Was Cnauir gay? posted 25 June 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtWas Cnauir gay? by Nerdanel, Peralogue

Cnaiür was gay, gay, gay and in total denial about it. I think Moënghus probably chose him because he was gay and therefore easier to turn against the customs of the People.

I think he liked to have sex in ways that allowed him to imagine he was having sex with a man, and that's why there were no children.
