Or do you mean only thematically?: Teflon responds: Speaking for myself, I meant Typhon and Baldanders are the same thematically. Both represent regressive elements trying to alter humanity's future and prevent the coming of the New Sun. Both employ ancient high technology to do this. Both have been willingly physically altered to accomplish their missions. Both are driven by a lust for power and employ diabolical genius to achieve their ends. Both are master manipulators. To me, anyway, they typify the world of the Old Sun.

While both T. and B. are cast from their towers by Severian, how oh how are they the same person? Or do you mean only thematically? I'm still working my way thru the Short Sun; is there any explanation of what happened to Typhon's kids? Skylla presumably became the famous monster tyrant of Urth. If Tartaros has a identity on Urth it is surely Erebus. What happened to Hieros? -- Crush. -- --
