Inchoroi, Souls, the Outside [TTT Spoilers] posted 28 Feb 2006, 15:02 in Author Q & AInchoroi, Souls, the Outside [TTT Spoilers] by Big Jim Dwyer, Commoner

Hi, Scott, If my question has already been asked, please ignore it. I found your explanation of the Consult's motivation extremely elegant, a nice twist on the perennial problem of explaining evil overlords; however, I can't quite make it all add up. My problem lies with the Inchoroi's origin (i.e. from another planet). Were they always damned? Or were they damned only upon entering Earwa? I am not too fond of the only options I can think of. If the Inchoroi were always damned, then their mission would be to wipe out all "souled" life in the universe--a bit of a tall order. If, however, damnation only occurred when the Inchoroi landed on Earwa, then there is physical dimension of some kind to the Outside, which seems to go against Kellhus' "Here speech" (unless he's just pulling yet another fast one on Achamian) and would diminish the power of the Outside (at least in my opinion). If I am being particularly obtuse please forgive me; or, if the answers would contain spoilers, I understand perfectly. That you even answer some of these questions is above and beyond the call of duty. Big Jim Dwyer view post

The issue raised here is much deeper than Cnaiur's lack of love as a child. Think about the statement again: "They make us love them." The important word here is make. Is there anything more horrific? First Cnaiur, and then Achamian, and then Esmenet realize that they mean exactly nothing to the Moenghus (Cnaiur) or Kellhus (Achamian and Esmenet), but they still can't stop loving them. No matter how hard they try the three of them are forever attached to their Dunyain (if Cnaiur is still alive that is). What we have here is yet another similarity between Dunyain and the Consult. Both [b:vk9jp1kb]make[/b:vk9jp1kb] others love them.

Thanks for answering (or not answering), Scott. Although frustrating, your response is probably the best in terms of enjoying your created world. Earwa is too realistic to have pat answers. Middle-Earth certainly became less mysterious when you can explain most things with: "He's a Maia." Big Jim Dwyer view post
