Ah "what came before" where cnaiur is stated as dead.

I knew I had read awaken in that context somewhere though, however since it's in the what came before section it carries little weight.

I missed it at first because, honestly, I've never read one of those sections before, despite all the read and rereads I've done.

I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

You could reconcile the inconsistencies if it was one of the Inchoroi who had been scattered to the far corners of the earth, as Esmenet reads in the Sagas in TTT. It posed as Husyelt and bestowed the Tusk but later died, leaving A&A still as the last two, remaining in the Ark.

Good point, that is also plausible.  However, that doesn't reconcile Aurang's statement about being driven out of the Ark though.

Good to see you back though Bolivar.

MG'll be happy. He'd say something like "Collective Forfiture of Sanity!" or something ;).

Nice to see your monicker around, Bolivar.

You were cheating on us with other hobbies?!?

Also, beware, dread TUC spoilers abound in the doors and corners...

"You think this a reunion?” Cnaiür urs Skiötha screams down at him. “A meeting of old friends?” Mimara feels more than sees the kick to Achamian’s face. Terror flushes through her. “This is not another favour from your Whore, Fortune! You are not of the People."
