the girl looks like Rachel.
I wouldn't say Xiaxia is Headon disguised. If he can transform, he can also transform the ears, I guess - and if he can't, then I'm sure he has trustworthy ppl (like Akryung) that could do the dirty work for him. Plus, there are many weird animal-like races in the Tower, so bunny ears are no miracle...
Rachel is the prototype bitch in this series, that's why
Awesome chapter! For some reason, I think that Xia Xia might be involved with FUG (Poken). By assuming what the assassin said is true, he particularly "targeted" Agero. Which would also makes sense, if FUG put a bounty on him. I'll rather wait for the company's translation in order to confirm it.
Chapter is out on mangareader at least.
So it looks like Cassano owns Novic and Ran without much trouble. And he looks angry for some reason. There is someone who wants to see Koon dead. Someone very rich (probably one of the 10 families?) and Baam is on his way with a hired gun Lightbearer as his shadow. Nice! What I think will happen now is: Cassano wants to finish those two off, and Horyang tries to stop him. They release their arms on each other and Baam is there just in time to prevent an all out battle, Koon finds out who send the Assassin or at least gets a big hint (SIU style)... On another note: Its interesting to hear that Koon seems to not know where his high class items come from, he just supposes that it is his father who gives them to him...

My deductions (please correct me if you think I'm wrong):
- snake guy that got killed by Koon has told us that a girl with rabbit ears hired him
- somebody is really good with hacking into another's light house --> good "light bearer"
- on the last pannel of this chapter there is hinted that light bearer XiaXia has rabbit ears
- Karaka wants to kill "ALL"(Baam/Viole and his friends), hinted from when Karaka was speaking with Poken
- if you remember a little while back when Karaka was speaking with Poken, at that time Poken's shadow could have actually been "a girl's hair(a little messy but still)" along with rabbit ears --> all previous points put together indicates that Poken might be XiaXia
- SIU's last afterword gave us a hint that this arc will soon end, and that we will probably know into which direction everything is going --> I believe we will see in the next or next few chapters how everything will affect the Workshop battle
My short prediction:
I see Cassano as a stong guy who was looking for Ilmar, but the only hint he was able to find was that Ilmar was forced to joined FUG, later he even found out that Ilmar changed his name to Horyang, what was everything to some degree true, excluding the fact that Ilmar was "forced" to join FUG. In the end Cassano may actualy be the victim(the one who dies) here.

The only other person who we know for certain has bunny ears is Headon, so could Xia be related to Headon? Maybe from the same species? Or maybe she is a product of experiments. If they were trying to create a living ignition weapon, then it's not a stretch to think that they may have been trying to create other things too, maybe a Headon clone.
Another crazy theory is that it could be Rachel, that if we're taking the ability to transform into account. Her abilities as a light bearer were top knotch in S1, and after hearing Koon's plans, it would be in her favour if Koon was killed. Maybe she isn't as stupid as many think.
I agree with some of the comments, that girl gives a "FUG kind of feeling". I think that her decision to help Viole (even if she made him pay for it) is suspicious enough to make us believe that she might be involved with FUG. My prediction is that Viole arrive at the battle and cassano is really hurt by Ran´s shinsoo strike. Good guy Bear will try to protect his old friend making Viole attack Koon´s team. I´m not sure but i got the feeling that Viole and Koon will meet in this arc. I just hope for them to meet without the red girl getting in the way.
In other words, that doesn't mean anything. The shadow could be a red herring, but it could also be a serious hint (seems SIU likes those a lot).
To me personally, the shadow really resembles a bunny, now that I look at it. Wow!
I'm surprised how the fact that SIU totally trolled us with positions of Ran and Novick fades in the discussion. Long live the king of trolls!
I guess it could be another servant but chances are that it's Poken,
The mangapirate translation is out, but it isn't much too different from what has already been released : http://mangapirate.net/Tower_of_God/127/1
