1. Sethra may be using a more technical definition of "god" than
Morrolan is, based on duplocation.
2. Since the Jenoine are manifestly very powerful, if they are "gods"
according to Morrolan's definition, then the Jenoine we've encountered
*did* survive the creation of the Great Sea of Amorphia. (Or their
ancestors did.) Sethra merely says it "destroyed all of the Jenoine
who then lived on this world."


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