...guess we get to see what tainted Kel'noz looks like.


Well...tainting isn't always a guarantee. Ariel took a demon to the face during her fight with Kalki and remains untainted, yet Kau took one to the gut and was. Hard to say if it's some sort of innate resistance, or just an inconsistency?

Is that Ariel's puppy, I thought Chakiri killed that one.


Eh - might be severely wounded, much like Kel is, but not dead apparently. Wolves are resilient creatures, after all. On top of that, the Rampaging Dire Wolf of Doom looks to be a metaphor/symbol for Ariel's overall clan relationship at this point - killing it would probably mean that the clan as a whole is dead. When it was a puppy, in earlier chapters, her rep was solid, friendly and amiable with the clan. After the timeskip, after years of absence, it attacked her not even recognizing her as a comrade - sort of symbolic to how the clan felt about her now. And now, where she reaches out to try to calm and befriend it, and it sort of tentatively reacts positively...symbolic of her having to try to reach out to restore that lost bond with her clan. That pupper's got as much plot armor as the main characters do, if only for that probably :)

What happened to Itansha? The head of Maeyukir? Did she die too or did she defect to the Duters or something?



Yes.


Agree with Thrair - they escaped the Sarghress implosion and found a purpose with the Dutan'vir, which if I read right was intended to be only til the leadership squabbles died down. After losing Koil and Rosof and the rest of the clan going rabid, I don't blame Itansha one bit for saying "Screw it, we're staying here permanently." Most of them were former Dutan'vir anyway, so to them, it's not necessarily defecting as much as going home where they belong.

I can see him trying to intimidate Ariel into being a mere figurehead. He probably will be one of the guys she will have to beat to a pulp -or even kill -in front of the whole army in order to achieve effective leadership.


Whether it's Ariel who does so, or one of her allies, I look forward to the beat down either way.

Mablevi was not figured among the "leaders", and he keeps rather close. I also don't think he's so awful as yet, for he could have gutted Kel'noz like a fish as quickly as sucker-punch him, but he didn't.

Now Daxia is another matter, and she certainly isn't alone.

Everyone is lucky that Ariel is such an uncommon Drow. Otherwise, with her High Sorcery, she would be a nightmare. A shapeshifter that can absorb any other flesh into her being, and manipulate flesh on others. One touch and she could make your limbs fall off. She could absorb a drow or two and dwarf Quain.

What I want to know is Koil's story and how she was killed.

I have a few guesses, but those might be better explained in daydream :P

I feel Kor underestimates his leadership potential. I mean sure, as a male, he's had to hear that males weren't suited for leadership and based on what I've what I've seen of him, he certainly is not fit for high-level leadership but he certainly has some notable leadership traits that could potentially serve him well in an intermediate level position or advisory role.

Kor'maril is an officer, and it would seem a good one.

That said, the Sarghress Ill'haress must provide a raison d'etre for the Clan. Kor is being realistic, that he doesn't have that vision to give purpose to the Clan.

Hence me saying he'd make a better advisor or other intermediate position. They're still leadership roles, and good and necessary ones at that, but it just not ones who have the ultimate say in positions, especially ones he is weak in.
