The Prologue posted 06 Jul 2006, 20:07 by dharok, Commoner

I have started to re-read the three books from the series that are currently available, and I am ashamed to admit that I remember little of the Prologue from TDTCB. What I am wondering about is with regards to the mounted rider who ends up fighting with Kellhus as he is running from the sranc. When Kellhus escapes the fight, he is threatened- by the rider whom he assumes is a nonman- that he will not be forgotten. Makes me wonder . . . IMO, this has not yet become significant, or am I missing something really obvious? Also, the identity of the rider is really up for question. Ideas? view post

dharok the nonmans identity is Mekertrig. He is the same nonman that nailed seswatha to the wall. view post

Scott confirmed it somewhere on the board, I also believe there is evidence of this in the books though I could not say for sure where. view post

The bit about the Nonman having actual faces sewn on his cloak threw me off for a while. I naturally linked this to the "de-facing," if you will, of poor Geshrunni. So I thought those hunting down the spies of various schools must be Nonman, that it's their habit to collect human faces. :roll: view post

Don't feel bad Dharok, I asked that same question a long time ago. It's only on the board. It's also unclear from reading the books that Non-Men are victims of amnesia [long term anmesia anyway]; you don't really find it solidly said and explained in the books until TTT's glossary. Regarding face snatching, I initially figured that it had something to do with the Tekne's ability to create skin-spies but Mekeretrig's cape makes that inaccurate I guess. view post
