Simas Question posted 12 Jan 2009, 14:01 by Vomikron Noxis, Candidate

So I'm re-reading the trilogy in anticipation of TJE and I find myself wondering at what point the Consult managed to replace Simas with a sorcerous skin spy. Naturally, there's the reveal that Simas is hardly the kindly old codger that Achamian imagines, but is he already a skinspy at that point in TDTCB as well? And if he is, what is he pushing for exactly in this section? One is led to believe that the Mandate has certainly been infiltrated at that point, given the deaths of informants, but have they gone so far as to replace simas at that point? ~rl view post

I would say yes and that Simas's job was to keep them running in circles over the infiltration and inform the consult as to any Mandate operations. view post

I'm just rereading the series and I think the early parts of TDTCB definitely hint that Simas is a skin-spy. One common thing with skin-spies I have noticed that they don't bother to act out the effects of age and infirmity that rigorously. Nautzera envies Simas of how he still has good eyes and can read for himself. Nautzera is also aware that Simas is only faking his niceness to his students to gain their trust. view post

I'm fairly sure my boss is a skin spy... view post

Curethan, There is only one way to find out. All you need to do is get into a sword fight with your boss and when you are killed, we will have our proof. view post

Early Consult designs for the skin spy called for its spinal column to glow bright red during sex, but they eventually decided this was just too fucking stupid. :) ~rl view post
