That's not all the images - there's a stylised Goddess image
at the top of the page of Geisterdamen history, and in the
chapel there are figures which are either Goddess images
or, I guess, saints.
Hair colour seems to be highly variable in Girl Genius ;-)
But the picture where Lucrezia's face /isn't/ wider than
high stands out as different...
And it could be a different body and still Lucrezia...

It's been a long time for the Geisterdamen - I think
it is generations - but I think time technology is
involved. For instance, if Lucrezia has access to
another world, either artificial or natural, where
time runs at a different rate - and she also commands
them to develop her designs; they don't have Spark
but they can work things out the slow way. Or if
she's using a time machine - and there have been
those manifestations of apparent time machinery.
I'm also taking time travel as an explanation of
The Other's prophecies, which run up to the time
of Lucrezia's capture. Suppose she escapes again,
uses the time machine (wherever it is) to pass
messages back to her previous self, and then carries
on with the plot in her present day.
I wonder if she's already changed history... maybe
in an original "time line" the Geisterdamen were
wiped out as she was captured, but thanks to her
"prophecies" enough of them survived to be a
For that matter, maybe the time window is the
only way she visited Geisterdamen history before
her own lifetime, and she gave them the holy
blueprints for her war machines a thousand years
in the past.
Given the electricity that you get off a time window,
they probably also make nifty assassination weapons.
Tune in to someone you don't like in the past, and
