Subject: RE: (urth) Pas's Two Heads Date: Fri, 8 Nov 2002 10:14:59 -0800 There is nothing in the books which seems to me to suggest that the appearance of the Gods of Mainframe is necessarily based upon the appearance of the bodies in which they resode when they were scanned -- it seems to be more a matter of either self-image or a chosen image. (Does Tartaros manifest visibly?) The "scan" seems to be a sort of brain-snapshot, or perhaps soul-snapshot. So even if it was taken when Typhon was grafted onto Piaton, it would only be a scan of the one brain. It is not at all clear to me why Pas has two heads, but it seems clear that this is a choice Typhon made, either consciously or un-. It might have some reference to the Piaton body; it seems likely to me that he would want to scan himself at the last possible moment before the launch of the _Whorl_, to preserve as much of his self as possible. --Blattid --
