Dunyain machinations posted 22 March 2009 in The Judging EyeDunyain machinations by Landrew, Candidate

didn't read all the posts here but the issue with Moenghus was that he was disturbing their internal quest. Moenghus was imposing something which they could not control which is anathema to the Dunyain. It polluted the recipients in a sense. They probably sent Kellus as much to kill Moenghus as to ensure Moenghus would cease his interruptions. No doubt they knew there was a risk that Kellus would return to them 'sullied' by the world as Moenghus had before. That possibility would have emerged in their reasonings as to how to respond to Moenghus. But at the end of the day, there would have been no perfect solution.

The Dunyain fled to Ishual in order, as we read in the prologue (i think) to the first book, to escape the world and pursue their own internal perfection in isolation. We haven't seen anything yet (in my opinion) which suggests they've changed their original objectives. Indeed Kellus' mission was established to preserve the status quo. view post
