Why could GW have not assigned mythological names to beings on Urth who are from other planets, and mythological monster names for other-worldly invaders of Urth? Of course, if yours or this alternate nomenclature is a true Rosetta Stone, then Nessus should be an alien being. Actually, I'm unaware of any reason not presume all the beings (regardless of power) are not either humans who have extended their physical form and power through technology OR are whose existence, like the Hieros, is the result of human activity (ala "Tracking Song"). Can you elaborate on why even beings such as Erebus and Skylla could not be human? -- Crush --
