Re: Severian as father of his own mother.

I'm in agreement with the suggestion that Dorcas is pregnant. but 
where is the evidence in the text to suggest that this is in fact 
Katherine, Severian's mother?

Are we saying that Severian is the result of an incestuous 
relationship (Dorcas' first child Ouen & second child by Severian)?

And how does this interbreeding produce the saviour? Surely the 
results would be much less favourable....
