When this topic first started. I checked the wiki and found it had 2112 as her birth year anyway. This predates TUC release (i think) I wonder where they got that date from?

It was probably someone who had early access to a copy of TUC, as the only date we had before was 2125 in TWLW appendices (and prior to that we had no dates at all).

Indeed, I think it was Wert who edited it when he finished reading his TUC ARC.

I have mixed feelings on it being ret-conned.  On the one hand, it was interesting as it was, but on the other, possibly just a relic of previous drafts.  As, possibly, was the idea of her poisoning others.  I mean, that part never really made much sense, unless she was further goaded by the Consult.

Who knows though, I guess maybe we can only hope for an Atrocity Tale...

It most likely was, yes (or someone else with an early copy? can't remember who else had one). I think I did see that date on the wiki shortly after creating this thread, but back then I couldn't know it came from TUC.

I also think it doesn't make that much sense for Iva to have poisoned En-Kaujalau. Seems like the Consult could have killed him via other means if they really wanted him dead, and it would be much harder for her to do so, it wasn't like she had access to him like she did to her own husband. And I think they already had what they wanted from her with Nau-Cayti, anyway.
It's possible that her involvement in En-Kaujalau's death was something fully thought up by later historians, given that there is controversy about it (while everyone seems to accept that she did indeed poison Nau-Cayti).

I'd love to see an Atrocity Tale featuring Iva, but I know I shouldn't get my hopes up too much...
