I seem to recall some discussion of this in the past ... but ...
it seems to me that the common factor between Jonas and Jolenta
-- aside from their names beginning with the syllable "Jo" --
would consist in their both having an artificial nature (though
Jolenta _begins_ as a natural person, Doctor T. artifically
enhances her ... sort of the Pamela Anderson of posthistory).=20

Perhaps the Claw (or Severian) cannot heal artificial persons,
but only natural persons ...
