IIRC In "Castle of the Otter" Wolfe says that a shadow implies the sun
because the sun *stands behind* (as in, supports, affirms, etc) the one that
casts a shadow. Also, that the "shadow of the torturer" represents death
when he performs an execution because he blots out the sun.

It would have been cool if the Ascians *were* from the equator. It would
have been very Lupine if they had been.  I'm sure Wolfe would kick himself
that he didn't think of it at the time.
