My bet is it'll be a combined effort but Kelmomas will ultimately tip the scales in the most significant way. I believe his single purpose in life (Esmenet) will somehow halt or confuse the No-god at a crucial point. Say, when he's about to have a duel with Achiaman but Esmenet throws herself in between.

The fact that Kelmomas has two souls in him likely creates a situation where he has some degree of control over the No-god intermittently. Someone told Kelmomas he doesn't even realize that his two parts are constantly changing places. The No-god at this point appears to be just a soul-crucible-construct, an ethereal machine. And no matter how powerful the programming, the Dunyadin-Anasurimbor in it will subvert it eventually.

I voted for Achamian, as I agree with the idea that he will be a Seswatha-type figure over the course of the Second Apocalypse. I do think Mimara will have an important role in saving the world as well (and so will Akka Jr.), but I could only vote for one, so...

Nobody saves the world. The Consult wins.

I'm kind of in love with the fact that Kellhus is high in contention, despite having been killed already.  Who cares if the for Truth, it is Strength that saves!

Thanks.
I really do think that The Consult will be successful in shutting the world off, but maybe a hero will still end up ruining their designs.

My vote is for Kellhus. And if not him the combo Akka&Mim.
It would be a big surprise if the Dunsult wins, but who knows, we are in the fucking darkness (that comes before).
Know what your slaves believe, and you will always be their master.

Akka's son isn't on the list?

He's probably included in the "Other" category as he is, after all, a new character.
