While rarely the recommended strategy to avoid social scenes, being dead is often fairly effective at getting out of social gatherings.

Except your own funeral. Its considered a faux pas to miss that if you are dead.

Billy actually looks concerned in the third or fourth frame, but quickly attempts to cover it. It's kind of sad that he feels he must cover his vulnerability. He's squarely in the "Jerk With a Heart of Gold" category- even shows up as an example. Don't worry, Billy, I won't tell.

@burningtyger: He has room to be a Jerk With a Heart of Jerk yet!

The fact that Curio's defense mechanism is collapsing in death makes me think that before he became a mage, Curio would faint whenever he was stressed.

@Jeana Star: When sufficiently stressed, quite likely. Like fainting, thanatopsis can be an involuntary reaction to perceived threats; it's almost like he's under attack. And first edition DOES say "Suppress Own Life" can be cast reflexively.... He'll likely look rather pale upon recovery, though, at least for a short while.
