So I was reading some chapters when I across this page of chapter 263:
Who is the creep beside Obra? Is he important in this arc? Will we get to see him in the next chapters? Am I giving him a lot of unnecessary attention? Am I just noticing him now because I have nothing else to do?
The answer to that - I don't know, but I hope so. Honestly, he doesn't seem interesting or strong or powerful, but having Mashima put him there in that page may well enough say that he is of some value. So I hope to see him in this arc, possibly as a reserved member or something.
