It’s not surprising that Feryl is doing so well with her magic act. After all, she was raised in that field from birth, and even though her father retired from it she’s still a part of the milieu. It’s not unusual to continue a family business from one generation to the next.

No, the big revelation is Palmtop. In either human or cat form she’s stood outside of the world at large, making snarky comments yet not fully engaged with others (except for her partner, Frisky the cat, who passed away about a decade ago).
