I know nothing, NOZ-ZINK! about Dragaeran reproductive biology, but 
it strikes me that her death may have ended Sethra's reproductive 
usefulness--it seems to work that way, normally, at least.  And 
there's always the situation of different species and hybridization 
(Vlad, it appears, is not sterile).
