Ichoroi? Nonmen? posted 27 Jan 2006, 13:01 by heasy, Commoner

Hi Sorry if this has already been answered. Throughout the first two books Bakker mentions the Inchoroi and the Nonmen...but im still not clued up to what or who they actually are.....and who's side their on. Im going from memory here, but im sure the nonmen were on the side of man in the first apocalypse, but at the end of the book they are in charge of the Srancs? These two peoples are obviously Bakkers substitute for the more commonly used elvish. Are these inchoroi and nonmen the same...but from different tribes or something.. also the battle in the first book between kellhus and the magical character on the horse (which got me hooked on the books...) who was he fighting?? cheers view post

Actually this has been answered - several times - but since it [i:3e7qacmn]is[/i:3e7qacmn] a confusing matter, I won't mind explaining it :) I'll try to say as much as I can without giving TTT spoilers : The Inchoroi are an alien race, who claim to have traveled across the space from another star, and invaded Eärwa. They are usually viewed as the "bad guys" of the story, and have no relation with Tolkien's Elves - at least, none that I can see. The Nonmen do have a relation with Tolkien's Elves - in fact, I think Scott once referred to them as "fallen elves". They were once the dominant race of Eärwa, but they are much diminished now. Although the bulk of their race did stand alongside Men in the First Apocalypse, some of them - the Erratics - have become corrupted and serve the Consult. The Nonmen we have seen at the end of TWP are an example - and so is the Nonman warrior-magi we've seen at the beginning of TDTCB. That Nonman is Mekeritrig; I can't reveal much more than that without being spoilerish. Suffice to say he's an important character and that more will be revealed in TTT :D And, I was also captivated by that battle, it remains one of the most powerful and intriguing scenes of PoN, in my opinion. view post
