these discussions come at such an important time, as I
am just finishing RttW. These answer nagging questions
before I had to ask!

as for Horn-as-inhumu, consider Oreb; he seems to ken
outright any inhumu present, and can't keep it to
himself. Would this little inhumu alarm continue to
stay with Horn/Silk just out of loyalty? he seems only
compelled to stay around known inhumu when ordered to,
and then only barely.

Horn-as-inhumu DOES make a lot of sense when one
considers the transformation that takes place over the
scope of the SS books, and the eating-very-little ties
right in, but I can't recall the intimation that his
imitation could be so good as to fool Oreb.
