LOL i almost choked of laughing so much on this chapter Yeon is just to much , she was hilarious and i'm so glad to see how good everyone understands each other now . Baam looks finally how he did in the past at least his behavior
Also can't believe Mazino showed up Is that a fake one or the real deal? , that was my 1st thought . And the flower was there , they are just so careless
1. The flower indeed seems to be Yeon family's symbol. What is more, the blue stones/gems in the middle of the flower is most probably the gem stone that's offered to the scout by Koon.
My theory is when Koon's main team reached 21F, their opponent also forfeited (knowing they'll face Androssi, Anak etc.). Hence, they've faced the very same test and Koon kept one of the stones of the flower. The opposition's forfeit may have given the idea of splitting the team in two.
2. I'm 101% sure that (yes, I majored in math) he is not Urek Mazino. I think that person is a junior member of the Wing Tree at best. Since we haven't even see a Wing Tree pin on him, a tattoo doesn't prove that he is a actually member (yet Urek Mazino himself). We know very little about Urek Mazino and I think he's a very competitive person. The new guy might have gone up to 77th floor and ask Urek Mazino for a duel. The tattoo was probably the wager
You think Urek Mazino would allow copycats? More when He was looking for the guy who did the ranks to just demand being ranked above him.
I think this guy IS Mazino.
Well a lot of people over at batoto think it might only be some kind of hardcore fan but it's hard to say at this point, could be both. Personally I think it might be a bit early for Urek but on the other hand I totally wouldn't mind if it's him. With FUG, Wing Tree, Zahard faction and the different groups it starts to feel like a really huge world with lots of intertwining plots.
And I'm loving it
The name is mazino, it might be a different mazino than Urek. And it's weird for someone to tatoo his own name, so he might be someone who got strong feelings for Urek Mazino, that's all.
Mazino could be the nickname He got.
My bets are that it's actually him.
What Koon has is suspendium, which is the super rare material used in the tower to allow things to easily float in shinsoo.
Yeon's family mark has fewer leaves, and the leaves have the inside cut out. Also the blue dots are more spread around instead of concentrated in the center. It's possible the symbol is based on Jigena's flower though.
I have no position either way on it being Urek, but SIU did say in the last afterword, "Honestly this test is nothing but ground bait for the next arc. I think you're feeling the scale grow bigger and bigger."
Here's what it really could be. The best suspendium comes from inside giant creatures like this. We're never actually told where it comes from, just that high level suspendium is quite rare.
Just started reading this yesterday and I finished it earlier and I am so happy I found it. THIS SHIT RULES!!! I have to say gator is one of my favorite characters I wish he was around . I am a little skeptical this is the real Mazino. I am hooked on this story
Hopefully, with long hair.
Though I suppose it would be a funny thing for SIU to troll fans on, build audiences anticipation up only to let them down. I mean, if that guy isn't Urek Mazino it's going to be hard not to feel a little disappointed about it; which would be a brutal introduction for a new character.

I think it would be awesome if he is really mazino. but i think it would be awesome, more because i like his character introduction until now ( kinda dumb, sleeping there, with his name on his back), less that it really is mazino. So even if he isn´t mazino, i started to like him already and if it isn´t mazino, i sure hope mazino is also a (yet) funny guy like him, doing random stuff like sleeping in a monster on F21.
Ringmaster SIU: "Introducing the amazing Mazino!"
Audience: *a deafening roar of cheers and applause*
Mazino: "Hey, everybody my name's Paul Mazino from New Jersey and I like to sleep in random giant fish/cows."
It's hard for me to imagine that SIU would want to invoke that reaction.
