I prefer he/him pronouns, does that make me male???? I love wearing skirts some days, does that make me female???? I am just a huge mishmash of every gender identity I’ve ever seen, and I want to tell people I’m nonbinary, but then they would use they/them pronouns for me which I Do Not Want????
With the shock revelation of a mysterious new clone on Flux
Buddies I have decided to join the fray and present my own theory on his
identity. Firstly I will examine all the
Duncan clones currently known to be wandering around the various servers,
before applying this to try and crack the Flux Buddy mystery.
At the moment there are most likely at least 5 separate
Duncan Clones in the various Minecraft series. Although it hard to be sure, I
have followed the connections where I can and made educated guesses based on
what has been said in various episodes to draw my conclusions. Here’s a brief summary of the Lalnas I have
been able to establish:
Fluxed Lalna: Worked with Kim from her
apprentice series, probably been kidnapped and replaced by his own clone.
Police Lalna: Works predominantly with Sjin, has
policed magic (and time) since their Chaosville series. Hostile to Flux
Main Channel Lalna: Worked with Lewis and Simon
on from ‘Jaffa Factory’ series to ‘Hole Diggers’, where he was clones. Presumed
dead in the explosion of the Dwarf Star. No knowledge of previous Lalnas.
Questing Lalna: Direct clone of Main Channel
Lalna, rescued by Lewis after ‘Hole Diggers’. Has worked on ‘Space Mine’, ‘Agarian
Skies’ and is now in ‘Blast Off’. No knowledge of Fluxed or Police Lalnas.
Lalnable Hector: Corrupted Lalna clone first
seen in Yoglabs, later used the ruined castle as a secret base. Potentially
also appeared in ‘Hypercubed. Hostile to Flux Buddies
Now, for the newest clone to appear there are several
possible options. We can quickly rule out the ‘Blast Off’ Duncan because he is
in theory not fluxed (and stranded in a nuclear apocalypse to boot) so he is
unlikely to make a fluxed appearance. He is also lacking motivation to abduct
Fluxed Duncan conceal his identity from Kim.
Next there is still a very slim possibility that this clone
is the original Fluxed one, just suffering a bout of amnesia such as Kim gets
after speaking to ‘mother’. Personally I doubt this as the pattern of flux on
his face has drastically changed, something that we have not seen before. Also,
we are told flux stains so there should still be some marks there as presumably
it would take a while to fade. His skin changes and lack of recognition for
most new series things as well as no memories of the HAT Films war lead me to
The Police Duncan is a slightly more viable option,
especially considering he has motive for deceiving Kim and knows she can make
poppets. His ability to travel through time also means he potentially has had the
chance to become fluxed. However we have been shown only two sources of
infection from flux: spending a long time in proximity to another fluxed player
and from coming into contact with the flux sphere at Duncan’s old castle.
Although it may be possible to become
fluxed from repeatedly receiving the status ailment whilst wandering in a
tainted biome Nilsey and Hannah did exactly this for the first two episodes of
‘Cat Island’ and received no permanent fluxing. Also, having worked with Sjin,
Police Duncan would have known that he was not involved in the war. This leads
me to doubt he is involved.
The next option is a new and unknown clone, potentially
created in Hole Diggers and somehow released into the new server. Once again, I
find it hard to believe that a clone has been able to become fluxed unless they
spent a significant time on the old server. However, it is possible that it
contracted flux from spending a long time spying on the original ‘Flux Buddies’.
This would explain the partial knowledge they have of panda labs including
Tiddles and death protection poppets, but not how to name robits and who the
war was against. Potential motive for this clone ‘replacing’ the true Fluxed
Duncan could be that it wanted to join Kim but could not do so without getting
rid of the original.
The final option is, of course, Lalnable Hector. As the most
consistently evil clone he will always be number one suspect for any abductions
and evil schemes, especially involving science and trickery. As we have not had
a confirmed view of him since his appearance in the Yoglabs Morph Mod episodes
we do not know for sure what he looks like now. It is possible that he was
contaminated by flux whilst staying in the ruins of the old castle with the
broken sphere- the effective source of the flux which tainted Kim. His lack of
contact with other players, signalled by his disappearance from Yogscast
Complete series, would explain his lack of knowledge about the Hat Films war as
well as giving him time to develop sufficient flux to replace Flux Duncan.
why would he do this? Kim and Duncan were the ones to ruin his plan to take
over the server by releasing his testificate test subjects, dismantling his big
reactor and then nuking the whole castle for good measure. He has had plenty of time to research into
them, spying on their base whilst waiting for an opportunity to take his
So that’s my bet for the identity of the new mystery fluxed
man. What do you guys think?
