Matt, just curious -- since you made the description of her characteristics more certain in tone, I'm wondering if you have found additional information about what that stuff on her head is? I could never tell what it is myself. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 10:00, 14 September 2007 (CDT)

I don't want to be arrogant about this, but to me it is visually obvious that it is not hair. Beyond that, I simply counted how many spikes there are on the crest. If it was hair, it would have to be the exact same color as her skin, which is unlikely, and there is no line on her head where the skin ends and the hair starts. I went through a lot of pics of Boudicca before changing this. The fact that there are always six distinct spikes to the crest backs it up. It's not like with Demona's spikey hair where the number is always changing due to the nature of hair. --Matt, 14 September 2007
Eh, to me it's really obvious that those are horns and not ears. Where are the ear openings? But I think since we disagree about this, maybe we should ask Greg when the queue opens. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 13:17, 14 September 2007 (CDT)
The ears are something totally else. I think the ears are even more obvious, sorry. Look at Bronx for a guide. He's got his brow ridges with small horns, no cheek horns. Boudicca has brow ridges without horns, but horns on her cheeks. Okay, I think we agree here so far. Now behind their brows are their ears. Notice that both of their ears have a solid part that supports the ear. This is the same color as their topsides, this solid part supports the ear lobe which, while a different shape in Bronx and Boudicca, has one big similarity: It is the color of their undersides. Now behind the ears, Bronx has nothing, but Boudicca sports a six horn spiked crest thingie. *shrugs* --Matt, 14 September 2007
Those same narrow things I think are horns? I can definitely see now how they could be interpreted as ears instead, yes. I still think the stuff behind is too thick to be horns. My feeling is that if it is uncertain, then the entry should reflect that it is uncertain, instead of only supporting one opinion. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 18:24, 14 September 2007 (CDT)
No offense Vaevictis, but what your basically saying is the equivalent of "that thing behind Ophelia's brow horns is too big to be horns, so it might be hair." Whatever it is on Boudicca, it isn't hair. It is clearly made up of six thick spikes forming a crest. A CREST. And I'm not interpreting those things as ears, they ARE ears. If we are going to question everything in this series that hasn't been blatantly stated then we may as well give up on the GargWiki. We don't know for certain that Demona's "hair" is hair, it might be feathers, so lets change her entry to reflect that uncertainty. Please. I think it's 98% likely that Boudicca's ears are ears and that her crest is a six-pointed crest. Nothing else makes much sense. --Matt, 14 September 2007
