Ikurei Conphas... The thing that always gets me about sociopathic characters is how much fun it is treating life like a video game. He makes me appreciate the mass appeal of Grand Theft Auto.

Like Cnaiur, Conphas was definitely memorable. He has a great story arc.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

Lol - yeah, Conphas is such a great character, though GJ will be upset that you didn't say Coithus Athjeari.

Actually, really random addendum to this question - I know Ciphrank will appreciate it.

Do you think that the same story could have been told if Conphas and/or Martemus had been a woman? Would it have complicated (made more problematic than necessary) the eventual narrative dynamics between Kellhus and either of those two gender-swapped characters?
