So I was wondering if anyone had any theories about Wutteat being alive at the end of WLW even though his neck was broken by Ciogli during the C√Ľno-Inchoroi Wars.

Well he wasn't, was he? He's described as undead in the text, with rotting flesh. For some reason he is not allowed to die until the connection with the gods is cut. The dragon is a victim himself.

Something about the dragon physiology seems to result in a Topos within the dragon itself. I suspect Wutteat, likely the only dragon with a soul, is the only Wracu that could become undead. (I strongly suspect Wutteat's possession of a soul relates to why the Black Heaven cannot command him.)

It's interesting to note that wracu cries are like children screaming from far away, something similar to how Inchies laugh. The wracu are interesting because they don't seem to possess the insatiable lusts of the skin spies and Sranc, likely because they're based on Wutteat's Bios.

I say that Wutteat is a cybertronic organism.

The Inchoroi hit Cybertron before the Civil War in this Universe ;).

Imagine the crossover potential! Second Apocalypse as done by Michael Bay. At least the Gnosis would be pretty to look at. :P

*Cue evil executive laughter*

It's okay. Scott himself has said TV execs flee whenever they hear about the Consult. Which I say is shit. Let HBO tackle it.

Anyway, back on subject. About the Wracu and lust, isn't Wutteat's scales turning red mentioned as a lust (somewhat) during the ASE saga and in Four Revelations of Cinial'jin? Not say it's concrete proof, but there had to be a reason they brought him with them. Maybe Inchoroi made him that way? They do like tweaking and sculpting. Who the hell knows what they originally looked like before the billions upon billions of Grafts.

Even HBO has it's limits. Besides, don't you feel for the poor casting director who has to explain why the mo-cap guy has to have a blue screen wired to his phallus?

I quite honestly believe that the best way to translate this series to screen is through animation. A shame animation is basically dead in the west outside of comedy series and kids stuff.

That may be a little unfair. While it seems that way, if the animators behind Avatar or Korra got hold of it, it'd be some mad stylized work. Or perhaps HBO doing an animated series once more, Spawn style? Spawn was brutal, dark, utterly adult. Hell, it'd honestly be the only way you may be able to get away with some of the material on the books and have it on screen.

"We've captured 1500 dongs and VFX'd 99,000 more for the Sranc charge at Mangedda. Only 30 seconds of screen time, but it's...rather mesmerizing."

Another big question is why dragons can't wear chorae.

Maybe if you give a dragon one they bury it in a horde somewhere rather than risk losing it in combat.
