Latro, man. Latro lives before the Ultimate New Sun arrived in history (the 
theoanthropos). He lives at the beginning of time, when memory is short, 
unlike Severian, who lives toward the end, when memory is almost 
infallible. Thematically, anyway, Latro is what you are looking for. Let's 
hope he lives to finish it the way he planned.
         It would be interesting to read the Soldier books with an eye on 
the Severian quintet, and see how many things are thematically or 
narratively  parallel. I suspect there's a lot.
