Quote: "Ikiru":1u1utkho
EE has it right - a character can be on the side of good without being a "good guy," per se. In the same way, Cnaiur spends most of TTT allied with the evil skin-spies, but he's certainly not a "bad guy."

Scott doesn't really do good guys, anyway. Most authors paint in shades of black and white; Erikson and Martin paint in shades of gray; Scott paints in shades of gray AND black. It's either semi-good or pure evil in this series.[/quote:1u1utkho]

Ikiru, I think CnaiĆ¼r is a psychopath, at whom I wouldn't look at sideways, let alone walk on the same side of the street. Mind you I agree that it's a strength of the novels that sometimes we see him, rapist, wife beater, and pervert, in a sympathetic light. view post
