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

Cnaiur is certainly insane, perhaps criminally so, but we never see him as "evil," as we do the Consult. Cnaiur is as a victim of manipulation and mental illness. He's not making the sort of conscious decisions to wipe out entire races that the Inchoroi are. I agree that he's scary and I wouldn't want to meet him, but I still always sympathize with him, whereas I love to hate the Inchoroi and Consult.

Interestingly, I think the Skin-Spies come off as somewhat sympathetic in their conversations with Cnaiur. They seem to have no real understanding of what they are or anything they do, and to have a strange resentment toward their creators. You sort of have to pity them. They're almost like programmed robots with only the barest flicker of consciousness, and absolutely no volition. view post
