Skaeos...huh? posted 30 October 2007 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeSkaeos...huh? by bobby, Commoner

One thing I did catch from reading this chapter again last night, is that Kellhus and Skaeos were "innocently" scrutinizing each other, and one of them nodded when they realized this was going on. The Emperor saw all of this and "whirled" (?) around to look at Skaeos. As if he was thinking, "WTF?"

So then later in the chapter, Kellhus dissects the whole issue at hand, effectively showing that neither Conphas or Cnaiur are an obvious moral choice for leading the Holy War. With Conphas no longer as crucial, and the order from the Shriah, the Emperor can't force anyone to sign the Indenture. Perhaps the emperor assumed that the look and nod Skaeos and Kellhus gave each other were signs of a conspiracy. That still seems like slim evidence by which you can send someone down to the torture chamber. But he's the emperor and can do whatever he wants with his subjects... view post
