Hello all,

(Back after about a year's absence from the list).

Two brief speculations on the history of the guild of torturers:

1) The tradition that masters of the guild wear a cloak but no shirt comes 
from Severian's imprisonment in the time of Typhon's reign, when he wore 
only the officer's cape. Having Severian be a founder of his own guild would 
be the sort of irony that is common in UotNs.
2) Severian, remembering his time in the classroom of Master Malrubius, 
quotes Malrubius as speaking about Severian's diligence, and trailing off 
with, "There was a boy..." Is it generally accepted that he was speaking of 
Palaemon (before his exile)?
