Seswatha's history posted 02 Mar 2006, 22:03 by Abyss, Commoner

Sirwitta, is mentioned in the glossary, C-I wars entry, as a criminal who seduced and impregnanted a Nonmen/Cunuroi woman as was sentenced to the Second Watch on the I-C ark. Gets in, gets out, apparently goes nuts. Chats with a king and supposed to be excuted but imprisoned instead, supposedly has his tongue removed. The king in questions ends up chatting with the Inkys about immortality. Seswatha's entry states an origin of birth, son of a bronezesmith, child prodigy and so on. But such could easily be historically faked. The glossary even states, at various points, that the accuracy is up for debate and contradiction. But I'm wondering, speculating, at a connection... the Mandate dreams seem to only cover his experiences during the Apocalypse. And in Achy's recollections of the search thru the ark for the Heron Spear, Seswatha seems at times to know where he's going... like he's been there before. - Abyss, may be putting a lot in a name, but wonders.... view post

It may be that Siwatta's bastard offspring was Seswatha's ancestor (how many times removed?) - certainly NonMan ancestry is of a piece with Seswatha's prodigious sorcerous ability. view post

Actually if I remember correctyl Sirwitta's bastard daughter fits in somewhere on the Anasurimbor family tree. I'll have to try hunting around as much as possible for confirmation on this but it seems to me I either read it or Scott mentioned it somewhere. view post

I don't remember the story of his death, but the Mandate definitely has his heart, so I think his death is implied. view post

Yea, the whole mummified heart thing definitly implies death :) view post
