Some minor quibbles.

We do? I'm focusing on "know" as opposed to "assume."

Not without access to amorphia. Or at least, it's the fact that the Jenoine
blocked a Great Weapon attack (or actually two) that tips Aliera off to the
fact that there's something weird going on with the Jenoine--in fact she
appears to think it should have been "obvious" that they were using
amorphia, although part of that is Aliera kicking herself.

Why would a Jenoine need a GW to kill Verra? They have some pretty capable
tools of their own.

I'm not sure what you mean about Iceflame now "having" three souls.
