I think it only stands to reason that Severian would become a vanished person if Blue is Ushas. Remember in Apu Punchau's tomb when the Hierodules explain to Severian that even though he was an eidolon, as he took in the food and water and air of his environment it would be incorporated into his body and make it real? Severian would most certainly evolve with his surroundings and whatever created the polyploidy in all the other creatures would affect him as well. The other Severian's are perhaps visitors from the corridors of time. Don --
