The Great Ordeal / Re: [TGO Spoilers] Whale Mothers

The Ark, which was apparently once a living thing in-and-of itself, is basically a super Tekne version of a Whale Mother, one that births Inchoroi instead of Dunyain.

It's interesting to note also, that the Consult refers to ancient Inchoroi as the Old Fathers, while the ancient Dunyain women are referred to as the First Mothers. Very Lovecraftian, cosmic horror sort of thing there.

Interesting idea, I'd forgotten about Jiricet completely. I'd thought of Sirwitta as the first Anasurimbor for a while (or rather his issue, Cimoira). She might simply have been the first Human/Nonman hybrid though. Either way something is up with both of these tales.

The Anasurimbor line coming from "Lord Torturer's son" would be yet another (and pretty clear cut) reference to The Book of the New Sun, which is cool.
