Nonmen do not have hair.  Meppa does.

EDIT [Madness]: Changed thread title.

Touche, but Nonmen also do not have nut brown skin.

@ Curethan - Maybe a myth about Cujara coming back like King Arthur?

You know what's weird--just as there are no creation myths in Earwa, there are no apocalypse narratives aside from the Consult.  I don't know if it's normal, but I had assumed that cultures developed those kinds of things so that the nonmen and humans should have them before the Inchoroi arrive.  Something from the Tusk that will be revealed in TUC?

@ Triskele - Fine!  He is no nonman!  Hairy and nut brown skin and such a delicious mystery!!!

Lmao. All class around here :).

+1 - Must be a thing; even a simple Ex-Nihilo creation myth for the Inrithi or Fanim - though to be honest, I still think we're going to get a more depthful gauge of Fanim Culture pre/post-destruction by the Holy War and that that story might yet reveal a very complicated belief system.

Perhaps Meppa is to the Cishaurim what Saccarees is to the Mandate?

Sooooo, a tool risen up by Kellhus to complete some obscure end?
I'd say that is a safe bet, but ti dones't really answer the question of who :P

Just got around to reading the thread on Kellhus' Limits and your theory about Meppa being a Kellhus plant:

http://www.second-apocalypse.com/index.php?topic=1052.msg10581#msg10581

Wonderful!

I was thinking of Meppa as a something Moe left behind, if Moe is gone and now Meppa is a lose canon, like a Saccarees minus Kellhus.  I don't know, grabbing for straws or something.

EDIT: You've nearly won me over with the theory, Wilshire.  More plausible that Kellhus is controlling Fanayal than being unable to find and kill him.  :)

Not sure if I already said this, but this is a theory.  When Moe was sitting with Cnaiur after he'd been stabbed, his snakes were rubbing Cnaiur's head and Moe said something like 'I need your strength'.  I believe Moe intended to drain Cnaiur of his life force to enable him to translate his soul into another body.  When Cnaiur chorae'd him, the process was incomplete.  That other body was Meppa.   Moe's psyche (or whatever) partially imprinted on Meppa's causing him to not remember who he was.  Also, maybe it gave him his vast knowledge of the psukhe, allowing him to become the badass cishaurim we all know and love.
No whistling on the slog!

Well that's fucking awesome!  Meppa might be the perfect mix of intellect and passion!  The One!

Never got in on this thread before it was locked. :'(


Unless it has been disproven already, I am a believer in Titirga being Meppa.  Still has his eyes, amnesia from a mountain falling on his head, practiced the psukhe then and now, and the only living human that grasped the meta gnosis without Kellhus' tutelage.
