We don't know where this confrontation takes place. It seems to be that it was decided that the best way to punish Clyntahn is to confront him with the truth so he feels the full guilt for his decisions or is driven crazy before killing him. I can't imagine they will let Clyntahn live when all other inquisitors are killed so "we have no intention of harming" seems strange. Maybe this is just an idea that is being discussed as a possible scenario for dealing with Clyntahn.


It's possible that the key has been unlocked, but more probably not. The most likely scenario for this scene is in Nimue's cave where this little scene could be staged for Clyntahn's benefit by the seijins.

I'm not going to say that anyone here is wrong about this being at the end of the book. But I'll throw out another possibility.

What if this takes place during the raid on St. Thyrmyn, and what has Rayno so shaken is that either, ) he was in the room with Clyntan, or b) Clyntan told him what happened.

Just some thoughts.

Demons!” Clyntahn whispered hoarsely, raising his scepter between them. “Demons! Creatures of hell!

“Hell, Your Grace?” She laughed, and the sound was cold and cruel. “You don’t know the meaning of the word . . . yet.”

“Stay back!” he snapped.

“We have no intention of harming you in any way, Your Grace,” she told him. “None. As Merlin said, we’ve only come to enlighten you. You’ve talked a lot about your special relationship with Schueller and the archangels, so we thought you might like to meet them.”

Hi Drak,

Yup, the punishment fir the crime, NTM it was the perfect end; and yet opens all kinds of future possibilities, warnings and/or portentous foreshadowings, that we will digest or gnaw over for the years before our next fix. 8-)

Just like last time. :lol:

My comment from August 29th. I got this one right. Excuse me while I congratulate myself on correctly interpreting on of RFC's out of order snippets. :lol:
