I think this is a meaningless distinction. Their minds are not responsible for it. But the mind/body duality, even if it has some truth for humans, has no meaning for an Inhumi. Their minds *right down to their deepest souls* are no more than a genetic ghost conjured up by their blood-drinking bodies as a chameleon-game to facilitate more blood-drinking - a fake so deep that the poor minds themselves believe it to be true, but a fake nontheless. The only thing about them that is *not* borrowed is their genetics, their bodies, and it is the only thing that can be meaningfully judged. hartshorn --
