Cnaiur-is he dead? posted 04 Sep 2008, 07:09 by skafadi, Candidate

I certainly hope not. He's one of my favorite characters and he'd be a great part of the Aspect-Emperor series. I notice that his last appearance in TTT was quite open-ended- he just kinda went with the skin-spy who looked like Serwe. So, I have formed a Theory (with a capital T, no less). I think that the Consult, through their skin-spies, will manipulate Cnaiur into becoming their new Horde-General against Kellhus' Great Ordeal. He might be crazy, but he's still the only one who knows Kellhus for what he is, and probably the most brilliant tactician after Kellhus himself. Furthermore, the Consult know how much he hates the Dunyain and that he's probably their best chance of beating Kellhus in battle. So yes...there that is. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW BOOK! :D view post

i found the scene at the end of TTT where cnaiur kisses moenghus and touches him with the chorae and the following events to be almost cryptic. it took me a couple tries to read it, but at the end of that scene, after cnaiur realizes that he killed moenghus i'm pretty sure cnaiur slits his own throat, and then everything goes black because he's bleeding to death. i'm gonna reiterate what someone else wrote in another thread. i think the "spirit" of cnaiur will live on through his son with serwe, who is ironically named moenghus. but i think cnaiur is done as a character, it would depreciate the significance of cnaiur's journey and his meeting with moenghus if he survives into the aspect emperor. view post

As much as I enjoy Cnaiur, I too would be upset if he lived into the Aspect-Emperor. The end scene with Cnaiur was great. I always assumed that he slit his own throat too. view post

There is a sticking point that I see in regards to Cnaiur being gone for good. One of the last scenes where Aurang told the little boy a secret that not even death removes one from the plate. view post

Sorry that quote is from a different area my mistake. Please no one try to kill me for that. view post

Yeah, I really don't have any desire to see Cnaiur in the next book -- though I have faith in Bakker to do something worthwhile with him if its part of the grander plan. His ending in the darkness was perfect. ~rl view post

Well, according to the "What has come before..." part in TJE... (highlight, in case some complain about the "spoilers" from the synopsis to TJE) [color=#FFFFFF:2cnoxaab]...But he [Kellhus] had made one mistake. He had allow Cnaiür urs Skiötha, a Scylvendi chieftain who had accompanied him on his trek to the Three Seas, to learn too much of his true nature. Before his death, the barbarian revealed these truths to Drusas Achamian...[/color:2cnoxaab] view post
