The Destruction of the Dunyain posted 14 April 2005 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Destruction of the Dunyain by White Lord, Subdidact

I don't think the Dunyain will be destroyed outright, nor do I think you should view them only in a negative light. They are misguided, but by their very nature things can be explained to them, and I don't see Kellhus or anyone else throwing them away. Also from things Scott has said, I think we can expect great things from the Dunyain.

We know from the ending of TWP that the Consult are searching for the Dunyain. They will probably be found. They will probably be flushed out of Ishual with sorcery, because otherwise a few thousand Dunyain are invincible, (remember the prologue of tDtCB and the Dunyain erasing sorcerous runes from the walls of Ishual - probably Wards against sorcery.) But you have to consider the location of Ishual itself: right next door to Injor-Niyas. If the Consult use sorcery there, the Nonmen Quya will be involved, and I predict the Nonmen and Dunyain will link up at some point.

As to what could happen next, there's too little data to be sure . . . but for me the Dunyain are on the side of the good guys, if you can call anyone 'good' in these books. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
