Hmmm. You know, I hadn't thought that Kieron would be reincarnated--I
had always assumed that he'd come out physically in order to father
Deverra. But then, Steve says that Deverra was fathered in the Paths
of the Dead, so maybe he doesn't need to come out at all for that and
the bit about coming to get the sword is just a red herring. Or maybe
Steve was kidding about Kieron being the father. It *is* sort of
Wagnerian, after all...

Be witty if you can,
But be cheerful if it kills you.
