Regarding the prophecy, it is true that there are 2 Anasurimbors in the three seas; in a few months there will be a third, Esmenet's child; for all we know he is the Anasurimbor referred to in the prophecy if indeed the prophecy is valid. Esmenet's child will necessarily be "world born", but with Kellhus and Esmenet (and Achamian?) as his teachers, he might surpass both father and grandfather (and why do I assume that Esmenet's child will be a he?)[/quote:eqxakq9y]

I've thought about the Celmomian Prophecy a lot and I've come to a few conclusions.

First of all, I think we can consider Kellhus to really be the Harbinger. In order for him to be the Harbinger he has to be known as an Anasurimbor, and since Moenghus has done his best not to be identified as one, it's safe to assume the role of Harbinger is Kellhus's. After all he did warn the people who count (more or less) about what's about to happen, and with time to spare...

Now we come to the second consideration. Kellhus's son (I also think it'll be a son, and his name will be Celmomas <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->). Somewhere in TWP Kellhus thinks about the Consult, the Apocalypse and mortality. He concludes that the only way to beat time and death is through sons. So I think the person Celmomas talks about in the prophecy could be (in part) Kellhus's son.

If we reckon the Apocalypse will start some twenty years after the conclusion of PoN, and that it will last long enough for Kellhus to grow old or die <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->, (unless he becomes an immortal god in the meantime <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->) the only person who can reasonably live to gain victory over the Consult is Kellhus's son.

Just a few thoughts... looking forward to comments! view post
