Hi,

1. ジニーの頬にはいく筋も長い引っ掻き傷があり、・・・

What is いく筋? Is いく = 行く? What sense of 筋?

2. 「だけど、何てったって一番はジニーだな」

What is 何てったって? 

3. 「それで、ケンタウルスは、あなたたちを放っていちゃったの?」

Is 放っていちゃった = 放っていてしまった? If so, why 放っていて and not just 放って?

4. 「それに、ハグリッドが、あれは乗り手の探している場所をみつけるのがとってもうまいって、そう言ってるもン」

In the book, the final ン seems to be a small ン, but I don't know how to type that (other than actually changing the font size, of course).

Why is ン in katakana, and why is it small? What is the writer conveying by this?

1.幾 , same as you know from いくら and いくつ.
幾筋 a number of lines.
筋 is used as a counter word

2. 何と言ったって would be my guess and is something like "no matter what you say" or some such similarly phrased expression of negating the other person's statement or line of reasoning.

4. My guess is that it is a stylistic choice and merely indicates the voice trailing off. I have no idea how to shrink the character either.

It's a typo of 放っていっちゃった(=放って行ってしまった).

もン is used repeatedly at the end of Luna's words, so it would show her unique/characteristic ways of speaking.

Sorry, this was my misreading, though I don't think I would have understood it anyway.
