Kellhus, his divinity, and his "good guy" status. posted 02 March 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtKellhus, his divinity, and his "good guy" status. by Diem Kaye, Candidate

I hope Kellhus turns out to be a bad guy, just for one simple reason.

Right now, he's way too powerful. He's mastered the Gnosis, has the entire Three Seas under his command, and looks like he will only get stronger over the next twenty years.

Now when you have a character that is that powerful, it's hard to write challenges for him that the reader will find interesting. This is why I'm also hoping that Acha becomes the protagonist of the story.

He's flawed. He's human. We can understand him. We can see Acha fighting against the Second Apocalypse, see him doing his best, and still managing to fail. There's an actual challenge there.

Kellhus? Not so much. I mean, he's probably one of the few characters that can go through a public execution ceremony and the whole time you're reading, you're just thinking, "Now how will he get out of this one?" view post
