Why are Kellhus and Moenghus of the Few? posted 19 May 2006 in Author Q & AWhy are Kellhus and Moenghus of the Few? by Curethan, Didact

The why of Kellhus and Moenghus being of the few is very interesting - I'm pretty sure Celomomas wasn't of the few - but he did make that prophecy about Kellhus, and during K & M's discourse at the end of TTT Kellhus makes the point during his internal musings that if prophecy is real, then the precepts of the Dunyain are erroneous.

"Prophecy could not be. If the ends of things governed their beginnings, if what came after determined what came before, then how could he have dominated the souls of so many? And how could the Thousandfold Thought have come to rule the Three Seas?"

If the prophecy is true, then Kellhus and Moenghus are merely pawns of the Thousandfold Thought and, by extension, it's progenitor in the future. Which would kind of explain why they are of the few - it's all part of the prophecy, man. (Hope not, prophecy is a hackneyed old beast in the genre)

Or they're just of the few because of the reincarnation theory that Kellhus espouses to Akka. view post
