You speak of introspection and development, but I still feel that Kellhus' inner world is just far too opaque for us to understand. He evidently had undergone some transformations, but exactly what, we don't really know. In any event, are there really "hundreds" of characters like this in fantasy novels? I admit I haven't read many, and the only two (other than Prince of Nothing) that I've read more than once and in any depth are LOTR and George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, and there certainly are no such characters in them. It's my impression that authors usually shy away from creating such "Ubermensch" because readers cannot relate to them at all. view post
