Um, I based that statement off of the entry in the book:

"But Kellhus's Wards were failing, cracked and shattered by tempests of unholy light. No more Gnostic lines glittered out to assail the hanging Cishaurim. And Proyas realized that Kellhus could not win, that he could only cry out Wards lest he be swept away. That it was only a matter of time."

Hadn't Kellhus had to ability to teleport, he'd have died then and there. You could have sixteen inutterals and sixteen more utterals if you wanted, it wouldn't do you any good against the Indara-Kishauri. Their craft isn't based no cognition, it's based on an empathic awareness and relationship with the Outside/God. The greater the relationship, the more powerful the soul. That's why I was so moved by the Cishaurim, theirs is a power that goes beyond mere sorcery. I don't know what you would call them, but it's clear that they were more. RIP Waterbearers. <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: --> view post
