I'd really like to know if Cnaiür is in fact actually dead for good.  I base this on nothing more than a lack of a black and white "Cnaiür IS DEAD" sign and a mad hope for his return.
Wisdom was naught but cunning made
grand, a weapon forged to win empty battles.

You're in luck!  Cnaiur, Leweth, Abraham Lincoln, and Socrates all show up to declare that they are in fact dead!  Cnaiur actually admits that he's actually been dead inside for a long time :(  Zombies and Xanax

What about Tupac ?
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Thanks to Bakkerfans on Twitter for linking to this giveaway  ;)

My prediction - Kayutas will be sacrificed by Kellhus and become the No-God, closing the Nau-Cayuti / Kayutas couplet.
You are the fist that beats us.
