"And as long as dot bad gurl iz in de lady's head, he vill remain in de shadows."

"Remain"? Hmm. I still think it's Higgs ...

... but what if it's Barry?!

There is much that the Jagers would do for the Heterodynes. Pretend that a Heterodyne is actually a Jagergeneral is a bit much.

Higgs is the seventh general?

My list of potential candidates, in order of plausibility:

1. "Airman" Higgs

2. Bill Heterodyne

3. Barry Heterodyne

4. Klaus Barry Heterodyne

My money is on Higgs. Always has been. <3

How about Judy or Punch? Either would make a dynamite general.

Actually, from what we know so far, Higgs being the seventh gereral and "the keeper of many secret things" makes the most sense. It is obvious for some time now that Higgs has a connection to both the Jaegers and Der Kestle. It would also make sense why he was with the Wulfenbach Air Corps - having a gerneral on the inside but unknown to Klaus would be benefital as it would allow seeing things that the Baron would try to keep hidden from the Jaegers.

Based on Der Kestle's recognition of Higgs (when he was fighting the fraction of Der Kestle in the Muse), it would seem Higgs has been "under cover" even before Bill married Lucrezia and perhaps much longer. It is possible "General Higgs" could be a failsafe in order to keep the Family and their secrets save should the other Generals and the Jaegers fail to do so.

As to why Higgs looks so human? Maybe it was his quirk when he drank the JeagerBrew - it made him a Jaeger without making him look like one.

I've always thought Jaeger got uglier as they got older. Maybe Higgs is the youngest general.

Congrats on the starred review!

See, Tarvek doesn't want Agatha until Lu's gone. I'd say the Generals approve of a second suitor too.

So, the two unknowns are split between, gone we know not why; and hiding in case Lu comes out, but not refusing to support Agatha when she is dominant. Keeper of many secret things--ooh, I hope Tarvek gets Lu out *soon*, I want to meet this one!

Note, Tarvek's giving out info just as fast as he can, in priority order. He's showing trust for the Generals' devotion to Agatha and how fast he'll dump info to a good listener.

Yes, but in his priority. Do you doubt that he'll hold some things back? Will he tell the generals about the existence of Lunevka, for example, and of how she came to be?

Hah!

It's a good thing the Professors draw people with five digits per hand, instead of four as in the cartoon convention, otherwise they'd have had to use the dodge from The Simpsons: "LUV" and "HĀT" ...

Lol Jaegers would make the best yentas ever.

" Metchmekker metchmekker make me a metch. Findk me a findk ketch me a ketch..."

On a side note I was pondering the seventh general. It stands to reason who-ever the seventh general is, Lucrezia would recognize him when she saw him, hence his need to stay low until Lu's out of Agatha's brain for good. And if he's got some major dirt on HER that would make her plans unravel in a hurry so she'd be wanting to make him very dead very quickly. Higgs is a very strong choice for that position but going on that theory hasn't Lu-In-Agatha seen him already and thus his cover would have been blown? (somebody refresh my memory I honestly do not remember) I'm kinda leaning towards Higgs being General Zadipok myself but I dunno...we shall see!

Here's another thought. Barry Heterodyne Jaegerfied is the seventh general? what does the general consensus say?

I'm almost certain that Higgs and Lucrezia-in-Agatha have not been on stage at the same time.

Darn it, I need to make a table of who-has-met-whom-and-when.

It's not like that.

It's quite possible that Lucrezia doesn't know the general in question as such. So he can pass as "just one more of our old staff" without much attention. Which again points at Higgs more than anyone else.

Tarvek's next line will be " . . . has been wasped and is under the control of a Lucrezia clone clank."

Unless he gets interrupted or something.

Another reason I think Higgs = General #7, in addition to others already mentioned, is that Gkika just described Higgs to Zeetha as "always vit de tricks" and here G #7 is described as "a tricky vun."

A small note perhaps entirely coincidental, but IMHO the various such bits are piling up.
