crow! It's still symbolic of something, I won't say what yet tho

    Wait are ghosts vulnerable to iron? Was this mentioned before?

    Theo mentioned the existence of ghost repellants (his hunting supplies) in the previous chapter. On the previous page, he gives Edith a weapon from his supplies, and specifically says it's made of iron.

    So ehhh it's implied, but I'm assuming readers will recognize the theme because of other media and folklore. I should be more explicit in the future.

    Oh right, I remember now.

    So how much iron is needed before it starts affecting ghosts? If you take enough supplements, could you punch a ghost?

    Cast iron is pretty reliable. The crowbar Edith has is cast iron, which is really impractical for a crowbar and kind of weird, but it'll definitely hit the ghost. Steel is less reliable, or else ghosts would constantly get hit by cars, and as funny as that would be I have to pass on it.

    If you take enough iron supplements to punch a ghost, it'll probably kill you. But if you come back as a ghost, then you can still do the punching.
