3) Kelmomas is a skin spy. Yes, a construct actually born of Esmenet, but still a skin spy. In corroboartion of this I made a link between Kelmomas killing Sharacinth and Maithanet consequently saying this might well have been the work of a skin spy. Maithanet never says things lightly, and usually he is correct. This is not proof of course that Kelmomas is a new sort of skin spy, but he might be.

The mechanics of the Consult getting Kellhus and Esmenet to conceive and deliver skin spy reminds me of John Varley's classic Titan series of novels, which I read a long time ago. In Titan a heavenly body (i.e. a large, animate satellite, which may also have been a god, and on which lived several genetically engineered races) managed to conceal a spy in the actual body of the female protagonist (she was an astronaut who was leading a bloody rebellion against the heavenly body; the pint size spy was also male, which gave the female rebel some concern).

Anyway, the idea of Kelmomas as a skin spy or Consult artefact is a bit far-fetched. Kelmomas is clearly a sociopath (even given the standards of the Three Seas), and it is quite arguable that the voice he hears is part of his disorder. view post
