But Ratty, way back when, someone, maybe you, silenced me on some rant by pointing out that Cutthroat is loved wherever he goes. By everyone. Even when he is menaced underground it is the immediate affection that everyone seems to feel for him immediately that saves him. How does that follow a Cain reading? The mark? If so, that needs a bit of explanation. (Sorry I should look back in the archives, or even in the novella, but it's just too much....) -alga --
