I'm still not convinced about the magnitude of the abberration. The Consult has a good reason to not teach the skin-spies the Gnosis: they would be Marked. So if the skin-spy was to take over a non-sorceror position, he would have to not know the Gnosis or else it would be easy for any Sorceror to notice the infiltration.

For example the skin-spy that takes over Skeas (sp? the emporer's advisor in TDTCB) would have to not know the Gnosis or the Imperial Saik would sniff it out immediately.

While I'm not sure that I believe it myself, I think that we cannot rule out the possibility that all skin spies have souls. It helps explain how they can see Chigra. And then the proportion of skin-spies that can learn sorcery might be the same as the proportion of humans that are among the few (admittedly still a small number). view post
