They haven’t made an appearance in the strip for a while so it’s understandable if you aren’t familiar with their characters, but that’s Xinda’s daughter, Akira, and husband, Ted, talking to jefbot in today’s strip! Here are some of their past exploits:
• JEFBOT.29_Bad Uncle
• JEFBOT.38_Parachutes
• JEFBOT.98_Chain Reaction

And although I’ve tried to “keep things real” over the course of this storyline, I must tell you that I had to tone down my sister’s “terms of endearment” for my niece and brother-in-law. When I asked her what her pet names were for them, her answers could not be shared in a “PG” comic. Or even a “PG-13” one. Heck, they’d even be pushing the boundaries of a hard “R.” Anyway, enjoy!
