Whoa, that outfit has "evil magic using person" written all over it! ;D

Hmmm... either that statue/seat thing is more ornate than I would've imagined, or he's sitting on the throne of Midland (and thus on a different thing than in 230). Ugh, is that a weird looking turban, or his actual hair?  :P

that looks like one of those "I'm gonna tell you how it is before I get up and beat your ass" shots.
"You dance up to the edge. I doubt that a demon would even be so human. Beware what you may discover, and be warned that discovering you aren't really one of us may come after you have done something that can't be taken back. Continue dancing but beware of where it may lead you. Remember, an angel is no more human than a demon."  - Annah Hutchings god of artists

Just so you know, we don't normally start a new thread with the picture YA gives us around here.

Turban. With a cobra tiara on it.
And the game plays on people's backs and they don't even have a clue about it, wasting their energy because their attention is distracted by the rulers' game itself.

I think he is sitting at the same place than previously, 'cause in the last page of chapter 230, you can see the skulls at his feet, if I'm not wrong.

Don't these details on his clothes look like the strange eye on the forefront of the elephant-man ?!?...
Maybe it's through the eye of the elephant-man that he was able to "see" the intruders in the castle.

A pity he does all this work for a character who is so ugly that you really don't want to look at him for too long.  :P

What Hague probably means with the eye thing is that it's a very common symbol in Kushan character design. Besides, if he saw them then you'd think he'd say "Ah, there's a guy on a horse, wearing a weird helmet and carrying a lance that can suddenly triple in size with a guy who has this a big-ass bow that shoots 5 big-ass arrows at a time in my city" rather than "I sense some inhuman ones".

Btw, I believe he's sitting on that multi-arms "statue" we saw on chap. 230. What you see behind his back is the upper waist and lower chest of the statue, if I'm not in mistake... It kinda looks like some statues of Shiva, with ornaments around the breasts. Looking at it carefully you should see what I mean. Besides, it really looks like he's sitting on the statue's crossed legs.

thank you for needlessly analyzing the obvious.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I never recognized that. Are you sure his lance grows up in size? I hope not cause this will be redicilous for me.

thank you for needlessly analyzing the obvious.
and since the preview is not, generally, out of page one, we can presume that the image is from half the book, and since the Kushan's chief was waiting some "guests" we could also presume that are those same vanquished "guests" (Griffith soldiers) that are looking up at him

or

he is ordering to his own soldiers to attack someone (maybe the selfsame Griffith Soldiers)

or
scolding to them because they have let escape Grifith' men

or
 
Who knows, lady Charlotte herself could be prone before him


P.s.

Why he is no longer shrouded by the fog?
