Whoa wow! The chains pulling the lion down work very well for pulling the soul back into the body! (also I know I probably shouldn't feel sorry for the guys who murdered all those goblins but that one blue guy seems to genuinely like Chester and oh man that last panel Ches don't do something you'll regret)
Gee, you'd think they haven't transformed people into bloodthirsty monsters before. If everyone who goes through this also has a murderous rampage, i think there might be a logistical problem. Is having one monster worth losing a group of soldiers? Hm, it seems that EVERYONE in this world speaks human as their first language. I guess the whole war/traitor thingy isn't about them, then. Good. Humans are boring.
