SIU did previously call Baam a "genius" both in one of his afterwords and when Ren called him because Baam had mastered one room after just two weeks. However, SIU went on to say that while Baam's talent might be unique, it's not unparalleled, implying that we will eventually see regulars on his level or above.
I'm jumping on the Baam is not a living ignition weapon bandwagon. After reading the chapter, Baam also paid attention to Horyang's backstory. I got the impression that he too, experienced the same fate as Horyang.
And I wouldn't exclude the idea of FUG implanting a 'devil' inside of Viole to further increase their chances of accomplishing their goal. The way, I see it especially, after re-reading the FUG arc, they most likely did it. These guys, don't see Baam as a human being to them, he is a weapon. Once Agero finds out, what these guys did to his best friend... shit will get real.
Anyone else think that Sophia might the lady that was in the bath tub?
Pretty good chap, without a doubt.
What really caught my attention was Horyang mentioning "The true master of the Tower" when he saw Headon. He initiated the whole deal with Rachel so you really have to wonder if he is the puppeteer behind all/a lot of the things going on in the tower. I would go as far as question if Zahard is the real ruler of the Tower? I wouldn't be surprised if Headon just wants to stay in the shadows but in reality is pulling all the strings.
It seems like he can travel the whole tower+ he decides who's chosen to climb the tower. That alone gives him an incredible amount of power, without even mentioning the allies and possible allies he has.
I think it's not farfetched to say that Headon has his own plans and is planning something big. All of that will probably be revelead waaay later but I could actually see him being the real mastermind behind all of this.
Well, NN, it has been hinted since the beginning that Headon held a huge amount of power in the Tower. He decides who's allowed to climb the Tower, but more than that, he specifically deals with the irregulars, figures who have drastically changed the Tower in their time.
Review for 121 & 122 is out (here is a link for any who are interested)
The poll is on how much you care about Horyang's story.
I'm sure Headon is the biggest master planner and FUG are just pawns in the palm of his hand. That's sort of foreshadowed by all that smirking in the starting chapters, plus he sure didn't manipulate Rachel out of boredom.
I just thought of a theory. We know Horyang has the right arm and Cassano has the left arm. That means they didn't get the whole body but it doesn't mean they each got an entire half of it.
I think Viole might have the body and they have the arms. Even though the shinsoo is red inside of Viole that could be the effect on it from being in an Irregulars body( Shinsoo all around Enryu turns red). Also this "lobster" looks alot like a ribcage to me.
^ if that is true ^-Another theory that is connected is that this creature is the 43rd floor guardian, I've always thought it might not be dead and just somehow restrained for defying Zahard or something. That might explain Headon saving Horyang, which you KNOW has meaning.
Interesting thought. I can see snips of that being true in some way.

Ok so here is my attempt. Please enjoy!
The Company's scan is out. http://www.batoto.net/read/_/146441/...by_the-company
A cute dog at the top and a better tl of the afterword are the primary highlights. It would appear that even if Baam's lobster turns out to be an ignition weapon, it's not a Thirteen Month series weapon, although we will seemingly see more of the Thirteen Month series later on, which is a positive.
