Another strange question, sorry

Post by Kacoo » Thu Jun 21, 2018 5:18 am

This is my first dedicated reread of the firestaff stuff, I've done spotty stuff but not a concerted effort.

My new strange question as I've just gotten to the point where tarrin has knocked out Henri on Rene's ship and done his monologue to Dolanna about how he didn't choose the were life and if he could go back he would. Then I remembered that after he gains the firestaff at the end of shadow realm. He has the opportunity to make that decision willfully but Jasana takes it from him. So my question is do the rest of you think that his experiences shaped him after this point(where he certainly seems like if he could remove his were nature he would) to ensure that he would remain a were.

Also if I'm sensing that these kinds of questions may continue to crop up, would you (the admins/other users) prefer that they were in one topic, or not posted at all or you have no preference?

I think after that point in the story, Tarrin came to terms with the his were condition. His journey through the desert, where Fara'Nae poked at him, forced him to face who he was, and ended up with him accepting himself. Also, after that, he discovered he had a daughter, and son, he spent 'quality' time with Jesmind, fell in love with Kimmie, and found a place for himself within the Were-cat society.

If he had got his memory, back prior to being turned, he would have realised all that he would miss out on not being Tarrin the were-cat. I do think as well, he would remember his commitment to the Goddess, to Niami, which would make him choose to be turned.

Thinking of this reminds me how he gained power in sorcery/druidic magic, after being turned back. It makes me want to document all the power spikes out MC had during the series ;)

I don't mind a thread per question, gives me something new to open, and there's not a lot of chatter going on anyway.
