Anasurimbors as high councillors posted 04 August 2005 in Author Q & AAnasurimbors as high councillors by White Lord, Subdidact

Yes, but why would they want to be counselors to anyone?

First of all, they don't care much for the world, (or at least that is the initial impression for them both, which may well have changed for Moenghus, or is about to for Kellhus), and in any event they are descended from kings, and have the means to regain their birthright, so why shouldn't they go for that?

You may also be underestimating the degree of predestination that may be woven in the world, so if the Anasurimbor are "destined" to retake the role of Celmomas, as the leaders of Men in the Apocalypse, to do anything else might be impossible.

Remember that Scott has said somewhere of Kellhus that he is a meaningless character trying to conserve his meaninglessness in a world deep with meaning (or words to that effect). So I wonder what is "meant" for Kellhus, and if he'll be able to use the vaunted Dunyain abilities for much . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
