A moment of silence ...
... and then a word on the composition of the expedition: at this point you might be wondering who even is still alive at this moment (i.e. who do these shilouettes in the background belong to?)
The thing is, you obviously know all of the main cast and supporting cast who is in the jungle (Kat, Shara, Pesh, Book etc.), and I also made a point of introducing all of the expedition guards (mainly to make page 414 have more impact). Who I didn't introduce everyone of is the "civilian" helpers and laborers - we know the professors, and we know Frederick as one of the wagon drivers, but there were several more (and you could see some unnamed extras here and there throughout the chapter).
The reason I did it that way ... well, I basically didn't want to think about it too much and wanted the ability to throw in unnamed extras in the background here and there ;)
