...his preternatural reflexes enabled him to grasp a chorae bolt (i.e. the pointy end not but not the trinket end) but he (and Moenghus) are clearly susceptible to them. I grant that in 20 years Kellhus may unravel the Aporos but that remains to be seen.[/quote:c68u4xwx]

Oh that's what it is? I feel pretty stupid now. <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->

Yet... This is effectively the same thing, isn't it? There are only two ways to deliver a Chorae: either shoot it from a distance, or up close by treachery/ambush (e.g. Geshrunni vis-a-vis Akka). You can't reach him with an arrow. And up close ambush is useless since he can see through your intention right away.

And it probably won't take him 20 years. After all in just a few weeks he has already done what even the Quya couldn't do -- a three string Cant. I mean, seriously, I almost feel sorry for the Consult for having to go up against an enemy like this. By the time the next book opens, he will be all but indistinguishable from a God, at least insofar as sorcery is concerned.

Another misc point I forgot to bring up in the first post: what's the relationship between Kellhus and Maithanet like now? Kellhus, after all, did kill Maithanet's father. view post
