Sev was there for less than a week. The sun had already been wounded, all the space-worthy ships were gone, the peasants were in revolt, and Piaton was dragging his heals about giving up his body, all before Sev came on the scene. Typhon died not too long after Sev disappeared. Typhon's problems were all of his own doing; Sev had nothing to do with any of it. -Roy --
