I'm in this camp. To start with, Seawrack was a gift from a mysterious
entity, and surely we've learned to beware of such gifts. Krait's suspicion
is a real clue too--in his maunderings, Horn speaks of future deeds on Green
with a real love for Krait, but I don't recall anything of the sort re
Seawrack. Now that Wm. points it out, I too find that arm thing odd, though
I do think it's really missing. (Perhaps she can grow it back?) Especially
since native fauna all seem to have multiple limbs.
